Wrapping up Week 1

Friday, July 10, 2020

Tomorrow starts Week 2 of the Summer 5% Challenge, so I wanted to review what has gone well and what I might do differently next week.


Kept my food and exercise journal faithfully, every day
Exceeded my commitment for fitness minutes and got some in every day
Invited family members on my walks so I got some company and they got some steps
Tried a couple of new recipes that were well-received
Participated on the team page daily
Offered support to other team members
Kept my commitment to avoid unplanned snacks

Areas for improvement:

Plan dinner ahead so I'm not scrambling to find something to cook (or telling everyone to fend for themselves)
Keep more fruits/veggies on hand and prepped
Eat a healthier breakfast (add some protein, some dairy, some fruit...)

I'm sure there's lots more room for improvement, but my son just asked me to come hang out so off I go! :-)

    Great week one. Liked the recipes you shared on the thread. emoticon Good idea walking with family. DH is my constant. Bike, hike, jog, he never says," No". Sometimes it takes help to get out there! emoticon I like to make a large batch of brown rice and keep it in the fridge. For me it's easy to add a protein, some veggies and spices. emoticon emoticon emoticon
