So I've been keeping track of my calories and I'm not doing so good so far. Maybe I'll use this week as a learning experience. When you get in a routine of eating certain things for meals it's hard to break the habbit. Even when you know that you'll be going over your calories for the day. I'm also a little nervous because we're going to the movies tonight and my favorite thing to get there is CHERRY COKE and POPCORN. UGH! Maybe we should just skip the movies. I also feel like I have such a busy life that it's hard to get everything done in a day's time.
Example: 5pm get off work, 6pmish get home from picking up Liam from daycare, 6:30-7pm get dinner ready and Liam's dinner ready and eat (usually it takes more time to eat healthy and I'm always in a rush). 7pm finally sit down to eat, 7:30pm take a walk outside if the weather's nice, 8pm get Liam home and ready for bath, bed, etc. 8:30pm get chores done (laundry, dishes, bottles), 9:30pm finally have a chance to sit down, maybe.
Where's my chance to work out? I'm going to join the gym again but I'm wondering where I'm going to fit everything in? The gym closes at 10pm. I'm not much of a weight lifter so I'll probably stick with cardio for a bit. If I get real adventurous I might do some weights, but I'd rather have someone I know there with me helping me along. I've always been shy and having a buddy would keep me from totally fumbling around and looking like I'm a complete idiot or drunk. I get so clutsy when I feel insecure and self conscience.
Oh woe is me.
HOWEVER, I can give myself a pat on the back because since I've joined Sparkpeople I've not had one single drop of a soft drink....yet. And I've been walking every day during the evening.
