I've missed writing you all, but life has left me a little busy. Not to busy to stay on track, but too busy to write long posts... so this one will be quick too.
My little lesson for the day is this, SMALL ADJUSTMENTS EQUAL BIG RESULTS!
Here's the story:
I had all the right intentions. Go to bed early, wake up workout, carry my lean cuisine to school, eat 1/2 a bagel with peanut butter for breakfast, and have a great day.
Then, life happened.
I went to bed later than I wanted. Well, I went to bed on time but took a long time to fall asleep. Which resulted in me snoozing one too many times. BUT, and this but is important, I made a few small adjustments and I'm glad to say I still consider this day a success!
* I didn't wake up in time for my FULL workout, but I did have enough time to do 15 mins and work up a pretty good sweat.
* I bought breakfast at the cafeteria because I ran out of the house without making my planned breakfast - but tried to eat healthy. apples, sausage, eggs. Did the best I could and recorded my food
* Lunch was chick fil a... and I got the FRIED version. BUT I did not get a drink [ so that saved me a few calories] just a small cup of water!
* Because I knew I had a big lunch, I decided to let that be my MAIN meal and eat light for dinner.
*I ate a handful of craisins and 100 cal popcorn for a snack and grilled chicken ~ 3.5 oz and string beans for dinner. and get this... I even had DESSERT! It was frozen fruit with splenda sprinkled on top... but it was Delish AND I have no guilt! best of both worlds!
So, NOT a perfect day, but NOT bad considering how it could have gone! And that leads me to the conclusion that small adjustments lead to big results!
On a side note: Despite traveling for 9 days straight with little sleep and little access to healthy foods, I not only maintained but LOST a pound. I am really proud guys. This time feels different, because, well.... it IS different. In case you are wondering why it's different, the answer is simple.
I FINALLY BELIEVE it is possible.
Therefore, it is.
Love you all.
