- Consistent Tracking: Spot on.
- 1600 Daily Goal: Three days of out of 7 were within 50 calories of 1600. While the goal is my daily target, I'm finding it to be a discouraging statistic.
- Weekly Average: 1707. That's more like it! I'm totally good with this average.
- Monthly Average: 1809. Again I'm good with this. If the range I got from SparkPeople is correct, this puts my monthly average within that range to lose 1 pound per week. I like the long term trend being established.
Both of my kids fell ill on Thursday within hours of each other and one of our relatives brought us dinner. My husband and I orbited the kids trying to figure out what they would eat, taking temperatures, rocking and soothing while occasionally grabbing a bite of whatever we could manage in the moment. It was kind of like a party buffet without the festive atmosphere. I'm definitely learning that, when I eat in that mode, I overeat.
The kids are slowly recovering, but Father's Day weekend was pretty much cancelled. To make an attempt at some celebration for my husband, I got carry out on Saturday night which included French Fries and Tzatziki Dip. If you've never tried this combination, save yourself and don't start now. If you have, you understand why I'm happy that I stayed close to 2000 calories that day.
All-in-all, I'm happy with last week. I look forward to the week to come with a return to health in my house and, hopefully, a return to the gym for my body!
