Last week, I spent time strength training, which was reflected on the scale. This week, I want to see the numbers go down again, way down actually. I would love to lose 2 pounds this week, but my goal is to drop at least 1.2 pounds. I know that if I accurately monitor what I am eating, count my calories (i.e., log all of my foods) and workout, I should come close to that goal loss; as long as I get in enough calories.
Here are my weekly goals:
- Exercise - I am starting a new workout this week (Body Rev / Cardio Conditioning) and although I won't complete the workout I had scheduled for today, I will be getting it in tomorrow (so two in a day, something I have been aiming towards). I surprised myself with how many days I was able to get in two workouts last week and that motivates me to get in two workouts each day this week. Therefore, my short term goal is one workout per day, with my long term goal being two workouts per day.
- Water - I need to keep drinking water and as much as I possibly can. My goal last week was to drink an entire CamelBak each day, but I managed to get in more and I want to keep that up.
- Balanced Eater - I have a thing for rice cakes and for the past week I have been snacking on them. I normally eat these as one of my snack, while I try to eat peaches or pineapples as another snack. That allows me to eat three balanced meals. I eat the same thing. on the same day each week (ex. Tuesday - Eggo's, Wednesday - boiled egg, etc.) and have been trying to bring some balance to that. I want to get in more protein versus carbs, but I have been struggling with that. I want to get in more veggies, fewer starches; more protein, fewer carbs.
I would definitely love to see a loss on the scale this week and accomplish all of these goals and I know that if I put my mind to it and believe in myself, that everything will fall into place and I will have a successful week.
