Giving planning a try
Monday, April 15, 2013
Everyone says it here on SP: You need to plan to succeed! And up until that point, I was trying to ignore that fact.
After a month off track, I'm giving planning a chance. My week is going to be super busy and stressful, so if I want to have any chances of eating right and working out, I'll have to plan, otherwise, it's not gonna happened.
I'm not yet ready to start the workout schedule I described in my previous blog because I don't have my bike yet (but I went shopping for it last saturday and I'll probably buy it next week), but I can do something at least! I've been spending the last hour looking at different ST workouts from the Workout generator and I think I'm getting close to finding what I want to do for ST. The good thing is, I only have to click a button and MAGIC, it's in the tracker!
Tonight, I'll do elliptical or my first jogging of the year if the weather is nice, and I'll do upper body and abs ST workout.
I also want to plan my lunches (a thing I NEVER do) for the week. I love variety. So I always pick-up different things in the fridge in the morning and it's easy enough if I have good leftovers and fresh freggies. But I decided I'm gonna try to run on 2 or 3 lunches options for the next two weeks, to remove that from my busy brain, and see how I like that. The key is to choose good food that is not boring and that I like a lot. That way it won't seems like I'm missing something. And it also need to be somthing I can prepare in batches in advance.
I'm thinking crustless quiche, hard boiled egg, maybe salad with chicken breast and maybe also lentils soup but if you have any other ideas feel free to share.
I'm also gonna make my protein shake every morning as breakfast for this week. All this is going to be simpler to prepare and simpler to track!
Fingers crossed it will give me some results!
