Week #3 for My Goals for the First 10 Weeks of 2010
I'm following Steve's Perfect 10 Challenge, which is a 10 week challenge to make progress on 10 goals. The guidelines include updating every Friday on how you're doing. Here are my goals and my status.
- Plan out my weekly menu in advance and preferably use it to grocery shop (weekly menu comes from new Eating Well Diet cookbook or site, SparkPeople, Weight Watchers, or other healthy meals); meals should equal ~1500 calories a day
- How I did: Had another week where I planned well, but busy nights kept us from following through on 2 nights.
- How I did: Did not cook ahead this week.
Plan 2 nights a week where dinner is easy--like hummus & veggies, a vegggie burger or other quick sandwich
- How I did: Did much better on this, this week. Thursday night, for instance, I had to punt because Hubby & I both worked late. But I sat down with the turkey & crackers and some grape tomatoes and salad dressing and some low-fat cheese and calculated what I could have and the calories before I took a single bite. Yay!
- How I did: Success! Packed every day. And ate what I had--even when faced with 2 free lunches in meetings! Woot! Woot!
- How I did: On Monday during our weekend away in Nashville we rose early, did cardio & swam before left to drive the 4 hours home. Tues. we didn't get up early--but we did have 7:30 PM strength training session with Trainer Ray, followed by 30 minutes of cardio, Weds. we got up early and did 30 minutes of cardio, Thurs. we got up for a 6:30 AM training session with Ray (no time for cardio); Fri. no time for gym, but worked out at home. Winning!
- How I did: Less practice on this this week--only Monday. But I plan to go to the pool on Sat. & Sun.
- How I did: FANTASTIC! See above. Plus trainer Ray offered us a 3rd session each week at 1/2 price --will start next week.
- How I did: I rode the bike on Monday (can't remember the time now, but at least 10 min and maybe 12), Tuesday evening for 30 minutes, Weds. AM for 10.
- How I did: Didn't go to church on Sunday because we were out of town
- How I did: See post day before yesterday
I'm a big hugger and toucher in general. Every year at work we have to go to those anti-harrassment training meetings and I follow it up by telling the people who report to me that if I touch or hug them and they don't like it to please tell me! I pat arms, legs, shoulders, whatever is close. . .I put my arm around people. I hug for celebration and to comfort. And I squeeze, rub, and hold on--no tent hugs (heads together butts apart) or one armed pat-pats for me!
