Day 397: Week 8 Progress Report

Thursday, June 26, 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!

emoticon Tracking emoticon

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

Perfect tracking: 4
Partial tracking: 2
No tracking: 1

Having spent the last few weeks hardly tracking at all, I'm happy with this! 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: 271 minutes
New exercises: my Wii game gave me some new exercises and yoga poses

The 12 week streak continues! emoticon

emoticon Yoga emoticon

My Goal: yoga 1-2 times/week

Days of yoga: 3
Time: 46 minutes

Exceeded my goal for the first time! 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: 119
Lower body reps: 64
Core reps: 15
Full body reps: 120
Time spent on ST: 31 minutes
Squat challenge: 15/30 days
Arm challenge: 8/30 days
Core challenge: 6/30 days

I feel pretty good about the amount of time I dedicated to ST this week. I am going to restart my core challenge too! emoticon

emoticon Weight Loss emoticon

My Goal: 20 pounds in 12 weeks

This week's result: -1.8 lbs
Cumulative result: +1.0 lbs

Edging ever so closer to my start weight, lol! Revised goal is to show a loss by the end of the BLC! emoticon

emoticon Weekly Reflection emoticon

I'm still struggling with food, but overall I've tried to be more mindful of my choices. I've been getting up in the morning to work out for 15 minutes, and that's been really helpful for my energy levels too. Twice I have overslept; I should try going to bed earlier.

My friend and I recently chatted about our food issues, and she really hit a chord with me: I am a volume eater. This isn't a problem if I'm eating carrots or something, but it IS a problem when I'm eating cookies! We brainstormed some ideas for healthy/healthier snacks that I can eat in bulk to satisfy that part of my eating habits. I'm looking forward to trying them next week!

    I like the way you have your planned your weekly goals. I'm trying to figure out my plan and focused more on tracking right now to get in the habit so this gives me some good ideas. I'm sure it was harder when you started so keep up the streak! emoticon
