Mid-Month Check-In

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

I made very reasonable goals for this month. Let's see how they're going so far:

1) Eat clean (whole foods, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, lean protein).

Right now, I have a three day streak going on clean eating. I feel so much better when I eat this way. But there is the siren song of temptation, especially on the weekends. I'm going to New York for the last weekend of the month. My goal is to still have my clean eating streak going when I depart for my trip.

2) Keep the streak alive.

I'm on day 172 of my nutrition tracking/wheel spinning/water drinking streak! I remember how psyched I was when I broke my previous record of 17 days! Now it's been 10 times as long! Gotta love streaking and the motivation is provides!

3) Lose 5 pounds.

So far, I've lost 2.2 pounds. I believe I can keep losing and meet my goal this month, especially if I stay on track with the clean eating.

So far, July's been pretty good! How's your month going?

    July is too hot for anything real good to happen! Good for you for being able to stick to your plans and hopefully you'll be able to splurge just a tiny bit when you're in NY.

    First, I have to say that you look amaziing in your little green dress. I love that dress. I want it!

I'm clean eating too. Been 4 weeks for me & I really do notice the difference in how I feel - mentally and physically.

    Congrats on your clean eating! I'm on Day 1. Oh well, gotta start somewhere, right?

I am awed by your 172 day streak for tracking!

You are inspiring me to keep my own clean eating streak going, since that's where my problem lies....

    Pretty good! I agree that clean eating is the way to go. Rather than worrying AS much about the calories, I find that eating whole fruits and vegetables has allowed me to easily stay within my calorie range while feeling way more satisfied than previously. There's so much more density and fiber for the calorie content than a lot of processed foods. I can either have 1 good-for-you-cookie or 3 clementines.
