Weight Loss Journey - Ki's Progress
I'm doing great with my redemption from the Killer Cardio Challenge. I've been active for at least 30 minutes every single day so far this month.
I have to admit, I feel really really good about it. It's a great achievement for me to be active 11 days in a row. It's super hard for me to be that consistent.
Now I'm going to have to use that good feeling to stay motivated and keep it going. I need to redeem myself from that challenge.
But not only that, I need to stay active for my own health and well being.
So...to keep that spirit, this week I'm going to aim for 40 active minutes instead of 30.
Now let's see how I did with my other goals.
Last Week's Stats - 11/12/2018
My numbers are all up this week again, even more than last week! I took a whopping 20,385 more steps than last week with a total of 52,739 steps. I travelled 8.51 miles more than last week for a total of 22.02 miles. I was 165 minutes more active this week with 298 active minutes. Like last week, I exercised 3 times...plus 4. I exercised all 7 days! I lost 3.1 pounds since last week also. It would've been more had I not had my cheat days. I need to reign those in big time. I love this week's stats! I need to do better though.
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 did a great job of tracking this week! Super proud of that. I mostly did well with my diet goals this week. There is one day that I absolutely blew the entire week and that was Saturday again. We were out and about all day and I didn't pay attention to the salt and calorie consumption for the day until it was too late. Shame on me!
I had two bad days this week, one of which was super bad. I'm going to keep the goal of keeping my calories and sodium below the recommendations from MyFitnessPal. So roughly 1,700 calories and 2,300 mg of sodium. I'm also going to keep the goal of only one mountain dew per day, I think that will help me start controlling the sugar cravings.
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. I did do a much better job of it this week and got very close each day, but not quite there so I will keep trying.
Goal #3 - 64 ounces of water per day tracked - My daily average for water intake last week was 43 ounces which was 2 ounces more than last week. So I improved, but not by much. So, I will keep my goal for water consumption to increase my daily average to at least 50 ounces. New habits are hard so we're doing a slow roll here.
Goal #4 - 6 hours of sleep per night - My sleep goal was to get 6 hours or more of sleep each night. I did okay on this goal. I had a few nights where I didn't quite get the desired 6 hours. I didn't meet my goal this week so we'll just try again next week.
Overall, my week was really great. I active all week. I need to focus on my sleep and diet again and get those back in check.
I'll be back this time next week to let you know if I met these goals of mine this week.
