It's only 8 days....

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

I had a really great week. I pretty much stuck to my plan everyday except yesterday. I just decided I needed a "cheat" day. I didn't take the one earlier in the week that I had allotted for myself so I don't feel too bad about it.

It's a new week and time for a new plan. I know with the Thanksgiving holiday quickly approaching that I will probably have some set backs. Therefore, I REALLY want to be disciplined for the next 8 days. Seriously it is only 8 days, I should be able to do that with no problem right?

Wed 11/17:
Run 8-10 mile with at least a few miles as a tempo or fartlek run~ NO.
*Did 30 minutes on ArcTrainer, 5 minutes on rowing machine and 25 minutes walking.
*Even though I didn't meet my exercise goal, I am very happy because I wasn't going to do any exercise at all.
8 glass of water~ YES
Take vitamins~ YES
Eat between 1400-1700 calories~ 1667
No soda pop~ YES
No fast food~ YES

Thurs 11/18:
Run or cross train equivalent of 6 miles~ NO
*Just really lacking motivation this week
Complete TNT challenge~ YES, cardio kickboxing video
Do 100 crunches and 45 modified pushups~ YES
*This was a bonus for me. Didn't not intend to do this 3 times this week but thought since I was having trouble finding the energy for cardio, it was the least I could do.
8 glasses of water~ YES
Take vitamins~ YES
Eat between 1400-1600 calories~ 1595

*Bad day. Not feeling well. Had dinner plans but some of what I had planned we were out of.. Then put too many crackers in my soup and I tried to eat it but it was disgusting and totally unsatisfying. I then proceeded to eat another meal. By then I was already spiraling out of control so I added in some cookies. My day up until dinner had been good but it was like when I couldn't follow my plan, I didn't know what to do.
No soda pop~ YES
No fast food~ YES
Get 7 hours of sleep~ YES

Sat 11/20:

8 glasses of water~ YES
Take vitamins~ YES
Eat between 1400-1500 calories~ 2235
*I was at 1594 but I was so hungry. Thought I made better choices but apparently not. One bad choice was having an alcoholic drink with my snack....wasted calories. Oh well. I still have about 600 calorie deficit for the week. Can't afford to sway off track any more this week until turkey day.

    8 days? Do you know I have trouble getting through one day of eating healthy? I think I need to completely detox or something because I had 720 calories just in cookies alone. Luckily even though I had a hankering for McD's I made past instead.
    You inspire me :)
