- Workout 3x- check! I've been using the elliptical lately instead of doing my C25K program on the treadmill- my left knee started to hurt a few weeks ago, so I wanted to try something a little lower impact on my knees- I like it. I can do it longer, and I think I tend to burn more calories. My normal workout routine is 45 min- 1 hour on the elliptical (switching up programs), followed by about 30 minutes of stretching and strength training.
- End the week with a calorie deficit- almost. I ended last week approximately 230 calories over my budget. Which, I think, is pretty fantastic, although I see my LoseIt friends routinely ending their weeks thousands of calories UNDER their budgets- I'm not really sure how they do it. Obviously they're exercising more than I am, and eating a lot less, but I think it would be difficult for me to eat a lot less than I currently am. This week I'm going to go for this goal again.
- Exercise WILLPOWER at Halloween Party/ handing out candy- Check. Sort of. I worked out AND ate really healthy before the Halloween party on Saturday night, but also brought a loaf of cheesy bread that I nommed on a bit. And drank a... few... beers. Handing out candy I ate one Reese's PB cup, but was good otherwise. Although I did have a glass of wine or two...
- Figure out a non-food related reward for getting to my goal weight- I haven't figured this out yet. I've tried new clothes in the past, but it didn't really seem to work. Any suggestions?
Instead of focusing on my total 20 lb goal right now, I'm focusing on getting to -12 lbs. Smaller goals seem more manageable right now.
This week: -.8
