Summary for the week ending 1/16/11

Monday, January 17, 2011

I did pretty good this week but I am still sad to report I am up 0.2 pounds. I know it's almost nothing but it's the opposite of what I am going for! I decided to track a lot of other factors, too, so took all my measurements this morning. body fat and waist size are the most alarming but these are the things I need to work on now!

As far as my new reward program, which I think of as an allowance more myself as an adult:

1. Flylady 50% - DONE

2. 5 days strength - DONE

3. 300 fitness minutes - only got 270 - I could have pushed to get this one complete but I am using the Sunday through Saturday week to track this goal as used on Spark but for the rest of my goals I am using a Monday through Sunday week. So when I saw I was so close to 300 minutes on Saturday i was ecstatic because I thought I would make my goal on Sunday, forgetting the difference in the weeks. Hopefully this is the ;ast time I forget about that!

4. Write 1 hour - DONE

5. Lose 1 pound per week - gained 0.2

6. Meditate 5 days - 3 days

7. Average 1464 calories - DONE

8. BONUS - try recipes from new cookbook - DONE using the book "You - The Owner's Manual"

So I earned $25 this week, and had $6 leftover from last week. My reward wasn't very exciting though! I ordered a lace up ankle brace for $21 and a front license plate holder (CA requires a front plate though MI did not) for $10. Still, these are things I need and since I didn't feel the greatest about how this week worked out I thought I would order necessities instead of treats for my reward. Besides, my budget this month is a little tight and I needed to get these things anyway. I am sure I will be very happy when they arrive, regardless!

    Enjoy your rewards. Weight isn't the only measurement and it tends to have lots of variables weighed in that aren't necessarily fat! Go for the goals!
