New week, new goals
Sunday, January 13, 2013
As of this morning my weight is still shifting. I know from past experience that this is how my body works. One day very soon it will just drop and I will be ecstatic!
But for right now all I can do is ignore it and soldier on.
Last night was our trip to the casino and accompanying buffet. I didn't track what i ate, there is just no way i could. I used the opportunity to try new foods. I just walked along the bar and took a spoonful of anything that looked interesting. I didn't finish most of it, just took a bite or two and then moved on. I discovered I like bok choy. I don't like fried clams. Black eyed peas are ok, but there are other legumes I like better. Sweet Potato pie taste just like pumpkin, and creme brulee is heaven in bowl.
I upped my daily exercise goal to 20 minutes a day. I have been doing that and more, and SparkPeople has been yelling at me to change my goals.
I also adjusted my weight loss goal a little further out. I don't like having weight loss goals because I really can't control how much weight I lose. I can control how much I eat and how much I exercise, but if/when I lose weight is really up to my body and a bit of luck. But SP requires you to have a goal so it knows where to put your calorie intake goals. I had wanted to be at my 1/2 mark (75 lbs) by the end of the year. I didn't quite make it, so I pushed it out to the end of this month. That was fine, but I think I work better with longer range goals. So, I am now working towards being under 200 lbs by my birthday on July 8th. That is 34 lbs in just under 6 months. Doable but I definitely need stay focused to get there.
I am still working on getting my 2 servings of fruits/veggies every day. I have done it every day so far, but it is still something I have to work at and doesn't come easy for me.
My water intake has gotten better. I'm still no where near the 4 cups a day I want to be at so I will continue to work at it.
Have an awesome week everyone.
