Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
As I looked back over this past week, I realized that I’ve just been going through the motions for the last three weeks and haven’t really been making that big of an effort to get my habits back on track. I was walking home Saturday night, and I was planning out everything that I needed to do to get myself back on track, and then I thought about stopping to pick up some chips to eat when I got home. This was a wake up moment for me! I did not stop for chips and instead went straight home and crafted a new plan.
I did not follow my workout or meal plans at all last week. I also ate out at least twice, but I think it might have been more because I didn’t keep track and I don’t remember. I do know that I had a couple of pieces of cake, several candy bars, a brownie, chips and some ice cream. One or two of these items is fine, but I definitely don’t need to eat all of them in one week.
For this week, I’m scaling things back and adding something on each day. I am planning shorter workouts that I can fit in when I have breaks throughout the day and trying to keep my food choices simpler. I started making adjustments Saturday and did really well on Sunday (including tracking all of my eats and workouts in My Fitness Pal– if you want to add me, my email is on my contact page).
