I hope you have a good day! Mine started too early again! Typical for Monday 🙂 I am working from Munich today as I have a meeting with a friend. We are meeting from time to time, talking about our progress regarding the dissertation and rant about our ups and downs. Our own little support group 😉
But fist today I am here for an update about my New Body Makeover Challenge. I am seven weeks into my new year’s goals which centers around my half marathon training. Last week I decided to start over. Let’s see what happened in week 7…
New Body Makeover Challenge – Week 7
Let’s start with the good: I achieved almost all my goals. I made a great meal plan but realized that with all the workouts I do I didn’t get enough food. So I started to pick and nibble on snacks in between meals which was a door-opener for unconscious snacking. BUMMER! I need to work on this next week! But I was sore almost all week and had much fun with my mixed workout regime.
But let’s look at the chart now:
Every week you have 21 meals (without snacks) to make a healthy food choice. For every healthy food choice you may color one smiley. So you have 21 smileys to color at max. My food was healthy most of the time. A Burger was planned but I we came home so late on Friday that we didn’t feel we could cook anymore. So we settled for Pizza. And then there was a piece of cake yesterday. Totally worth yesterday so not great for my belly today! I need to remember that CHEATING IS SO NOT WORTH IT! I can still color 17 smilies which is fair enough. The other thing I still need to work on is snacking. I am snacking way too much in between. All these little nibbles.
Let’s evaluate the workout part…
For every day you worked out there’s also a smiley to color. I am super happy with my workout regime. I can color 5 smileys for exercising. Soreness was my proud companion last week! And I love my workout chart 🙂
My lessons learned from week #7
- I need to work on my meal planning skills. I still tend to plan not enough food
- I have to stick to a meal plan otherwise I start to snack too much
- Cake is not my friend!!!!
Goals for week #8
- Working on my meal plan for Mon-Wed and sticking to it!
- Enjoying my London trip guilt free
- Not forgetting to pack my belly medicine 😉
But that’s enough plan making for now. I am going to sit down and make a three-day meal plan for me. Let’s see how I can stick to it.
Today I already had a breakfast yoghurt bowl and still have chicken & broccoli, veggie juice and veggie enchiladas waiting for me! Yummy!
I am again linking up with my fellow list maker Meghan. She always does such a great job with her lists.
Have a great start to the week lovelies!
