SUMMER ACCOUNTABILITY CHALLENGE WEEK 2: JULY 23-29

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

emoticonSUMMER ACCOUNTABILITY CHALLENGE WEEK 2: JULY 23-29

emoticonLast week I wanted to feel more like a real runner by the end of the week. Today I feel... tired, and definitely not like a real runner. I missed my long run and haven't run since Saturday.

emoticonI feel this way because I drank the world's largest margarita on Sunday afternoon and it knocked me on my ass, so I didn't run like I had planned. I've been catching up with work and chores and my body is weary from TOM.

emoticonMy big nutrition goal for last week was tracking my food everyday. I did not accomplish this goal because... I didn't track on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. I still want to give myself kudos for what I actually did accomplish... which is tracking Mon-Thurs and eating pretty well despite a couple of really bad meals.

My big fitness goal for last week was running three times last week. I did not meet this goal this week... because I only ran twice. But I did do... a 3-mile run, a 2.5 mile run and three very brisk walks and two strength training sessions.

emoticonMy big wellness goal for last week was going to bed before 10 and getting 7 hours of sleep. I was able to accomplish this because... I was super tired at the end of each day and did manage to get to bed before 10 every night.

emoticonI found it difficult to stick to the plan this week. I give myself a C+ for the work I did this week.

emoticonI feel like I did not do enough to get a reward this week because... I did not meet my nutrition and fitness goals and am already slacking on the next week's challenge.

emoticonI am not going to keep the same goals this week because... it's already Wednesday morning. Here's what I am going to do differently for nutrition, fitness and wellness... For nutrition I want to drink 10 glasses of water a day and make sure to go shopping for healthy foods this week; for fitness, I want to complete 2 runs and 2 strength training sessions; for wellness, I am keeping the same goal of bed before 10 and 7 hours of sleep a night. I can tweak something to make it work better in my life, by... not letting a bad day (or string of days!) trip me up.

emoticonMy biggest challenge this upcoming week will be my husband's long weekend off from work and my propensity to "celebrate" too much on the weekends.

emoticonI want to feel healthier and less tired by the end of next week. My reward for good behavior this week will be a nice solitary bubble bath.

emoticonI did weigh in this week. If I did, this is how I feel about the scale this week... It stayed the same, even after a really good week. I was kinda bummed but I knew I was PMSing.

emoticonI will not let a sub-par week throw me off track! I'm too good to let one bad day or week bring me down for longer than that. I'm a strong and beautiful person and no matter what my trackers say or my scale tells me, my worth cannot be measured.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This week's template will pretty much be the same!

If you miss a week, don't feel bad. Just jump right in as best as you can and let us know how you did last week (even if you didn't have specific goals).

I'm keeping it the same this week because I'm so busy! Stay strong!

    The fact that you still evaluated and went with some goals you could still accomplish in the time you had left speaks volumes!! I'd probably just chuck the entire two weeks in the trash bin-lol. Hope you get the bubble bath (sounds so nice....can't remember the last time I got to just soak in peace and quiet when it wasn't an ice bath-lol). I would give you better than a C+ too. :)

I know all to well about "celebrating" on the weekend...one of my stumbling blocks is WINE!!!!

    I'm right behind you - had PMS week last week, TOM this week. I hate how it can just wipe you out for no reason! Stay strong and maybe have a slightly smaller margarita next time :)

    Don't stress it - it isn't good for your weight either.

    I was at the bottom of the world's largest pint glass on Saturday afternoon. It deflintely threw me off! All you can do is dry yourself off and jump back into the real world, which is sounds like you are doing!

    I think you did great. Some weeks are naturally harder and are bodies are less cooperating. I admire you for doing this with a little one, I wish I wouldn't have let that excuse stop me when my boys were young.

Your attitude is great! You are worth making you a priority, yeah you!

    Tracking over the weekend IS so hard (especially cause that's also when I go off track celebrating a little too much emoticon )
