Burned: 582

Total Calories Burned for the week: 2,330

Weight Watchers Daily Points Used: 42 of 42

Weekly Points Used: 10 (19 left for the week)

Activity Points Used: 0

Activity Points Remaining: 17

Successes: I did everything that I planned to do yesterday, until the very end. Then everything went to Hell in a hand basket.

Failures: Hi, my name is Justin, and I have a cookie addiction. Second time this week I have thrown a pretty good day off completely because I can’t stop eating cookies. We bought some as part of a fundraiser for my son’s school. They are there; therefore, I eat them. Soon they will be gone and hopefully I will quit wrecking my progress with them.

Outlook for today: I have a pretty important meeting this afternoon that could make getting in at a relatively decent hour difficult. Regardless, I am pretty sure I will be eating out for dinner tonight, so I just need to choose something healthy. I hope you have a great day ladies and gentlemen, and keep grinding through the pain!

Successes: I did okay. I took my son to the doctor, thankfully he just has bronchitis and an ear infection. That meant a late supper, so just grabbing something quick was my only option. I got a burger. Not the best option, but there were plenty of other options that would have been a lot worse.

Failures: Just the burger. Pretty much an okay day.

Outlook for today: I have everything planned out for the day, so I just need to stick to it. I also already got my workout in which makes my frame of mind so much better. I hope you have a great day ladies and gentlemen and may all of your fitness dreams come true!

Successes: Yesterday was another really good day. Sticking to my meal plan and getting my exercise in makes a huge difference in my energy level. I feel more refreshed, and I have a noticeable difference in how I feel when I do.

Failures: None. Nada. Zilch. Yes, that’s the same as yesterday because it’s the same result.

Outlook for today: No obstacles that I am aware of, so just don’t give in to any temptation that may pop up.

My workout this morning was P90X Arms & Shoulders. Still my favorite workout on P90X. I also am trying to focus more on my form, so I have gone down in weight for a lot of the moves.

My goal for today is to just do what I plan to do. If I do, it should be a good day. I love it when I eat healthy and do what I know I am supposed to. I just feel better all around.

I hope you have a great day ladies and gentlemen and may all of your fitness dreams come true!

Successes: Great day yesterday! My wife and I have had some crazy schedules the last few weeks, so eating as a family has been a challenge. We both got home at a decent time last night, and not only did we have a good, healthy meal, we also got to have some awesome quality time as a family and hear all about our son’s day at kindergarten (I am sure my daughter would have shared hers too, but it is kind of hard for a nine month old to share).

Failures: None. Nada. Zilch

Outlook for today: No obstacles that I am aware of, so just don’t give in to any temptation that may pop up.

My workout this morning was Insanity Max Interval Circuit. It’s my second day in a row to. Get my workout done in the morning. I prefer it so much to doing it at night, but it’s hard to get back into that mindset. I forget it takes my body longer to warm up in the morning, so it makes it a little harder.getting it done in the morning means time for more important things in the evening. Much better all around.

My goal for today is to just do what I plan to do. If I do, it should be a good day. I love it when I eat healthy and do what I know I am supposed to. I just feel better all around.

I hope you have a great day ladies and gentlemen and may all of your fitness dreams come true!

Calories Burned: 943

Total Calories Burned for the week: 3,251

Weight Watchers Daily Points Used: 42 of 42

Weekly Points Used: 16 (23 left for the week)

Activity Points Used: 0

Activity Points Remaining: 32

Successes: I followed most of the plan that I had set out, so that’s good

Failures: I planned to have one White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookie. I had two. Not horrible by any stretch of the imagination, but it was more than I needed.

Outlook for today: No obstacles that I am aware of, so just don’t give in to any temptation that may pop up.

My workout tonight will be P90X Legs & Back. I plan to start back with morning workouts next week. I haven’t done Legs & Back in a while. It is by far my least favorite workout on P90X. Chicken Leg syndrome runs in my family, so doing leg work kills me. I am hoping that all that Plyo I did with Insanity helps make this easier.

My goal for today is to make sure I get my workout in. I want to get back to doing it in the morning. It may not happen this week, but I plan to get back into the swing of things by next week. Have a great day ladies and gentlemen, and may all of your fitness dreams come true!

Successes: I used 7 of my weekly points, but as long as I don’t go too much over that, I’m doing alright.

Failures: Nothing I can think of yesterday where I slipped up, so I won’t call anything a failure.

Outlook for today: No obstacles that I am aware of, so just don’t give in to any temptation that may pop up.

My workout tonight will be Insanity Max Plyo Circuit. Still having a hard time getting up. This time, I forgot to set my alarm for the right time, so another day for night exercise for me.

My goal for today is to make sure I get my workout in. I want to get back to doing it in the morning. It may not happen this week, but I plan to get back into the swing of things by next week. Have a great day ladies and gentlemen, and may all of your fitness dreams come true!

Successes: Nailed my eating plan for the second day in a row.

Failures: Once again, can’t say that there were any failures to speak of. Week has gotten off to a solid start.

Outlook for today: No obstacles that I am aware of, so just don’t give in to any temptation that may pop up.

My workout tonight will be P90X Arms & Shoulders. It’s probably my favorite of the P90X series. Always feels like I am a little bit stronger after completing it.

My goal for today is to make sure I get my workout in. I prefer working out in the morning, but I have had a hard time getting out of bed the last two days, so I have had to do it at night. Just do it whenever I can. Have a great day ladies and gentlemen, and may all of your fitness dreams come true!
