I'm struggling.. Oh how I am struggling. Struggling to make the right food choices. Struggling to get exercise in. Struggling to drink water. Not that I am drinking anything else.. but I haven't drank more than about 8 ounces of water today. That is nowhere near what I should be drinking.
I've really been struggling the most with food choices lately.. I will start out good and I have good intentions at the end of the day. But night comes around and it's like I haven't eaten in weeks. Not only that, but it's junk food. Seriously.. can I justify throwing out my kid's Easter candy because I am eating it instead of them? Because I really want to! If it's not in the house, I don't feel the need to buy it. Except I do get Fiber One brownies.. and some dark chocolate for the rare occasions that I really have a sweet tooth. I haven't even been touching them. It's been jelly beans, peanut butter m&m eggs, sour gummies, chocolate. It's horrible. I need some motivation.
I joined a biggest loser competition in one of my groups and I thought that would be motivation enough. Maybe I should be participating more? I feel like I spend more time online than I am able to spend doing things though. I'm spending more time reading up on the challenges so then making time for the challenges makes it hard for me.. and trying to keep up with them because there are the 5 constant challenges and then daily or weekly challenges. I would like to get all the points for the challenges but I think it's just unrealistic.. so I am just going to do basics. I am going to start making sure I have at least 10 minutes of exercise each day and I am going to work on cutting out sugar.
I have decided that at the end of my blogs will be where I post my BLC stuff like goals, struggles, challenges, etc. That way if people don't want to read all that, they don't have to. Not that they have to anyways..
BLC #18 WUB Goals, Etc.
This week has been full of struggles on foods, water, and exercise.. so here are some of my goals.
1.) Cut sugars out of my diet.
- 1 SMALL sugary snack allowed daily (obviously can skip it if I want to!) or every other day so it doesn't backfire on me and make me eat to extremes.
2.) Eat more fruit and vegetables. My diet usually always involves stuff from the other food groups.. with little amounts of fruits and veggies. I want to try to get to eating clean.. so what better way to start.
- Eat at least 1 serving of fruit and 1 serving of vegetables each day.
3.) Drink more water.
- Drink at least 3 bottles of water a day. Preferably more but this will allow me to build myself up to the 8 glasses. I currently drink about 1 or 2. My water bottles are the 16.9oz bottles.
4.) More exercise!! I don't exercise every day.. or even every few days. I need more exercise. Enough said.
- Exercise at least 10-15 minutes every day.
