Let's talk progress, points and one-for-one!!
Total Weight Lost: 2 pounds
Total Inches Lost: 3.5 inches
I had a chance to sit down with the hubs to discuss my proposed point reward system. Besides talking numbers in terms of weight lost or inches lost, the only other numbers I'm interested in are the ones that get me something I really want as a reward (besides the satisfaction of meeting my goals!) For me, this means CASH money.
Each day I collect points for doing something toward my goal:
At the end of each week I tally up the points, and at the end of the month I tally up those. I can turn in my points at any time, but in order to get the bigger amounts I have to save my points.
Did somebody say KA-CHING?! Yeah, I want that cash, and it has so far been super motivating.
I'm proud of these choices:
Grocery Shopping: I didn't buy CHEESE OR BUTTER! And since Jerry is away this week, I went ahead and loaded up on my modified vegetarian kinds of foods. This is a HUGE win for me!
Tuesday Morning: After a very rough night with Zion (only 4ish hours of sleep) I still headed out the door determined not to miss a free Pilates class that my Mops group was hosting!
I'd like to work more on:
Determining the difference between when I am thirsty or hungry.
Getting more consistent sleep .
Cutting down to 1 cup of coffee a day.
I totally cheated when:
I was surprised by how sad I got when Jerry left for his business trip this week, and proceeded to justify eating a giant peanut-butter-chocolate chip milkshake to make myself feel better. (I justified this by: hey, this ice cream needs to get out of our house…and I don't want to waste it!)
My One-For-One this week will be: Yogurt/Applesauce/Herbs for Fats/Oils/Butter, as much as I'm able to substitute that is my goal!
How did you do this week? I'd love to follow your success! Feel free to link up below!
