7-Day Summary ~ Oops Is All I Can Say

So. 7 days ago I "started" a 7-day challenge. I say 'started' b/c all I really did was select a few items and then take a screenshot of each. I didn't start out each day thinking 'I have challenges/goals to make today, so let's do this!', if I had, I probably would have done better. Oops. I never said I wasn't lazy Haha

Let's see how bad I failed, shall we? I can only go up from here, right? 😆

Goal: 6,000 steps
          Avg. 3,959
Goal: Exercise 5 days
          Avg. 0 days
Goal: 8 hr per night
          8 hr 7 min per night
Goal: 15 active minutes per day
          7 min per day
Goal: Weight ___lbs
          ___ lbs (still haven't weighed. Oops.)
Goal: Log food 5 days a week
          5 days
Goal: 64 oz of water per day
          39 oz per day

Not off to a good start.....But let's break it down anyway. Since I didn't make my goals, it offers suggestions that are more attainable.

Goal #1: 6,000 steps a day.

Reality #1: Average was 3,959. Not even half of my goal. So, changed that goal to 4,500 steps. Should be more feasible.

Goal #2: Exercise 5 days a week.
Reality #2: didn't exercise a single day but I still kept the 5 days a week goal.

Goal #3: 8 hours of sleep.
Reality #3: Success! 3 days of 8 hours. And believe you me, that's quite hard for me to achieve. Haha.

Goal #4: 15 minutes of activity a day.
Reality #4: Averaged 7 minutes a day. Almost half way there so I'm keeping that goal.

Goal #5: Weight goal.
Reality #5: Can't really say much about this b/c I haven't weighed myself in months so I don't even have a 'start' goal. I should probably remedy that so I could see if there was change (good or bad) LOL.

Goal #6: Log food 5 days a week.
Reality #6: Success! Although this isn't a very hard goal. What IS hard about this is remembering to input and sometimes finding the food to input correctly is.....difficult LOL.

Goal #7: Drink 64 oz of water a day.

Reality #7: Drank an average of 39 oz daily. Told you I was bad about drinking enough water. I don't drink anything else. Well, maybe except for my coffee in the morning and the occasional Sweet Tea when we go out to eat. So, changed my goal to 48 oz.

No one is really surprised I didn't so well, right? Should've started this small last week. Aim low and be happy I make it higher. 😊

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…
