Week 8 review:
The fitness routine is going well. The classes during the week keep me focused as I am unlikely to miss them. On other days, I find ways to work out or take a walk. I did at least a 30 minute walk each of 6 days. On most days I did much more.

The nutrition routine is still my challenge. I am happy that I incorporated more fruits and vegetables plus healthy snacks. I ate too much on Wed, Friday, and Sunday. On Wed. it was mostly due to an after swim mini-binge. On Friday I let loose b/c the rest of the week seems a little too regimented. On Sunday I just found too many baked goods at my home, my mom's home, and my aunt's home. My weekly average was a tad too high. I need to watch these kind of situations next week.

The TV was on less than last week, so I'm happy with that.

Because it takes about a month to form new habits, I'm going to work on last week's goals some more.

Week's Goals:
emoticon Go to swim class M/W
--M done.
--W done and it is feeling more natural again.
emoticon Go to bootcamp class Tu/Th
--Tu done.
--Th done.
emoticon At least a 30 minute walk on two days between Friday-Sunday

I want to watch less TV:
emoticon On Monday & Thursday evening I will read, sing, dance, house-clean, respond to (e)mail...anything but turn on the TV.
--M shifted to Tu
--Tu was tough until my honey got home. I was lonely. I did some online training and reading and made it a productive evening. The only issue is I grazed a bit much. I was frustrated by being alone and I took it out in grazing. No TV, though.
--W the tv went out early because stuff wasn't clicking
--Th. It was fun to interact with my honey w/o the tv. He really likes it and I feeler better connected to each other.

I want to eat less baked goods:
emoticon Limit baked goods to at most one serving a day, at the end of the day, less than 200 C. on Five days of the week.
--M had chips as a treat, and post swim consumption was only tens of calories instead of hundreds over
--Tu in the hours b4 honey got home I grabbed some chips and brittle and other treats. My one treat turned into several.
--W Ate too much after swimming, but I was hungry and it was only one thing, not a bunch of grazing and no sweets.
--T I had girl scout cookies, and chocolate chip cookies and I brought take out home. It was a big mess
--F I went to the chili burger place that is next to the gas station and I got the combo

emoticon Pack two fruit/whole grain + fat/protein snack a day to keep the sweets out of my tummy at least 6 days of the week
--M healthy snacks
--Tu done.
--W if I bring the fruit, I eat it, and my lunch always has veg.
--Th Lots of fruit
--Fri Lots of fruit and salad for lunch

    I have to be careful with those baked goods and anything not whole food. I just want to overeat those items and struggle to keep it under control. So much work to be done on the inside (and outside too) for me. I'm trying to have more fun in life and relax but still make progress in this lifelong weight loss & someday maintenance journey. Your workouts look challenging and fun! emoticon emoticon emoticon
