Week 2, complete…sorta :: checking in

Soooo,

my week two wasn’t so awesome.

someecards.com - Giving up on your goal because of one setback is like slashing your other three tires because you got a flat

I didn’t give up on my goal, but I sure as heck slashed the other 3 tires this weekend.

Things were going pretty poorly throughout the week because I hadn’t planned my meals/workouts, but over the weekend, I really fell apart.

If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!  ~ Benjamin Franklin

The only thing I consistently did was to get my water in.  I drank at least 48oz of water a day.

I was following through on my exercise daily, but on Saturday I spent over half the day out of the house, the place was a mess, I ate horribly, we were all a tad on the cranky side and all I wanted to do was curl up in my sweats and be a couch potato for the rest of the night.  Sunday was better feeling wise, but we were again, out of the house for a better part of the day and I just didn’t have the energy to work out when we got back.  I should have done it earlier in the day, but I was in a groove of getting dishes & laundry done and I didn’t want to lose my momentum.

Okay, now that we got that out of the way.  I’m getting up and brushing myself off!  On to week 3!

I am not off to a good start…tile demolition this morning in the master bath, no water this morning due to the tile demo, hubby with a headache and kids home from school…but I’m determined to do better this week!  I’m going to get some kind of plan together tonight hopefully so that I’m not winging it every day.

My exercise totals for last week were 5 days, 226 min and 1514 calories burned.

Upside, I burned 1500 calories…downside, I probably ate a surplus of 1500 calories!

*sigh* C’est la vie, I suppose.

*Cheers* to a better week!

  1. awesome work burning 1500 calories! that’s really good. i made it to one exercise class and went on a long walk, but that’s not exactly enough during the span of a week. i have been drinking about 40 oz of water daily if i remind myself, on the bright side.

    • Thanks, Jo! Great job on your water intake! 2 days of sweating it out is better than none! Exercise is so difficult to get in. I find that it completely takes over my day if I let it. I’ll be honest and say that it is the one thing that I can’t wait to take a break from (even though I unintentionally took 2 days off over the weekend). It’s getting old trying to fit it in every day. It’s probably that I’m just bad at scheduling it though. ;)
