Default Challenge Yourself for the Week of May 1-7, 2011!

Quote:
Weekly challenges are a great way to stay accountable on your goals over shorter terms. You choose your goal for the week. It may or may not be sustainable over the long term. If a challenge/goal is not working after one week, re-evaluate and modify or move on. If you're thriving and you like it, feel free to reuse goals week to week as you integrate the healthy habits you develop with your routine!

Let us know your goal for this week and be sure to check in along the way and at the end to let us know how you're doing!

Feel free to tell us about how your goal went last week too!
Have a great week!

My goal for this week is to record what I do each day for my health. That'll include scheduled exercise, what I eat and drink, remembering to take all my meds, extra walks and things like that. I have a chart for the week on the fridge right now.

I tanked last week so am happy to start a new week.

Goals:
1) Exercise every day
2) drink at least 80 oz of water
3) no grains again. I'm still having issues with this one

5/1: 2/3, grains before I posted the challenge. oops
5/2: 3/3 in spite of crazy day. I can do it!
5/3: 1/3
5/4:2/2
5/5:2/2 exercise was only a 15 minute walk between places but in a 15 hour work day that's still something!
5/6:
*this isn't the week to get super strict. With 12 hour days on the road I am going to pick up some whole wheat sandwiches (co-op, yummy on plan foods) I can eat while traveling. I'm going to call #3 a fail this week and really focus on water, exercise even if it's just walking around the Capital during breaks, and staying on plan.

I'm getting lazy again. So busy focusing on whole foods that I'm not paying enough attention to other things I think. So my goal for this week is to get back in the habit(s) of exercising every day and drinking lots of water.

I'll have to be careful with the exercise this week as I have a slight back injury that will slow me down a bit, so my goal will be food related this week.

Goal: Stay under my calorie limit every day. Tracking everything that goes in my mouth (Yes, even a taste while cooking!)
