1.Track my food every single day. CHECK. 6/7
2.Stay in range 7 days a week. This was a tough one today, I was at the top of my range after supper, and I got pretty hungry in the evening. Best thing for me to do was go to bed early, which I did and went to sleep no problem. CHECK
3.Walk for a minimum of 20 minutes daily. Walked for 33 minutes outside. I really struggled to talk myself into walking today. My sleep patterns are something I am working on right now, and I shifted my wake up time half an hour earlier so I could shower before the rest of the family rises. It really hit me today with feeling tired all day long. Once I got out there and started moving though, I could really feel how much strength I have gained. It was a good feeling. CHECK. 6/7
Total points for the week 17/21.
Weigh in 223.4, down 3.4 pounds from last week.
It was a really great week for me. The Blue Jays Home Opener was a fabulous day with some tough choices nutrition wise. I took a rest day from walking and tracking on Sunday. Worked very hard to get my sleep turned around and really succeeded. Most of all, I didn't let bad choices derail my intentions. When things didn't go exactly right, I just reminded myself that I am learning a new lifestyle and that I have the rest of my life to get it right, it doesn't have to all happen in one day. Totally thrilled about my weigh in this week, I finally can post a loss for my 8 week 5% challenge. This is the week 6 weigh in, and my goal for the challenge was originally to weigh 213.8 at the end of the 8 weeks. 4 weeks in when I had gained instead of losing, I set a new goal of 2.5% of that current weight which would have me at 217.6 at the end of the 8 weeks. In order to reach that goal, I needed to weigh 223.2 today, and I only missed by .2 of a pound! My resolve to stay strong and work really hard to reach my new goal has been strengthened! I believe that I can make good choices all week!
