Weekly Check In - 11/20/2011

Checking in for the week!

Usually I do a vlog but I didn't get a chance to this week. I had a really off week this past week. Didn't feel good the first half of it, felt sluggish which slowed me down during workouts, and also did horrible with my water intake. On top of that it was a VERY stressful week at work which isn't an excuse but it's just the truth.

I weighed in this morning and I was up 4 lbs. I was a little irked but I had a feeling I would gain some this week. After speaking with Amer he told me not to really worry about it, he said its very unlikely that I would gain 4 lbs of fat in one week and I definitely agree with him on that. I am positive that the combination of my stressful work week, poor water intake (yes you can gain weight from not drinking enough water), a few skipped meals, and my lack of sleep all contributed to my gain this week and I am not going to let it get to me. Each day is a new day with new opportunities for improvement.

This weeks goals are to get back on track with my water and get to sleep on time!

What are your goals for the week?

I'm sorry you had such a difficult week. For me, I know things are going downhill when my water intake suffers, that's usually the first sign that something isn't right. I think you have really realistic goals for this week, considering that it's a holiday and all. Let us know how your Thanksgiving turns out, I'm rooting for you to have a successful holiday!

Sorry you had a rough week. Mine was similar, with poor water intake & too much crap food. I'm up about 5 pounds since my marathon (and 5 pounds is a lot when you're barely 5'3"). Let's make a goal to get our water in this week & start flushing out the garbage. M'kay?

I usually do a weekly goal post, then one the next Monday or so to re-visit the goals and mark how I did with each item. It helps with accountability. Water is amazing, it makes you feel soooooo good!
