October Retrospective and November Goals

Thursday, November 01, 2012

October's goals:

*Keep eating mindfully, and specifically focus on better weekend eating and less alcohol.
*I am aiming for 1,200 fitness minutes and 8,000 calories burned.
*Maintain in my range 135-140. I want to be in the lower end going into the upcoming holidays.
*Drink 8 cups of water every single day in October. I tend to slack on that some days.

How I did....

*Eating was okay, but not great. There is definitely room for improvement.
*I fell short on fitness minutes due to an injury. I pushed hard the last week of the month to get 1,020 minutes and 7,280 calories burned.
*My last official weigh-in for the month was 138.1.
*I did not hit the 8 cups goal.

It was not my best month, and I am totally re-focusing for November:

*Work harder on the mindful eating.
*Hit 1,100 fitness minutes and 8,000 calories burned.
*Maintain in my goal range of 135-140. I'd like to move towards the low end of the range.
*Water... I WILL drink 8 cups every day.

It's time to get my head back in the game to avoid holiday overindulgence.

    Fr the water thing....what helps me is to have a huge glass always filed up with water. When I walk past it I almost utomatically drink it. If its empty I don't so I always make sure it's full and available.

    Maintenance is a tricky thing when injuries prevent you from exercising as you'd like. I've managed it by adjusting the calorie range down for such times; but this is mostly a guess, trial, error, and correction process. I'm never sure how many calories of food are equivalent to my decreased/increased exercise; I have to watch the scale to see if I got it right.
