Weekly review

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

I intended for these blogs to become daily check ins, but I only seem to be able to do it once a week consistently, so I will make them into a weekly review. Anything in between will be bonus!

My weigh in last Wednesday was 229.2, I was satisfied with that. My goal for this week is 228 again because I didn't get there last week.

My daily goals have been

Walk 20 minutes: I was able to accomplish this only 2 or 3 times this week. I haven't been getting up as early as I had been hoping, and if I don't do it in the morning, it doesn't happen. I need to start recruiting my family to walk with me, it can be a 3 person rotation for them and I will get to spend time with them all one on one at least once a week.

Eat 8-10 freggies: I cannot find a single day when I accomplished this goal. I have been getting more mindful of it though, so that is an improvement.

Drink 8 cups of water: CHECK

Use my food journal: I used it everyday but one. Each day wasn't used fully, but I will improve on that this week. Being more consistent with this will help me work on my freggies intake too.

Write my morning pages: Twice. I notice that when I don't do this in the morning, I don't get it done. That has to be done before I get on the computer!

So, I see that I need to work harder on my walking, freggies, food journal and morning pages. I have the water intake down pat, so that is really good. I plan to check in with my weigh in tomorrow, we'll see what happens!

    You are right that just by thinking about the freggies goal, you are doing yourself a big favour and moving in the right direction! Maybe you aren't hitting your goal yet because you haven't found a way to incorporate enough fruits and veggies into your diet (that can be VERY challenging) BUT I'd wager that you are eating MORE freggies now than you were when you weren't being mindful of it.

    I think you are doing great! You've been almost always using your food journal and I know you didn't walk every day but you still did it 2 or 3 days in the week! Again, I bet that this is something you weren't getting in at all before you put this plan in place!

    Baby steps...you will find as you keep going, you will be more consistent with each goal. Just remember you can't change all of them over night, but it looks like you are definitely headed in the right direction!
