Not only did I not lose the 3 pounds I gained last week, but I gained even more. I know it was deserved but it’s still annoying. I will admit that I did TERRIBLE on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday was expected because of a birthday party, but Sunday was just a slip. I didn’t feel well and I think I was comfort eating. SIGH. It just goes to show that you can’t outrun a bad diet!
WHAT I ATE:
My plan was to use my weekly points but not my activity points. That was a great plan in theory, but I stopped tracking Saturday night. I started over Sunday morning but only made it to lunch. When I am not tracking, it is bad news. I am confident I used all of weekly points plus my activity points plus even more.
HOW I WAS ACTIVE:
I didn’t stick to my activity plans 100%, but I did better than last week! I ran 2 times instead of 3 but that included 10 miles on Saturday and 3 miles on Monday. I did complete arm and ab exercises Wednesday as planned, but I did not use a DVD on Sunday. I felt awful on Sunday so I did nothing.
I earned 28 activity points this week, but 17 of those were from the 10 mile run on Saturday. I don’t mean to minimize the run, but I need to work on being consistent. It is healthier to earn fewer points more often than to have 1 huge day and do nothing the other days! I even had 2 days where I didn’t hit my baseline activity level. Ugh. I should have been paying attention to that!
GOALS FOR THIS WEEK:
- Lose something, lose anything.
It’s been a rough couple weeks. I’d like that to end now. I do have 2 splurges planned this week, but I KNOW that I can still lose weight even with splurges. I’ve done it many times, so I can do it again.
- Use my 49 weekly allowance points but not my activity points.
I haven’t achieved this goal the past two weeks, but I am determined this week. This goal is essential to meeting my first goal as well!
- Run 3 times and complete toning/strength exercises 2 times.
My evenings are kind of hectic the rest of this week, but I’m going to make it work. I will run 3 miles Thursday morning, 11 miles Saturday morning, and 3 miles Monday evening. I skipped Thursday morning last week, but I am NOT skipping this week! I will complete arm and ab exercises Friday night while watching TV, and I will complete the Jillian Michaels Kickbox FastFix DVD on Sunday.
What’s your goal this week? What can you do to accomplish that goal?
