10-pound Challenge Week 1

I didn't start off the 10-pound challenge as strong as I hoped I would. I didn't lose any weight...but I didn't gain any either.

I did exercise 5 days this week, so that was good.  Wednesday and Friday were my off days because I wasn't feeling too great.  I mainly did the 30-Day Shred and a little jogging.  It was cold and rainy most of the week so it was hard to get motivated to get outside and jog.

I didn't do as well with my eating.  My friend moved to Nashville this weekend, so she came over Monday night to hang out for a little while and we decided to go get ice cream.  Horrible decision, I know, but ice cream is kind of our thing. We just had to go one last time!  I felt like I spent the rest of the week making up for that decision.  I drank two Diet Cokes two days this week, but every other day I just drank one.  I'm really working on that.  But I did drink at least six glasses of water every day :)

I definitely didn't do as well as I had hoped, but it wasn't a TERRIBLE start.  I know what mistakes I made and what I need to correct this week.

My goals for this week are to continue drinking six glasses of water a day, only ONE Diet Coke a day, exercise five days again, and to eat fruit with my sandwich at lunch instead of Chex Mix [I do love my Chex Mix though!]

  1. It sounds like you are doing pretty well even if you had ice cream (I mean it's not like you had a huge meal out!). I've been doing this challenge too. I'm not "officially" weighing in until tomorrow and I lost 3lbs last week, so we'll see how this week goes!
