I’m definitely happy with a loss this week, as my eating/drinking has been a bit all over the board. Yesterday after the memorial service, I came home, skipped dinner, and ended up having five beers and two cigarettes for dinner. 😛 NOT my finest moment, but I just wanted to sit on the back deck by myself and cry for awhile, so I did. I definitely want to focus this week on getting quality calories (as opposed to empty calories!) into my body.
Goals for this coming week:
Average Daily Steps – 6,500/day – I still want to work on upping my daily steps. This past week I was about 6k, 5k, 6k, 11k, 6k, 7k, 4k.
Average Calorie Deficit – 750/day (which would equate to 1.5#/week) – I need to stay diligent about tracking my food and make sure I’m counting every bite of Stella’s food that goes in my mouth! I also want to make sure I’m eating more veggies every day.
Total # Floors Climbed – 100. I figured out this week that FitBit requires a 10′ elevation gain at a time to count it as a “floor” – and a lot of times my stairs don’t quite cut it. BUT, if I bend my knees at the bottom before I start, then I get credit for the flight. Annoying, but it works, and it means I do a few extra squats every day!
Chug a glass of water a few minutes before meal time! This helps to “fill” you up before you start eating, so it will slow down your food intake and allow you time to figure out if you’re actually still hungry (not to mention it will help to hydrate you).
