Where did everyone go this past weekend? The roads, stores and my Weight Watchers meeting were all scarce of people. It was nice but also a little eerie!
Weekly Movement & Nutrition
Since Wednesday is New Year’s Day (and a blogging holiday for me), I’ll include the workouts in today’s post. I worked out four times last week — two cardio sessions and two strength sessions. Not bad for Christmas week and something to improve on next year.
Eating was another story. I gave myself permission to enjoy holiday treats and there were way too many. I continued to eat healthy lunches but followed them up with cookies, chocolates or cake.
One sign of a long-term behavior change gives me hope. We went to our local Outback Steakhouse for Christmas Eve dinner. I ordered the petite filet mignon and my sides were the salad with fat-free dressing and a plain baked sweet potato. I automatically wanted a healthy style steak dinner.
Saturday was face the music day. Mid-September I had a total weight loss of 30.4 pounds since January 5th. Since then I’ve gone off the rails. It all started with an eight day business/blogging trip in shortly after and never got better! My total weight loss now is:
– 20.2 pounds
Yep, I’ve gained over 10 pounds the last quarter of the year. No wonder my shirts are feeling a little tighter and my jeans aren’t loose! Those remaining Christmas cookies are going to my office today.
I don’t have any travel this week or social plans other than a 5k race with Denise from Do You Have That in My Size? on Saturday. My goal is to track every bite every day this week and exercise 5 times.
How did your week towards great health go?
