Hi Spark Friends.
I hope all of you enjoyed your weekend.
For the weekend, I went out of town to see the South Carolina Gamecocks play the Kentucky Wildcats (baseball). This was my first time at an SC baseball game, and I absolutely enjoyed every minute of it. I usually only go to the football games, but over the last couple of years, Iíve somehow become a baseball fan. I guess I love watching people be active since becoming more active myself.
As for being healthy myself, it was a couple of hits and a lot of misses this weekend. Here are the positives:
1. I drank *some* water.
2. I completed both workouts that I had planned for this weekend.
Here are the cons:
1. I got back on the soda train this weekend.
2. I did not choose to eat any healthy foods at all.
3. I had gluten, dairy, and sugar (and lots of it!).
4. #3 actions caused me to feel crummy, moody, and sleepy.
5. My legs are *so* sunburnt. Ouch!
By Sunday afternoon, my body was not a happy camper. I was feeling terrible. I felt so sleepy and crummy that I wanted to miss the last baseball game of the series which wasnít like me at all. After doing that cleanse, I am well aware that my body doesnít do well with sugar, gluten, and dairy. Iíve been *trying* to limited it as much as I can. Unfortunately, these three things are what I crave the most, and I donít have much self-control in the food department.
Vacations and weekends have always been trouble areas when it came to being healthy. For some reason, I allow myself to do whatever. Iím not really sure how to deal with weekends and vacations when it comes to being healthy. Itís tough because I have a boyfriend who likes to eat out a lot, and when I say ďget what you want, I am going to eat at homeĒ, he kind of gets irritated. Plus, when we are going out of town, it seems just easier to throw out the healthy eating and grab fast food.
Even though I know I should not be, I am beating myself up over this weekendís food choices. Iíve been doing much better than in the past, but this weekend revealed that bad habits can come back. I donít want that in my life anymore. I want to feel good about the choices I make. I want to have self-control, and if I want to indulge a little, then I want it to be a decision I made instead of an impulse.
Iíd love to hear how you treat weekends and vacations when it comes to being healthy. Any suggestions?
