Weeks 24 and 25 in Review Jun 10-23

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

I guess I can sum up the past two weeks with the good, the bad, and the just plain ugly!

Good: Lots of Cardio emoticon week 24 I burned 3113, and week 25 I burned 3233 between walking and Curves; finished the 28 Day Spring into Summer Bootcamp emoticon emoticon This one I am really proud of. The videos kicked my behind, but I did them anyway and finished one day early emoticon Now to carry forward the ST and toning from here on out. Protein intake *drum roll please* I managed to meet my protein needs every single day the past two weeks!!! This has been a struggle since the beginning of the year, 25 weeks to get it right! emoticon Week 24 my daily protein ranged from 65 my lowest day to 79 the highest. Week 25 I squeaked by with a 60 low to a 90 high! Not only did I meet protein, but I managed to stay in calorie range every one of those days too! I will leave protein on my goals one more week, just to make sure the past two were not a fluke. I also made my fiber goals week 24, and missed just two days this past week.

The bad: Sticking to my menus. Really hap-hazard the past two weeks. I did really well for a couple of days, then totally off track. I still ate (mostly) healthy just not what I had bought and planned. I have to get better at this as too much produce is going into the trash.

The ugly: Sleeping 7 hours per night. I can't even believe I am going to admit too this, but Week 24 I only got 7 hours sleep one night. The other 6 weren't even close. Week 25 was slightly better at 4/7. Obviously this stays on the goals going forward. Weight loss was also ugly. I actually lost 3 pounds in the first 10 days, and then all of it was back on for Saturday's weigh-in for the 5% challenge. really not sure what happened, either ate something I am allergic too or muscle from the bootcamp, but the scale doesn't lie :-(

My goals for last week(s) were:
1) 60 grams of protein daily
2) Eating planned meals
3) Sleeping at least 7 hours per night
4) Finishing Spring into Summer Bootcamp
5) Weight loss

1) Protein emoticon
2) Planned meals not even close
3) Sleep 5 out of 14 is really awful
4) Bootcamp emoticon
5) Weight loss still a rollercoaster

Focus for this week:
1) Protein intake /fiber intake/calorie range
2) Eating planned meals
3) Sleeping 7 hours per night
4) Weight loss

Wishing you all a week filled with small victories!

    Just keep striving and you will be better off in the long run. I too struggle with the sleeping. I rarely sleep more than 7 hours and most of the time it is 5 or 6..So can join you there. I do ok on the protein but I struggle with the fiber...I eat lots of fruit but still don't seem to get that number right. We will just try our best!!! Together!!! emoticon (wishng for rain)

    You are doing emoticon Margie, keep it up. The sleep goal is one of the most important! Without that sleep it impossible to lose (or I have noted that it is for me)! That is a very worthy goal. The fiber intake is another one that I have trouble with. Meal planning and sticking with it is also very hard. There always seems to be something standing in the way or coming up in my house hold. You have set goals that are gems! I look forward to tuning in to next week. You always inspire me to do better. Some of these goals I think I will put on my agenda this week. I know sleep is most certainly one of them. I never, never lose even a pound if that one is not right!

    Hope you have a great week, because emoticon

    I love hearing the workouts you do! It inspires me.. And i can give full sympathy on eating what you buy, for some awful horrible reason, I put alot of stuff in the trash b/c i couldnt get to it in time, like my fruits and veggies. but i realized something that might help. But in smaller quantities. We are used to buying , almost in bulk on all of the unhealhty food we can get b/c our households can go go through it quicker, and b/c there are better bulk deals on those items. So what I like to do is buy one fruit and one veg on monday, and if I plow through Ill go back to the store just for my self like Wedneday or Thursday. It will help with the waste and it will help you stick to the planned meals... Keep up the good work!! and wish me luck you have inspired me to run today!!!
