Menu planning is so important!

Sunday, February 17, 2013

The past week has been kind of crappy as far as my nutrition is concerned. I had too much chocolate, I went out to eat a bunch of times, and last night's dinner was a waffle, which wasn't even all that good. I wrote about it in my journal because I feel really crappy about it - sluggish, dumpy, blah... I'm pretty sure that my poor nutrition habits had to do a lot with hubs going back to work. Not that I'm blaming him, it's more like I'm blaming myself because I got so used to him planning our meals and cooking them all. I was kind of like a deer in the headlights when it came to cooking last week.

Last night? I didn't feel like taking the time to make a good dinner (and in reality, it takes about 5 minutes to throw together a good soup), so I found some waffle mix, and bam, dinner. Ugh. I was really upset last night when hubs came home. I cried to him about how I felt so awful this week because of my lack of planning, and he was really sweet. He said he was going to leave me "sub plans" for my dinners. What a great guy. Then he reminded me that one week is not going to put me back, and that he loves me. sigh.

- drink lots of water (I am struggling with this again, and it's frustrating)
- make an eating plan for at least the next few days, and grocery shop to reflect the plan!
- work hard at the gym - this morning is a little TM run and some lower body ST

    One bad week will not make you fat. Just like one good week will not make you thin.

    I got that in an mail last week except it said "meal" not "week". You get the idea tho'.

    You can fix this and you WILL fix this. You're not a deer in the headlights. You're a strong person AND a personal trainer. Now refocus and make some better choices this week. emoticon
