Today...has been a good day! The last 2 days I have gotten back on track. I know what a lot of you are thinking. 2 days, that's nothing! I hope in six months I can look back at this blog and say the same thing and congratulations to you if you can say that! But the thing is, for me 2 days is a long time to eat well. I can't even count how many times I said "today is the day, I am going to eat better!" And it never lasted through the next meal. So two days is a great accomplishment to me and is giving me the strength to keep it going. A couple years ago, I was doing so awesome. I was 25 lbs. lighter than what I am now and had a great workout routine. Then, I graduated and started a full-time job that does not have a consistent daily schedule. I have finally figured out a schedule that can fit in my life and plan to stick to it! I am doing intense 45-60 min. workouts 3 days a week, with shorter slightly less intense days another 3 days a week. I like to give myself a day off each week for rest and recuperation. I have found that I need to choose 1 or 2 things I want to change at one time vs. trying to tackle them all at once. I have already accomplished drinking more water and now I am on to the next ones - less sweets and more workouts! Like I said before, I know 2 days isn't a lot for most but hey...we all start with baby steps.
