Week Two in Review

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

emoticon Weigh In:
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.

January Goals:

emoticon Drink more water
emoticon 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.

emoticon Eat more fruits and vegetables
emoticon 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!)

emoticon Exercise more consistently
emoticon 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!

emoticonI'm still struggling to get up and workout early in the morning. I definitely need to look at my time management and plans
emoticonI've been planning meals and focusing on clean eating again which makes me feel pretty great!
emoticonMy classes resumed Monday, so my sleep habits took a hit. Again, I need to rework my schedule!
emoticonThe 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

  All and all it sounds like you are on the right track! emoticon

Your weight it dropping off much faster than mine is; mine is like a on a slow (very slow) trickle! You are on the right track with food, water and such - you only need to make a few changes (which all seem to be in your schedule) to have a perfect week!

I think you are doing amazing for your second week!!! emoticon
