Every week I plan on posting an update about my progress towards better health. I will post goals I want to accomplish in the upcoming week, if I accomplished the goals I set the previous week, current weight, if I lose or gain weight (hopefully only lose weight), and a brief summary of my activities.
Goals from previous week
Walk at least 5 miles no 😦
Do the BeFit in 90 workout each day as instructed yes!
Drink lots of water yes!
Eat healthy meals/snacks every 2-3 hours yes!

Woohoo! I lost 3 pounds this week! I’m on fire! LOL
All enthusiasm aside, this week has been a hard one for me. I must admit I am both proud and disappointed in myself this past week. As you might know from my posts, I have been very stressed and anxious all week waiting for the lab results from my daughter’s blood work. I have tried hard to keep myself from falling into the usual stress habits I previously embraced, such as becoming lazy, sleeping a lot, eating A LOT (of bad foods), not exercising, and other unhealthy habits.
Overall, I believe I did pretty good. I continued to follow my fitness program. If I didn’t have an actual fitness program like BeFit in 90, I don’t know if I would have exercised as much as I did. Thankfully, it kept me on track with my workouts and I did every single one. 🙂 I didn’t take naps when Peanut did, although I wanted to. I also made sure to drink plenty of water and eat healthy snacks like grapefruit (almost ate one everyday), strawberries, broccoli, granola bars, and other delicious healthy goodies.
I am disappointed in some of the things I did (and didn’t) do. The weather this week has been crazy. Its either been storming, sweltering, or freezing. All in the same week to top it off. I didn’t go for a walk once this week and I am rather annoyed at myself for not going. There was a few possible windows of opportunity where I could have gone on at least a short walk but I didn’t. I made excuses when I should have just gone on a walk. I will try harder this week to go on the walks I enjoy. Hopefully, Peanut and the weather will be more accommodating this week.
I have also been eating some unhealthier foods as well. This week I’ve eaten some pizza (no dairy), chicken salad sub (delicious but too much mayo), and tofutti (dairy free ice cream). I am pretty disappointed in the food choices I’ve made. I will be more careful with what I eat this week coming up.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week! 🙂
