Well, here are the thoughts for week one...
I tracked all week! Everything went into MyFitnessPal so that I was feeling accountable for what I was eating, even when I didn't want to be. Most of the time (80%) I was making good choices.
I finished my research and decided to commit - I'm buying a Garmin Forerunner 15 (in small/purple, if you want the full details...). It has an activity tracker that will remind me to move (200 steps every hour) and has all of the features I want for a running watch. Only downside is that it doesn't connect thru Bluetooth or a similar way to my phone, so I have to sync via computer then to the app on my phone. But I should be able to sync with MyFitnessPal, which is cool. It is supposed to have a sleep tracker too, but seeing as how we aren't really sleeping right now, thanks to the little one, that probably won't be very useful right away.
I didn't get much exercise. Partly because of my schedule, partly because of the cold, and partly because I was under the weather a bit the end of the week. I did get some movement in, but no runs.
Unfortunately, the FR15 is back-ordered. Apparently everyone else wants one, too....
Weight change: - 1 lb.
Notice that the weight change gets it's own category. That's because I'm hoping it's a consequence of the changes I'm making to feel better, not the only outcome that I want to measure. Let's keep it real here, shall we? What I really want is to have more energy and have my clothes fit better. The number on the scale is a bonus.
This week's goals:
One run, inside or out. More is bonus.
Order FR15 so that it eventually gets here.
Listen to #Moderation365 webcast, hopefully on Monday, but if not, on Tuesday.
Get my hair cut and feel pretty.
