I've decide to do a "weekly progress report" to help myself stay on track, and to remind myself to do certain things.
For the next 3-4 months I want to stay on track to reach my goal weight (hopefully in time for my birthday).
Weekly Progress Report
May Week 2: May 7 - 14
Sunday weigh in: 1 kg down!
Total weight lost since 1 May: 2.7 kg
Past week’s exercise:
Uploaded Polar data (for Discovery points)? Yes
Cleared Polar data? Yes
Updated Polar weight? Yes
Virgin gym visits: 0 (need 4 before end of May otherwise membership will be terminated!!!!!) Make a point of going twice this week!
Run 5 K progress: 3 x 5 K runs - time improving, more jogging than walking
Other exercise: Not much – rather a sluggish week
Past week’s nutrition:
Nutrition: very good, really enjoyed my meals – for next week watch out that hot beverages are kept to a maximum of 4 a day (2 morning, 1 afternoon and 1 after supper)
Meals planned for new week:
Sunday: big tuna salad for me, risotto for family, butternut soup for supper
Monday: run day – fish and steamed veg
Tuesday: vegetable and bean soup with mini rosemary bread rolls
Wednesday: run day – public hol – pasta “veganaise” for lunch, omelettes for supper
Thursday: Veg curry on rice
Friday: long run day - pizza night? (half pizza for me and salad)
Saturday: stir fry with salmon
Pointers to success:
• Be committed to CONSISTENCY! A daily deficit is going to get you to goal.
• ACCURACY! It’s very important that tracking (of both food and exercise cals) is accurate (to get an accurate deficit)
• Focus on fruit and veg and never go hungry
• Eat a protein portion at every meal
• Don’t skip meals
Feel welcome to join us on our May Deficit Challenge which is really helpful in keeping me on track:
