Checking In – Week 2

Checking In – Week 2

Ok, another week behind me! I’m going to think positive and say that the weight gain is due to new muscle through walking. Though I’m sure next week’s will be even scarier as this was BEFORE Thanksgiving dinner. Hopefully I’ll be able to drop some weight this week and have it look a little less frightening! 🙂 Here are my results:

I also gained .5 inches over all, but the gain was mostly in areas that would normally increase due to walking – like thighs and calves. I also lost inches so all in all, I’m happy with these results. Hopefully as my training intensity increases and my caloric intake decreases I’ll see better results.

I was rather encouraged this week. I’ve been trying to figure out how to add 1.5 hours of morning reading/devotionals to my day when I need to be at the computer by 6:00am to get my morning marketing done. If I get up 1.5 hours earlier, I won’t make it through my Gymboree day. So, I found all of my morning reading on audio, and created 2 weeks of listening lists (in 2 weeks I’ll no longer be working regularly for Gymboree). Now my alarm goes off at 4:30, I select the day’s list, and just doze to it, while trying to listen. Our main alarm goes off at 5:30 and I make tea and coffee, bring it back to bed for Tom and I, and I do my prayers then. So far, it’s working really well. By November I’ll be ready to get up at 4:30 as Gymboree will no longer be an issue. Woohoo!

I kept up with my evening reading except on one night, and I am waiting on my noon reading until I’m done Gymboree – again, I can’t take a break during the day to read, and I’m too tired when I get home to apply the necessary concentration.

I did really well with walking – 6 out of 6 days. Woohoo!

Water was terrible. I will need to really focus on that this week.

Eating was great until Thanksgiving weekend, and I allowed myself to thoroughly enjoyed that! 🙂

This week I add my dinner – protein and a big salad or large serving of mixed veggies.

How are you doing with your goals? What are your goals for the coming week? Share below so we can encourage each other!
