Week Four Update

I'm a little late this week, but better late than never, right? Been a very busy weekend! Here is a recap of how I did this week relative to my goals.

1. I will make every workout count

Felt great this week! Really worked hard in every workout. I finished the TT 2K5 program and next week I plan on starting TT 2K9. (2K5 and 2K9 just refer to the year Craig Ballantyne created that particular Turbulence Training program.) TT 2K9 uses kettlebells so I will get to use my new toy!

2. I will drink less diet soda
Still drinking too much once again. Got a little crazy near the end of the week. Time to put a stop to it! Going to be cracking down on this goal a little more diligently from now on.

3. I will weigh myself ONLY once per week

Did great this week. I have no idea what I weigh right now. Feeling OK about that because I went shopping yesterday and bought a pair of size 4 pants that fit great, so I know I'm not gaining a lot of weight.

4. I will eat 2000-2200 calories per day on workout days and 1600-1800 on non-workout/light workout days (updated goal)
Workout days were: 1842, 2565, and 2451 calories; Non-workout/Light days were: 1836, 3172 (birthday), 1658, and 2388 calories. So a little high this week overall, but I did spread my birthday celebration over a few days. Maybe it will help with muscle gains this week. Although, that doughnut probably isn't going to help build any muscle. :)

5. I will eat cleanly, but will allow treat meals

I did well early in the week, but had too many treats for my birthday. I have 8 weeks left in the contest, and I am planning on only 1 or 2 treats per week from here on out.

6. I will eat 5-7 fruits/vegetables per day

Achieved every day except for yesterday.

7. I will not worry about gaining extra weight while building muscle

Didn't worry about gaining weight this week!

8. I will not be neurotic with my diet

Did well this week. Allowed myself more treats than I should have though! I was able to read through Precision Nutrition V3 and made my mealplan for next week. I narrowed it down to ONLY 49 recipes that I want to try. LOL Be sure to Follow My Feasts this week because you'll be getting an eyeful of Gourmet Nutrition V1!

9. I will not be grumpy at my family

Did good this week. I created this goal to work with goals #8 and #10 because if I am stressing about my diet and the contest, then I will be grumpy at my family.

10. I will enjoy the contest and will not allow it to stress me out

This week was great and I felt relaxed.

Finally, here is the link to this weeks TT Coaching Call: TT 7-day Fat Loss Guide. Good stuff this week about social support. You can also get all these calls on iTunes here: TT Podcasts

Have a great week everyone!
