So, in my last blog, I talked about my first failure since starting over (still less than a week ago). I had planned to make up for it yesterday... and I was doing well with lots of exercise.... and then my husband came home and wanted to go out to eat to a really cool pizza place we had been wanting to try.
And then no one had to twist my arm to order dessert. Bad me!
But that leads me to my progress today. I have not stopped! I have not thrown in the towel!
Today I went to the grocery store, and planned out healthy dinners that I will cook- and those leftovers will provide most, if not all of the dinners for this week. Tonight I shall make penne with chicken and broccoli from America's Test Kitchen Healthy Family Cookbook. Tomorrow I shall cook Mama's red beans and rice from SP's cookbook- that stuff is tasty :)
Today I planned to workout. And then the time to work-out came, and I did not want to (no surprise). At first it was just pure laziness and inertia. And then thoughts of how I pretty much ruined my caloric intake for the week with my 2 unrestrained restaurant outings, so what was the point.... and then I realized.... that's the point!!! That's why I need to get my ass up off the couch and move. Bad eating is even MORE reason to do better in exercise, and gosh darn it, I want to change.
And I'm proud to announce, that with today's workout (30day shred level 1, which is getting to be easier, thankyouverymuch), I met my work-out burned calories goal for the week :). I haven't mastered the eating part yet, but I will get there.
