Last week I wrote about how I felt I was still doing well with my food choices and getting movement in, but that I had a gain anyway. I decided I should give up chocolate and soda for Lent (I think as a punishment for myself), which actually led to INTENSE cravings for both. Even though I had controlled my portions of these foods so far, when I told myself I couldn't have any of it I became ravenous for them. Needless to say I had a pretty bad week.
I cut back my execise to just the daily walk (I'm only up to 22 minutes and I still deal with shin splints every day!)
I also let myself not track my food for several days. That was a mistake! I have to keep myself accountable. I am tracking my food today. That feels better.
I wasn't getting 8 cups of water last week either, not even the six I had been getting each day since the first of the month. I'm drinking water right now. I will get 6 cups in today.
It's always about picking yourself back up and doing what you know is right!!!
