Weekly Goals - Recap and Next Week

My goals from last week were to:
  1. Watch the nutrition (track what I eat)
  2. Take vitamins every day
  3. Drink 64 oz of water each day
  4. Follow my training plan
  5. Go to yoga once
  6. Drink VERY moderately
And here's how I did:

1. Watch the nutrition (track what I eat) - DONE!

I managed to pretty much track everything everyday. While I didn't necessarily eat the best foods at all times, I was aware of what I was eating and that was really my main goal. Despite not being very strict I still put in under 2000 calories each day, so I think that is okay. I also was given the suggestion of tracking calories through and I checked that out too. I don't think I have the discipline to actually log everything on there, but it is a great resource for nutrition and maybe some day I'll use it on a daily basis. Thanks to Rife with Possibilities for the suggestion! I was also reminded about how the calorie counting practice can sometimes lead to bad things, which I agree with too. At this point in my life I think I'm finally figuring out what balance is and how to implement moderation in my life. I will always strive to achieve this. Bottom line, if you start seeing my ribs through my shirts in photos that I post, please admit me into an institution. Thanks!

2. Take vitamins every day - DONE!

There is one day that I can't remember if I did this, but honestly to hit even 6 out of 7 days is a big WIN in my book. Placebo or not....I'm feeling great.

3. Drink 64 oz of water each day - DONE!

4. Follow my training plan - DONE!

5. Go to yoga once - DONE!

6. Drink VERY moderately - DONE!

I set this goal too late, as Monday I had a mini-bender (not really) of my own at home and shamed myself into adding this goal. Since then I was able to keep my shit in check despite various social obligations, which is unbelieveable.

I can't remember the last time I had this big of a success rate. Perhaps I'm making it too easy on myself. Next week's goals will be similar:

  1. Watch the nutrition (track what I eat). Eat light, eat good shit...carbo load on Friday?
  2. Take vitamins every day
  3. Drink 64 oz of water each day
  4. Follow my training plan. This week it will be light, but I really need to focus on Trigger Point.
  5. Go to yoga once
  6. Drink VERY VERY moderately
  7. Don't freak out about work. (I think bad shit is about to go down and I'm NOT looking fwd to it.)
I can't think of anything else right now - but I think this looks good.

I had a little bender of my own yesterday watching the Eagles game. Needless to say, feeling a little rough right now. I'm staying in and staying away from the booze next wknd. Drying out before we head to New Orleans!

Girl - I hear ya on the bender AND not freaking out at work. The marine snow is totally hitting the fan around there, which explains my obsessive work hours. I'd be over it if I weren't freaking out about the fall out. Anywhoo - good job on the goals - and based on your comment I'm very curious about the Chad situation! ha ha

Nice! You did awesome on your goals! What are you doing to remember you vitamins? I've fallen off the wagon and keep forgetting!

I'm also tracking my food, per the personal trainer's homework. :( I'm realizing how much crap I'm eating! (not crap, but processed foods, you know?)

Good job on the goals and good luck with the week ahead. Take it easy this week with work and the race coming up, it'll be a little stressful but you can handle it! Can't wait for the race next weekend! :)

Nice work on the goals and good luck with this week. However, I don't think you "forgot" to grab a cupcake on Friday :P
