Getting back on Track goals

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

I've had a good vacation. My weight hasn't changed. My eating hasn't been great -- I've definitely had more chocolate and fewer vegetables than I should. I've taken it very easy with fitness, too. I've stuck with walking, sometimes a lot of walking, but rarely breaking a sweat.

Tomorrow I'm getting back into my weekday routine. I'll have a vegetable smoothie for breakfast and pack my salad and fruit for lunch and snack. Lola and I will do a short run. I'll go to the gym for a sweaty cardio session before work. I'll do the 2-for-8 challenge during the day. I'll walk outdoors at my lunch break. For dinner I'll have a sensible portion of whatever Mike prepares for dinner. Repeat through Friday.

Not an exciting plan, but a sound one. I'll get back to those basics that work for me. In addition, I've got to put in 3 hectic days at the office. I've got to take care of Lola and the kitties. I've got to keep the peace with Mike. I've got to sleep at night.

The more I think about it, the more things I want to add. I've got to stop now before I mentally overwhelm myself.

    You have to keep the peace with Mike? Are you 'walking on eggshells' in this relationship?

    Your plan is great because it is reasonable and achievable. Life long fitness and health sounds great to me.
    I totally relate to overwhelming the brain with too many goals and expectations. Keep it simple is my challenge too.

    Duh, I didn't get the 2-4-8 reference until you commented on my page it could be 2 FOR 8. ((headsmack))

    Thank you for info on your Nutribullet. We are leaving next week in our trailer for at least four weeks, but I've already decided I'm going to get the Nutribullet at Target before we go. Normally I would order it online since we love so far out from EVERYTHING.

    I'm so happy with you for reaching your goals and maintaining through the holidays! You have a great routine that's working for you! Keep up the good work and keep sparking!

    I like simplicity. Over complicating things is often what causes us to stumble. Great plan. emoticon
