This week was full of eye-openers for me! Here we go:
Gains/Losses from this week:I decided not to weigh myself each week. Instead, I'm going to do it every two weeks. That way there is less chance of me getting discouraged. It's always been really easy for me to get discouraged, so I want to lessen the chances!
Positives:Water....so not as tasty as Diet Dr. Pepper. But I did it! I made myself drink two bottles a day. It was really hard some days, but water is starting to grow on me.
I also started logging all my food in My Fitness Pal. Wow! What an eye-opener! I never knew how bad butter was! Haha! MFP really does help me keep track of my calories, while also letting me know the fat/carb/protein levels each day. I've done really good the majority of the week at staying under or at the calorie goal. Wednesday I had a meeting at a Mexican restaurant, so I didn't do so well that day! :)
But, overall, I feel a whole lot better just from one week!
Something to do better:
I need to stick to my exercise plan. Some days it is so hard to come home after working all day and want to work out. But I need to do better. This cold weather isn't helping either! My favorite workout is walking my dogs (I have two 80-lb dogs, so it is a super fast walk!) With 30 degree temps, we can't do that. But no excuses. I need to do better.
Goal for next week:
I'm going to up my water intake to 3 bottles each day. My recycling people are probably wondering what's going on! Haha! My students will definitely be getting more bathroom breaks as my water intake increases...they will love it!
Saying for the week:
Keep it up. That's what I tell myself every day. I'm super proud that I've been watching the calorie intake, and I'm even proud that I worked out the two days that I did. Keep it up! Keep going! Keep striving for better!
Have a great weekend and remember to stay focused! We've got this ladies!!!
