Power of One Week 2 Check-in

Power of One Challenge
This week: -3.2 lbs
Challenge: -2
Overall: -28.8

That’s right – I’m down this week! Clearly I did something right this week. w00t! Some good habits are starting to take hold. I feel like they’re a bit tenuous right now, and that if I slack at all, they’ll be gone. So, the goal for this week is to just keep on what I’ve been doing, and be vigilant to not slide back.

Let’s look at what I’m doing right:
Eating: Much better this week than last. I kept up with my fruits and veggies – even picking f/v before going for other less-healthy things. I also resisted the urge for seconds at dinner the couple of times I wanted them this week. We’re keeping better things in our house, and keeping out the things that I binge on.

Drinking: Still off the pop this week – been off for 9.5 days; shooting for two weeks. There’s only been a couple times that I’ve been craving it, so this hasn’t been as much of a challenge as I thought it might be. I’ve continued downing the water, and I need to brew another pitcher of iced green tea today, but once I’ve done that, I’m confident that I’ll make my two week goal.

Exercise: I killed this week on this goal. I did my EA Sports More Workouts 6-week challenge on Thurs, Fri, Mon and Tues. Then on Saturday I did the Sisterhood Virtual 5k. And on Sunday, I was inspired by my marathon-running friends to do 26.2 miles on my stationary bike(!). Total for the week was 295 minutes.

Next week? Hopefully just doing more of the same.

    Way to go!!! Love how you rocked the exercise this week! (And pretty please, have your mojo come and kick my mojo in the posterior. It needs to know that vacation time is over and it’s time to get back to it.)

    What a great week you had! Very smart to focus on keeping up what you’ve been doing. One thing that has helped my husband and myself is that I don’t cook as much food as I used to. I don’t really allow enough for 2nds anymore and if anyone is still hungry they have to have a piece of fruit or something instead. Keep up the awesome job!
