I'm guessing a lot of you are like me and just completed your first full week back to a routine - including for many of us back to a full week of work - since the holidays. So how did you do? Take a minute today, review your goals and see how you did and what you might need to adjust or change.
For me, here are some of my goals and how I did:
- Exercise - I did really well this week. From last Sunday until today, I walked or ran over 27 miles. And I'm planning on walking several miles today. I worked out twice every day with cardio and strength. So I'm right on track here!
- Food - I did really well. Certainly not GREAT, but quite well. No "naughty" foods and good portions. The one mistake that I made, which I have made in the past, is not eating enough during the day, so when I get home I am STARVING and snack too much before dinner. The snacks I chose were HEALTHY, like raisins, but I still ate too many. I've been really frustrated with the scale this week and was determined to get it down. I weighed in at 118.2 this morning, which is within my "you're good" zone, so I'm going to eat more during the day so I don't make this mistake next week.
- Organization/Cleaning - I did pretty well with this, but it's MUCH harder to keep up when I am working 8 hours every day!! But I did do a little every day, and should be able to take this weekend to catch up on things. We'll see what I am able to do this weekend before deciding if I need to adjust my plan!
- Being a better pet parent - I think I treat my animals really well. They are my babies! But there is always room for improvement, and sometimes when I am busy or stressed I don't take enough time to talk to them and pet them and play with them. I definitely improved this week and will continue to try to get better!
Hope everyone has a fun and healthy weekend!
