I am proud to report I have kept up with all the goals I set 4 weeks ago about being consistent. I have worked out a minimum of 3 days, most weeks 4, every week. Both strength training and cardio, as well as some ab work etc at home. I have brought my lunch every single day except once that I planned not too and I didn't go crazy and tracked everything. I have been making consistently better food choices and planning ahead. I even went to 2 different supermarkets this weekend to get different healthy products that are helping me get on track that I can only get at specific places. I just stock up so I don't have to go too frequently. I can see my body changing every day and I truly believe strength training is a very important thing for me. More muscle makes me look smaller, feel stronger and burn more calories. Women can not bulk up the way men do so stop using that as an excuse ladies and add strength training. You will be surprised how much better you look after even just a week!
My next goal is to get a better handle on my eating. I am still mindless eating or grabbing junk that is in front of me that I don't need. It bothers me because I know if I got a handle on the unplanned snacking this will be the key to my keep all of this under control. I feel like I am finally living a way that is manageable and that is exciting. Not feeling deprived and like I have no time for myself. It has also made me realize that I don't like what I do and until I make a change work will stress me out. I hate sales, always have. I like the planning the events portion but not the cold calling and soliciting. It just isn't my thing and I need to accept that and look for a new job. It is scary but it is the right thing to do.
My goals this week:
Keep up the working out and pushing myself at the gym
Get the mindless eating and unplanned snacking under control
Start looking for jobs that are more my thing
Be more consistent with my water. I am either drowning myself or not drinking enough. I need to be mindful of that.
Address some issues with a good friend of mine that are bothering me and I need to just say something and resolve it or move on from the friendship. It is causing me too much stress.
Have a great week my sparkpeeps. I love you guys!
