Week One: The Game Plan

Ok - I'm in this to win this...quite literally.  Which means...yep, I need a game plan.

So - with that in mind, my goals for this week are as follows:

  • Prep food in advance - Done!  Spent a chunk of today chopping veggies (and my thumb, apparently.  I am so not a chef)
  • 10,000 steps a day on the Fitbit - this will mean walking or running on my lunch breaks every day because those days are the ones I never have trouble hitting the goal.  Easy peasy
  • Coffee wean - I've already been working on this.  I am down to one cup a day and have been cutting back on the sugar for the past week.  By the end of this week, I will be drinking tea instead.  I will still have post-long run coffees as a special treat, but my daily habit is killing me calorically
  • 2L of water at work each day - one in the morning, one in the afternoon
Let's do this thing.


  1. I'm very excited to hear about your progress! I went from 3 grande size, sugared up coffees a day to mostly tea over the last couple of weeks and i feel good now, but had 10 days worth of headaches and general fuzziness.

    If you are loving the sweetness-i have some loose lemon green tea that i've been drinking that doesn't need any extra sweetener. I can definitely give you some to try. I plan on trying my coffee flavoured tea tomorrow and will let you know. I've been scared to try it since i'm expecting a certain coffee taste and don't know if a coffee substitute will be good.

  2. Ok...not so sure about this "ivegone" know me as chosenbyjesus (Twitter)...
    I'm finding it way easier to get 10,000 steps now that I'm in Korea!

    1. (actually, I know you as Christine ;) but I digress)

      That's awesome. I've been meaning to check your blog to follow the adventure...consider it on my to do list today!

  3. Yeah...i used to be able to comment on your post using my blog name or just my name-now i can only use google to comment-there are no other options. Did you change a setting?

    1. Now that you mention it - yeah, I did. The spam was getting a bit crazy so I decided to see if there was a way to reduce it. I didn't want to put in word verification so I made it Google account...sorry. But it DID stop the spam...
