Well, I’m fairly happy with how I did this past week. I didn’t track calories every day that my family was here – too much eating out and throwing BBQs and drinking beer so it was hard to accurately track when I was doing that kind of stuff – but I made decent food decisions and I was great about moving my body. I was off of work Friday-Monday, and I got 10k, 9k, 4k (Harvey’s baptism and then a cruddy, rainy day so not much time to work out), and 14k. Not bad since my goal is 6k steps per day! My 7 day average was 7,500 steps.
This week though, I am back at tracking my calories on MFP. You really can’t outwork a crappy diet, and I need to remember that. Since my family left, I’ve tracked everything I have eaten, taken a break from drinking any alcohol, and am working on getting back into my healthy eating routine. It feels good!
Oh – and on Monday, even though we had a big Memorial Day BBQ filled with good food and drink, I at least started the day out with a healthy activity – a 5k with my little sis!
Goals for this month:
- Track my food in MFP every day and stay within the allowed limits (I have it set at a 0.5# loss per week & it syncs with my FitBit)
- Do some sort of workouts on both Saturday & Sunday when I have Charlie around to help with the kids
