This week I've been working hard on getting back on track. Each day I accomplish at least one of my goals, but haven't really had the perfect day of being completely back in the weight loss game. Yesterday I did well with tracking my calories and planning my day out, but got lazy when it was time to cook. I ate some chili which I was saving for my lunches which was fine, but ate some chocolate which kept me in the higher calorie range when I was trying to lower it.
Today is a new day. Forgot to time my walk, but I walked. Going to plan out my day in the calorie tracker when I am done with this blog and sticking to it today. I have to cook today anyway so no excuses.
I am trying to ease back into eating less starchy foods as well. This helped me before so in effort to get back to basics I decided to go back to what has worked for me. I've also started putting sugar in my coffee which I need to work on reducing. Small changes to get back to into my routine and hopefully back into the losing weight mode!
At first I sort of was giving myself this week to get my act back together. But, then I realized that I am giving myself a way out. Last week was sort of the same thing. Do you see the cycle? I am putting my foot down today with myself and will stick with my planned meals.
Thinking ahead for next week, I'd like to continue with this weeks goals plus these:
-no dairy, no wheat, no added sugar
-start doing pilates
-try to not stay in work out clothes all day
I am working on the first one already except for the no added sugar part. Not sure how my dog will react to me trying to do pilates LOL. Anyone else stay in their work out clothes all day? I admit I like it, but I don't feel like I get dolled up much anymore. While I do want to lose weight to be healthy, it is also to look better. I don't look like these girls taking selfies and posting on instagram looking all hot with a full face of makeup in their tight leggings and sports bras. I have a messy bun or pony tail most days, no makeup, tank top, and walmart shorts. Don't judge me.
Thanks for reading! Are any of you struggling with getting back on track since vacation?
