Healthy Steps – Week 23

It was no shock to me that I gained 2.8 pounds this week. I camped and hiked and ate. I ate a lot of unhealthy foods, and I realized that I’m dangerously close to losing all progress. Before I could even think about that, I had to rush out of Weight Watcher’s check in to go on another (I think the last) work trip. making time to think and healthy choices hard to find.

I think the weekly topic for Weight Watchers (Set Your Summer Goals) couldn’t come at a better time. I don’t want to loose my forward progress, and with the summer stretching out before me, this is a great time to contemplate my goals, and maybe even (as they suggest) do a new one.

  • Tracking 4 of 7 days
  • 1 Frappachino per day
  • Eating my prepared food
  • Hit 11,000 all seven days, taking at least one break/lunch walk

Tracking

This is the most basic WW tool, and the one I find most easy to ditch under stress, particularly as the day goes on. With this in mind, I just made myself a little sign at my computer to remind myself to finish out the day and track.

Frappachino

Lately, I’ve been doing better with this on the week days, but each weekend it falls by the wayside. I’m not sure what to do that’s easy enough to start my busy weekends.

Prepared food

Again, I’ve been doing well, but by the afternoon that last batch of carrots does not look as appealing as somethings “fun.” I see a trend of getting more tired as the day goes on…

I would like to add trying some new items as the farmer’s market is now open. How about one new thing a week?

11,000 Steps

I’ve been rocking this, so I’m not going to add here.

Summary

Even if I was perfect this week, I would have to drop 7 pounds, so I don’t think I’ll hit 10% by the end of my 16 week book. But, I do think it’s important to put goals out there. So, here’s my big goal. But the end of summer (Labor day weekend) I’d like to have hit my 10% and removed an additional 12.9 pounds to get to [number redacted, but written down].
