It could be a long winter if the weather stays cold, snowy and icy. I've missed my outside walks the last few days with the snow and icy sidewalks. Today I decided to go on a walk at lunch anyhow and I was surprised at how poor the sidewalks still appeared. In browsing through blogs, I've come to enjoy John is Fit and his weekly check ins. He makes a list of things that he did well for the week and things that did not go so well. I tend to be one of the those "glass half empty" kind of people when it comes to weight loss. I try not to focus on the "what have you done lately?" but it's so hard to focus on the good when I make such stupid choices at times. I will do better!
This week's good things:
Exercised daily at least 30 minutes on the elliptical and hit 10,000 steps daily 5 out of 7 days.
Stayed within my points allowance 4 out of 7 days and had plenty of weekly points to cover the other 3 days.
Did not skip dinner on Thursday even though I was 10 points over my daily points by 3:00pm.
This week's bad things:
Too much mindless eating.
Ate too many Fiber One Bars in one seating and will not be buying them for a while.
Ate 4 peanut butter cookies in one seating without looking back. Would have eaten more, but they were all gone.
I will do better this week. My leader has asked us if we would be happy losing, maintaining, or gaining during this holiday season and I do not want to be one of the gainers. My goal is 194.2 by January 1st and I plan on making it!
