I'm pretty sure that rest days and snacks are not an appropriate way to "reward" yourself.

Tuesday, August 03, 2010

Yes. You are all smart. You knew this. Really... I did too. I wasn't really "rewarding", I more had the thought of "I'm kind of tired this weekend--I don't really feel like working out. And I've been working really hard--it won't be so bad."

Well, no, it's not THAT BAD. But it's not THAT GOOD either. I will really see it in the scale tomorrow morning too. It's no ones fault other than my own. I decided to eat a few too many calories, and not work out. Bryan did try (in his own special way) to get me to work out. I told him that he is allowed to get on my case if I have two rest days in a row (if I'm not sick that is). Well, he got on my case. I didn't like to hear it, but I needed to.

Monday was better, I got up off my butt and did a workout dvd. And of course today was Zumba.

Onto the good stuff!
This is my first time looking back at my goals that I put in place for July. Lets have an update, shall we??

July 3rd weight:278
August 3rd weight:270 8 lbs lost! woot! Weigh in day is tomorrow, so we will see what happens there.

Fitness minutes:
Actual:993!! Double what I expected. And that is even after not doing very well the first two weeks!

Goal: 6 out of 7 days
Actual: The first two weeks I didn't do so well, but the last two weeks I followed this about 99%

Goal: 3x's a week
Actual: nearly everyday except the last week

Goal: Track 6 out of 7 days, stay between 1500 and 1800 cal, 1 fast food a week
Actual: After the second week 7 day tracking, about half around 1800, but a good handful of days I ate more than that. Stuck to the "fast food" goal

Goal:7 glasses a day
Actual: After the second week, I think I only missed this one or two days

Not bad so far! I haven't been keeping up with my updating each day for the past week or so. That is going to be one of my August goals.

I'm pretty sure that I'm going to put those in a new blog. This one is getting rather large.

    You are doing really great girl! Don't worry too much about the minor set-backs because you always pick yourself up and work extra hard the next day. Good luck on your weigh in and keep it up. Let's rock it in August!!

    You did great in July! And I have my hubby in charge of workout reminders too. He is always very nice about it and knows when I'm actually sick/tired and when I'm just making excuses. Of course, on Sunday, I made him do my workout with me! Ha!
