I had an awesome week this week. Not only because I lost some weight this week, but I feel really good at being back at it and moving forward again. It’s a great feeling. The new process seems to be working out pretty well. Adding to this blog everyday and looking at what I accomplished each day is helping me stay focused. Weighting things by their importance to me also seems to be working out better for me mentally. When I miss something, I’m not beating myself up as much.
Let’s break it down:
I logged all of my food, hit my calorie deficit and drank tons of water. I forgot to weigh in this day (probably because I knew it was going to be ugly), I gained 12 pounds on my little two week vacation. OUCH! I was pretty lazy today, I didn’t move very much at all.
I did much better at getting off my but and moving, I didn’t hit 10k, but got in 7,500 much better! Logged all my food and drank all the water. I made good meal choices and had a 700 calorie deficit, NICE. I hit 9 out of 12 on my 250 steps per hour goal. This is going to be a tough one to hit because of work meetings, I don’t really have any control over that, unless I stand up during the middle of a meeting and walk in place. Not sure how well that will go over =)
Great day! I hit 11 out of 12 of my 250 steps per hour today. Not so many meetings so I was able to get up and move. I didn’t hit 10k today, but I got up to 7,811… improvement! Logged all my food and had a -635 calorie deficit. Still haven’t hit my maximum water goal, but I am well hydrated.
I fell a little behind on my water today, not sure why. Maybe I should set myself some sort of reminder for that. I hit 9 out of my 12, 250 steps per hour. Lots of meetings today. I fell behind on my steps today too, 5,800. I did manage to log all my food and hit my calorie deficit. Win!
Bad day on the steps, meetings all day again and a little frantic getting things done at work. I did manage to get in 6,300 and only hit 7 out of my 12 steps per hour goal. I logged all my food and hit my calorie deficit. I did better on my water today too. I will be so glad when this week is over… it’s been nuts!
Bad day for steps. I worked from home today to get the furnace worked on and that took half the day. I did log all my food, but only a 400 calorie deficit today, still pretty good tho. I’m so glad it’s Friday, I really need the weekend.
My day started out strong, I got up early and ran all my errands and did chores around the house and was moving pretty good. Then in the afternoon, I fizzled. I managed to get in a little over 4,800 steps. I could have done better. I didn’t get my adventure day in either this week. Boo! I did drink all the water, log all the food and hit my calorie deficit.

Not too horrible for my first week back at it. I achieved a B for the week!
I’m feeling really focused and driven right now. I think my new process is going to help me to stay more focused and accountable. It is more work, but I think it’s worth it. Going to try and step up my step game this week. Even tho I have been drinking a lot of water, I need to be drinking more. I lost 3 pounds when I weighed in this morning guys! So I know I am on the right track. Thanks for looking in on me, I will see you all next week!
