I love seeing all the posts from you on your fitness minutes!! You are all inspiring!
I am waiting for my inner athlete to come poucing out to challenge you, but she is very shy. I keep coaxing her though. I see small improvements in my amount of fitness, but truth be told...I can do much better. I will do much better.
Well, my food intake for the last two weeks was less than stellar with some very good, balanced, healthy days and some that were frankly, all but! It amazes me. And not in a good way either. I know what I should and shouldn't eat. I have been on diet programs before, and really, it is not rocket science. The basic underlying thing is that calories burned needs to be more than calories in! And I know that there is more to it than that for overall health, but for strictly weight loss...Its a basic mathematical equation. Cal burned>Cal in.
But why is it so hard?!?!
Yesterday I weighed in and lost 2.6 lbs since December 13th. Yea me!!! This was great for me. I know I did not eat well over the holidays and I have struggled to be within my ranges since the new year started. So 2.6 lbs loss over the past month is fantastic! Okay, here I go again...yea me!!!
I meet with my doctor next Friday for another weigh in, and I hope to lose a bit more. I'm not greedy. Small weight losses are totally, fully and most assuredly acceptable!!!!! None will be turned away. None will be frowned upon. All will be welcomed with open arms!
Today, I ran a SP report to see my weight loss over time compared to my goal when I signed up. Wow. Shocker. And not in a good way! From Jan to July of 2011, I was doing okay, and on a general weight loss track. Then from August to December...not so good. Gained weight; waffled back and forth. No progress.
Well, time to turn that ship around. And I can feel the rudders moving! I have created a profile on our Wii Fit Plus and have selected days for doing different fitness activities to keep it interesting. I just need to follow it.
I broke a tooth on Dec 23rd and had emergency repair to hold me over until now. Since then, I have had mouth pain everyday and I have been eating softer food. Even salads have been too fibre-y for me to eat with any effectiveness or pleasure.
And I have been feeling a bit sorry for myself. And have permitted myself to eat not so well.
Thursday of this week, I finally had the surgery to remove the tooth. While I'm still feeling the effects of it, my mood is much better. This pain with go away at it heals. Phew!
I'm hoping to be back to eating salads soon! Its funny how I actually miss them now!
My Sparkfriend LOVINGMYSELF101 posted a great blog about getting prepared. And it got me to thinking about my own preparations. I need to follow her lead and get more prepared. Prepared for shopping; prepared for eating; prepared for snacking on the go. Prepared in order to see success!
This week, my new goal is to be prepared for my meals, menu planning, and make my lunch for work everyday.
So my goals for this coming week are:
1-Track food daily
2-Drink lots of water
3-Move my body for at least 10 mins everyday
4-Plan and prepare my food for the week
I wish everyone a successful week!
Thanks for reading!
