Week 2 Down

So this week, I didn't do so great with my calories as I was not required to track them like the week before. I should keep that up! Also, drinking sweet drinks was not a problem as I hardly drink sweet things anyways. I'm also noticing that its getting harder and harder for me to keep up with what I'm eating each day. I'm learning a lot about myself by doing these challenges such as:

1. I often wait until the last minute to do what I'm suppose to do (like drinking 20 oz or more of water right before bed, yeah not a good idea!)

2. I am a rule-follower. I'm very good at just following the rules to get the points and not doing it if its not required.

OK, so here's how I'm going to do better this week:

1. Drink water throughout the day (even though I hate drinking water in the morning!)
2. Do more of my exercise in the morning.
3. Keep track of calories again.
4. More intense exercising

Well, I already messed up for this week on snacks (ice cream doesn't count, right?) because I ate me some ice cream before checking what the challenge was. I just gotta do good the other days of the week. It's great for me to write this all down and reflect on each week. Good luck to all!



  1. If you set your personal goal to stay within your calories you'll get points for it. Just an idea . . . you're doing awesome!

  2. I second what Heather says. I pretty much make that my personal goal every week...I'm like you, obedient to the rules, so it keeps me from snacking at night or eating an extra treat because I have to stay in my calorie goal for a point. I'm sure there is a psychological explanation in there right?
