Ki's Progress - Week 8

Goal #1 - 20,000 Step 7-Day Average - This week was a tough week.  I did not meet my goals this week.  Long story short, I had a power issue that caused me to have to move my work computers to the living room at the beginning of the week which led to horrible posture for 9 hours a day.  After a few days of horrible pain in my back, I moved everything to the kitchen table which led to horrible pain in my hips instead.  So I didn't get in anywhere near as many steps as I wanted.

At the beginning of the week, I checked the August Fitness Challenge that Beck and I are doing and found that she was destroying me.  I was almost 85,000 steps behind Team Sloth at the beginning of the week.  It became painfully obvious that I have lost this challenge.  I hope I look cute in pig tails.

Despite the loss, I will continue trying to get my daily steps in because challenge or no challenge, I'm becoming more active to improve my own health.

 

Goal #2 - Diet Log - My diet goal for this week was to continue counting my calories and make sure I got at least 1,000 calories in each day as well as reduce my soda intake back down to no more than 2 per day.

I did so well with this goal this week....until Saturday.  Unfortunately, I failed this goal only because I didn't meet my calorie goal on Saturday...the last day of the week!

However, I was able to put down the Dew.  Today was my first full day without any caffeine.  So I'm not going to count this goal as a total failure.  Quitting caffeine is hard.  But I got this.

Goal #3 - 30 Min. Cardio + Bodyweight Routine - My exercise goal this week was to get at least 30 minutes of cardio at least 5 days this week and to complete my bodyweight exercises 4 days this week.

I didn't even attempt this goal this week.  I was able to do my exercises 1 day.  But when my back flares up, I baby it and try to let it heal.  So I did not do my regular exercising this week so that my back had a chance to calm down.  I'm counting this goal as a write off, not a failure.

Cardio

  • Monday - Rockin' Body - Booty Time - 30 min. Cardio

Goal #4 - 4 bottles of water per day - I'm still struggling with the water goal.  I got 4 bottles of water in on 4 days this week.  This is an improvement from last week.  I think this will be a super easy goal now that I'm not drinking soda.

Goal #5 - 7 hours of sleep per night - I did much better this week on my sleep goal on average.  However, I did have one night that I got sick which caused insomnia for the rest of the night.  That was Tuesday night.  I slept for 30 minutes and was up the rest of the night but I did get a nap in later that day.

My tracker didn't record my sleep for Friday, I'm not sure why that happened but I did sleep Friday night for right around 7 hours.  I did better, but I need to make 7 hours and every night thing.

What's Next?

I'm not changing my goals too much this week as I didn't really meet them.

Goal #1 - My step goal is staying at a 7-day average of 20,000 steps.

Goal #2 - I will focus on my calorie counts this week to make sure I do not have another high calorie deficit.  While some deficit is good, I need to eat enough to maintain my activity level.  I will also try to stick to no caffeine.

Goal #3 - My exercise goal for this week is to complete at least 30 consecutive minutes of cardio at least 5 times this week and to complete the bodyweight exercises 4 times this week continuing to improve my repetitions, the same as last week.

Goal #4 - Again, I will continue trying to get 4 bottles of water in per day.

Goal #5 - I will also continue trying to get at least 7 hours of sleep per night.  This is a really hard goal for me to accomplish but I will get there.  This week I will aim to be in bed before midnight each night.
