Sunday Funday: Week 4 Review

My, how time flies when you’re having fun, right?

Already have about a month in the books.  Amazing.  This week has been a little up and down, but I’m feeling good about everything.  Well – everything except every muscle in my body.  Between running for the first time in forever yesterday morning, and helping my brother move a very big, heavy and awkward desk, I’m in a world of hurt!  Good thing it’s a rest day, because I’m walking around like an old woman.

This week also featured a bunch of really great reading and writing assignments focused on identity — who I am and who I want to be — and why I have the goals that I do.  Toss in some work on the behavioral vs. outcome goals and how best to accomplish them, and my brain got a workout in this week, too.

Also key — we had our small accountability groups set up and had our first online meeting! It’ll be great to get to know some of the ladies on more of an in-depth basis.  I’m hoping this group turns into one that I can count on for daily support.

Onto the wrap-up for the week…

Measurements:
I’m still pretty much status quo, which is a little frustrating, but not all that surprising especially since I’m fighting some hormonal battles.  It’s still just scale and measurements (no more photos yet, thankfully!), and nothing much is budging, but I’m not panicking. Well, I’m not panicking too much, at least.

Workouts:
Training has been outstanding!  I’m not sure how it happened, but I went from reluctantly strength training maybe 1-2x/week to training 5 times a week and feeling great about it. Next week the strength training ramps up again, adding a third set to all the exercises, so that’ll be challenging.  And as far as interval training goes, I’m already exceeding what I’m supposed to be doing and excited about it.


Habits:
I keep getting more and more mindful of eating slowly, despite not always adhering to the practice, and that’s a big part of the battle for me.  A new habit will be introduced tomorrow, but eating slowly will be something that I’ll continue to work on until I feel more comfortable with it and start doing it without having to concentrate so hard.

Habit Log:
Weeks 1-2:  Fish oil and probiotic
Weeks 3-4:  Eating slowly
