Week 1: The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Goals for the week: Didn't really define any, it was more of a generic goal to ease back into things.

The Good:

*Lost 3 Pounds. This doesn't really make any logic sense, most likely it was water weight and bulkage left from the Holidays...but anyway, Yay!

*Downloaded the Sparkpeople app (I talked myself into spending the $, a minor miracle) so that I can track on the go, and hopefully to encourage myself to track at all.

*Bought some fresh fruits and Veggies while grocery shopping (see Bad)

*Ate the least amount ever at the Breakfast Buffet (But still a lot of food, so see bad)

*Ate Veggies, once. (Iknow, Lame, but gotta start somewhere)

The Bad :

*Went to the Buffet, knowing that I would pig out, which I did, but considered it a minor victory that I ate less than I ever have before.

*No intentional exercise

*Didn't really track my food, and didn't really give too much thought to whether I was eating healthy or not, or to my portions.

The Ugly:

*Fast food twice, and the buffet. Most likely each MEAL was between 1500-2000 calories. This is a double fail, both in diet and budget. I also made cookies at ate 2/3 of them myself.

Goals for Week 2: Drink one bottle of water a day (up from my usual zero water consumption), Exercise 10 minutes 3 times, and try to eat one serving of fruit or veggies a day. Baby Steps!

    What is this "try" to eat one serving a day? Come on, jump in with both feet! You can do this. One serving a day. Be the little engine that could and eat those veggies. I think I can, I think I can, I know I can, I know I can...

    you can do this...... make small changes and slowly they will add up .... you didn;t get here overnight and you can't change overnight.... so keep on keeping on and the changes will add up and you will feel better !! You are on the right track and you are holding yourself accountable and the realization is Half the BATTLE !! YOU are so worth it !! Just remember that persistence and perserverance wins the battle NOT perfection !!
