Weight Loss Wednesdays ~ Exercise

It seems that Dawn at  http://guidinglighths.com/category/weight-loss/  has ended her Management Monday fitness posts so I will be linking up with a different one. It seems I have already been following Confessions Of A Snowflake but her blog got lost amongst all the other blogs I follow. So I will be linking up with her meme Weight Loss Wednesdays from now on.

They have topics of concentration each week. This week is exercise. My favorite exercises are on the Wii. I have never found anything that I like to do more than work out on the Wii. We have the Wii Fit. I love the variety of exercises. Each day I can do different exercises in these areas: balance, aerobics, strength training, and yoga. Back in March I posted about my routine on the Wii... HERE is the link... if you are interested. There are some links to videos on YouTube of the games I play the most.

My Weight Loss and Fitness Goals From Last Week and How I Did:
  1. Exercise at least 3 days and hopefully 4 or more, on the Wii. Exercised 2 days on the Wii and made excuses the other days.
  2. Drink my water... at least 48 oz... but strive for 64. Some days I was successful, others not successful, others I didn't keep track. So, How do I keep track of my water intake??? Do I write down each cup of water I drink? No, I use rubber bands on my cup. My daughter likes how I keep track of my water intake and said I should share it on my blog. I thought I had already done that but I looked and I never really explained it. My cup holds 16oz of water. I try and drink 6-8 8oz. cups of water a day... 64 oz. total. That would be 4 16oz. cups, so 4 of my cups is my goal each day. That is my cup in the picture on the right. Each time I fill my cup I put a rubber band up to the top. When I fill it up for the 4th time then I know when I have drunk all the water in that cup that I have met my goal for the day. So to fulfill my goal I have to drink at least 3 and hopefully 4 full cups of water a day. Each day I start with just 1 at the top again, when I fill it up in the morning. I have still not found my journal for keeping track so I have been writing my water intake on a calendar. I hope this gives you ideas of how to track you water intake and I hope this particular trick helps someone drink more water and track it better.Keep track of what I eat and don't eat junk food... stick to Weight Watchers diet as much as possible. I did not track my eating. I STILL need to find my Weight Watchers calculator and note pad where I keep these records.
  3. Eat more veggies and fruit. Did better this week but not great. I should do really well this week since we purchased a lot of fruit and veggies at Shady Maple Farm Market yesterday.
  4. Don't snack after 8pm. Mostly successful on this. Need to keep it up.
  5. Get to bed earlier... goal is computer/tv off at 9:30, read for 1/2 an hour then bed at 10pm, but any improvement on the after 11pm late nights I have been doing will be good. I think I got to bed early one night. But I am working on it and I did get off my computer early 2 or 3 nights. So... I am doing better, but not good.
Weight stayed the same - 244.7 lb 
I updated my weight loss ticker.
I weighed myself on Tuesday... I missed exercising on Monday. Next week I will start weighing myself on Wednesdays. 

http://zaazu.comGoals for Next Week:
  1. Exercise at least 3 days and hopefully 4 or more, on the Wii. I am only working out about 30 min. a day. When I was really loosing I was working our one day for an hour and at least one day 45 min. and then 2 or 3 days 30 min. I really want to get back to that.
  2. Drink my water... at least 48 oz... but strive for 64.
  3. Keep track of what I eat and don't eat junk food... stick to Weight Watchers diet as much as possible.
  4. Eat more veggies and fruit which will be easy this week since we bought such good stuff at Shady Maple yesterday.
  5. Don't snack after 8pm.
  6. Get to bed earlier... goal is computer/tv off at 9:30, read for 1/2 an hour then bed at 10pm, but any improvement on the after 11pm late nights I have been doing will be good.
