Week Three Wrap-Up; Week Four Goals

Week three of the third twelve weeks is in the books.

Traci had to give me a pep talk because I let that dang scale get to me. We also looked at last week’s goals, and I did well on almost all of them, except the increase vegetables part.

My goals for Week Four are as follows:

  1. Increase my veggie intake.
  2. Continue  to move every day, stretch and ice heel, but also add 10 minutes – and only 10 minutes – on the elliptical two days this week.
  3. Try the eggplant recipe I got during week one – eggplants available again
  4. Don’t eat fruit with starches and/or a starchy meal. (Traci emphasized that fruit is healthy and not bad, but combining it with starches can slow down weight loss.)
  5. Don’t eat a lot after dinner. Majority of eating should be done between preworkout (for me, that’s 4:45 a.m.) and 6 p.m.
  6. Do  not weigh until next Wednesday.
  7. Consider next milestone “reward” to be something for someone else. (I’ve already decided that when I hit 55 lbs. lost, I will send $55 to NoFizzCLT, a non-profit that promotes hydration, nutrition and exercise in the Carolinas.)

Wow, those are a lot of goals, huh? Bring them on!

  1. Fabulous, as always, MP!! Please remind me of your daily workout regimen. I started Couch to 5k about 6 weeks ago. On the days I don’t run, I walk on the treadmill 30 minutes. Yesterday, I decided to do 20 minutes on the treadmill and 10 minutes of weights, and I think I’ll keep that up on my “off-running” days. I work out during weekdays, so 5 days / week.

  2. I do some form of aerobic exercise for at least 30 minutes, six days a week. Lately, it’s the recumbent bike as my hip has been bothering me, but getting back on the elliptical a little at a time. Two days a week, after exercise, I also work with a trainer for strength training. Usually with Daniel about an hour and a half.
