~*~ WTF??? Check in for 9/20-9/25 ~*~
Recap of last week’s goals:
Stay within my calorie, protein, fat and carb ranges – for the most part, I did it. There were a couple days where I was over (didn’t help that all my meals from Friday-Sunday were out of the house!)
Take my supplements every day – did it every day since Wednesday! Woot!
Have at least 4 breakfast smoothies –I had 3, due to poor planning and running out of yogurt
Bring lunches from home at least 4 times – managed 3, poor planning again
Strength train 3x – managed 2x, Monday and Thursday
Run 3x –gulp, managed 1x, Thursday
Zumba Monday –check!
Yoga Saturday –check!
I did not have ice cream OR a blizzard!
BONUS CHALLENGE: I drank 3461 calories from Monday, September 13-Sunday, September 19. I had more Starbucks than I should’ve, I had more alcohol than I normally do (I was out for girls’ night Saturday), and the number still doesn’t seem bad to me, especially considering I drink my breakfast!
I MADE TIME TO:
*Start a fun project – I signed up and bought the kit for a cake decorating class that I’m taking for the month of October!
*Decided that I’m going to work on building my recipe collection over winter with lots of healthy options for all courses – entrees, desserts, appetizers, sides, etc, etc.
Part One - Exercise & Nutrition!
Last week, I was able to bring lunch from home three times and made it to zumba and yoga, which I am most proud of.
This week, I know that I will be able to step up my nutrition game even more, and get more exercise in!
My exercise focus this week will be on starting the new strength training routine I created this morning, getting in running twice, and going to zumba and yoga. I need to step it up and change it up if I want to see results!
My nutrition focus this week will be on cutting down pre-prepared (read: take out) foods and using my healthy dinner recipes!
My awesome new clothing in smaller sizes is my reason for being extra determined this week. I want to be able to continue rocking them, and buy more clothing like them!
Part Two - Happiness and Well-being
Come up with an idea for a ritual that you can do for yourself once a week, whether it is a run, a bubble bath, a meal, an indulgence, anything.
*My ritual is my yoga class. I had to stop it for a year because of funds, but I’m making room in my budget, because I feel so much more balanced and relaxed when I go once a week.*
Motivate me this week by asking how my meals are tasting and my muscles are feeling, since I’m switching up my ST routine!
