Happy Friday! I’m skipping my normal Five on Friday link up this morning to instead let you know how I did on my #4weeksfit goals, and give you an update on where I’m at, weight loss wise.
So what were my goals? Let me remind you:
- 10,500 steps every day.
- Do a workout a minimum of 3 times a week.
- Track EVERYTHING I eat, even the bad stuff.
- Give up all sweets that I don’t make myself.
So how did I do?
10,500 steps every day – CHECK.
(Since May technically ends tomorrow, it’s still missing two days…but I’m confident it’ll happen.) If I’m being honest…this was probably my easiest goal. I’ve been hitting my steps pretty consistently for months, and it was nice to have an easy goal as my first one. Next month, I’ll be upping it to 11,000!
Do a workout a minimum of 3 times a week. – CHECK.
I definitely made this part of my routine – thank goodness for the gym at work! I went 3-5 times a week, every week. I mostly walked on the treadmill at a high incline, but there were a few days I forgot my sneakers and took a walk outside instead. I’m really proud that I’ve made this a habit, and I really hope I can keep it going. I’m hoping to add in some different workouts next month, like some videos or Wii workouts, in addition to swimming at the pool when I can.
Track EVERYTHING I eat, even the bad stuff. – CHECK.
As always, I tracked in WW, but I love seeing everyone else’s completed days in MFP and I was determined to have mine up there as well. I kept up with my double tracking, and I love that WW and MFP give me different perspectives on what I’m eating.
Give up all sweets that I don’t make myself. – FAIL.
I kind of knew this one would be tough going in. I have a MAJOR sweet tooth, and it’s hard to limit. When I made sweets, I ate too much of them, but when it was too much to make sweets, I just got them elsewhere. It’s safe to say I won’t be trying this particular goal again, just trying to limit my sweets in a different way.
So where’s my weight stand after all this? Well, I weigh in tomorrow so I don’t know where I’m currently at, but as of last week I was 194 pounds. That’s down one pound. I could choose to look at it as only one pound…but instead I’m going to celebrate it. It’s one less pound than before, and as long as I don’t let it come back, I consider that a success.
Now to think up goals for June! Do you have any?
