I completed my eighth week of the Hot 100 Challenge! Here is my update:
1.Lose an additional 12 pounds by December 24, 2010.
(I weigh in later next week, so nothing new to report here.)
2.Keep up my biking (at least 45 miles a week) AND include more walking (4 times a week at least 2 miles at a time) outdoors until the weather forces me inside.
(This was my worst week of exercise since I started this journey. Winter set in to Minnesota when I came back from Spain. So, bad weather, some jet lag, and not really planning well for alternative exercise set me back for most of the week. I did do about 4 miles of biking in the Netherlands on my way back from Spain. I walked on black Friday about 2 miles, and today, too. My plan for next week is to get out the exercise cycle (we have one in our basement now) and start walking outdoors now that the severe cold is lifting).
3.Take care of myself each day by eating less, moving more,
and eating plenty of fruits and veggies.
(Yes. I did well here. Even having a big salad both before Thanksgiving dinner
and before Happy Hour on Black Friday).
4.Have more 1200 days in a week than 1500-calorie days.
(Well, I made this goal on 4 out of seven days and with
Thanksgiving, I would say this was a WIN!!)
5.Drink more water. At least two liters per day.
