PLAN = FAIL
But I am still going to do this dang thing; really, I am!!! I want to because I know it'd be really good for me because every time I start it my body feels really great!!! And I know it takes about 21 days (the length of my PLAN) to make or break a habit. So when I actually do this right and complete it, I'll be much less inclined to eat crap and much more inclined to keep eating clean and working out on a continuous basis.
Here's the relaity: I set myself up for failure.
How? Well for one thing, I didn't have my car this whole week. Benjamin did. Not having my car meant not using the gym since I use the Navy gyms and I can't get on base without the decals on my car. I did have my neighbor's car though so I've hiked a lot and walked a lot too, which is good.
BUT I also haven't tracked at all again which ALWAYS causes me to slip until I'm caught in a landslide and the scale goes up and my hopes go down. I'm not weighing myself this week. I just absolutely REFUSE to do that to myself. I am not throwing in the towel in any way.
See, the thing is, in not planning properly, I let myself fail. Not cool, Chrissie. Not cool.
My anniversary is this coming Friday and Benjamin has tomorrow and Monday off. Then he has work Tuesday and he is basically off for a whole week. So for the next week I know I can't do my plan because there will be too many interferences. And I refuse to let myself fail again. The next time I start my PLAN, I'm going to finish it. I need to for my own sanity! Haha.
SO here are my goals for the next week and a half or so:
1. Exercise for 30-60+ min every day, even if it's just a liesurely walk with hubby
2. Drink 160oz of water daily
3. Track my food, no matter what!
4. Make healthy food choices whenever possible and skip dessert except for my anniversary cake :)
5. ENJOY having my love home for almost a week!!! And then be ready to start the PLAN for real when he goes back to work!
