South Beach Diet - Weekly Goal - week of August 10

View Full Version : Weekly Goal - week of August 10

08-10-2003, 09:13 AM
How did everyone do with their weekly goals last week? My goal was to drink my water, and I did very well, getting at least 64 ounces each day, and usually more!

My goal for this week is to find little ways to work extra exercise into my day. For example......

:flow1: parking at the far end of the parking lot and walking a little to get where I'm going......

:flow1: taking the stairs instead of the elevator whenever possible......

:flow1: remembering that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, and then taking a meandering path to get where I'm going.....

:flow1: at home when I'm downstairs, going upstairs to use the bathroom instead of using the one downstairs (which should give me plenty of extra trips due to all the water I'm drinking)......

:flow1: when coming home from shopping, instead of trying to carry everything in one trip from the garage to the house (and breaking my arms in the process :lol: ), making several trips to carry bags/packages in one or two at a time......

So ladies, what are your goals for the week? :)

My goal last week was to eat dinner at a "normal time" and I did make three nights by 6:00 (and it would have been everynight at 9:00 pm if I hadn't had a "goal") so I did well ...

I've already planned my menu thru Friday, so my goal this week will be to stick exactly to it ... no nuts when I get home from work or snacking (even on celery) when I'm making dinner ...

Last week my goal was to drink more water, and I did pretty well. Need to continue working on that.

For this week my goal is to get to bed early every morning and sleep only 8 hours. I have had the bad habit of staying up in the morning then sleeping halfway through the evening. I tried a new approach last week, and it worked! I even exercised everyday when I got up. So, my goal is to maintain my new routine.

I will add to that: if I wake up in the middle of the day HUNGRY, which I often do, I will eat a cheesestick or a slice of ham, not a piece of bread! Yikes! I have to break that bad habit fast!

Good luck, everyone!

My goal for this week will be to exercise at least 3 times. I walked twice last week. Let's see if I could increase it by 1 this week.Keeping myself on track will be a daily goal. Julie

My goal for the week is to STICK to this Diet:D
I have done really wekk in the past weeks. I am very much a HUGE soda fan:) I slowly eliminated from my meals, and belive me, that was NO EASY FEAT, so I am PROD to say , I have been Soda free for 1 week:)

Mainly water, or Sun tea ( no sugar added ) just a twist of lemon:)

I am trying to give up my afternoon snack. It is too hard for me to stop eating if I have something around 3:00.

My goal for the week will be to not have an afternoon snack. And to remember I will not die if I don't have one.

I want to drink lots more water. I'm not doing a good job with the water. I 've totally given up Coke. But I've been drinking too much Crystal Light. I am changing that and brewing my own tea, but it is water I want to make king.

I will try to be more patient about loosing.

I want to stay off the scale.

My goal for the week is to leave the nuts alone! Why are they so addicting? I also need to drink more water. It's PMS week so this will REALLY be challenging

My weekly goal is to drink more water, get rid of this flu, and get back into eating salads for lunch. I tell you...when you are sick...the last thing you want is a salad!!!

The oatmeal has been very good though!

Let's keep it up ladies!! I'm shooting for 2-3 more pounds gone by Friday...and I've lost 14 so far since July 8th...

my goal for this week is to exercise. i started phase 1 a week ago tomorrow and haven't been working out - i've felt somewhat weak and had headaches so i've been just trying to be more active. i've lost 7 pounds so far this week, but i don't feel like it's a "real" 7 pounds since i had just put on about 3.5 due to a long weekend of binging on lots of bread. we'll see how next week goes, but i really need to start exercising so my body FEELS better.
