I didn’t work out for the past 3 days, so it makes sense I didn’t quite hit my 7k step goal. I also didn’t hit my calorie deficit goal, but I still lost almost one pound, so I’m happy with the continued downward progress. I know I could lose weight faster if I gave up beer, but I’m just not desperate enough to want to do that yet. LOL. Also, am I the only person who apparently drinks MORE often because of the thought that I could (fat chance in hell) get pregnant? My neighbor and I were talking about this Saturday night over beers while we watched our daughters play together. They are planning on TTC#2 in May (got pregnant 1st month last time), and we decided that we have both started drinking more often as if we need to “get it in” before getting pregnant again. This works if you’re someone who gets pregnant right away. If you’re me, it just means that I’ll drink way too much for… who knows how long. Dammit!
Goals for this coming week:
Average Daily Steps – 7,000/day – I want to keep the ball rolling on having increased movement just be a standard part of my daily routine.
Average Calorie Deficit – 750/day (which would equate to 1.5#/week)
Total # Floors Climbed – 150. I’m upping this goal to remind myself that even if I don’t have time to do the elliptical or go for a run, I DO have time to run the stairs a few times every hour – even if Stella is awake and I’m home alone with her!
Park Father Away. For my entire life, I have been that person who circles the parking lot to find the closest spot. Now that I’m counting steps though, I’m realizing that it’s not such a big deal and really doesn’t cost you any extra time to just park in the first spot you come across and walk. It means (1) more steps for me!, (2) stronger biceps from carrying Stella, and (3) fewer door dings. Win/Win/Win, right? 🙂
