Day 389: Week 7 Progress Report

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

In accordance with my Day 350 blog with my BLC25 goals, I'm posting my weekly report of how well I'm doing reaching my goals!

My Goal: 5 days/week of perfect tracking, 2 days/week of partial tracking

Perfect tracking: 0
Partial tracking: 1
No tracking: 6

If perfect and no were reversed, I would've done awesome this week! But no. No, I did not do anything awesome this week. emoticon

emoticon Exercise emoticon

My Goal: keep up the 12 week streak (5 days/week, 20 min/day); try something new

Days exercised: 7
Days over 20 minutes: 5
Total time: 146 minutes
New exercises: nothing this week

The 12 week streak continues! (Week 6 kept me on the streak too!) emoticon

emoticon Yoga emoticon

My Goal: yoga 1-2 times/week

Days of yoga: 2
Time: 30 minutes

Whoo hoo! emoticon

emoticon Strength Training emoticon

My Goal: "more of this" (haha, should've made it a SMART goal!); complete 30 day squat challenge

Upper body reps: 60
Lower body reps: 35
Core reps: 30
Full body reps: 110
Time spent on ST: 20 minutes
Squat challenge: 15/30 days
Arm challenge: 8/30 days
Core challenge: 6/30 days

I'm pretty excited about the full body reps that I did this week, but overall it's not enough ST for what I was doing before. I did get some ST in on Tuesday because it was incorporated with a workout video I did, but I didn't count that here. I am officially abandoning the 30 day challenges, but I'm hoping to restart arms and/or core soon. emoticon

emoticon Weight Loss emoticon

My Goal: 20 pounds in 12 weeks

This week's result: +1.6 lbs (from 2 weeks ago)
Cumulative result: +2.8 lbs

Still going in the wrong direction and it's pretty clear why. emoticon

emoticon Weekly Reflection emoticon

Yes, I skipped week 6's report. No, it wasn't any better. I'm sliding down a slope, and I'm having trouble finding a foothold so I can climb back up.

The numbers are poor for reasons that make sense. I'm not tracking, my physical activity level has dropped, and I'm being generally lazy. There are no good reasons for any of this. I did it, and I need to fix it. I am committing to perfect tracking most days this week (most days = 4 days or more). Maybe if I see the stuff I'm putting in my mouth, I'll think harder before I put it there next time. I have also, for the past two days, gotten up a little early and worked out for 15 minutes. This is something I've wanted to do, and I'm glad I've started!

    Getting up early to work out is a very good step in the right direction. :)
