Streaking - Update on Goals etc.

Friday, June 13, 2014

Today is Day 5 of my tracking everything and being in range.

I started the calorie tracking on Monday and have been doing emoticon
If anything I need to eat more. I am being so careful with calories/tracking that by the end of the day I have lot of calories left. A couple of the days I ate the same breakfast and lunch (boring I know) but they were both low cal so I had a lot of calories left over.
If you have any healthy snacks that you'd recommend, post them here. Tonight I had chickpea salad with sesame crackers and hard cheese to meet my calories (after dinner).

Today was the first day this week that I did any substantial exercising. I did something to my back and it started hurting last week so I've mostly been walking and Walk it Out-ing (wii). Today I did some low impact aerobics and a little kickboxing and weights. I used light weights so as not to strain my back. I did start PT on Tuesday. My back problems are mostly skeletal so once I get adjusted I usually feel better. Anyway.........

Work is not fun so I try to forget that I am there (in the office) when I have to go in. Mostly I stay at my desk, go to the gym, and then go home. Let's just say that the majority of the people in my group need to grow up and I just don't want to listen to their whining etc.

As far as my goals for June:

Strength Training: one session with trainer
two sessions at home
emoticon Not doing great with this one because of my back

Cardio: 30 minutes a day, get 10K steps at least.
emoticon Doing great with this. Have gotten more than 30 mins each day and over my steps every day.

Well-being: Spend 10 minutes a day (at least) doing something for me: reading, gardening, playing with the kitties.
emoticon I think I did enough gardening last Sunday to meet my goal for the month. Also enjoying time with the kitties. They are so much fun to watch and play with.
Even found a way to get in more steps while playing with them so that's a win-win.

That's it for me. Hope everyone has a nice weekend!

    Great job on the tracking! Snacking on nuts is good calories and protein. I love them. Hope your back is all better now.
    emoticon so much for helping me to get work in perspective. I am ready to roll off this assignment. I suppose I am quite lucky in a way to do so with my line of work (consulting). Sounds like you manage your situation perfectly by not getting dragged in.
    emoticon on the June goals!!

    I'm sorry to hear about your back. I hope the PT/adjustment gets it feeling much better soon.

    Do you want me to come pinch some of your co-workers....or just stick out my tongue at them?

    Hi Diane,

    Sorry to hear your back had been causing you trouble and I hope it is completely better soon.

    Way to go on getting back to nutrition tracking! Me too. I've got a couple really good days under my belt and working at pre-planning too.

    I don't think I have any different snack suggestions. Mine are pretty boring: on a popcorn and watermelon kick right now. I was low on calories today too so I opted for a glass of red wine. Does that count as a healthy snack? LOL
