Weekly Review

Good Evening... or Good Morning, because most will be reading this entry tomorrow!

I had 5 days off this week, so I planned to do some fun things and get some house chores done. I did a good job balancing my time between things I wanted to do, and things I had to do. If only I could balance my eating that easily!

Anyway, eating wasn't very good this week. I don't know what it is, but I just cannot get back on the healthy eating bandwagon. I try so hard and have such good intentions on Monday. But, by Tuesday I am eating loads of junk. My willpower is nonexistent these days.

I managed to ease myself back into exercise this week- very slowly... but I'm getting back to it. Doing a lot of walking and some elliptical. Hoping to integrate some yoga and strength in this week.

Let's look at the goals for this week:

1) A Loss- nope, a gain.
2) Various exercise 3x- done! I went for 3 walks and used the elliptical for 30 minutes.
3) Eat at Home- done mostly. My mom took me out one day- of course for fast food- she loves fast food! However, I ordered a salad on the side and a Coke Zero. Overall, not a terribly high calorie meal- about 500 or so.

Next Week's Goals:
1) A Loss- please God let there be a loss!
2) Continue to ease back into regular exercise- maybe a run/walk one morning before it gets hot out.
3) Ease back into tracking calories and limiting intake

You will notice that I said "ease" a lot in this entry. I'm starting to think that maybe I can't go all or nothing. I have to gradually remove things from my diet or replace them with healthy alternatives.

Slow and steady wins the race!

  1. You are right, all or nothing doesn't work so well. Slowly and steadily easing into good habits and out of bad ones is the way to go. Have a great week!
