It’s that time again…Weekly Check In’s with the Sisterhood. Wow! Has a week gone by already?! Time is moving too fast! I need to step up my game. Ha!

Here’s my check in/recap for this week. Overall, it wasn’t too bad.  Here’s the low down…..

  1. Wednesday through Tuesday I was hit pretty hard this week with the nasty cold leading up to bronchitis so my meals were far and few inbetween. However, when I did eat it was my normal standard healthy meals.
  2. Wednesday through Tuesday Again, I was sick so even though hydrating was even more important than ever, well, I actually drank less. Oops
  3. Wednesday through Tuesday I did get up and move – well, for part of the week!! The 5k training this week was going really well (with increased time and distance) but I didnt get any of  Gina’s Winter Shape Up 2011 program that I’m following on the cross-training days of the 5k training. With going into bronchitis, I stopped all workouts until I get off the antibiotics. I am doing some yoga here and there tho just to stretch it out and stay somewhat active. 
  4. Weigh In….No Loss. No Gain. That’s okay with me.

Here’s my check in/recap for this week. Overall, it wasn’t too bad.  Here’s the low down…..

  1. Wednesday through Tuesday I did consume my five servings of fruits and vegetables. I also logged my food every day in my “handy dandy notebook” like a good little girl. I seem to be progressing well although i’m just clearning the five. i’d like to include some more veggies. we’ll see what i can do about that.
  2. Wednesday through Tuesday I did consume my eight glasses of water. it’s starting to get a lot easier now versus having to remember and make myself drink it all.
  3. Wednesday through Tuesday I did get up and move!! The 5k training this week week is going really well as is Gina’s Winter Shape Up 2011 program that I’m following on the cross-training days of the 5k training.

  3. Wednesday through Tuesday I did get up and move!! It might not have been a standard exercise program every day – but running around with a toddler does count, right? I also started my 5k training this week. I am getting there..slowly but surely. Taking it day by day.
  4. Weigh In….I lost three pounds this week. I don’t know how I did it but I did. Go me!!!

Not too shabby for just starting out but certainly room for improvement…I give this week’s grade a B.

  2. Wednesday through Tuesday I did consume my eight glasses of water. it’s starting to get a lot easier now versus having to remember and make myself drink it all.
  3. Wednesday through Tuesday I did not get-up-and-move (ie exercise) everu day for the minimum 30 minutes. I did, however, make sure to get up every two hours at the office to walk around for a minute (back health)…also when doing certain tasks like phone calls and scanning, I do some squats, lunges, pushups (on the wall). This is an improvement from last week so i’m moving upward. I am still having difficulty finding motivation to exercise at home tho..

Weigh In….Well, I’m holding steady and maintaining my weight from my beginning weight. That’s to be expected since i’m not exercising much. I know that once I start moving, since my diet is pretty much in check, it’ll start to fall right off. But again, i’m not in this challenge to loose…i’m in it for reestablishing healthy habits for healthy living. Loosing weight would just be an added bonus.

Okay, so overall, I am two for three. Not too shabby for just starting out but certainly room for improvement…mostly in the movement area. And let’s face it, the movement area is one of the most important ones.   I give this week’s grade a B-.

We all know I was a litle late in the game starting the challenge..oh, by four days or so. That’s okay because starting it at any time is better than not starting it at all, right?  The Sisterhood did their check-in on Wednesday and well, since I didnt start til Monday, well, you know….

I would not really consider this a check-in but more of a follow-up at the end of the week for how I did on my formentioned fitness goals. Overall, it wasn’t too bad.  Here’s the low down…..

  1. Monday through Friday (Yes, Im including today because I planned my meals and plan to stick to it. If it changes, I will revise this post tonight before bed) I did consume my five servings of fruits and vegetables. I also logged my food every day in my “handy dandy notebook” like a good little girl.
  2. Monday through Friday (same applies here for revisions) I did consume my eight glasses of water.
  3. Monday through Friday (same applies here for revisions as the day isnt over yet and I could get it in still) I did not get-up-and-move (ie exercise).

Okay, so overall, I am two for three. Not too shabby for just starting out but certainly room for improvement…mostly in the movement area. And let’s face it, the movement area is one of the most important ones.   I give this week’s grade a C.
