End of the first week...
Saturday, August 08, 2009
This week, I focused on what it takes to meet the calorie/nutrition goals. This allowed me to do my shopping today with next week's meals in mind, especially the snacks which is where I need to focus on prep work for those. Mostly, over the last several months, I've started changing my eating habits, but with SP it's much more conscientious and the tracking really helps me understand what I'm eating, how much, and helps me see where I can flex. This is also helping me focus my cooking habits on more whole grain meals and giving me the incentive to really think about what I'm cooking and not just cooking because I need something to eat. I think my fridge is better prepped for week two.
With that, next week my focus will be on getting the daily exercise in, even if just a walk at lunch time every day. It's really hard for me to get away from the computer sometimes (not just working, but playing too!), so this weekend I will be working on putting up some visual motivators to get me away from my desk and out of the office (maybe I'll take a few pictures out of the new Spiegel catalog - if their wrap skirt and top doesn't motivate me to lose weight and look great, I don't know right now what will!). With my lunches and snacks thought out and prepped, I'll be able to focus on implementing morning and afternoon exercise opportunities.
Wish me well!!
