Well, a week has gone by, so it’s time to check in with myself on how I did with my goal. I wanted to focus last week on drinking one 32oz bottle of water a day. I managed to do that every day except Tuesday. Tuesday, I only got about 3/4 of it down. I also worked a little on tracking last week, I did so-so with it. What I did track, I tracked honestly. And wow – who knew a Jimmy Johns sandwich would be 17 points! Gah! But, at least now I know.
I also made sure I got all my vitamins and supplements taken. It’s already pretty much a habit, but I made sure to check that box three times a day. I want to be sure that I’m getting what my body needs to be healthy, not just for me but for the future when we start a family.
In place of my weekly 3 mile walk, I participated in the Worldwide Photo Walk on Saturday morning and we walked for a little over two hours. I wish I’d worn my pedometer! I did make sure to stay hydrated though. I’ll be posting photos from the walk in the next few days. I got some that I’m pretty proud of.
So, I feel good about how I did last week – mostly I was mindful of my behavior and I tried to stay in the role of objective observer rather than being harsh and judgmental of myself. I had an internal goal to see the scale go down throughout the week, and it did drop by 2.5 pounds towards the end of the week and then went back up two over the weekend.
This week my inspiration is this t-shirt. Nothing special, I know, but I love this t-shirt and I would really like to fit into it by Halloween this year. I’m going to work towards that goal and I think it’s do-able!
So for this week, I’m going to continue to focus on my water, and work on drinking one and a half bottles a day. I’m also attending a new WW meeting tonight. I’ve lost interest in my regular meeting because my new leader is not so good. I’m not inspired or motivated at all by those meetings. So, I’m going to a new meeting tonight and I’m excited about making this change to get myself re-motivated for my weight loss.
