Week 9 Summary

Categories: Weekly Summary

Hello everyone!

I made it through week 9!  Man, that was a tough one.  I had to deal with some lack of sleep issue for a few days.  Got in some power house adventures and just all around craziness in general.  I didn’t hit some of my goals this week, but I still feel really good about what I did accomplish.  Here we go!

Lessons Learned this Week:

  • Walking a 5k wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be.  I think with the combination of heat, no shade and burning blacktop did not help the situation, but I did it!  I finished the Color Run (walk)!
  • I can enjoy my smoked, delicious meats on my long journey and still lose weight!  Thats right, I did a big cook last weekend and we ate baby back ribs for three nights.  Yum!
  • Getting of the train 1 stop early helps rack up those steps!  I started doing this on my way in, in the morning when its still on the cooler side.  Not too far and it helps wake me up.
  • Squirrels love to stop and pose for pictures.  On my morning walks to the train, I encounter squirrels practically every morning.  I have been taking snaps of their cuteness and sharing them with my friends.

Week 9 Goals Check:

  • Stay Hydrated – A++  I drank tons of water last week.  The only thing I need to do better here is making sure I am entering in the app to track it better.  I know I drank plenty tho.
  • Walk 10,000 Steps Per Day – B  I missed two days, I did make up for some of that on 5k walk day tho 😉
  • Maintain a 500-Calorie Per Day Deficit – A+  Feels so natural now and I ate some pretty awesome food this week.
  • Altered Yoga 3 Times Per Week – F  I didn’t even try.  No excused, I just didn’t do it.  The shame!
  • Water Zumba One Day Per Week – F  Nope, didn’t happen.  My bad!
  • Meditation 4 Times Per Week – A  Nailed it!
  • Reflect On My Goals Every Day – C  I didn’t check on my board that much this week, which is why I probably didn’t hit some of my goals.  I will get that straightened out.
  • Keep Posting On My Blog and Facebook – A++ This one is no problem.  You guys are so awesome!  I love all the likes and the support you provide.  Thank you!!!
  • One Hiking/Adventure Day This Week – A+  Totally nailed this one, I did a 5k with one of my best friends and went to the beach and walked on it for almost 2 miles with the hubs and my daughter.  Nice!
  • Lose 1 Pound Per Week – A!  I lost 1.1 pounds this week guys!  I have lost a total of 30 pounds now.  AWESOME!

Week 10 Goals:

  • Stay Hydrated.
  • Walk 10,000 steps per day.
  • Maintain a 500-calorie per day deficit while still enjoying delicious food.
  • Altered Yoga 3 times per week to avoid irritating my chest injury.
  • Water Zumba one day per week.
  • Meditation 4 times per week.
  • Reflect on my goals every day.  Think I’m going to come up with a different way to do this.
  • Keep posting on my Blog and Facebook.
  • One hiking/adventure day this week.
  • Lose 1 pound per week.

Okay, so I didn’t hit all of my goals, but as you can see, I still packed a lot in there.  This week is going to be a busy one too.  I have a concert on Friday, which will consist of lots of dancing.  I also have another 5k this weekend, Race for the Cure.  It’s going to be a very challenging week for me, but I know I can do it because you guys have my back!  I have to give a special shout out to Coni!  She stuck through that grueling sweaty 5k mess with me.  Thanks Coni, love you tons!

Well thats a wrap everyone!  Thank you checking in and reading my week 9 summary.  I really dig you guys!

    Great job! Way to stick it out! I know how hard it is to complete an event when it is so warm, but your determination prevailed again! And again I’m very proud of you! Keep up the great work!
