Week 2 March 19, 2012 Blog... What will I do this week?

Monday, March 19, 2012

So last week I tried to do everything I listed, my water, having healthy choices in my house, cooking 3 x from Sparkpeople recipes and eat a replacement meal bar shake once a day.

I got most my water in, fell short 2days during the week and I cooked Spicy Mini Turkey Meatloaves, and a Parm Encrusted Chicken on a bed of Spring Mix and then last night I did Slower Cooker Chicken Salsa. I think I did a bar or shake 4 times out of the 7 days (that was the hardest to pull off!).

I did 10 miles on the incumbent bike, and I walked 60 minutes on Tuesday and then 45 minutes on Wednesday. SO I got SOME exercise in. I logged my food in on the days I exercised.

I did not lose weight but I did not gain weight!

This week I will again focus on the same steps. Water, healthy options available in my house (that I shopped for yesterday), replacement meals, more spark recipes and exercise when I can fit it in. This week I will add cutting back on wine... I LOVE my wine- but it does not serve ANY nutritional benefit and on occasion it can cause me to over eat like going for seconds when I am not hungry. That is my tweak for the week.

I can do this, it isn't rocket science- nor is it denying me a thing.

What will my roadblocks be this week? Stress, it is always there- work is busy crazy and I feel like I can not please everyone and I can't get to all those that I work with that may need my help. Besides the stress I always feel seems to be a staple in my life (all of our lives) I don't have any other specific worries or roadblocks. That is good!

So I will tackle week 2 with determination. I am shooting for some sense of control, like in Sparkpeople's plan- the first few weeks are about control. Weight loss will come once I am consistent with what I need to do to gain control so I can kick my efforts into high gear.

    Sounds like your off to a great start! Blessing! Keep up the great work and you will see results. Sometimes they come 1st in looser fitting clothing before the scale budges a lot, but you will begin to lose lbs too! Just know that you are worth it and worth feeling great about you! Blessings! - Kelly emoticon
