START WEIGHT: 208 END WEIGHT: ??? Didn't weigh myself before eating today, so I don't know. I also didn't weigh myself after last Sunday, either.

MY SINGLE GREATEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: I got lots of compliments from people at work about how good I'm looking, as well as several people asking what I'm doing. I was proud of myself for how realistic my plan is--I may be trying to monitor calories and watch what I eat, but I'm not depriving myself. In terms of working out, I don't kill myself or work out for hours and hours a day.

DID I MEET MY NUTRITIONAL GOALS FOR THE WEEK? WHY OR WHY NOT? Not so much. I'm chalking this up to being a "break" week. I had 3.5 snow days off of school this week, and I proceeded to do pretty much nothing but lounge around. I knew it wasn't necessarily the healthiest choice, but at the same time, I felt like I needed it a little bit. I didn't track what I ate past lunch on Tuesday, but I also didn't gorge myself on stuff all week, either.

DAYS I TRACKED MY EATING: Sunday, Monday, part of the day Tuesday

DID I MEET MY FITNESS GOALS FOR THE WEEK? WHY OR WHY NOT? also not so much. I worked out on Sunday and that was about it. While I definitely enjoyed (and needed) the time to lounge around in my jammies and watch TV or read, I must admit I kinda missed working out--just not enough to get up and do it.

DAYS I EXERCISED: Sunday

THINGS TO WORK ON FOR NEXT WEEK:
Get back on track!
* track meals, snacks, etc. as diligently as possible
* aim for 3-for-3 on strength training, 5-for-5 on cardio.
* increase water intake throughout the day, not just for workouts

START WEIGHT: 210 END WEIGHT: 208--for a total of 15 pounds since the start of this school year, and 7 pounds since Christmas!

MY SINGLE GREATEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: I tried on a pair of work pants that I hadn't been able to wear for a long time, and they fit perfectly!

DID I MEET MY NUTRITIONAL GOALS FOR THE WEEK? WHY OR WHY NOT? I tracked my food for 6 full days and for all but dinner on the other day. On that day (Monday), we went to a restaurant participating in "Restaurant Week." I had an elaborate 3- course meal, and had no clue how to go about tracking the calories since it was all eclectic stuff.

DAYS I TRACKED MY EATING: Sunday, all but dinner on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

DID I MEET MY FITNESS GOALS FOR THE WEEK? WHY OR WHY NOT? no--I only got in one day of strength training and two days of cardio. I started my new job this week (I'm now one of the reading specialists at my school, instead of being a classroom teacher), which involved staying late several nights to set up my office, move stuff from my old classroom, etc. I think the earliest I got home this week was 5:30--and I can leave work at 4!

DAYS I EXERCISED: Sunday, Tuesday, Saturday

THINGS TO WORK ON FOR NEXT WEEK:
* continue to track meals, snacks, etc. as diligently as possible
* aim for 3-for-3 on strength training, 5-for-5 on cardio.

START WEIGHT: 212 END WEIGHT: 210 (though I hit 209 for a couple of days--darn girl time and the ensuing water weight!)

MY SINGLE GREATEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: I got some great news at work!

DID I MEET MY NUTRITIONAL GOALS FOR THE WEEK? WHY OR WHY NOT? I tracked my food for 6 full days and for about half of the 7th.

DAYS I TRACKED MY EATING: Sunday, Monday, 1/2 of Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

DID I MEET MY FITNESS GOALS FOR THE WEEK? WHY OR WHY NOT? I was 3-for-3 on strength training this week and 5-for-5 on cardio! Admittedly, having 3 days off from work (MLK Day and 2 snow days) made that easier.

DAYS I EXERCISED: Sunday, Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

THINGS TO WORK ON FOR NEXT WEEK:
* continue to track meals, snacks, etc. as diligently as possible
* aim for 3-for-3 on strength training, 5-for-5 on cardio.

START WEIGHT: 213 END WEIGHT: 212

MY SINGLE GREATEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: I tried on a pair of jeans in my usual size this week--and they FIT! I've tried jeans on every now and then and have been depressed each time, because pairs in my usual size wouldn't even make it up to my hips! And I refused to go up a size--that's just me being ridiculously stubborn. However, I tried on a pair, and they fit like a glove--I was so excited that I bought two pairs!

DID I MEET MY NUTRITIONAL GOALS FOR THE WEEK? WHY OR WHY NOT? I tracked my food 5 full days, and part of one more! It included tracking the healthy stuff as well as the I-wish-I-could-pretend-I-hadn't-eaten-that
!

DAYS I TRACKED MY EATING: Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, part of Thursday, and Friday

DID I MEET MY FITNESS GOALS FOR THE WEEK? WHY OR WHY NOT? I did 2 out of 3 strength training days; I also did cardio on those days. I did cardio an additional day for a total of 4 days. Not the 5 I aimed for, but I worked late on Monday and Thursday, and ran a ton of errands on Saturday. I'm happy with the 4 that I was able to accomplish.

DAYS I EXERCISED: Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday

THINGS TO WORK ON FOR NEXT WEEK:
* continue to track meals, snacks, etc. as diligently as possible
* aim for 3-for-3 on strength training, 5-for-5 on cardio.

START WEIGHT: 215 END WEIGHT: 213 (mostly shifts in water, including the start weight

MY SINGLE GREATEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: My 30th birthday on Friday

DID I MEET MY NUTRITIONAL GOALS FOR THE WEEK? WHY OR WHY NOT? Earlier in the week, yes. However, as the week went on and I was taken to dinner, given cakes, etc., I didn't track. Not necessarily to hide or pretend it didn't happen, but because I don't always know the caloric value--or how to find it--for certain foods.

DAYS I TRACKED MY EATING: Wednesday was my best tracking day--I tracked all meals and snacks. I tracked some meals on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.

DID I MEET MY FITNESS GOALS FOR THE WEEK? WHY OR WHY NOT? I did 2 out of 3 strength training days; I also did cardio on those days. However, my goal is to do cardio 5 days. I wrap up each exercise session with some sort of stretching and/or foam roller exercise

DAYS I EXERCISED: Monday, Wednesday

THINGS TO WORK ON FOR NEXT WEEK:
* track meals, snacks, etc. as diligently as possible
* aim for 3-for-3 on strength training, 5-for-5 on cardio.
