Yeah I think this is actually week 2 for me, too. Oh well! So I think my goals for last week were pretty much the same, except exercise 5 days a week, 2 days with weights and 2 days with pilates.
Unfortunately I got a really bad sinus infection and spent 2 days in bed so I only got in 4 days of exercise, 1 day of weights and 1 day with pilates. Grr! It's also TOM so I haven't stepped on a scale. Last known weight was 208 on last Wednesday morning so I'm really aiming for 206 by this Friday (parents will be in town).
I'd like to get in exercise 4x this week, at least 25 minutes on the elliptical.
Big temptation coming up with Easter and family in town all weekend so my only other goal is to eat sensibly and stay in my calorie range (1400-1600).

Log my food daily - Even on days when I thought the day was lost, I was surprised that I was able to keep the day (on the high end) in my calorie range. The days were off plan from 'what' I ate, but the calories were ok.
Drink water daily - Forgot at the beginning of the week, but was much better the last three days.
Take vitamins daily - also forgot but got better.
Exercise 2x per week (Doesn't sound like much, but it's a reasonable goal based on where I am) - Exercised twice, not robustly, but better than nothing.
Plan my meals weekly - Planned last week's and this week's already planned and shopped for, including a trip to the produce stand. :carrot:
OK - just knowing that I've set these as goals and not wanting to come back and account for accomplishing nothing is helping. ;)

1. Cardio 5 days/week x 60 minutes
2. Restart weight lifting in a formal way
3. Formal stretching routine 3-5 days/week
4. Increase water intake
5. Decrease coffee intake
6. Stop silly snacks that derail me
I did 3 sessions of 60 min. No weights, no stretch :(
Drank 16 oz water before cardio, 16 during, 16 after for 48 oz in 2 hours! (all those years of chugging beer in college paid off!):)
Not so good on the coffee (I do drink it black or with a little milk only):(
No real silly snacks.:)
Had to go out of town unexpectedly, hence less cardio, but I ate raisin bran and no fat yogurt at the hotel instead of a gooey white flour waffle loaded with sticky syrup and greasy butter...yea!:carrot: I made myself finish my cardio tonight before I let myself log on to this site.
Thanks for helping me be honest with myself!:hug:

Hey everyone! It's been at least a week since I've posted. I had some minor drama in my life and then had to deal with the dreaded TOM. Through it all, I did my best to stay on track. Sometimes I was successful other times not so much! :dizzy: Anyway, how is everyone doing? Anyone seen SusanB?
