Power of One - Weigh In
It's weigh in time at the Sisterhood. Let's get right to it...
Here are the nitty gritty numbers --
Last week -- 196
This week -- 196.2
Not what I had hoped for but it is what it is...I'm learning a lot about myself already this year. I'm learning that I am going to need to take the time for myself. I'm learning that I CAN NOT let stress RULE my eating. It doesn't make me feel better and it doesn't help ease the situation. I'm also learning that I need to stop letting the day slip away without getting enough of the proper nutrients in my body. For the past couple of nights I have been sooooo hungry right before bed that I have had a snack (probably why I gained .2 pounds). Although I HAVE made good choices with those snacks I still have eaten very late at night and that's not good for me. Gotta start tracking food again so I know what is going on with the calories...so that is my goal for the week.
I have been doing well with my goals that I established this past week with only taking one day off from exercising (New Years Eve it just didn't happen!!). Since then I have joined in a Facebook Challenge called the 100 Days Challenge where you are supposed to exercise for a minimum of 30 minutes for 100 days....so far so good on that one, too! Last night I would have just called it a night after about 15 minutes had it not been for this challenge but I didn't want to not complete the 30 minutes because I wanted my sticker on my day 4!!
This has been an challenging week -- my hubby is sick, my best friend just found out she has aggressive breast cancer and That Kid is preparing to move into his first non-college related apartment. And like most of the kids in the country we have started back to our homeschool routine. I just have a lot of "stuff" running through my head and I'm trying to make sure I am balancing everything properly.
I also made those pesty goals of cleaning/organizing something in the house for 30 minutes a day....that one seems to be the goal that is most difficult to get moving on. I have done some things every day, but not the 30 minutes I had wanted everyday. Oh well, if I keep at it I will get there.
My goals for the week -- get control of the night eating, and only eat when I'm hungry...not upset or stressed!
Have ya'll seen the Monday Project for the week? It's a great one and very liberating....at least it was last year! I haven't done this years letter yet but I'm still planning to. I hope you decide to participate...it will help you look at yourself from a whole new light. Hope you are having a good 2011 so far!
In other news: I have completed week 7 and I've moved onto week 8 in the Couch 2 5K program -- which in layman terms means I ran 25 minutes straight without stopping. Week 8 is 28 minutes of running without stopping! I did do day 1 but I had to take a "rest" break at the halfway point! The gym is too stinkin' hot for my taste and I got overheated!! I'm ready to do day 2 of Week 8 but I'm really sore so I decided to take a couple of days off from running...my knees were starting to be really sore and I don't want to be sidelined!!
