Undone my fast break, but starting again

Saturday, April 14, 2012

So in 6 weeks, I regained the weight I had lost during my 6 week fast break. And went from working out 5 days a week to almost nothin=
It's really easy to beat myself up about how stupid I have been...but so what?!?!? I started back at work and it didn't work out to exercise when I thought, the weather turned crappy, and we had company, and then DH had surgery, then everyone had gastro. but so what? i can't undo what I have done. No sense beating myself up. Only question is what did I learn?

* I either have to commit to not seeing Noah in the morning, and exercise before I go to work in the morning which means getting up at 5:30 on the mornings I work. OR I need to plan to exercise in the evening before dinner.

*I have to have a menu plan....with lots of "easy/quick" dinner meals on the nights I work.

* I need to get enough sleep....if I don't then I eat crap, and eat it whenever I am tired....all afternoon, and all evening.

But I can still start again, I will have to live healthfully for the rest of my life, so its not a big deal to start again. Make a plan, do my best, review it, make a plan.

Goals for next week:
* Food: It was fun to do sparkpeople meal plans last week, but I need soem easier recipes for lots of evenings. So I need to do a meal plan for this week that has several "easy' substitions for when cooking is just too hard. I can't shop til Wednesday, so Monday and Tuesday have to be from the pantry. Try for between 1500-1800.
* Exercise: I need to start simple and just look at these things. Walk to and from work on Monday, Tuesday, Thursdays (36 min ea=108 min). Do at least 2 hour long walks on my off days. Try to go for a family swim on Saturday. I need to work on posture and core strength, so I'm going to try and plank 1 min/day. (Total exercise: 265 min)..
* Sleep: Turn off the TV by 10:30, turn off the light by 11:00 pm, except Friday and Saturday night.

Try it...see what works....as long as I keep trying, I'll eventually figure out what really works for me.

    There are some easy crock pot meals you can put on in the mornings , i try to work out 6 days a week so i know it can be hard , i work out in the mornings some days then others at night! Some times i get every thing ready and in the oven and or in the pans on the stove so every thing just has to be turned on and cooked and my husband does that when he gets home from work. everyone just needs to fiqure out what works best for them. emoticon emoticon
