I’m honestly pretty happy with this week! I either sprained or broke my toe on Wednesday night while packing for St. Louis, and so I never did any runs or anything while we were there (Thurs-Mon). I still managed to keep my step count up pretty high though! I started tracking food, but it was just too hard while eating out / eating at other people’s houses because it was all a guess, so I decided to say screw it and stop tracking while we were there. 🙂 For the most part I made good choices – Saturday was full of cold beers and the best mac’n’cheese I have ever eaten (Ann – send me that recipe pretty pretty please?!), but other than that I did great. Packing healthy snacks/sandwiches for travel days goes a long way towards controlling calories and money spent as well.
At any rate, I’m happy that my weight stayed basically the same after a week where 5/7 days I was on vacation, but now it’s time to buckle down and get that scale moving down again!!
Goals for this coming week:
Average Daily Steps – 9,000/day
Total # Floors Climbed – 150
Average Calorie Deficit – 750/day (which would equate to 1.5#/week)
Chug a glass of water before meals!
Log your calories before eating your meal. I know for me, if I knew that [insert food item here] was going to be 400 calories, I wouldn’t have eaten the entire thing and asked for seconds! It always helps me to be more mindful if I’ve logged it in and said that’s it – that’s what I’m eating for this meal. If I am still hungry later, I have nothing against eating a snack, but at least then I’m not eating portions of high calories foods without thinking about it first!
