Sleep: (A) Solid 8+ hours of sleep every night with a few short afternoon naps. Felt great and rested everyday this week.
Diet/Hydration: (B+) Ate a little unhealthy this weekend, but relatively well most of the week. Didn’t keep hydrated well on a few days.
Weight/Body Fat: (A) Lost 0.2 lbs this week. Weight decreased from 145.9 lbs to 145.7 lbs and body fat remained unchanged at 8.9%.
Cross-Training/Stretching: (A) Good amount of cross-training – bike trainer, core/strength workouts, and yoga.
Stress Management: (B+) Not too stressful this week, but busy.
