Weight Loss Journey - Ki's Progress
Well, October is almost over. That's the highlight of my week.
I completely failed the Killer Cardio Challenge. For a few various reasons. I'm not much caring about it right now. I have a doctor's appointment on November 14th and will resume exercises after that appointment.
At that point, I'll worry about starting the challenge over and doing the whole failure thing.
I didn't do well on activity level, but I did do great on sleep! The sloth should be proud.
I did pretty well on tracking consumption as well for the most part. Except I didn't track water intake much. Oops. What can I say?
The week after the flu and I had to return to work and catch up on a week's worth of work on top of everything I needed to catch up on at home.
I'm finally wrapping that up and getting back on track with things. Just in time too because Beck started a new challenge today so I need to get on the ball.
Last Week's Stats - 10/29/2018
Without doing my workouts or anything this week, I came in almost 1,000 steps short of what I did last week. I did have 112 active minutes because I was active the first half of the week before the weather change threw my back out.
If it weren't for the 3 workouts I did at the beginning of the week, I wouldn't have had any. So I'm at least glad I did those.
Goal #1 - Diet Log - My diet goal for this week was to continue tracking and to keep sodium below 2,700. That will align with the goals set forth by MyFitnessPal. I apparently didn't do well with tracking the week before last. I'm a little confused at the moment because I lost a week somewhere and didn't track a week's consumption. I have this week, but not last week. I'm not real sure how that happened.
I did pretty well with the goals this week, in fact, sodium intake was below 2,700 on all but 1 day. I went over 3,500 on Sunday. Oops! I'm going to keep this goal the same for now. I'm going to add just a little bit to this goal. I've eaten like crap the past few weeks. Halloween candy and eating out mixed with a lack of regular exercise and the scale is moving in the wrong direction. So no more candy and no more eating out until I get my weight back down by 5 pounds.
Goal #2 - 30 Min. Cardio / 7 days - My exercise goal was to get at least 30 minutes of cardio in every single day. I did not meet this goal. Therefore, I will keep this goal the same going forward until that becomes a habit.
Goal #3 - 64 ounces of water per day tracked - I haven't done well with tracking water intake so far. I created a new way for me to track it going forward so I expect this to get better in the coming weeks. So, this goal also will stay the same this week. I need to make this a habit and stick to it.
Goal #4 - 6 hours of sleep per night - My sleep goal was to get 6 hours or more of sleep each night. I totally rocked this goal!!! Celebrating small successes here, don't judge. Let's keep in mind that I had the flu for a week and then wound up bed ridden for half a week do to my back injury. Sleeping hasn't been hard lately but at least it's one goal I nailed.
Overall, my week was alright. I was pretty much on track all week as far as sleep and diet were concerned. Exercise is put on hold for right now so I'm going to forgive myself for it and move on.
I'll be back this time next week to let you know if I met these goals of mine this week.
