A chaotic, crazy, busy week.
Leads to a lot of reflecting and "figuring it all out".
*I turn 30 in around 3 weeks. I'm not dealing with this. I'm in denial. I am anxious and frustrated.
A. I didn't accomplish my Master's degree by 30 as I had "planned" (which, come on, I really didn't plan because I would have provided the goal more attention)
B. My weight is still not under control. My exercise isn't a priority. My eating still isn't where I want it to be.
C. Wedding isn't planned. No.Where.Near.
So... no gain this week, which is positive. I am hopeful I can still accomplish the 10 pound loss by vacation/wedding (friend's not mine).
*I got accepted to Grad school.
(but I have now changed my mind-- I think I want to pursue the MSW and not the MA in psych)
*I AM in CONTROL of my food intake.
*I AM in CONTROL of my day and how I allow it to be spent.
I have gone to the chiropractor this week-- first three sessions were scary to me-- kind of violent-- the manipulation of the neck freaks me out. I think I'm seeing some sort of improvement-- I don't feel so achy as in the past. So I'll give it a few more weeks and see what happens.
My plan for the next 3 weeks:
Healthy breakfasts: oatmeal worked so well for me a few years ago. Why not use what has worked *so well* in the past? Protein pancakes? Oat pancakes? Morningstar Sausage Links. Eat something healthy.
PACK LUNCH FOR WORK!!!
Drink my water. Eat my lunch-- on time! Not at 3 p.m.!
Snacks-- hard boiled eggs, cottage cheese, fruit/veggies
Dinners: batch cook on the weekend, plan meals, use leftovers
I want to get my minutes in.
My goal: start with 15 minutes a day.
Make time to sweat. Get the stress out. Make it a priority!
Treadmill for a mile a day minimum!
Hit the pavement!
30 day shred!
I really want a heart rate monitor. I've been researching them, but don't know what to buy. I know Polar has awesome products, but I found the monitor, but where do I find the chest strap? I just got too overwhelmed and gave up.
Here's to 10 pounds over the next month and getting control back of my life.
