WIN Reflection

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

I was up a lb this week. No surprise because I haven't been great with the self-discipline over the 100 cal snacks. I hardly followed week 3 of Shred this week. That was my 3rd or 4th attempt between the 2 cycles I have done and I am moving on. I have also decided I will not incorporate week 3 in future cycles. I get way too many headaches, the shakes and low energy from the hypoglycemia. My goal is to follow week 4 of Shred as accurately as I can and to practice self-discipline with the snacking!

My goal last week for my fitness minutes was 180, I actually got 375. I haven't been doing as my ST as I would like so I really have to focus in on that. My goal this week is 250 minutes. My goal is for a minimum 30 min of cardio and at least a 15 minute ST session 6 days this week.

My last goal for this is to finally begin looking at my GMAT materials. I need to sit down and get all my dates together, get myself organized by making my to-do and shopping lists for start of school. Need to figure out all the costs of books, testing and applying for grad school organized. I know I have a month before school begins but that's really not that far away! I feel so unprepared and unorganized and I LOATHE that feeling!

That's about it, I am feeling crappy today. Allergies have been bad this year. My head, sinuses, ears all hurt :( I tell ya, its always something.

Excited about dinner though, nice chicken breasts stuffed with broccoli and low-fat cheese, scalloped potatoes and green beans. I am so hungry.

    LOL Jennifer you know what popped into my head when I read this? The song lyric:

Nan said it perfectly - you know what the issue is and are taking steps to correct it. I find that when I'm exhausted I tend to reach for food - the only way to limit the damage is to only have healthy food in the house. There are lots WORSE things you could be reaching for than the 100 calorie kind!! Hugs!! emoticon

    Supper sounds yummy! Do you deliver?

I get into trouble with those 100 calorie packs too. They're just so tiny and cute and ooooonly 100 calories.

Sounds like you'll need the month to get your ducks in a row for school.

    Way to rock the fitness!!! I'm sure some planning for school will bring some piece of mind and allow you to enjoy the rest of your summer.

Great work!

    just keep going. I wondered about week 3 myself. It was tough. I have been doing extremely well. My dr was pleased with my progress and I was able to get off one of my meds for diabetes. No more lows thanks be to God!

    Nice dinner and hopefully a little time to relax back before you are back at it again tomorrow. Sounds like you kept the damage down to a minimum. 1 pound, ok. You recognized what adjustments you need to make to be successful next week. Only thing I found about those 100 calorie pack snacks is that I there are not enough packages in a box to go on a full blown binge.

    Great job on the fitness minutes last week. You ROCK! Dinner sounds great too. Don't stress over last week. It is done. You probably know why you ate all those 100 cal goodies and are dealing with it. I no longer buy those packs because I tended to eat too many of them at one time... "only 100 calories, yeah I can do that".

Good luck with this week's goals.
