This week started poorly. I exceeded calories on both Sunday and Monday. I also exceeded calories on Friday. Three out of 7 days was definitely not good. I got my fat percentage done at the Y this week and it came out to 39.9%. That means 68 pounds of me is fat. A person my age is considered normal if their percentage fat is between 25 and 36%. So I am pretty close to normal. I would like my fat to be closer to mid range normal. I have decided to set my weight goal at 160 pounds. That is only 10 pounds lighter than I am right now! I can be there in the next 3 to 4 months. I also have decided to cut back on exercise after the 5% challenge ends in 2 weeks. I will have a rest day each week again. For the next 2 weeks I will probably still exercise 7 out of 7 days, but I may slow down when I walk so I don't stress my legs as much. I also think that I won't run one day this week since I seem to have done something to my right knee. I was standing in the grocery store earlier this week when a pain shot through my right knee. It was only momentarily, it did not repeat and I was fine for the rest of the week, but I don't need to stress it. So how did I do this week?
1. Plan menu for Monday through Saturday on Monday.
I did plan them but they became flexible, so the meals planned were not necessarily the meals cooked. The only high calorie meal was Fridays and that was a planned meal LOL
2. Do ST at the gym on MWF
3. 30 minutes on stationary bike and 20 minutes on elliptical on MWF.
4. Walk 5K on Tu/Th/Sat, will run one of the days for the virtual 5K.
I actually walked 4.29 miles on Saturday, but I did it at a slower pace.
5. Work in my garden spread fertilizer, weed and train the tomatoes. Turn the compost pile.
I did spread the fertilizer and train the tomatoes, but they are growing so fast that I need to do it again. Did not turn the compost, It was too hot to do it today. Goal not met.
6. Supervise DD cooking one meal. Already done.
That was easy wasn't it? LOL She will be starting tomorrows dinner tonight since it cooks overnight. So she will have cooked next weeks meal on Sunday
7. Stay within calorie range Monday through Saturday.
Goal most definitely not met
Well Tomorrow starts a new week with a new resolve!
