well i did plan on doing this on sunday and i got sidetracked and the next thing you know... its tuesday.
so last week to reflect i thought i had a GREAT week. I stayed in calories all but one day. i learned a very valuable margarita lesson.. i picked up new tricks on how to get extra exercise at work and made myself a little reminder game to drink my water. so to recap..
1. the one day i blew my calories out of the water was the same day I learned my margarita lesson. If you are going to go to a restaurant that offers a special of .99 cent margaritas beware... when I came home and logged them.. I was so proud of myself to start with because I only ate 1/3 of my dinner and boxed the rest... and my caloreis were great THEN... the 3 margaritas were entered and I discovered for those calories I could have had instead SIXTEEN ultra light beers so um yeah... margaritas are the enemy...
2. A friend *thanks tiffy and holly* started a bathroom challenge so each time I went to the bathroom at work last week *three or four days I participated* I tried to get in exercise... one day I pulled 20 squats and 45 wall pushups *that was the highest day* but trying to just squeeze in 10 wall pushups every time makes a world of difference
3. the water bottles I drink from are the equivalent of two glasses of water... so I took four paperclips out of my desk and on the shelf right in front of my face where my monitor sits I placed four paperclips on the left side each morning... my goal is to have at least three but preferably all four to the right side by the end of the workday. Each time I finish a bottle of water I slide a paperclip over!
so yay to me on getting in the workouts this week at home and at work OH and 1 day I did 12 sets of stairs instead of 4. And yay to me on eating well last week!
Now the bad news.. My foods been so so this week so far... my water a struggle yesterday...and because I put in 12 hours at work yesterday trying to finish a project AND have a two hour commute... no exercise yesterday not even in the bathroom..super stressful day and it probably would have helped...
and this morning when I weighed in after such a great week im showing a two pound gain which is really playing with my head and my emotions.. so im hoping its water/sodium and will try the scale again tonight and take the number if i have to. but it doesnt help my motivation. GREAT weeks are supposed to spawn at least little losses.
so there is my weekly update i hope to make next weeks on time :)
oh and i still havent used my spark phone numbers because the time i find i want to call most is like six thirty in the morning and/or seven at night and i just feel like those are bad times to bother people..i will get passed this though. :)
