Last week ended up being far busier than I expected! Isn’t that how it always works? You make plans and craziness always seems to happen. Everything is great, but the blog takes a back burner to life and I didn’t have a chance to update more last week. I’m really working on getting back into the groove and habit of posting because it does help me to reflect on my progress and struggles while also being held accountable so I’m going to make more of an effort this week!
What really helped me last week was that I did plan my meals for the week on the weekend. When the week got crazy I didn’t have to think about meals, I knew what I had prepared or shopped for. It made life so much easier!
I’m happy to report that I lost 2.8 pounds this week!
I’m feeling good still and it helps to have had a big loss in the beginning because it always feels good when you are doing well. It encourages me to keep it up because I want to see more 5 pound stickers! Baby steps.
Last week I could have improved on the exercise front. I made it to the gym only once, I normally have my class twice a week. With the weather I also didn’t get out as much as I should have with Bear. He did a lot of running around in the yard and a lot of playtime in the house, but with the temperatures he didn’t have as many walks as I would like to give him.
So my goal this week is to focus on adding in more activity to my day. I work at a desk and read and research basically all day long. I need to get moving more. I need to take more stairs and take a little break in the day to go for a walk. I’ll continue to focus on my food and weigh, track, and measure, but not I’m going to try and move a little more.
Hope you all had a good week!
