Last Weeks Goals:
Exercise 4X per week (I’m going to make it I think!)
drink 3 glasses of water per day (yep!)
no eating carbs after 7pm (hmm, need to keep better track of this one, I did it most nights)
How did you get moving this week?
I went to the gym on Monday and Thursday night, hoping to go again today and tomorrow for a total of 4x
did elliptical, weight lifting, swimming, and walking laps around the basketball court
I’m a runner but my foot is recovering from an injury, so I’ve been swimming lately and taking it easy on the walking. Elliptical doesn’t bother my foot too much either.
What was your go-to healthy food item or meal?
I tried a new protein shake, it was okay, the oatmeal was a little powdery tasting.
pre-made protein shakes saved me a few times late at night so I didn’t over eat on carbs, I like this brand from Wal-mart.
Also, for on-the-go, I like to bring along one of these. I can’t eat the whole thing, but it’s cheaper than eating out so I don’t feel bad, for the kids I buy lunchables.
What song got you moving?
didn’t even take my ipod to the gym with me, watched tv there instead
Meal Plan: (for last week)
hamburgers and french fries
chicken fried rice (with cauliflower rice)
ham and beans
sausage egg casserole
chicken cordon bleu casserole
(I eat healthy most of the day and then eat “normal” food for supper with my family.)
What are your plans for next week?
Exercise 4X per week M, W, F, Sat
drink 5 glasses of water per day
no eating carbs after 7pm
I want to track my food on my fitness app this week
Meal Plan for next week:
haven’t made yet, I go shopping on Tuesdays
I feel I did well this week. It got really cold (15 degrees) and it was nice to have a gym to go to. Something I’ve been telling myself for motivation is “you have to put the work in to get results”. Not too brilliant, but it’s working for me. Just trying to stay consistent for now. We have run out of chocolate chips and I’m not going to replace them at the store, too much of a temptation. I haven’t lost any weight this week. I thought about asking for a fitbit bracelet for Christmas, but decided it won’t help me much.
I am linking up with Girls Being Girls Fit Friday link-up. They are a great place for motivation. Also, Elspeth wrote a nice fitness post this week. Because I Enjoy A Challenge. I was at the library when I read her blog post, so I went and checked out “Body for Life for Women“. My husband thinks it’s funny when I read books about exercising, the success stories have been motivating.
