Week 3 5% Winter to Spring Challenge Goals Check-up Slipping a little

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Here's week 3 - had some slip ups and unfortunately week 4 isn't off to the best start. I've been struggling with the idea of losing weight too quickly. It has taken so long to lose the first 50 that I'm nervous about the faster weightloss in this challenge. OR that's just an excuse for self sabotage. My slip ups didn't mess up the weight loss but I think they did set me up for more of the same at the beginning of week 4. I really think most of it has to do with my failure in the devotions department.

Exercise: at least 120 min 3x a week , 60 min 2x a week 30 min 2x a week
Focus on 2x a week strength training
Diet: Log and stay within range on Spark
Team: Check in daily and weigh in weekly, comment on a blog or post at least 3x a week.
Devotions 7x a week
One on one activity with one of my kids each day.

So here we go:
Exercise: exceeded goals. All days over 60, strength 2x
Diet: 5/7 days logged and staying in range
Team: all goals met.
Devotions: 3/7 days :(
Activity w/kids: 5/7 days

Thanks to all of you who help me stay accountable. emoticon

    Don't give up! One of my favorite sayings is to not lose the good in the search for perfect. None of us is perfect and success is all about gains. It sounds like you are on the right track, so emoticon and you'll get there! With all the support of our emoticon team-mates, emoticon

    Hey, Heather - you're doing well!

I really struggle to stay within my calorie range each day.

See if you can re-organise your first-thing-in-the-morning routine to give you three minutes of time with God before you do anything else. Three minutes - or even one! -may not be much, but it's better than nothing and might inspire you to find other little slots during the day whilst waiting for a page to load, the traffic lights to change etc.

God bless
