Week One: The good, the bad, and the .....

Wednesday, July 13, 2011


I have completed week one of building healthier habits. I am pleased with my results, and can look at all of them because even the "bad" is better then how I was living in the past.

The good-My weight loss goal is to loose 1.5 pound a week, I lost 2.8 pounds this first week. I made my exercise minutes goal.

The Bad-I did not make my weekly total calories burned goal. There are some days I did not meet nutrition goal, either too much or not enough.

The hopeful- I recorded in my nutrition tracker every day, and it is helping plan better this week. I have been walking, but have decided to get my bicycle in running condition. I like riding better than walking.

My first month is for setting new habits. Get used to spending time every day out side moving, get used to thinking before I put something in my mouth, and most important, having my "brown bag" meals ready so that I don't just grab something at work.

Just before I started this new journey, I was looking at my Facebook profile. I had just posted that I would not be playing games for a while, and I needed to cut back on the amount of time I was spending online. I went to my info, a saw a quote I put there, but had forgotten about.
"It all adds up; never discount your efforts, because small efforts build big things. One word doesn't make a novel, but one word does begin a novel, and from that small beginning everything else follows. Even if it's just "The", write something on that blank page." --Laurell K. Hamilton

This past week was a small effort and it WILL lead to big things.

    You're right - every step/effort helps!

I too just started on my efforts again after being "off" for a while, so I know how you feel!

If you're on Oahu, let me know - maybe we can work on these efforts together! I too prefer to bike than walk. And walk over run. And I'm loving my Zumba classes I'm attending.

Good luck!
