This is hard for me as I've sort of swept my goals under the rug lately. I know I'm sounding like a broken record but I CANNOT get the hang of these 12 hour days. I'm so exhausted after my shift that I can't exercise. And I know all of y'all super fit people will say 'don't make excuses or don't say CAN'T' well, I CAN'T!
But, what I CAN do is exercise diligently on my 4 days off. I will do that. Every damn day, I'll do it. No matter how tired or busy I am because I deserve to be fit and healthy. I always feel better when I work out so that's my exercise plan.
My healthy eating habits have been swept under that same rug. That is one super duper lumpy rug. I'm ok with eating healthy at work because I bring ALL of my food so I normally don't stray. Plus, I'm weird about eating food other people bring in so no worries there. The problem I'm having lately is pigging out on my days off. I look forward to it. I plan what junk I'm going to scarf while sitting in front of the t.v. This one's a little tougher to solve.
---1---Don't buy the junk. I can't eat it if I don't buy it. Easy peasy.
---2---Get my fitness in early in the day so I'm less likely to want to screw up. It's worked
in the past.
---3---Stop looking at food as a reward. I do this all the time. I think I'll re-read The Spark.
---4---Go back to keeping a food diary. I will still log food on spark but there's something
about physically writing down what I eat and how I'm feeling. Gonna get on that. Even
bought a pretty notebook.
I will set a reward system for myself. Small things that will encourage me. Just not food, lol.
Here's the ravishing BEFORE BLC20 photo:
