Fit Mommy Friday
It's check in time! I have to admit that I wasn't looking forward to this week's check in. What with Thanksgiving and all. And especially after the trip to Arizona. But I am going to just bite the bullet and do it.
How did I do with my goals this week? Let's see...
Monday-my water consumption was awesome! I drank about 74oz. Yay Me! I watched my food and controlled the portions. For exercise I ended up doing the stairs at church about 15 times. There are twenty steps up to one level and twenty more to get all the way up. Plus the walking around getting pictures for our homeschool group. I also got to sleep at a decent hour.
Tuesday-my water consumption was again wonderful. As evidenced by the multiple trips to the bathroom every twenty minutes! I controlled my portions and stayed away from junk food. Exercising today consisted of running around with the girls and dancing to music. :) I went to sleep a little late but got to sleep in on Wednesday!
Wednesday-water consumption was around 74 again and I find myself really craving water! I skipped lunch this day by accident because of my exercising. What kind of exercise would cause me to miss lunch? Deep cleaning of the entire house. It took us about 5 hours of scrubbing, vacuuming, washing, folding, dusting, and running up and down the stairs carrying heavy things. I was completely wiped out by the end of the day and fell into bed early.
Thursday-Turkey Day! I was up early doing a little more cleaning and then spent all of the morning cooking and cleaning. After lunch, I cleaned the kitchen and washed dishes. I am so proud of my eating for this Thanksgiving! See my previous post if you want to know more! I even drank all my water for the day and only had one cup of soda. I was so tired that I again went to bed early.
Friday-Today has been a pretty lazy day. I have cleaned and walked all over this house trying to find things. Going up and down the stairs I have tried to squeeze and take my time to get more out of them. I have controlled my eating but my water hasn't been as great-only about 32oz. We even went to the movies and I only drank half of my soda and had just a few hot tamales!
I am feeling great about the changes that I feel/see happening with my attitude towards food and exercising. I am certain to succeed this time and realize my goals of better health and a smaller size.
If you haven't noticed the ticker on my sidebar, it has changed! I have lost 10lbs!! I can't believe it. I am so happy about that. I am trying not to think about the fact that this time last year I was 15lbs lower than that. :( So, I am going to focus on the changes I am making now and keep making choices that are getting me to that goal.
