Week 3

Sunday, March 20, 2011

This week has mentally been pretty awesome for me. I'm in just about the best place. I was sick this passed week for the first half and though I'm still a bit snorky I feel better, but then I got my period. So I've been placing high hopes on tomorrow (Monday) morning. I happened to find my pedometer this evening so I'm going to try to remember to wear it and make the most of my steps during the week days again. All in all I managed to get in one cardio this week and that's it for exercise. So not too stellar. Food-wise I has 3 days at about 2,000 cal, one of which was 2,200. I was on point for 2 days for calories, the other 2 days I was over by less than 100. So it wasn't terrible. Not like last Saturday where I had 3,000 calories. meep! So anyway, today I made cookies for a work thing tomorrow, it was fun and I'm glad I made them but I'm leaving almost all of them at work. I need to just not be around sweets to get them out of my system. I was like that quitting smoking too I remember. There was a point where I just knew I wasn't strong enough to throw my cigarettes out and have none. Then I was strong enough for that but not strong enough to not bum a smoke if someone near me was, so I had to avoid smokers which was another thing I had to work up to doing. Me and the baked goods are the same way, but with a far longer battle ;) So today I had more than half my calorie from cookies, and my belly hurts so yes I'm feeling guilt emotionally and physically lol I will deposit them and leave them out of my sight (and therefore for me out of my mind) tomorrow morning first thing my dears.

Let's see how I did this week on my goals...

1. Treadmill 3x/wk (MWF) 30+ min, 6+ mi./wk:
1/3 :(

2. 10,000 steps/day (M-F)

4. Yoga 3+ sets every day
0/7 :(

5. Track all calories every day

6. Days within calorie range:
2/7 :| last week was 3, so that's a bit of a backslide. However this week I had 2 good days and 2 days that were thisclose to being good. So I'm taking that as progress too. :)

7. General Cardio M-F

Goals for Week 3:
1. be within calorie range more than 3 days this week: no check
2. at least stick to doing yoga every day: no check

bummer... Okay. So. Goals for this week!

Goals for Week 4:
1. be within calorie range more than 4 days this week:
2. do at least one exercise activity Monday-Saturday:

Overall Progress Summary:
