Monday Accountability ~ 3/10/14

Well, it’s been a week since my last post. I haven’t fallen off the earth or sunk into depression, I’ve just been really busy. I learned this week that if I don’t take the time to prep posts on my days off, then I run the risk of not getting posts up when I get busy. But I did accomplish a lot this week… my apartment is finally clean and my recumbent bike is finally built. The only bummer part of the week was that Cheshire was sick for about a couple of days (I think he ate something that didn’t agree with him), but he is back to his normal crazy self today!

So how did I do last week?

Workouts:

I did not follow my workout plan this week at all. There was no Zumba, no kickboxing, but there was a lot of walking. And I tried to keep my activity level up throughout the week as much as possible, like taking the stairs instead of the elevator most of the week.

Eats:

I ate out a couple of times this week, including 2 fast food trips. This wasn’t ideal, but sometimes life does happen and you have to do the best you can. I did increase the amount of meat that I ate this week and it did help to eliminate the constant feeling of exhaustion that I was feeling before.

Overall:

While I did not follow my plan at all this week, I was still focused on being as active as possible. I definitely could have made some better food choices throughout the week, both in portion sizes and actual foods eaten, but I am learning a little bit more about what my body actually needs to function at its best. I did start tracking on My Fitness Pal again yesterday (though I only tracked breakfast and lunch), and am planning to continue to track my meals and workouts there again. I am also trying to remember to wear my Fitbit more, though I have to find where Cheshire has hidden the clip.

    Hey you are doing great. Don’t worry about not following your workout plan totally. I think the point is keep “movement” for at least 30 minutes a day and it helps when you are busy. Keep moving and you’ll make much progress later.

      Thank you! That is one of the things that I have definitely been working on… getting as much movement into my day even if I can’t do a full workout.
