goals for the week. [#6]

my weight on sunday morning:

up 2kg. there's NO WAY i've gained that much weight in the past week. it has to be hormonal, really. not stressing about it for now (or: trying to), kinda waiting for it to pass, really. and drinking more. and watching my portions. and counting points.

how was my week?

i'd totally underestimated the impact that the kids' visit would have on the life the bf and i share. it was just off, and he and i were transformed into a management team, trying to keep a stressful situation under control.

it sounds so silly, really, but i'd kinda thought that a six year old was much less work. but he needs to be fed! (and hates most food!) and put to bed! and dressed! and washed! and entertained! good grace. and that on top of work. i have a much deeper admiration for parents now. after just one week. i practically didn't get a single break all week and cooked every night, and then i had to get myself to the office on saturday and sunday as well (to work on a non-work assignment for that conference thing i mentioned a while back) as well.

since i wrapped that up on sunday, i'm much happier, actually. that'd been bothering me all week as well. in any way, i was hungry all the time, didn't take any breaks during work, only got to the gym twice (had to ditch my third trip because of absolutely having to make that deadline), and i had to ditch my pt appointment as well. shouldn't be surprised that i'm tired now, eh? i was super weirded out by *feeling fat* this week as well, and want to nip that kind of disconnect in the butt. ordered the book that jen of prior fat girl is reading on the blog, "the beck complete diet solution", and will start working through that now.

how did i do on my goals?

  • no bread – failed, big time, again, when i mindlessly got myselfpretzels as snacks TWICE. enough!
  • no booze – done & easy.
  • ice my knees twice every day - managed once most days, got to step that up
  • blog about my 2010 goals - just didn't have time (plus the older kid blocked the computer most nights)
  • blog about my new plan for when and how start maintenance (dito)
nsv of the week:

eating well on our day trip to the zoo and not tiring during said trip.

what will i do this week?

get back to normal! i just want to get my groove back, really, and since sunday morning, i've almost fully recovered. i'll properly count points again (failed to do so on friday and saturday), do my usual workouts, get back to basics. we got friends visiting from thursday on (not sure yet, how long they'll stay, strange nomads that they are), and that'll be lovely.

when will i work out and what will i be doing?
  • monday, pm: gym (2 rounds strength circle, weights, 30 minutes rowing or other cardio, stretching)
  • wednesday, pm: (30 minutes rowing or other cardio; 2 rounds fat burning circle, 30 minutes hypoxy, stretching), followed by no-carb-night
  • saturday, am: gym (2 rounds strength circle, weights, 30 minutes rowing or other cardio, 30 minutes hypoxi, stretching, sauna)
weekly goals:
