Goal Check In

All right my fine readers, I am finally truly prepared for the day.  I have an entire outfit for going on the lunchtime walk (amazing, top AND bottoms AND shoes!), I am mentally awake for the first time in a few days, which is great, and I'm happy.  I also need to jump start my exercise again, so I'm happy to be walking and hopefully biking later...just getting active again.

Here is how I did yesterday:
Burned 2205 calories
Consumed 1153 calories
Deficit of 1052 calories

So today I wanted to check in with you (okay and with myself) about my July goals to make sure that I am on track!

My goals for July are:
1. I want an average deficit of OVER 1200 calories a day for the whole month.  I changed this one to having a deficit every day and good thing I did ;) feeling much better about that decision.  I've definitely been keeping up with it!
2. I want to continue New Recipe Tuesday and try for Meatless Monday at least twice.  I didn't do it on Monday...but I have had more than two days of no meat.  It's good, but a little harder to meet my calories on those days.  I guess because I normally have it with rice so I'm missing out on all those calories too.
3. I want to clean out my closet, get rid of too-big clothes, sort any too-small clothes that I've kept for way too long and get organized with everything I want to keep.  Hahaha...yeah I have not started this at all.
4. I want to ride my bike all the way to the grocery store and back!  I'm still working on it.  Definitely getting better though, which is nice, and getting more comfortable on my bike :)
5. I want to make it from this moment until it's available and in my hands to STOP COMPLAINING about not having my iPhone 4 yet.  Oops...failed :) but I'm doing better, since the white one is not available until the end of August so at least now I have somewhat of a date.
6. I want to take time to let all of my most treasured friends know that they are special.  Awww, I forgot about this one too.  I'm working on it!
7. I want to get fun and cheap jewelry instead of wearing the same few pendants over and over.  I've luck.  Erin are you reading this?  We need to shop more (as if that were possible)...
8. I want to spend a whole day (our 5 year anniversary) happily drinking wine and eating great food with NO GUILT - yikes, that's a tough one...but important!  All right...this one is coming in about a week - July 23.  I am not really foreseeing any problems with it though!!

Well, I guess I am doing all right.  Not great.  I can do better the second half of the month!  I need to get back on track.  I was talking to my coworker this morning and saying that I am finally seeing the results I want on the scale - the problem is that I haven't been exercising lately.  And I really, really am not up for hearing that I'm losing all muscle - I'm not (unless my measurements are lying that is...).  So in my head what I am doing today is just repeating over and over that I need to be healthy, and not all flappy-skinned, and I have to exercise, even if it means I lose it a little slower!

It is hard when I'm feeling this happy about my weight remember to BE HEALTHY!  I hope that all of you are out there being healthy and not giving in, starving yourselves or any of that bad stuff - if we all do this the right way we'll succeed once and for all :)

I hope I have more to report days have felt so uneventful this week!!  I hope that the rest of you are doing well on your monthly/weekly goals.

I would *love* to see you get your intake over 1400. It would make me very very happy.

I know it's not your job to make me happy, but it would make me worry less :P

Good luck with your goals! #7 stuck out because I love wearing fun and inexpensive jewelry, but I can't do it anymore - I've become allergic to certain metals :-(

@Brig - the walk was fabulous, despite the absurd heat it was a lot of fun :)

@fat girl vs. world - I would love it too. That's why you will be happy to see my blog today!!

@midori mighty warrior - Me too, I can't wear nickel...but I've had pretty good luck with stainless steel and silver jewelry...I just have to find more!
