So, for this week, my goals are:
1. At least one hour of dedicated exercise every day -- something like walking, biking, cardio.
2. No eating out.
3. Try two new recipes from my Hungry Girl cookbook.
4. Lose a pound.
5. Cull from a different room each day, getting some extra physical activity in and prepping stuff for a yard sale.
6. Writing: Read through women's fiction manuscript and send to my agent for submission to editor she met at National. And do an editing/read-through for a friend.
I'm happy to report that as of Friday morning, I hit the 10 pounds lost mark. Yay!
Calorie intake: The above goal about not eating out comes because of another high-calorie, eating out day, with approximately 1,999 calories. Ugh. It's SO easy to overdo it if you're not cooking at home or if you're eating at a restaurant where it's not easy to calculate the calorie counts. It's much easier when you're at a restaurant that's a chain and which has its nutritional information online. Not so much when it's an independent. Though I didn't do well yesterday, I did resist two items at the hockey game that I love -- nachos (which when I looked them up beforehand have something like 1,100 calories!) and funnel cake.
Exercise: Not much other than climbing stairs at the arena when I went to a hockey game last night.
