SUMMER ACCOUNTABILITY CHALLENGE WEEK 2: JULY 16-22

Monday, July 16, 2012

emoticonSUMMER ACCOUNTABILITY CHALLENGE WEEK 2: JULY 16-22

emoticonLast week I wanted to feel healthier, lighter and more energetic by the end of the week. Today I feel healthier and more energetic! Two out of three isn't bad!

emoticonI feel this way because I did a good job last week of staying mostly healthy without feeling deprived.

emoticonMy big nutrition goal for last week was tracking every day and no alcohol until the weekend. I did accomplish this goal because I was diligent in logging all my food for the week even the stuff I didn't want to, like that BBQ dinner and a Klondike bar. I didn't have any alcohol until the weekend, but I almost had a glass of wine on Thursday. I ended up breaking the glass and spilling it all over myself, so I actually didn't drink any... HA!

emoticonMy big fitness goal for last week was completing all my training runs. I met this goal this week because I ran three times (even if I didn't feel great during them) and had two strength training sessions and one combination workout. I had 400 fitness minutes last week and burned over 3500 calories.

emoticonMy big wellness goal for last week was getting 7 hours of sleep every night. I wasn't able to accomplish this because a couple nights this week I got to bed later than I intended and a couple of times I was awake in the middle of the night for an hour or more.

emoticonI found it not too bad to stick to the plan this week. I give myself an A- for the work I did this week.

emoticonI feel like I did do enough to get a reward this week because I was stressed out a lot of the week and I did manage to sleep better than usual even if I didn't meet this wellness goal. Plus, I feel like a pedicure will help me sleep better! ;)

emoticonI am going to keep the same goals this week because I want to continue to track until I'm totally gung ho about it again and I need that extra motivation to run three times a week and give myself the rest I need. Here's what I am going to do differently for nutrition, fitness and wellness... I am going to try to get to bed before 10pm and better plan out my meals for the week. I can tweak something to make it work better in my life, by cutting myself a little slack if I miss a run or don't feel good on a run and just getting it done the next day.

emoticonMy biggest challenge this week will be lack of sleep, stress and moving back and forth between home and the beach house.

emoticonI want to feel more like a real runner by the end of next week. My reward for good behavior this week will be buying some cherries at the market just for me!

emoticonI did not weigh in last week because I wasn't near a scale. I will weigh in this week.

emoticonI love myself enough to acknowledge my shortcomings without feeling embarrassed and never ever be afraid to praise myself for the wonderful things I do and qualities I have. I'm going to have a happy and healthy week!

    Yay! Great week! I love it when things like that broken wine glass happen - a gentle reminder from the Universe that you probably shouldn't have had it anyway!

I'm about to post my goals... here's to a great week!

    I love that you got so excited about your glass of wine that you busted it and spilled it on yourself. Haha. Totally sounds like me :)

BTW, curious minds are wondering, did you break the wine glass on purpose? emoticon

    Did an awesome job, you do deserve the reward!! It is hard to sleep all night when you aren't in control of your schedule. Keep trying and one of these days it'll happen and you'll be in the habit of going to bed at the right time to get enough sleep. Hope you have an awesome week (and get all the sleep you need)!

    Looks like you did great! We all need to love ourselves enough to acknowledge our shortcomings and celebrate our successes...a work in progress for me.

Have a wonderful week!
