week #1 Recap

Thursday, August 01, 2013

2lb Loss! emoticon
emoticon Things I did right:

*I tracked all week. I tracked pretty much everything I ate and its probably the first time ever that I track after every meal for more than a couple of days so this was huge for me. It also helped me keep my calories in check. I only went over one day.

*I restarted my chalean extreme workout program. All my calories burned also were added onto what I could consume for that day..this is good in a way because I can eat more ;) but not so good in that since I do not have a heart rate monitor im not sure if what the spark fitness calculator says I burned is what I really I still am cautious about how much more I eat.

*I kept my motivation high by looking at successful sparkers, motivating blogs and even going on instagram and following people who are 'getting it done'.

emoticon What I did wrong:

*I tended to stay at the higher end of my calorie allowance. While I know this must be ok I still feel like maybe I can lose more weight if I try to eat a bit better. Two days I ate back to back crap (really high calories) for lunch. I need to stop that!

*I started my fitness program late in the week and I missed yesterdays workout since I have been potty training this week and it just couldn't happen! I was also really tired. So unfortunately only worked out one day this week.

emoticon What I can do better for week 2:

*Keep tracking and not go over my calories not even one day! No garbage meals full of calories.

*Continue with my fitness plan and workout at least 3 times this week.

Still I lost 2 lbs. and that is a success for me. Before I deleted my previous blogs (I am restarting) I noticed that way back in 2009 when I started with spark people my first weigh in was 0 lbs. lost or gained. The following weigh in was 1lb loss. I was so disheartened. I don't know what I did wrong but obviously I was doing something wrong. this time I am understanding that eating right is key and that for me tracking my calories is necessary. Even when I thought I was 'eating right' weeks before, I was still going over my calories and maintaining my high weight.
I feel like I am off to a really good start and am really looking forward to next week's recap!

    That is awesome chica!!!! I am glad you gave yourself another try and you really put your ALL into it!!!! I promise, as long as you continue to workout out a few days a week and EAT CLEAN you WILL SEE RESULTS!!!! How I wished I had a better frame of mind when we first started! But we can't focus on the past, the past is what brought us to NOW and we have now a better understanding and determination!!! I think this time around it'll be different for you!!!
