Weekly update, 7/21/09

Quick update this week; it's been a crazy-busy one! I'm shaking it up during the coming week week: PLAYouts/active rest and no food logging. Just felt like doing something a little different. We'll see how it goes....

Progress last week

7-day blood glucose average: 100
7-day fasting blood glucose average: 98

Weight goal: +1.2 lbs. (Oh well...that, despite Friday's "no nuts" challenge! Although maybe that helped prevent it from being more...?)

Food goals:
- Got in 5 meatless meals, 1 fish meals.
- Not meeting the coffee goal. I did not even try to meet it this week.
- Fiber was better this week; 4/7 days were over 30.

Exercise goals:
I didn't meet my training goals. I got in at least 30 minutes of activity 5/7 days.

I missed going to the gym this week--I was too busy to go during the day--but I did get in two good runs, a long bike ride, and a shorter bike ride over the weekend. For strength, I did about 20 minutes on my own with my hand weights at home, and I did a little "playout" strength items at the park yesterday. I'll try to do some tonight, too...at least a few abs exercises! No swim this week, but there should be plenty next week.

Misc. goals: Did well with the sleep this week.

Goals for this week

7-day blood glucose average goal and fasting numbers: below 120.
Weight goal: Maintain current weight.

Food goals: I'm trying "intuitive eating" this week, and I'm taking this week off from logging my food.

Exercise goals:
I'm also taking this week as an "active rest"/PLAYout week. No intense workouts, unless I feel like it, but getting a minimum of 30 minutes of activity 5 days/week.

Misc. goals:
- 7 or more hours sleep/night.

Always so happy to see your numbers so great!

I am with you on the exercise this past week - it was the last thing I wanted to do after a hectic week at work - and I was going to go to the gym this afternoon, but got called into work - I am going to kick ass next week though! :D

Happy Saturday!
