So, if you have been following along, you may remember that I set the following goal for myself last week:
Katie’s Goal for this week: Eat something in addition to the caramel skim latte (CSL) for breakfast.
I was actually suprised at how well it went. I was afraid that adding calories at the begining of the day would make it harder for me to stay on track for total calories throughout the day. NOPE! It actually helped! Eating a little bit more for breakfast, help me get to lunch and not be starving, so ate less at lunch. Then, because I didn’t overeat at lunch, I would be hungry for my afternoon snack, which would then get me through my workout and to dinner – again not starving! Eat a normal dinner, without my normal 2nds, and even have room for some dessert! Awesome. I ate dessert every night and still lost 2 pounds this week. By far, a banana is the easiest thing to add to my morning latte, but I am hoping to further expand my breakfast as I continue to work on this goal.
Now, week 2!
My goal for this week is to get a fitness assessment at the YMCA.
The YMCA is really nice, they will do a full fitness assessment, including measurments, body fat/muscle analysis and a fitness eval, all for free! The problem is I have always been too embarassed to do it. . . it’s hard to get on a scale in front of another person, no matter what your size or weight! But, I have always wanted to do it and thought it would be a good goal to do this week! Many thanks to Tina from Carrots’N’Cake for inspiring me to do this via her own ‘Lose the Dough’ challenge.
My plan will be to do it this week and then in about a month (begining of April) repeat it. I think that will be good motivation to up my workout game!
Have you ever done a fitness assessment?
