Review the Previous Week in the areas of movement, food, and mind:

Last Week's Successes - Food: I did best in the early part of the week, managing to up my fiber to 50+ for several days running and even brought my total calories down. I've learned to make a particularly healthy cookie and I'm generally increasing my knowledge of healthy, high fiber foods.

Last Week's Successes - Exercise: With the exception of Saturday when I was sick, I kept all my exercise promises to myself.

Last Week's Successes - Mind and Related Factors: Allowing myself to eat without being as concerned with calories or bread helped me deal with a very tough week. In addition the incense helped as well.

Last Week's Challenges: It was a fairly stressful week with lots of long workdays and nightmares about work. In addition, there were other unanticipated stressers. Toward the end of the week things fell apart. I was ravenous on Thursday and Friday which I think may have been due either to the build-up of stress through the week or was the early indication of an illness that came upon me on Saturday. I'm also very tired and getting too little sleep. Most disappointing about last week was the failure to record on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

Assess the Upcoming Week's Challenges and Opportunities:
Next week should be a better week. The main stressor at work has been handled. I've learned a little about fiber and can parlay that to a better diet next week.

Set an Intention for the Upcoming Week and Formulate a Plan:
Next Week's Intention: Continue to work towards getting 50+ grams of fiber a day. Diligently record food and exercise in Fitclick. Continue to implement the exercise plan. Focus some effort on catching up on sleep by going to bed earlier. Set daily intentions.


The Plan
: I plan to continue with much the same for next week. That is, I still need to pack lunches for Mondays and Wednesdays, still to carry through on my exercise plan and I still need to work on getting a lot of fiber. I also intend to work on getting at least 8 hours of sleep a night by going to bed earlier and (most critically) doing what I can to reduce stress before bed so that I can sleep through the night.

I plan to do the daily updates in the blog instead of the Status Line, which I think will give me a better ability to look back and analyze.
