Weigh In for 1.15.12

Alright so last week was wayyy better for me on the food front and water intake.  So-so on the exercise.  But overall, I can give myself a grade of a C.  Mainly because I could have put more effort into the exercise thing since I said I would do at least 30 minutes of walking, 3 times a week.  I definitely procrastinated... but I'm having some issues as before with getting going.  I really need to resolve this issue asap!

Weigh-In:  210.2

So that brings me down 1.4, not bad.  Basically what I was looking for this past week.  So lets see what goals were met and not met.

  • Stay under calorie goal every day - DONE (I did have one day I went over sodium big time)
  • Get at least 72 ounces of water in each day - DONE 
  • Do 30 minutes of walking, 3 times this week - FAIL
  • Lose at least 1.5 pounds - DONE (I just used the number off MyfitnessPal but since my scale is done on "even"s, I say I accomplished this one)
 So not bad... although I didn't walk "walk", I did get some major cleaning done around the house.  I feel good about this since it was much needed and I did work up some sweat.  One of my changes this year is helping out more around the house ---- I admit, since I work so much I've let the cleaning thing go and relied a lot on my husband.  So I'm putting forth the effort to pitch in more.  As for the walking, I know I procrastinated to the point that I didn't get it done.  I felt motivated somewhat to do it, then once home... and sitting down, its like my butt was clued to where I was at.  I just didn't want to go out in the cold, or go down to the apartments gym, or even where my work out clothes because my legs were hairy.  Yes... lots of nice excuses.  Amazing how we talk ourselves out of things we don't want to do.  LOL.  

In other news, I got my FitBug pedometer.  I can use this with that new wellness program at work and get points for doing 10,000 steps or more a day.  I figure, I can do some walking on my breaks... indoors.  Our building is huge.  I think this will push me... since I still want that damn Polar HRM.  In my mind --- I believe if I have this thing, it will drive me to want to work out more... since I'll see actual numbers that reflect what I'm doing.  Crazy thinking.... who knows.  Lol.  So I will be using it this week. 

Anywho... gotta get going and ready for work this week.  

Goals for this week ---- same as above and lose at least 1.0 lbs come weigh-in.

One of many valuable lessons I got from my brother...he told me to take the word FAIL out of my vocabulary. :)

I think you are doing great.
