Exercise is becoming much more consistent! I am in a routine and that helps to ensure I get in my required fitness minutes. I have been contemplating checking out a new gym. It isn't that I don't enjoy Curves anymore, I just feel like I am not progressing like I was. I miss swimming, but dislike the long drive into town to go to the city pool. Plus, that pool is outdoors and even though heated not much fun in the winter. There are two gyms in town with indoor pools, about half the drive distance as the city pool. I will make an appointment at those this coming week or the next to check them out. One has a Women's Only workout area, and that appeals to me.
Eating unfortunately has been all over the board this past week. I went over calories one day, missed protein nutrients two days, missed fiber four days. I planned out my meals, shopped accordingly, and then failed to follow my plan. No excuses, just didn't do it. I am gearing up for the 5% Summer Challenge, and am planning to switch to a Mediterranean style diet for that. I feel like I am in somewhat of a rut. I have pulled out the cookbooks, looked at some recipes, and made my grocery list. Now to follow it.
My goals for last week were:
1) 60 grams of protein daily
2) 7 hours of sleep nightly
3) Complete all 7 of the Spring into Shape Bootcamp videos per week
1) Protein 5/7 (both missed by just one gram - close but not there)
2) Sleep: 3/7
3) Bootcamp: 7/7 another week completed
Focus for this week:
eating planned meals, sleeping at least 7 hours per night, and finishing another week of bootcamp. With the new challenge starting, I am going to focus on weight loss this week too. I have been weighing every week, but have not been concerned with the number. Weight matters going forward.
Wishing everyone a week filled with small successful steps!
