So it’s been two weeks since we started my private Accountability group on Facebook. Let me know if you want in, we have some fabulous ladies in there! 🙂
For the month of March, I finally decided to set some goals for myself after gaining 12 pounds in the past few months! You can read about those goals here. I’m posting a weekly recap on Wednesday about how things are going, so here we go!
Goal 1: Drink more water! At least 106 ounces per day.
- ON TARGET: I am actually really surprised about this one. I’ve cut out all other beverages and have been sticking consistently with water (aside from a little fun in Chicago this weekend for St. Patrick’s Day).
Goal 3: Track all food for 31 days and document it on TweakedFoodie. Goal 4: One cheat dinner for date night per week. Again…trying to “eat in the middle.” This does not mean that I can only go out to eat one night a week, but it does mean that I can indulge in one meal a week.
- ON TARGET: I’m going to say on target for these, even though I did not track this past weekend. I definitely had some cheats, but also had some wins (splitting meals, no late night snacking, brunch and shakeology/veggies only on Sunday) 🙂 Here’s what I’ve been eating!
Goal 5: Weekly weigh-ins every Friday and an update on TweakedFoodie – pounds lost/gained.
- ON TARGET: I weigh in on Friday’s (before the weekend is my preference), but I’ll still post in the Wednesday recap. As of last Friday – I’ve lost 3.2 pounds! I knew that this past week would be less than the previous because it was a pretty big loss, but losing another .4 lbs is still going in the right direction.
- Last week was a total fail, so this was my solution: “I’m adding a reminder to my phone to do this every day at noon. I think that will be a good time since I work from home and I can just zone out for 10 minutes and eat my lunch (hopefully outside if it starts to get warmer!), instead of eating in front of my computer.” I’ve altered this a bit and have been making sure that I take at least 10 minutes of me time during the day – even if it’s just to make lunch. I just focus on what I’m making and nothing else. Even that little bit has helped 🙂
So there we go, thank you all for reading and keeping me honest!
