I reached a Goal and other Updates from July 15th. to July 21th.

Sunday, July 22, 2012

The goal that I set of drinking 100 cups of water for this month has been met. As of today I have drank 100 cups of water for the month of July I am so proud of myself! I also did very well with my exercise minutes! I went from averaging 39 minutes of exercise last week to averaging 41 minutes this week! My down fall this week was my calories. My basic calorie range is 1200-1400 per day last weeks average was 1394 and this weeks average is 1515. I think a lot of why I went over my average range was because yesterday I over indulged in things like onion rings, chicken wings and ice cream. I don't usually over indulge like that but yesterday I just wanted to eat a little naughty so I did. I followed that up with a 45 minute workout and that seemed to make me feel a little bit better about the poor food choices that I had made.

The improvements that I would like to make for the week of the 22nd. through the 28st. is as follows.

I need to incorporate more fruits and veggies and whole grains in to my meal plans. My plan of action is to eat a little of these very day this week.

Wishing you all a happy, healthy and successful week!

    It sounds like your doing a great job Carrie.
    A few weeks ago I added some frozen vegetables to my omelet in the morning and found it to be very good and a pretty large portion all under 200 calories.
    I semi thawed some mixed vegetables out and then tossed them in the fry pan with my onions. Added two eggs and tada...Now I've been eating that a few times a week.
    It's helping me get more veggies in my diet.
    I also line my plate with spinach leaves then put my poached eggs on that. I am addicted to that one.
    Please share with me your favorites.
    thanks and good luck
