How did I Do This Week?

Saturday, July 27, 2013

How did I do with my goals? Generally well, but NOT completely well!

Goal: attend the fitness center each weekday morning and do my best to do 7 classes. (Back-to-back classes on Monday and Friday.)

emoticon I did attend 5 days. On Monday I did back-to-back classes but on Friday I did not. I skipped the Zumba class because my knee has been giving me some twinges, and that side-to-side motion is not good for it. I walked on the treadmill for an hour instead, so consider this a "win."

Goal: do two more days of the "5K 101" program.

emoticon Yes, I finished Week 2 of the program. Tomorrow I will do Week 3, Day 1.

Goal: I will record EVERYTHING. (MAJOR fail here on days I overeat or PERCEIVE I overeat. And not recording seems to promote MORE overeating.)

emoticon I did OK until Friday! I got home WAAY past lunch time and WAS STARVED. That really sent me off the rails and into a binge. Did NOT record everything I ate, and don't want to. emoticon

GoalI will not drink any alcohol.

emoticon No alcohol this week. Actually, today is Day 14.

Goal: I will cogitate about my goals and what I need to do to achieve them. I will remember that eating is NOT an emergency, that my next planned meal is only a few short hours away and waiting will allow me to savor and enjoy it that much more!

emoticon emoticon Actually, I DID think about this many times during the week, and it did help prevent a lot of mindless noshing. However I cannot ignore last night's binge, so this was not exactly a success, but not a total fail, either.

Goal: get in 15,000 steps a day.

emoticon From Monday-Saturday (today) I've walked 113,361 steps, or an average of nearly 19,000 steps a day! Wow. Don't plan to keep up that pace forever though!!

So I've done pretty well, and hoping to show a good weight loss on Monday despite the rampage through the kitchen last night.

I've joined the 5% challenge, and always find them motivating -- I tend to work harder for a team than I will for myself.

Hope everyone has a great weekend! Here's your giggle for today:

    Wow, you are setting some very high goals for yourself. I'd give you thumbs up on all accounts.............even the binge. You are honest with yourself about going "off the rails". You don't keep secrets from yourself or all of us. That's always the solution. That makes it a win in my book.
Have a wonderful Sunday!

    I love how you set goals each week and how you track them. This takes lots of dedication and commitment. It looks you are using some of Beck' diet skills, which I love and I need to be reminded often. Reading how you apply these skills into daily life is very encouraging! Thank you! emoticon

    Wow, that's a lot of steps. You have a clear eyes view of where you are and what you plan to do.
As they say, "Progress not Perfection" That's all we really need
