Week 3: Accountability Recap and Weekend Ahead

Posted Sep 30 2011 12:00am

This is my way of holding myself accountable for my fitness goals and also tracking my progress.  To catch up, see week 1 and week 2 .

Weighty Matters:

  • Starting BMI: 25.2
  • Today’s BMI: 25.0 (no change; down 1.4 pounds total)
  • Goal BMI: 24.0
Sometimes no change is success in itself.  Losing weight isn’t a primary goal, and I don’t put a lot of effort into it.  This week was full of parties and other social gatherings (aka football watching and french fries).  I’m learning how to only indulge in things that I really want and not fall victim to the proximity trap.  The worst feeling is when I eat something that I know isn’t good for me, and realize it didn’t even taste good.

Activity goals:

  • Run 4x week – SUCCESS!  I have started training for a 15K on December 3 with plans for a half marathon in March.  My weekly mileage is only going to go up.  See my training plan here .
  • Resistance 2x week – UH OH! I only managed one of these two sessions this week.  As mentioned in my fitness truths , resistance training is not my forte.  I can do better.
  • Here are the details:

Weekend Ahead:
Tonight my husband will be out, and I plan on relaxing at home taking full advantage of my rest day.  I see a chick flick or some SoapNet TV in my future.  Classic 90210 or Gilmore Girls? Yes please!  I wonder what movies are free On Demand this week… Saturday is the usual – long run (5 miles), laundry, cleaning, errandry.  We have a housewarming party to attend in the evening.  A former college roommate of mine just bought a row house on Capitol Hill.  I can’t wait to see it!  And then it’s Football Sunday.  Have I mentioned how much I love NFL season?  Heading over to my mom’s house for Sunday dinner.  My sister will be there too!  I’m so lucky my family is nearby.
Did you meet your weekly goals?  Do you have any fun weekend plans? Please share!
