Write it down
Optimal Health Plan with Rumble Strips this is a reminder of my weekly goals...
1) FOOD, all I am "counting" is calories (sorry to those who think it isn't about the calories)
-Fat fast till 4:30 on down & moderate days (all calories from fat)
--2 days of 550 calories or less,
--2 days of 1500 calories or less yesterday was 765
--4 days of thoughtful eating to hunger
-Weigh and Measure 1x/week (Saturdays) Track in journal or MFP. weight and waist are coming down, slower than I would like and not yet to where I was with the 3:2:2 before I strayed for a few weeks, but close.
-Track food every evening (check food rumble strips) DONE
Working on N.E.A.T....for now, eventually add in Tabata
-10,000 steps a day-yesterday was 5,706
---30 minutes on treadmill every day-nope
---computer/phone time at home less than 1 hour
-10 flights of stairs yesterday was 2
---use upstairs bathroom
---carry fewer grocery bags at a time
--to get to where I don't need an alarm to wake up (about 7.5 hours of actual sleep)
--To bed by 10, up at 6:30 every day nope, yesterday 81% efficiency
--I find I am not having trouble with this as long as I stick to the 3:2:2 plan (which I did very well with for 2.5 months, so back to it!) so far so good on this front,
--Use journal to evaluate daily. here I am!
--Re-evaluate weekly to be sure I have not aimed too high or too low. today is the re-evaluate...
This week went really well, I had 2 low days that actually came in under my 560. I had 2 moderate days that came in well under 1,500. Friday, today, and tomorrow are my up days this week. So the food plan stays unchanged.
I am doing pretty well with tracking, only Friday was untracked.
I have not gotten back on the treadmill, yet. Today is expected to be a beautiful day and I plan to spend it outside in the garden. I mowed yesterday, so I can spend today actually gardening, so no treadmill today either. Anyway, my average daily steps are about 5,650, adding the treadmill will add another 2,000. So my goal for this week is 8,000 steps a day, plus the 10 flights of steps.
Sleep, why do I resist? I need to get into bed by 10pm, so I need to walk away from the living room by 9:30 at the latest, really 9 would be better as it would give me an hour away from the tv. So that is my plan this week.
I have no problems with #'s 5 & 6 this week.
