First Weigh-in for the Summer Challenge
Saturday, June 30, 2012
Oh, that nasty scale. I weighed in this morning and found that I weighed almost the same as I did a week ago. For a brief moment, I let disappoinment wash over me, an ocean of negativity waiting to drown me. BUT --
But I didn't let it get to me.
But I thought instead about the great habits I've set up during the first week of the challenge.
1. Tracking everything I ate.
2. Taking a walk every time my daughter has her one-hour art class.
3. Pushing myself to drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water a day.
4. Pushing to hit 1000 finess minutes, which I WILL accomplish after an evening walk tonight. (Hooray!)
So if I did all this, why didn't I lose any weight? Well...I ate. I ate a lot. I'm pretty sure I've had ice cream, chocolate, or potato chips every day this week. I went over my calorie limits often -- hey, but at least I tracked it!
This week, the Challenge goal is staying within calorie limits. The petulant child inside me is already squirming and devising ways to sneak in treats without tracking. But no, honesty is key. And I've got a team to support.
Goal for the Week: Track everything AND stay within calorie limits.
I'm on it!
