Last week was spring break at work and I was lucky enough to spend the week in Chicago with a great group of students. While I had a great time on the trip (and was pretty active hiking around the city), I was definitely unfocused regarding my diet. This week happens to include my birthday (which I seem to be celebrating all week long!) so this week isn’t off to the best start either. I am trying to make good food decisions as much as I can, but also cutting myself a break when I enjoy a treat.
Week 10 weigh-in (March 17, 2015):
Pounds lost (since last week): 0
Total pounds lost (since January 5 start date): 7.5
Total number of workouts: 0
Total number of weekend hikes: 2+
I am counting my time in Chicago as 1+ hikes! 🙂 We also did a 4.5 mile hike on Friday after we picked Hank up from being boarded. We returned to McDowell Mountain Regional Park and hiked the “Scenic Trail.” The trail was appropriately named, because after a brief elevation change, the view was amazing! Plus, since it was a weekday, we had the trail to ourselves.
Other health-related items to celebrate in the past week: Thanks to being in Chicago, I logged lots of steps each day, resisted soda and drank lots of water.
Areas of improvement: Getting more activity in – going to the gym after work. Focusing on low carb eating, especially during the work week (make my breakfasts and lunches ahead of time).
