After last weeks 4 (yes, 4!) rest days, I was determined that I was not going to have another week like I did last week.
When it came to exercising I feel that I did pretty good (and that is not to toot my own horn). I worked out all 5 days this week, like scheduled. Yesterday, I knew a terrible storm was going to blow through that night and that we would probably lose power (which we did) so I moved my workout to the morning. That was the best decision I could have made because it proved to me that I am truly dedicated to changing this lifestyle.
I can't help but be proud of myself because I did make it all 5 days, adjusted my schedule and I even beat a couple calorie goals I had.
My water intake has definitely improved. Numerous bottles a day, plus refilling various water bottles has left me a happy (not dehydrated) camper! This is something I have definitely been struggling with lately and I hope to only improve on that.
When it comes to stopping the useless snacking, I could have done better. I seem to have an obsession with Otis Spunkmeyer bake-up brownie rounds. One day I
I would say that I focused on round eating this week. For three straight days I had a tuna fish sandwich at lunch (I can't say that I won't fix another one for lunch today) but it was better than a high calorie meal. Dinner has been pretty good as well (yesterday was an exception) with most of my dinners being my higher calorie meals. Breakfast has also been balanced.
Overall, this week was very good. The numbers on the scale have fluctuated so much recently that I don't know what to expect. Some weeks I lose, others I gain. Two weeks ago I lost over a pound, last week I gained over two. It's a never ending battle but I am here to push through that. If I gain weight this week, it doesn't mean that I will be giving up, it means that I have a few more adjustments to do. If I lose weight this week, other than being happy, it means that I am doing something right and need to continue on that.
