Tuesday, November 09, 2010

Well it is time to start weekly blogging again. This has always worked so well for me. I am not sure why I don't stick with it. I get the results that I want, usually getting myself down to my goal weight. I stop and gain the weight back emoticon

*Although I ate some "not so" healthy, I still managed to create a small 200 calorie deficit unless I didn't estimate correctly.

*This was a bonus that I added to my list. I was allowing myself soda pop for the day but I decided to stick with water. I am sure by next week I will be in major soda pop withdraw.

*Basically took today off. First cheat day since I posted blog. Even though I had allowed myself a cheat day on Saturday, I still created a deficit so I am taking today as my day. Only thing I wish I would have done was track my food. I know I should be tracking religiously. I ate so many snacks that I don't think I could accurately recreate the day now.

Overall I am happy with my week. On to week #2 with new goals and new plan!

I will update daily. Please feel free to leave me a comment of disapproval on my sparkpage if I did not follow through for the day emoticon
