Week One: A Few Missteps!

My goals and progress on the past week’s goals:

  • Try a new vegetable (I chose celery, which I will try via “ants on a log.” Traci said that I could be generous with both the ants and peanut butter at first!) Did it, but only because Traci made me do it at today’s meeting. Not a bad taste, just not digging the crunch!
  • Do two elliptical days at levels two, three and four for 30 minutes above 130 spm. Did it twice, but did it two 15-minutes at a time.
  • Eat one cup of leafy greens four days this week. Didn’t quite hit the mark on this one!
  • Increase bean consumption outside of taco soup. That one either.
  • Exercise six days How about seven?! Ah, the power of a pedometer!
  • Help someone at the City who is just getting started on the program by making an extra portion of something I cook and sharing it with them. MEANT to do this…

I’m not making excuses, but it was a crazy week. Duchess, my cat, was diagnosed with cancer. I increased my gym time by another 30 minutes to get those steps up. I have a huge project at work and have been working a little later. Just not a great week for planning…

Goals for This Week

  • Do two elliptical days at levels two and three  above 130 spm for 30 minutes straight.
  • Eat one cup of leafy greens four days this week
  • Make two different dishes, including quinoa.
  • Help someone at the City who is just getting started on the program by making an extra portion of something I cook and sharing it with them

  1. That’s what I love about an exercise and dietary plan, it’s so easy to just pick it back up the next week when life calms back down! I am sorry to hear about your cat, I hope she is comfortable at the very least.

  2. I’m also sorry to hear about your cat. Hope you are doing O.K. and just take one day at a time on the new goals. Looking forward to reading what you do with quinoa!
