Weekly Goals - late again but still in!

Operation Skinny Jeans

Last week's goals:
To be honest, I just had to look them up now to see if I even set goals last week.  You can guess how well I stuck to them then!  :)  Actually, I didn't do too bad...

1. I'm not positive what my water intake has been because I switch water bottles all day, 2YO drinks out of them, and I just forget to drink. My goal is to aim for at least 2 full bottles of water a day and to make a conscious effor to keep track. I didn't do this one.  I'm still having a really hard time keeping track of my water.  Overall, I drink quite a bit and I don't drink much other than water, so I'm going to stop stressing about this one for a whole.
2. Skip 1 day of nighttime snacking this week. Skip 2 the next, and so on.   Done!  I actually skipped a couple nights of nighttime snacking with the help of a glass of Light Vanilla Soy Milk!
3. Complete Week 4 of C25K - finally!  Done!  I wrote about it here, but I managed to get over that hump, now I'm wondering why the heck each day of Week 5 is different instead of the same routine three days in a row?  Also, I may have run 8 min straight, but I doubt I made it 3/4 of a mile each time.  Guess I'm still a bit closer to "couch."

Goals for this week:
  1. It is going to be HOT this week and we have no a/c until we replace our 20-year-old unit.  So, my main goal will be to get my booty active regardless of the heat.  Easier said than done because my plan was to get a run in today and that never happened...
  2. Plan some meals for home like I did for the cabin.  I've been having trouble coming up with meals now that we're home.  Largely due to the fact that I don't have help with the kids, desperately need to go shopping, and can never plan on what time Hubby will be home.  It needs to be done, though, or I'm really going to have a hard time.

Prime example of what happens when I have no plans or groceries. I was dying for a sandwich or salad because of the heat, but didn't have any lettuce so I got this skimpy thing. Although, I did get a decent amount of veggie chips for the serving size, so that made me happy. Too bad I don't think I can get these at Sam's Club anymore...

Another prime example of what no groceries or creativity gets you. We had leftover veggies (yum) with a Hormel Meatloaf (not too bad). I need to get shopping and get planning - we were eating way better than this last week!

Did I mention I'm staying strong in ONEderland!?! Yep.

  1. Aw, gurl, I know how hard it is to meal plan! I usually end up stopping at the grocery store daily to pick up things for dinner. I know they all say to plan for a week, but I NEVER feel like cooking what I plan. It's always what I'm in the mood for that day that determines dinner. Have you looked into We used that for a while and LOVED it, plus they have different diets to choose from.


I LOVE comments and, don't worry, there are no words to squint at and verify on this blog!! :) So, have at it!
