Why Am I Doing This: When dieting, binging and eating distress has become a significant part of your existence, any attempts to change your habits may still be laced with unhealthy thought patterns. To make sure that I am not taken over by calorie counts, exercise minutes or weigh ins, I am setting small weekly goals under four headings: Fitness, Food, Motivation and Wellness.
How Do I Keep Track: I keep a small note at the end of each day on how I felt I did in each category and also write a quick summary on a Sunday night of what I need to work on (e.g. drink more water, make time to meditate, etc.)
Review of Last Week: The week started off well and on track. Thursday, we received some terrible news and I’ve been completely unconcerned with exercising and food choices since then. I make no apologies. Time to start again this week.
Monday: Upper and lower body strength
Tuesday: Run and core strength
Wednesday: Walk and stretch
Thursday: Walk and stretch
Friday: Run and core strength
Sunday: Run and lower body strength
Average 1800-2000 cal/day
6-8 cups water/day
Deal with stressful situations by talking it out rather than eating though it
Write in journal every night
Study for exams
Meditate 60 mins/week
Meds and vitamins on time
All of the hugs for everyone
It has been a tough week and with exams looming, I don’t see it getting any easier. To the next week!
