Taking a weekend off and Review of July 8-14

Sunday, July 15, 2012

I have had a lovely weekend spent with my family celebrating DH's birthday and attending a bridal shower for one of my nieces. My calories exceeded my range both days but not by too much. I enjoyed all the food I ate and would do it again. Tomorrow starts a new week and I will get back to normal. Right now I will do some sparking. I have been really busy and have not spent as much time on SP as I normally would. I have been out of touch with most of my SP friends and rather than try to catch up will start over starting now. If I have missed anything wonderful, I am sorry I was not there to cheer you on. If I have missed something not wonderful, please forgive me and hopefully I will be there for you next time.
I did lose 1 pound this week and have done well with my exercise. I should be on track to meet my exercise minutes this month. I need to get back to preplanning my weekly menu's. I have gotten away from that recently. It is a good habit and I should do it again. So how did I do with this weeks goals? Thankfully I had not set ambitious goals for this week.

1 ST on MWF emoticon

2 30 minutes on the bike and 20 minutes on the elliptical on MWF emoticon

3. Walk or Walk/Jog 5 K on Th/Sat. Already did it on Sun/Tue.

Saturday Morning was rainy so I did not walk, then I got busy and did not do any exercise other than some Triceps ST and 2 reverse planks. So goal was not met.

4. DD gets a week off from cooking lessons since she is spending the week as a Junior counselor with a cooking camp.

I will do better next week.

    Glad you had fun and that you lost a pound as well!!!! You are so steady and so good at the middle road - allowing treats at times.. I am only just now beginning to trust myself at moderation. You are such a good model to follow!!

    Glad to hear you had such a nice weekend. I'm sure you'll meet your goals next week. We do get to over-indulgage from time to time because we know enough to get it together again right afterwards. emoticon on that pound lost this week!!!

    I think your week-end is an example of what's right about SP... it isn't an all or nothing program. It recognizes that there will be special occasions when you will go over on your calories, but that's okay... that's real life.

I'm glad you had such a nice week-end, and I have no doubts at all that you will be right back on track tomorrow. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Glad to hear you had a very enjoyable weekend. We are all entitled to one now and then. And with all the hard work you have done lately, you are entitled more than most. Good for you!
