Review of goals for the first week of September.

1. Blog once per week. My goal was to blog my progress once a week and this is my blog for the week, so that is a emoticon

2. Plan nutrition ahead, hopefully for the entire week, and include snacks/treats in the meal plan. This was emoticon NOT A emoticon I had hopes that this week would be better, but so far it has not been. For some reason I am struggling with this. I think it may have something to do with adjusting to a new schedule of not working combined with some unusual happenings like lunch out, etc.

3. Track food daily, before eating. I did a fairly good job of tracking food daily, but not before eating. Hopefully I will have better success this week if I succeed in planning one day at a time.

4. Exercise:

a. Strength - I did not achieve this goal at all during week 1, but I will be doing better this week.

b. Yoga - I only got it in once last week, but I did do a lot more stretching, esp. my hip and back. I will be achieving 2 times this week.

c. Cardio I only got in one Zumba class last week because of the holiday, but I did get in 5 days of 30 to 66 minutes of cardio and the other 2 days I got in at least 15 minutes. so I am taking this as a emoticon

d. Steps average 6,000 steps per day. I did not get an average of 6,000 steps per day, but I did get 5,285 average so not too bad.

5. Weight loss 4 pounds for the month. I lost a little over 1 pound so that is a emoticon if I can keep it up.

6. Work on getting into the daily meditation habit. I did meditation a couple of days, so I need to work on this more this week.

So, overall, I am pleased with

    You're doing a great job of examining your goals, what you've done and making any changes if necessary. Change isn't necessarily easy and I'm sure it's going to take some time getting use to this change. Don't be too hard on yourself if you don't meet a goal. Keep up the emoticon work! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Awesome progress Barbie, Way i plan ahead with the nutrition goal, is with spark meal plans and days i think of having something else i add them on those days and have the sheet copied and other times printed out. This could help you get started too. It will also improve your 4th goal of tracking before you eat.

    What a terrific job you are doing of examining your goals and making whatever adjustments are needed. These transition times in life are not easy (for any of us!!!) emoticon
So I'm wondering - how did you reward yourself for your progress from Week 1?
Here's a emoticon and a emoticon from me.
