Week #111: In Review

"Life without a purpose is a languid, drifting thing; every day we ought to review our purpose, saying to ourselves, 'This day let me make a sound beginning, for what we have hitherto done is naught!" ~ Thomas a Kempis

Weight Loss = 3.9 lbs
Fat % Loss = +0.7%

Updated "My Progress Charts" can be found HERE.

All in all, this week went better than expected. As you know Sherri was away for 4.5 of the 7 days this week, and I still managed to keep my shit together. Out of my nutrition, physical and mental goals/guidelines, nutrition is always my biggest struggle when it comes to will power. I missed failed to achieve quite a lot of guidelines this week, but I managed to maintain my nutrition guidelines, which I consider a huge victory. I only exercised 4 out of the 7 days, but my level of intensity, and length of exercise was greater than normal.

I bombed on my To-Do List, but I actually was quite busy with a large task that wasn't on my list to begin with. At least I was doing something productive. Also I failed to call my friend Tera (again)........ If your reading Tera, I'm sorry for letting ya down (again).

Focus for this week: I WILL start reading my book on meditation......I know, I know (I feel like a broken record)....this is the 5th week in a row that I've said I'm putting it on my To-Do List (AGAIN). I also want to ramp up my exercise a bit more.....we'll see how things go.

I hope everyone else had a great week!
