Reflections & Goals (Week 13): Oh POOPER!

Sunday, March 25, 2018

So yeah ... not the week I wanted to have. Yes, I lost weight:

Previous Weigh-in: 143 lbs
Current Weigh-in: 141 lbs
Difference: - 2 lbs

That's a good thing, right? "What's the problem?" you ask... Well, it just wasn't happening with most of my goals at all. And bottom line is that I'm *not* just trying to lose weight--I'm trying to get healthy with my lifestyle and attitude. And I think it's actually pretty UNHEALTHY to have a good weight loss week when I'm not meeting my healthy lifestyle goals.

So let's review my goals from last week:

1. Be more mindful of my snacking.
DID NOT HAPPEN--SEVERAL DAYS OF CRAP SNACKING.

2. Do better with my exercises/stretches for my knees, hips, and back.
DID NOT HAPPEN AT ALL.... I DON'T EVEN KNOW IF I DID 1 DAY :P

3. Do still better with drinking water.
DID AWFUL WITH THIS! I HONESTLY DON'T THINK I GOT A SINGLE DAY OF ENOUGH WATER.

4. Complete Week 10 of C210k. Do at least 3 days of strength training after an 18+ minute warm-up walk. Get at least 10k steps every day.
SUCCESS HERE!!! I DID MY RUNNING AND MY STRENGTH TRAINING. I DID A LOT BETTER WITH GETTING 10K EVEN IF I HAD TO DO RUNNING AROUND AT NIGHT. I ALSO FIXED MY NOTIFICATIONS SO I COULD GET 250 STEPS/HR (YEAH!)

5. Do 2 days of IF. Continue to not eat after 6:30.
I DID MY IF, BUT I WASN'T AS CAREFUL WITH MY 6:30 RULE.

6. Check in to Spark every day. Write 2 more posts this week.
DID NOT DO THIS AT ALL.

So out of 6 goals, I met 1 of them completely and 1 other partially. But those goals are still good ones .... I *want* to smash those goals. So I will continue to set those same goals until they are second nature. Yup, that's what I'll do. (Except I'm going to divide some of them into separate goals so I feel like I'm accomplishing more--is that cheating?)

1. Be more mindful of my snacking. Reach for water and then veggies.

2. Do my exercises/stretches for my knees, hips, and back.

3. Drink 64 oz of water EVERY day. Keep track.

4. Complete Week 11 of C210k. (That means I'll be doing a total of 152 minutes of running!)

5. Do at least 3 days of strength training after an 18+ minute warm-up walk.

6. Get at least 10k steps every day. Pay attention to my 250 steps/hr notifications.

7. Do 2 days of IF.

8. No eating after 6:30.

9. Check in to Spark every day.

10. Write 2 more blogposts this week.





Sending love to all y'all!

    Sorry that you had such a rough week. I know you'll dust yourself off and do better this week though. I've had a rough week going into two myself but like you I keep trying and that's what matters. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Love your determination! My life coach told me (right after I lost my job, house, and so forth) that setting a goal is one thing, breaking it down to bits and putting down HOW you are going to do those goals is what you really need to write down. You're inspiring me to revisit that and start planning HOW I'm going to do that and if it doesn't happen, why? How can I tweak this so that it is happening. My Mom has been talking to the family about the need not to sit for so long, and we all have fitbits and should all be notified about 250 steps of walking or exercise per hour. I'm going to plan on paying MORE attention to that. Thank you!

    Wow. That's a lot. Would you be willing to build your habits one habit at a time?

    You inspired me this week......yesterday was my "cheat" day but I decided to cut it off at 6:30--ended up eating much less than I usually do (of course I didn't know what to do with myself so I went to bed by 8:30).....I feel pretty good this morning though. Congrats on losing weight--even if you didn't meet all of your healthy goals it's still a nice little bonus.
