Operation: Mexico (Eat clean, move booty)
Friday, February 21, 2014
Late-week report on my goals for being able to put a bathing suit on more happily in a month (eeek, 28 days!):
4 days at 15K+ steps
1 day at 10K+ steps
Kicked a** at the gym including 2 killer ab workouts, 2 arm days and 2 leg days. Hit the stairmaster and the rower multiple days even though they KILL me (but I can always get through 5 or 10 minutes. Hey, it adds up!)
Just exceeded weekly fitness minutes goal of 960
Spark has my calories up really, really high because of how much I walk, which I'm not sure is accurate (and I'm contemplating putting my settings back to a set calorie range), but I am definitely teetering on the top edge of that some days (especially with valentine's chocolates still sitting around-- well, not anymore...). For the most part, though, success! I have found ways to make sure more of my meals are made from scratch at home and I don't have sweets or carby snacks around... I did much better this week not buying any at all and it certainly helps. I will be relying on limited fruit and Lara bars and lots of herbal tea to satiate my sweet tooth (try Healthy Fasting by Yogi!
) and planning every morsel as best I can. I really want control over my eating, and the best way for me is to plan things out in advance and only have those things available.
Thanks for all of your kind words on the last blog and your suggestions, too. You guys are
