Review of Weeks 1-2

Tuesday, July 05, 2011

So it's been almost two weeks since my last check-in. Overall, I have been trending towards a pretty steady exercise regime (though not as intense as I should be doing) and my calories are kept in check. I can crack down on both for sure, which is what I want to work on in the next week.

But first, a review of the goals I set two weeks ago

Goal #1: Eat Better
[ ] Try one new SP recipe. -- I have yet to do this!
[ ] Track every day this week starting Tues, 6/21. -- I definitely track more consistently and when I do track, I am staying within my calorie range! There definitely have been a few days where I went *way* over my 1,500 cal limit, but this hasn't seemed to effect things -- yet! emoticon

Goal #2: Build Muscle
[ ] Weight train at gym or home (using Shred DVD) on Wednesday and Friday. -- I haven't lifted weights at the gym yet but I have supplemented my work outs with the Shred DVD at least once.

Goal #3: Run
[ ] Run at the gym on Wednesday and Friday, easing back into the C25K program. -- I have yet to do this!
[ ] Research a 5K race to sign up for in about 6 weeks. Seriously folks! -- Or this!

Goal #4: Move
[ ] Zumba - Tues and Thurs; Vball - Tues night; Turbo Kick maybe one more time this week (either Wed or Thurs) -- I did this! I began Turbo Kick 3x a week in the mornings. What a workout! This I love! emoticon

Goal #5: Lose It
[ ] Next weigh in will be Fri, 6/24, before I head out to a what will most likely be a very indulgent weekend. I need to be on my guard! -- I weighed in and did fine this week! I lost about 4 pounds to kick off the intense summer here. I've been keeping up my weight loss too! emoticon
[ ] I need to take measurements and "before" photos this week as well. -- I need to do this to have an accurate count of things!

Overall Stats:
-Blasted about 4 pounds! (At 176.5# this morning, down from over 180# at the beginning of June 20) emoticon
-Seeing consistent results because of Turbo Kick, 3x/week emoticon
-Using calorie tracker to occasionally check in, staying within 1,500 {could do better on this!} emoticon

I'll post goals for this week next...
