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 10 miles yes!
  • Do at least one yoga workout = nope 😦
  • Try to eat more veggies as well as fruits yes!
  • Eat small healthy meals/snacks every 2-3 hours throughout the day yes!
  • Drink more water throughout the day. (I drink a ton of water since my daughter is still nursing but I need to drink more now that I am working out) yes!

Goals for the upcoming week

  • Walk at least 10 miles
  • Do at least one yoga workout
  • Do at least one step aerobics workout
  • Try to eat more veggies and fruits

Weekly Summary

I was really busy this week but I made sure I had plenty of time for walking. Not only did I beat my goal of walking 10 miles, I crushed it!!! I was a walking machine this week. The weather was great and I just wanted to be outside walking. I didn’t think I walked as much as I did though. I walked for a total of 15.04 miles this week!!! All I have to say is WOW! No wonder I lost 3 pounds.

I got so caught up in walking this week I completely forgot I wanted to do a yoga workout. I’m not making excuses though. I should have paid attention and remembered to do it. I’ll make sure I do one this week. Otherwise, I completed all my other goals for last week. Drinking a lot of water this week was too hard because I have been so thirsty from all the walking. I’ve been drinking water like crazy and I still feel thirsty.

I have been adding more veggies into my diet this week, including broccoli, and salads. I have been doing great with eating fruits this week as well. I love eating fruit. Speaking of which, I have some yummy grapes and pears in the fridge I’m going to go eat.
