Weekly Update #7 - Not a Good Week

Monday, July 22, 2013

I did not do my weekly weigh in and measurements today. I had a rough week last week when I became sick late Thursday and continued to not feel well through Sunday. I tried to exercise on Friday and that was a bad mistake. Listening to your body is something we all should do and I failed to do that on Friday.

I continue to be very proud of my water intake. This is the longest streak I have ever had for drinking eight glasses of water in each day. I also have been sleeping very well, so those are two plus signs.

Since I did not do my weigh in and measurements, I am posting the same ones from last week. I did update my water consumption and exercise to reflect the eight weeks that I have been back on my program.

Pounds lost: 6 (through week 7)
Inches lost from waist: 1.25 (through week 7)
Inches lost from hips: 2.5 (through week 7)
Consecutive days drinking 8 glasses of water: 49
Consecutive weeks exercising 150 minutes/week: 8

This week will present an additional challenge as we will be hosting out of town company. Whatever happens, I will continue to stay with my program as much as possible during the time we have visitors and will resume back full time after they leave.

    Hi!! So sorry to hear you were sick. Hope you are feeling better. You have still made lots of progress. It is okay to not exercise one day. Sometimes I do that as my body tells me I need to rest my body. Today, in fact. I had so many personal things going on emoticon that I was worn out. But I didn't. I think your water consumption is and your amount of sleep is just as important. So I think you are doing great! Keep up that good work!! emoticon

    Hi Nancy. I hope you are feeling better. Yes, it is very important to listen to your body and don't stress when you stray from your path. Look at the positives and that is your continued water intake - I wish I could find that kind of commitment!! That is the goal I have set for myself this week. I need to drink more water! Do you set a time schedule so you get them in? I was thinking that maybe that is what I need to do, just to bring it into my focus.

    Regarding your company - just realize that this week you will probably will indulge more than usual. That is okay - as you should enjoy this time with your friends. You are quite disciplined so you will most likely make good choices. And for the not so good choices - just think about smaller portions.

    Have a wonderful week!
