I have ~got~ to get back into the swing of things. It starts here, now.
Determined face is on.
Start Weight: 244.2 Weight loss goal for week: .5 - 1 lb. Daily calorie deficit goal: 500 - 750 Personal goals: Stick as close to the menu plan as possible, with only healthy substitutions if need-be. For me, losing is more about nutrition than fitness, although fitness is an important part of the whole balance game. If I can get my nutrition the rest will follow.
Monday, October 29 Calories in/out: 2226 in / 2790 out per SP (3036 out per BB) Deficit: - 564 Activity: 124 min Personal goals: Nope - hubby made 'healthier' whole wheat chocolate chip cookies. That's fine, having one would have been fine, having four was not so fine.
Comments: If at first you don't succeed, try try again!
Tuesday, October 30 Calories in/out: 1963 in / 2196 out (forgot to put the BB on in the morning, so this is strictly SP numbers from my reports) Deficit: 233 Activity: Zilch - oh I walked every hour but didn't do anything fitness-related at all. Personal goals: No. I'm getting better though. At least it was under 2000 this time, right? Comments: Grrrr.
Wednesday, October 31 Calories in/out: 1696 in / 2546 out (SP) - 2788 (BB) Deficit: 850 Activity: 87 min. Personal goals: Nutrition was better. We didn't stick to the menu plan for dinner, instead having a soup that Bill made in the crockpot, but it worked out alright. Comments: Better. I'll take it!
Thursday, November 1 Calories in/out: 1768 in / 2447 out (SP) - 2979 out (BB) Deficit: 679 Activity: 88 min. Personal goals: During the day I was able to stick to the menu. We opted to have dinner out, and went to the Mongolian grill as a 'healthier' alternative to a Chinese buffet. Better choice, Comments: I'm still experiencing cravings to eat. I'm not hungry, I just want to eat. Must get that under control, better. Progress.. yes please.
Friday, November 2 Calories in/out: 1706 in / 2191 out (SP) - 2678 (BB) Deficit: 485 Activity: 31 min. Personal goals: I did really, even though the numbers don't show it. Yesterday was my Friday off, so I was at home. I didn't stick to my menu plan, but I did make sensible choices and didn't try to eat everything in the house. I chose healthier options for snacking and felt good about it. Comments: TOM started this (Saturday morning). I'm expecting a gain when I weigh tomorrow morning, but did see 1 lb gone when I weighed Friday morning.
Saturday, November 3 Calories in/out: 1977 in / 2191 out (SP) - 2149 (BB) Deficit: 214 Activity: none Personal goals: This day was spent on the couch more or less, snuggled up with puppies. While I ate a lot, I didn't eat everything, which is an accomplishment during days like these. Comments: I made conscious decisions and they were ones that I could live with.
End Weight: 243.0 Weight loss goal met: Yes - down 1.3 Deficit goal met: Not always. Personal goals met: Not always - but I did much better with tracking and deciding what I was going to eat. I count that as a victory on the long road to total success.
Hopefully this week will be a little more sane for me so I can participate in the challenge, I've been working so much there that I haven't had time to do much beyond log my food!
Here is the template for this week's challenge; copy and paste it, then edit your entry throughout the week. If your device does not differentiate between 'moderate' and 'vigorous' activity, change it to reflect that. Adjust the template as needed to track what is most helpful to you!
