Healthy Me Progress Report

For the week of February 12-18, 2018.

My goals were:
1. Drink 32 oz of water a day.
2. Walk 14 miles.
3. Watch my calorie intake.

The results:
1. I only hit 32 oz on one day. The weekly goal was 224 oz and I drank 134 oz.
2. I walked 9.81 miles. Less than my goal but more than last week. ☆
3. My average daily calories was 929. The highest day was Friday with 1162.

Weigh in:
Feb. 12: 178.6
Feb. 20: 177.2
Loss/gain: -1.4
Year status: +1

My thoughts:
I finished my prescription so we are seeing the scale start to go down. Everything else looks pretty normal for me. I need to step it up before I'm going to see any real progress.  My eating is fine... need more exercise.

Goals for February 19-25:
*I'm still not holding myself to these too much, but it doesn't hurt to try.

1. 30 day squat challenge, week 1.
2. I need to walk 20 miles to be on track for the month. (Just do whatcha can.)

One good thing

You can always get one good thing done. And then that one good thing will lead to another.
If you attempt to make the entire journey in a single leap, you’ll be disappointed and quite possibly injured. Yet taking one step is easy, accessible, and makes the next step even easier.
Nobody can summon, all at once, the dedication necessary for a massive undertaking. However, anybody can be dedicated enough to make one little effort.
One effort at a time is really all it ever takes. You just have to make one effort, and then another, and another, until the job is done.
You can do that, and you can do it in this instant. There’s no need to fret or procrastinate, to worry, make excuses, or avoid the effort.
It’s a whole lot easier to just go ahead and do it. Now is when you can.

Progress Report

For February 5-11, 2018.

My goals were:
1. Track everything.
2. Walk 14 miles.
3. 32 oz water a day.

The results:
1. I tracked it all...the good,  the bad, the ugly.
2. I only walked 6.88 miles.
3. I only reached 32 oz on one day.

Weigh in:
Feb 5: 177.2
Feb. 12: 178.6
Loss/gain: +1.4
Year status: +2.4

My thoughts:
The meds I'm on are known to cause weight gain. After this prescription is done,  it should go back down. I'm not really worried about that right now.  I could put in a little more effort to walk though.

Goals for February 12-18, 2018:
*All fitness goals are put on hold until I get some medical things figured out.

But.... just to give me a focus:

1. Drink 32 oz water a day.
2. Walk 14 miles.
3. Watch calorie intake.
