This is Week 3 for "Spring Shed", but I never managed to get to my computer last week to post Week 2.
Oops! Guess I'll have to combine the two weeks into one post...
For Week 2, it was my birthday week & the start of Easter weekend. Needless to say, I didn't do very well with my goals for Week 2.
Week 3 has been better.
Let's take a look:
1. Eat & Prepare Healthier Meals For My Family
Week 2, this was an epic fail! Everyday of that week at least 2 members in my family were ill. We had many nights where soup was dinner, or M. and I just made do with whatever was left in the fridge. Once Friday rolled around, everyone was healthy, but it was my birthday. M. brought home takeout, complete with a birthday cake.
Week 3, found me back on the wagon. We only ate out once this week, as a celebration for Miss O. getting straight "A"'s on her report card. I was pleased when I got home & entered my dinner into MyFitnessPal, that I had made smart decisions, and even stayed within my calorie goal that day.
2. Exercise Consistently At Least 3 Times a Week
I managed to get to the gym twice in Week 2. It was tough with the illness in the house!
Week 3 found me achieving my goal, hitting the gym 3 times, taking 2 classes and fitting 2 runs in. I have decided to throw my hat in the ring for the sprint triathlon in May, even though I only have about 5 weeks to train. Wish me luck!
4. Lose 1 To 2 Pounds A Week
Week 3 brought a .4 of a pound loss. Considering I didn't lose in Week 2, in fact I was up a pound, I'm happy with that loss. Hoping to see the scale move more in the next few weeks!
I've been working on losing weight since September. I'm officially down
21 pounds, and am losing slow & steady. This is a lifestyle change
5. Keep Up With Housework & Organization
Sad to say that in Week 2 & 3, I didn't get very far with this. While I did keep up with laundry, dishes, the daily chores, I haven't had a chance to really try to organize any of our trouble spaces.
So, that's how Week 2 & 3 of Spring Shed went for me.
