Week 1 Goals - Feb 4 - Feb 10

Sunday, February 03, 2013

I am finally here. We returned from Ottawa on Tuesday night. I have been battling a cold I picked up and have been trying to deal with some strained muscles in my neck, shoulders and back. These strains are a result of Sleeping on a rock hard bed for a week, sitting on a train for 6 hours twice in a week, carrying luggage and random bags up 3 fights of stairs at stupid Toronto train station, lifting and carrying 2- 24 and 27 lb babies around for a week,and the almighty tension and stress factor.

I will see the doctor on Friday if all issues are not righted by then.

I managed to lose 1 pound while I was away. Possibly activity as I was chief cook and bottle washer as well as daycare granny all week. SInce returning home, and being in so much pain, I imagine I have gained it back plus some as I have been into the cookies and comfort food since Wednesday.Today it all comes to an end. Today I pick up where I left off and buckle down to making MYSELF the priority here.

Did I mention that the day we arrived in Ottawa it was -40 degrees and only got up as high as -27 one day? Who lives there?

Goals for the coming week are as follows:

Walk 10-15 minutes- 5 days of 7

weight loss goal - 1-2 lbs

stay in calorie range every day

eat 5 freggies every day

track food and fitness every day

drink at least 3 litres of water every day

These should keep me going. I am planning to have some of these goals turn into a streak so they will appear every week now. I have not ever managed a commendable streak and am focused on working on these goals to begin this.

Have a great week everyone and keep flinging those pounds by the wayside. Who knows, some skinny person might need them and pick them up where you leave them. LOL

    Hey Gini!!!!! so you've come back out with the ground hogs. Welcome back, it's great to "see" you here and having your goals all set up and ready to start the week out right!
I am glad you're feeling better, coming home from a trip sick is the pits. There is always so much that needs to be done and being sick is just unfair.
I hope you had a wonderful time and it wasn't just work the whole week.

Keep pushing you can do it. You are are the great and powerful Ginilee!!!! :)
Go Woman!

    LOL as to who lives there!!!! Politicans that can afford to heat their houses in that temp. Here in NS it is as cold but we have the highest cost of gas and oil. BRRRR we are in a snow storm right now.
Have a great Sunday and hope the pain goes.

    Now that you are back home, I hope the weather is
warmer and the stress is gone. You had quite a
week and now it is time to focus on you again.
Hope your cold is just a distant memory soon.
