I just was able to read everyone's last week. Welcome to the new folks, and congrats to everyone. Even when there were challenges, you didn't give up. Such an inspiration to me. Work has just continued to be busy so again, here it is Monday and I'm running aronud like a crazy woman. I will have to give my weigh in results later as I didn't take time to weigh in this morning.
As for my last week's report - I was doing pretty good until I went to dinner with a cousin who had flown into town for a few days. I didn't really over indulge per se, but I didn't do what I had planned on doing - only eat half and take the other half home. I ate the whole meal, and split a dessert. I was so full that night when I got home. I ended up grazing on things that had more salt than I needed, so I'm sure I have a lot of extra water weight than I need or want. Hopefully I can watch it this week and flush the sodium out of my system.
With all of this business expansion stuff I have been trying to coordinate during my so called down time, I haven't taken the time to sit down and plan my meals like I should. I just try and remember the positive meals I planned before, and try to make an effort to decrease the bread & carb stuff. I don't think I'm remembering things as well as I should - i think I need to try and plan more so I can do a better job at getting a variety of foods, and stay with in my calorie range!
My 3 Health Goals for the Week:
1. Try and plan meals & snacks better.
2. Drink 9-10 cups of water a day.
3. Get to bed earlier - before 10:00pm!
What are your 3 goals for the week?
Don't think of them as New Year's resolutions but as the 3 things I'm going to focus on to accomplish this week and then do my best at the other stuff. With regards to being more creative with the veggies - have you ever tried hummus? They've got some great flavors. I like to dip carrots and celery in it. It's got some fat (so you'll have to watch that) but it also has some protein and fiber - plus it's flavorful! Maybe that will help!
