Weight ~ 181 (started at 196)
Well, I did not lose any weight last week but I didn’t really do what I needed to do to lose weight. I did make some changes but didn’t stick to them consistently, which is the key. I won’t even offer any of my excuses like getting kids ready for camp, rearranging/organizing house, holiday, or any of those other excuses that I have. ~smile~
This week has started off much better so I anticipate a better result next week.
Some things that I did learn this week:
- I love tracking my food through My Fitness Pal. When you find a food, it tells you the calories and how many grams of carbs, proteins, and fat. I found out that I eat and drink a lot of carbs. Tracking your food is an eye-opener, for sure.
- I need to move more. I have to purposefully make room in my schedule for exercise. I did not do that last week but did count some of my gardening and swimming with kids in my exercise.
- When you log in your exercise on My Fitness Pal, it calculates the calories you’ve “earned”. My gardening earns me about 160 extra calories for every 30 minutes of work.
- I can not have Coke in the house. If it is here, I will drink it. I am so weak when it comes to the soda.
Today is going well though I am a bit hungry right now and have that caffeine withdrawal headache going on…but this too shall pass.
I’m repeating last week’s goals. I’m going to work at it until I get it right!
