January Week 3, Getting There

Sunday, January 22, 2012

Week three wasn't a total failure for my goals!

I worked out three days either at the gym, in yoga class, or using the kinect, and walked to and from work three days (my walk is about .7 miles and usually takes me about 15 minutes). I feel good about my body and felt like I worked a lot of differing muscles. I added weight to my usual gym weight lifting cycle and really pumped it on the upper body.

I did eat out too often this week, however some of those options included a chicken salad sandwich on whole wheat, chili, and a really delicious Greek salad with beets, chicken, and oil and vinegar. Part of the problem with this past week is that I did absolutely no batch cooking on Sunday so I really had nothing to bring to work, and I ran out of eggs halfway through the week and ended up getting breakfast out too.

Today I worked to set myself up for success food wise this week by grocery shopping and batch cooking! Today I am making a raw kale & brussel sprout salad with a Dijon mustard vinaigrette, a skinny baked mac and cheese (uses broccoli and low fat cheese with whole wheat protein pasta), and an cous cous super salad with broccoli, asparagus, cilantro, garlic, almonds, cucumber, avocado, feta, and a lemon vinaigrette. Yum!

Already got off to a good start for the week by getting in 53 fitness minutes today and burning over 400 calories! I did a combination of running, gym games, cardio boxing, jump rope, and dance classes with the kinect. Time flew by and I had no idea I'd been at it that long!j

So far over the course of the month, I've gained two pounds, but I'm not letting that get me down. I know I'm taking it one day at a time and trying to make good decisions, so in time, things will come!

Here's to the last week of January being a success! Maybe I can get back to the weight where I started the month! emoticon

    Agreed Alex! We can only take it one day at a time and make the best choices we can. You have been through this before so you know that the scale will start to tip the other direction in time! Keep it up! :-)
