Week 37 got off to a great start. We were in the gym 3 times and I had gotten in 7 miles of cardio all before Thursday. We were also very on track nutritionally. Things were going great. However, not much success after that. We entertained several evenings, had a few fires to put out in the lives of loved ones, had extra busy work schedules and my energy and will power didn’t follow well. I didn’t bust things open calorically until Sunday. Sunday was the worst with some minor cheats before then. Sunday I broke the rules, even having cake for dessert in spite of not being back on my weight tracker weight range. Week 38 is a new week. Here we come!
Stepping Stones for Success – Week 38
Goal: “To weigh 135 lbs by 12/31/2012. (That is a loss of approximately 40 lb in 1 year).
Action Steps: I will limit my calorie intake to 1400 calories a day, continuing to focus on good nutrition in my choices. I put in 20 miles of cardio exercise. I will also do 2 - 30 minute weight training sessions. I will officially weigh in once this week, marking my progress on the Weight Tracker tool.”
