Spring Chick Challenge Week One Check In

Check out the Spring Chick Challenge 2012 on Real Chicks Getting Fit.

This week has been better than I expected it to be food wise.  My only really "bad" day was yesterday when we treated my daughter to a special lunch at a Chinese Buffet.  I ate non-fried foods, plenty of vegetables, and tried to maintain portion control.  I had only one plate of food, and drank water with lemon instead of a soft drink.  I am not sure how I did on calories, this is one area where I am going to have to work on as we do enjoy eating out quite a bit.  I am also suppose to attend the same Chinese buffet next week with Little Man's class to celebrate the Chinese New Year.  Maybe I can do some research to make some good choices on foods when we go then.

Other than that I have maintained my calorie count on a daily basis, and sometimes have struggled to get the 1200 calories needed for the day.  As I am eating more fresh fruits and vegetables I am finding that I am eating more food with less calories than before.

As far as the water intake goes it has went about as well as expected.  I really need to work on this.  I also need to work on exercise.  I had several big orders this week and haven't had much time for exercise.  So my goal for the week is to really make a bigger effort in these areas, as I am not hitting either my target fitness times or water intake levels.
