Week Eleven Update

I'm definitely starting to feel a little worn down, but only one more week to go - time to finish strong!

1. I will make every workout count
Workouts were pretty good this week. Turbulence Training for Buff Dudes and Hot Chicks is a really good workout. I beat my time on Friday from the previous week. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to beat it, but I set up all the equipment I was going to need in one location and I think that helped shave some time off.

2. I will drink less diet soda
I have been consciously working on this and have reduced some. So I think that is a success!

3. I will weigh myself ONLY once per week

Did pretty good this week. Wasn't on the scale everyday and when I did weigh myself, I didn't let it concern me.

4. I will eat 1200-1400 calories per day on reduced calorie/carb days and 1500-1700 on refeed/higher days (updated goal)
Reduced days were: 1160, 1365, 1290, 1203, and 1240 calories; Refeed day was 1532 calories. A little low on one of my reduced days - that was Sunday and I'm always a little low on Sundays because things get pushed a little later and I have one less meal than on other days. Only one refeed day this week. That's just the way the high/low days fell. A little low on calories for that day as well. Otherwise, right in the range I was shooting for. Down 2 pounds this week, so right on target. If I had lost more than 2 pounds, I would adjust the number of calories.

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

Did well this week. No major treat meals this week, but I did have a piece of pumpkin cheesecake on Friday. We celebrated PI(e) day at work and I brought in my cheesecake because it's healthy and I know what's in it. Not to mention it's YUMMY.

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

Achieved everyday!

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

Working on fat loss now, so this goal is n/a.

8. I will not be neurotic with my diet

Much better this week. No really neurotic moments. I actually had a really good week and am feeling good about my goal of eating without first entering everything into fitday when this contest is over.

9. I will not be grumpy at my family

Had a pretty good week! I promised myself that if calorie/carb cycling made me grumpy I would stop doing it. My husband actually said to me this week that he thought I was holding up pretty well! :)

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

Got a little stressed this weekend, but now I'm ready to finish strong!
