1. Long-term: Dramatically decrease the amount of sugar I consume
Short-term: Break the habit by cutting out all added sugar for 2 weeks
How’d I do on week 4? Check! It’s somewhat possible that I consumed teeny amounts of sugar when I ate out with my parents, but I tried to make choices that would be least likely to have added sugar. Though, the pizza dough could have had some honey or something. Probably not, but I’m not that concerned either way.
2. Long-term: Reach my goal weight by the time school is out (mid-June)
Short-term: Follow Weight Watchers every single day, when possible
How’d I do on week 4? I lost 0 pounds. Not a surprise. I didn’t track my food on Weight Watchers Friday or Saturday and I definitely ate more than I needed a few days this week (stress/boredom/procrastination eating). My weight loss is still at 8.4lbs for 4 weeks, so I’m not that concerned. I’m aiming for a 1.6 pound weight loss this next week to bring my total up to 10 pounds!
3. Long-term: Stay on top of my schoolwork
Short-term: Spend my class breaks in the library, being uber productive
How’d I do on week 4? With all of the midterms and papers I’ve had, it hasn’t been hard to find stuff to do. I’ve been keeping up with my work pretty well! Though, I’d be lying if I told you that I wasn’t counting down the weeks until spring break (8).
4. Long-term: Increase my fitness level: both cardiovascular and muscular strength and endurance
Short-term: Work out for at least five hours per week (not including biking/walking to campus) and incorporate a variety of workouts
How’d I do on week 4? I’ve been keeping up with my ellipticalling, strength training, and cardio intervals. Except now my back is tweaked. UGH. This better go away soon. So annoying.
5. Long-term: Complete my 28 random acts of kindness and incorporate that mindset into my everyday life
Short-term: Go out of my way to do something nice whenever I see an opportunity
How’d I do on week 4? No picture, but I put some change into an expired meter. I’m hoping this helped the person avoid an expensive parking ticket!
