I did pretty good with keeping up with my goals this past week, but not great.
I did 6 miles on the treadmill (two on Monday, Wednesday and Friday). I also did my 8 min ab workout on Monday night and Wednesday night. After that, I didn't do it. I also didn't do my 30 Day Shred on Tuesday or Thursday. This was a pretty busy week with preparing for Sissy's dance recital. That's behind us now. I hope next week I'll do better.
I lost another pound. I'm down to 204. That's so exciting!!!
I need to increase my water intake. I noticed I was really thirsty late in the day. I feel better when I drink lots of water. It keeps me feeling full.
I met up with my friends for our "happiness meeting". It was really good. I've missed having our meetings. It's great to see how others are keeping up with their goals and what new goals they are setting. We met up at a yummy Mexican restaurant. I wanted to share a tip I've been doing for the last couple of months:
When you are going out to eat with friends, don't be afraid to eat from the menu. Find out ahead of time where you are going to be dining and check out their online dinner menu. Preparing yourself ahead of time will let you know how many calories you need to save for dinner. You get to enjoy your friends without worrying about the calories.
Hope you are all doing well on this first week of the challenge!
