I Need a Do-Over
Saturday, July 28, 2012
I completed all of the videos and basic cardio for Week 3 of the 28-Day Bootcamp Workout Challenge, but I did not increase my cardio or eat five servings of fruits and vegetables each day this week. I was sick to my stomach on Wednesday and Thursday, so I consoled myself with crackers and ginger ale. And cupcakes. Sigh. In other words, I did not make smart food choices this week.
So my goal moving forward is to re-do Week 3, adding in the extra cardio and eating as cleanly as possible. To that end, I did my grocery shopping this afternoon, and stocked up on lots of fresh fruit and veggies (blueberries, raspberries, asparagus, zucchini, broccoli, avocados, romaine lettuce, English cucumber). I also splurged on some salmon to bake in a nice low-fat mustard-white wine sauce.
Back in May, I was successful in losing six pounds by eating only whole, unprocessed, organic foods for two weeks. I'm giving that a try again. I've got to do something to break my sugar and carbohydrate addiction. I'm eating too emotionally these days; I need to eat for energy and health.
