M2W - Week 2 recap

Saturday, August 13, 2011

Another week gone.

Did eh, ok this week. Kept all days within calorie range (maybe missed one, I'd have to go back and look). Got enough water in me, except one day. Cardio was hit or miss...few days, but not as well as I could have done. Definatly not as good as last week.

Strengths. I did well keeping emotions in check this week. I have a lot going on, and didn't let it overwhelm me. I know this isn't really challenge related, but it's a good thing for me.

Weaknesses. Saying no. I had carrot cake on Wednesday as a mini birthday treat. I tracked it, and still stayed in calories, but it wasn't a "good" food. I chose it. I'm not gonna be sorry. lol Yesterday was ice cream. I had half what I normally would. Maybe this is progress. Today will be birthday chocolate cream pie. All in all, I'm still within my calories for these days, but I know it's not healthy calories. Next week will be better.

Hopes for next week? Be better about food choices. Be more consistent with effort towards working out. I'm happy ST will be a part of point earning. I'm actually looking forward to that. Start loosing weight. I know it sounds stupid, but I haven't lost weight..and while my bad food choices might be to blame, according to calorie-watching theories, they shouldn't be. Hrrmmph.

Idk. I think I'm lost, discouraged and just tired.

Week 3, here I come....please be nice to me :)

    Happy Birthday!! And it's all about moderation, right? Life is not worth living if you can never again have a reasonable serving of ice cream every once in a while!
    We all tell each other this, and all forget ourselves...but it's not supposed to be only about the scale! They are not the most accurate measure of success when you're talking about long term weight loss...scales are just the easiest tool to use! Look at the little muscle definition, looser clothing, increased endurance...these are all equal (if not better) measurements of your progress!!

    Happy birthday! Mine's Monday (ho hum). You're entitled to have a little birthday treat! Don't eat a pint of Ben and Jerry's- measure out a cup and eat and savor it slowly emoticon And yes, if you've felt overly emotional or on the edge, so to speak, keeping things in check IS an accomplishment. Take a bow!

    There are no bad foods, just less healthy choices. Remember that it's okay to indulge yourself once in a while. You're less likely to binge if you have a little bit and really enjoy it. Besides, carrot cake has carrots in it right? Carrots are healthy. Ice cream is made from milk, right? Milk is healthy. All in moderation. You can do it.
