10 in 2010 ~ Week 3

Finished the 2nd week of the 10 in 2010 challenge and am starting Week 3!  This week was somewhat better than last, though not as good as I had hoped.  I felt like I focused on it more, but the scale didn't really show it.  I weighed in at WW this morning and was down .6 lbs!  Yay for a loss, but at this rate it will take me years to get to my goal instead of months!  I plan to try even harder to stay on track and follow all of my plans this week.

Here's how I did this week:

Weigh in at WW:  I was late, but weighed in and stayed for the rest of the meeting.
Track all food:  I tracked all of the weekdays - pretty good!
3 45-min exercise sessions:  2 DVD workouts and 1 Wii Fit Plus workout, though all were only 20-30 minutes each.
Bed by 11pm on weeknights:  Um, no.  Missed it by a lot!
Drink 3 glasses water per day:  I did drink water every day, but only 2 glasses a day.
Plan meals each week:  Planned dinners and they went well.

This week I need to track my food on the weekend too.  I want to get my workouts in, but make sure that I do at least 45 minutes each time.  I have GOT to get to bed earlier - I truly believe that makes a difference.  And I WILL do better with my water-drinking!  I'm working on planning dinners now for the week, but I also need to plan breakfast and lunch to make sure that I eat enough filling foods (a WW term) in my meals so that I'm satisfied.

Overall, not a bad week, but I know that I can do better.  How was your week?  Did you follow your plans?  Have you tried anything new that really worked well?  Did you have any struggles?

Have a healthy weekend!

  1. I thought it was a great meeting today on filling foods. My leader took a 2x2in brownie worth 5 points and showed what you could have instead with filling foods. It was 1 cup baby carrots, 2 cups cherry tomatoes, 17 pretzels, 1 WW yogurt, and 1 WW brownie (hers was worth one point). Amazing and eye opening!

  2. Getting to bed earlier is probably the hardest thing for me. Congrats on a successful week. Yes, I stuck to my plan, but also a yes that I had struggles... It's an ongoing battle.

  3. Well done on the loss! I do WW too (online) and find it useful in controlling my portions. My goal this week is to turn the electronics off at least an hour before bed, to settle down and get a good night's sleep. Keep up the good work!!
