Just a quick update tonight so I can stay on track.
So on the weight front, I am back up 1.5 pounds this week after about a 2 pound loss last week. However, this past week was also TOM so I am not too upset about the bump up. Just determined to reverse it this week!
~Blog weekly ~
Whoops! This didn't happen last week. I had a blog about half typed up, but actually getting it finished and posted seemed to be a issue for me. *hangs head in shame* BUT this week is different! As you can now see because you are indeed, right now, reading a blog from me! Go me!
~Track food 90% of the time ~
I would say this is about 60% over the past two weeks. Going to work on this! Already have everything for today tracked.
~Focus on a healthy, high protein, high freggie diet ~
Overall diet hasn't been bad, but it hasn't been stellar either. I have been trying to add a little extended fasting to my schedule for the past few weeks and not eating anything (except my coffee) until about 11 am. For the most part, this has worked well. In fact, it has saved me a few days when my lunches ended up being high calorie. With no breakfast, the high calorie lunch didn't derail me and I was able to move on with my day with no eating stress! I am also planning to really focus on eating dinner earlier this week. I can't help but feel that a 7:45 pm dinner is not good for losing weight!
~500 fitness minutes a week with good variety including cardio and ST ~
Nailed it the week before last, but only made it to 464 last week. Oh well. I am moving on and will make it this week.
~1 mile a day! Run at least one mile per day, every day ~
Nailed it! *fist pumping myself*
~7000 steps per day ~
Ugh! That is all I have to say about this really. For some reason, it has been a major challenge getting past 6,000 to 6,500. I am looking at some more creative ideas for adding steps. This should not be so hard!
~Add in some fun fitness activities as able. Things like snowshoeing, hiking, races and even meeting up with friend to go walking so I am not working out alone. ~
Week before last, I took puppy (actually it is our senior citizen dog, but we call her a puppy) for a nice walk all over town and then took her to get coffee and a doggy treat. She loved it! Nothing extra for last week.
~Happiness journal - 3 things to be grateful for every week ~
This was such a great idea..... *sigh*
That's all for now. Keeping on, keeping on.
