Some of my numbers changed since my last post , because I had to add the rest of the weekend totals, so I am posting the end totals here.
Averaged 90 oz of water per day, so I think I can raise the goal for next week.
I stayed within my coffee allowance, avoided Oreos, didn't grab any candy from the office, and made our menu plan for the week.
Steps walked last week = 124,097
NON SUCCESS -
No fitness plan done for week one.
Today I sat on the couch, watching TV and doing things online until after 2 PM. Finally, I headed out for a walk and it was so hot when I did. I was overdressed and at one point I figured that I could just come back home and call it a rest day. After about 40 minutes I did come back home, but instead of sitting back down on the couch I changed into shorts and went walking for another 30 minutes. It always frustrates me when I spend the day inside only to find out that it is a GORGEOUS day.
At around 5 my walking buddy called and asked if I wanted to go with her so I went out for our normal route. We usually get in about 2.5 miles a day. It was a really good walk tonight and I am glad that she called me.
This morning I got on the scale and was very surprised to see that I had lost 1.5 pounds. As much as I would like to be happy I just don't think it will stay that way. I see the number on the scale go up and down all of the time. I have stayed within the same 5 pound area for months now.
Today I downloaded an app called Lose It and I love the fact that you can scan the food products to log them. This will be very helpful to me in logging my food and I think that it is going to become a very good tool for me. In the past have tried multiple ways to keep track of the calories that I take in, but I was always discouraged when I had to look up the foods. This could very well be the key to my weight loss success.
GOALS FOR WEEK TWO
Wednesday I will take an early walk so that I don't end up beating myself up over it like I did today.
Raising my water intake goal to 80, but I will be aiming for 100 to see if I can do it.
Walking goal is 100,000 steps (10,000 non-work days and 20,000 on work days)
Continue to have dinner finished by 7 with no eating after that.
Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday I will do a fitness workout.
