I am shocked that I lost 3 pounds this week! I gained 4.4 last week, so I expected some kind of loss. However, I’m really not proud of my week. I had several days of overeating and not tracking and mindless snacking. I also had 4 pretty good days. I guess it’s easier to focus on the negative because I feel like I didn’t earn this 3 pounds, but I’ll take it!
I know I went over my weekly points, but I don’t know how much I was over because I didn’t track everything. SIGH. Back when I started losing in 2009, it would have been unheard of for me to eat without tracking or to go off course. I’d love to get that mentality back, but I also understand that I was very rigid in the beginning and that isn’t sustainable.
I think the only thing that saved me was my activity! I earned 19 AP last week and hit my baseline activity level every day. I didn’t hit my goal every day, but at least I hit my minimum baseline! I ran 3 miles on Thursday and a 5K (3.1 miles) on Memorial Day. It wasn’t as much activity as I had planned, but I’m trying to focus on the positives! My plan is to run Thursday, Saturday, and Monday for this week. Maybe I’ll even throw in a Kickboxing or 30 Day Shred workout on Sunday.
I’ve been thinking a lot about what I can do to improve my behavior this week. I definitely think I need to take the pressure off. The more I feel pressured, the worse I seem to do. I am not going to worry about being perfect. I’m just going to worry about staying within my points. I’ve had years of practice with that!
What’s your goal this week? What can you do to accomplish that goal?
