All text. Boring. I know.
So I think we have something pretty interesting dynamics going between Linda and I here. Linda has managed to throw herself into the deep end and swim like she means it. She works out two times a day. She has already lost an inch in her waist AND her hips.
I’m sort of slowly easing into the shallow end. And we are both going about it the “right” way, in that we are doing what we can.
Things I am doing well:
Breakfast, lunch and snacks. I am sticking to the plan. Cereal or a low point (Weight Watchers measurement. I understand it better than calories.) frozen meal. Snacking on fruit (apples this week, much more filling than bananas) and almonds and a Fiber One bar around 4 PM. I ate lunch out with a friend on Wednesday, so I had cereal for dinner. And I cheated this AM and had four Dunkin Donut munchkins that my boss bought us as a reward for...well, life. But I planned that. And I feel OK about it.
Working out. I have done Pilates or taken a walk every day but Tuesday.
Things I am doing OK:
Stairs. I managed all three trips (Two times all the way up and all the way down, basically 8 flights. I do one around 11 AM, One around 2 PM and one around 5 PM) Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday and Thursday I managed two trips each day.
Working out. I’m not trying to confuse. I am doing well with doing it every day, but I need to do more. I need to make sure I am doing at least 30 minutes. Right now I am doing 10 some days. A single 10 minute abs work out. And that is better than nothing. Right now my main goal is to make myself do something once a day 4 days a week. My larger goal is 30 minutes a day 4 days a week. I know that’s not much, but it’s more than I’ve been doing. Once I get there I will make a new goal. Maybe 45 minutes.
Things I am not doing so well:
Dinner. I am not doing so smashing at portion control OR what I am selecting for myself. Working on that is my number one goal next week.
I decided not to take my measurements this week since I don’t expect there is any real improvement there. I don’t want to bog myself down too much with numbers, because what I am more focused on is changing my lifestyle. If I can get that under control, fitting into the pants will be natural.
How did you do this week?
