Today is a new day. Now, I didn't have a BAD week last week, but it was not as focused as I need to be in order to be a contender in the Move It & Lose It Challenge. I gained 0.5 lbs this week, so I'm weighing in at 216.5. Not good.
(forgive the funky nightgown picture ... forgot to post a picture earlier!)
But, what did I expect:
Monday - my daughter came to dinner unexpectedly - no exercise, barely made the end of Mamvation TV
Tuesday - my sweet son's 28th birthday plus my 3rd Tuesday at OASIS - women's ministry summer program; I'm registrar and am also taking my FIRST quilting class. Exercised 40 minutes before work, luckily, since there was NO time that night
Wednesday - I have no idea WHAT I actually accomplished but it wasn't exercising!
Thursday - my friend Amy and I are being accountable to each other at work ... I forced in my 51 minutes of walking to a Leslie Sansone DVD
Friday - Amy and I walked 30 minutes at lunch - outside! I never do that. =(
Saturday - Spent the day sewing on my quilt in the AM and the rest of the day getting my sweet daughter ready for her first overnight summer camp - no exercise
Sunday - Sent my sweetie off to camp at 6am, volunteered in the church nursery, cleaned house and hosted family for the boy's birthday party. Homemade pizzas and ice cream cake; yes, I had some of each. And, no exercise.
So, it's a new day. I spent 15 minutes learning Tae Bo with Billy Blanks, and then 30 minutes walking with @LeslieWalks. I'm off to shower before a busy day at work.
What I'm doing right - no soda, no alcohol, exercising more often than before
What I'm switching up this week - I'm going to focus on tracking calories and staying below 1500, getting six fruits/veggies every day, at least 8 glasses of water, and exercising six out of seven days. With my DD gone and hubby working evenings, I feel like I can really concentrate on me for a few days. Let's see what that looks like!
