Weekly check in, weekly goals

May 27, 2008

I reviewed last week and it was really good.

I did great at my 2 day meeting, which was NOT an easy task. I went on to have a good week, preparing lots of healthy stuff, and not letting a stomach bug be an excuse to overeat when I felt better. I managed to stay on track this weekend, which I think is the first time I’ve done well on a weekend since I started back.

These are the goals I set for myself for the week, along with how I did :

  1. Create daily intentions and keep it in mind all day : took me a few days to get to this, but I did it on Thursday and have used it since
  2. Consistently make good food choices : yes!
  3. Keep daily track of the number of fruit & veggie servings : I did – my average was 10 servings a day!
  4. Be careful with cheese : I was. Had cheese 2x, but both times is was AS the protein at dinner, not in addition to…
  5. A four-day challenge : use my daily diet planning sheets TWICE a day to see what that double-dose adds : this has been hard, I did better than the previous week, but still have a ways to go.

Still to be addressed is exercise – I’m going to start thinking about my resistance to it, because it is multi-factorial and I need to understand the whys to get to the solutions. I had every opportunity to go walk on both Sat or Sunday yet I didn’t.

The scale rewarded me with a nice 3-pound loss (which includes the PMS bloat that drove me +1 the previous week). All in all, I’m down 8 pounds in 5 weeks, and while I still have a long ways to go, the number of pounds lost is starting to feel meaningful. I’m still in the Fat Clothes and will be until I’m at least 10 pounds lighter than right now, but at least I’m not busting out of the Fat Clothes anymore.

My goals for this week will be :

So, what are my goals for this week? Mainly I’m staying the same, switching out one, since my challenge w cheese is mainly when my DH is around (and he’s gone this week!)

  1. Create daily intentions and keep it in mind all day
  2. Consistently make good food choices
  3. Keep daily track of the number of fruit & veggie servings
  4. Investigate your resistance to exercise. Make yourself a deadline to try the public pool and a date by which you will either be in a new plan or re-join the gym.
  5. A four-day challenge : use my daily diet planning sheets TWICE a day to see what that double-dose adds
