Today was my official weigh-in day. I'm down 2.6 lbs from last Wednesday (1.4 lbs from the last time I snuck a look at the scale). That's a total of 6.6 lbs in my first 2 weeks on Sparkpeople!!
While I know that the scale is a small measure of health and success, it's still nice to see those numbers getting smaller.
Drink more water
Drink less soda
This one is going really well. I'm getting 80oz of water or more each day and I've only had soda once this week (when I went out to dinner Saturday night) I'm going to try and skip soda entirely this weekend and see how that goes.
Eat more fruits and vegetables
Eat fewer convenience foods/eat out less
The fruits and veggies are no problem- I'm getting at least 5 servings a day. I've only bought one convenience food this week (an impulse buy when I was stocking up on groceries Sunday). I brought foods with me when we went out of town, so instead of 4 meals out there were only 2 (and I tracked both!)
Exercise more consistently
Spend less time watching TV
This is not going as well as the others. I skipped my workout yesterday and I really didn't have a good reason to. But the TV time has definitely decreased!
I'm still struggling to get up and workout early in the morning. I definitely need to look at my time management and plans
I've been planning meals and focusing on clean eating again which makes me feel pretty great!
My classes resumed Monday, so my sleep habits took a hit. Again, I need to rework my schedule!
The kids have changed schools and my anxiety levels are high. Their first day went ok, and my daughters teacher has agreed to to quick conference tomorrow morning so I am cautiously optimistic
