Things are going quite well with getting back on track. I worked out six days last week, though my workouts were often short. It still beats sitting on the couch! This routine is definitely more manageable than the one I was on, but I am going to start adding some gym time during the week, partly so I can start strength training.
My water intake last week was awesome. I still had too many beers, but a lot of them were light beer, which helps some. I'll probably be drinking beer more than wine this week as well, given that I'm going to bars that specialize in beer a couple nights and I'm spending the weekend with some non-wine drinkers, but I won't be around heavy drinkers much at all this week, which is good.
I went over my calories a couple of days last week, which is okay. That wasn't my focus for the week, and I'm still trying to get back in the swing of things. I've upped my fruit intake majorly, but veggies are (as always) more of a problem. I like some veggies, but just not by themselves. I'll snack on fruit as well as eating it with meals, but veggies are only side dishes for me. I don't know that I'll ever change that.
I didn't lose much weight in the past week, but my tummy is looking a lot better already. The bloated feeling/look has already gone away completely, which I love. This week, I want to sustain the things I started last week, but stay in my calorie range more days. I'm going out to eat tomorrow for sure, then I'll be out of town over the weekend, so I won't make it every day, but I would like to make it the four days I am at home. My main focus, though, is still on water and exercise!
