Weigh-In -- 3Nov13

Sunday, November 03, 2013

Well this week was so-so. Didn't gain, didn't lose. Some days my eating was good, several days the Cheetos won... And the Kit Kats and the brownies, and the Hersheys.

I am still hanging in there with my exercise streak. Last night was 25 minutes of WATP for day 305.

I need to work at getting my steps up to at least 6000 a day. I have been doing that most days, but my days off work tend to be pretty low. As I write this about suppertime, I haven't reached 500 yet.

I am still getting in at least 8 cups of water a day, most days more.

I have been getting to bed earlier, getting to sleep is sometimes another matter, but I have been getting around 7 hours most nights. That's something I can build on.

I'm working on getting back to the old nutritional range. I need to start taking more soup type lunches as my home-made soups tend to be mostly veggies and fairly low calorie. I also need to do better with suppers. Even when I have them planned, I tend to just grab any old thing that looks good. Cheese and crackers, anyone??

I've been slacking on the food tracking lately. Some of that is laziness, some is the task of figuring out how much of what is in the meal I've fixed. I need to use my food scale more.

So -- goals for the next week

Better nutritional tracking

Staying within the calorie range

Drink my water

Continue at least 10 minutes of exercise a day.

Get to bed before 11 p.m.

That looks like enough to work on this week.

I've been toying with the idea of posting daily the progress I'm making on meeting my goals, but haven't made any decision yet. I think that maybe it would help me get and keep on track, but I really am not all that fond of blogging...

Have a good week, everyone!!

    Great goals. Sometimes it's worth a daily blog just to establish the habit. Also, you'd have people cheering you along!

    Think it is this weather that has us all up and down with the weight

    Cheese and crackers (and wine) is a favorite. But luckily not as common as it once was. Sounds like you did a good job maintaining despite the Halloween temptations.

    Your streak is a marvel! Have a terrific week!

    I seem to be in the same boat as you. LOL. Cheese and crackers? Yes, yes, yes. Unfortunately I love them. I'm actually sick of candy but I never get sick of cheese and crackers. I am working on doing better. This will be a busy week for me.
