Recently Iíve had a lot going on in my life. As soon as I got home from school Iím bombarded with work and spend most of my mornings outside on the farm taking care of the animals. That wonít be nearly as bad once the kids are finished with school and will be home for the summer to help. My entire body is covered in bruises from the goats, and I havenít even had time to organize my room since Iíve been home. There is literally stuff piled up everywhere and it is driving me crazy. I havenít exactly had the time or the space to do actual workouts, but helping at the barn is a lot of work, and I go on walks everyday also as a form of exercise and to help clear my mind. Hopefully in the upcoming days I will get my room finished and have some of my stuff stored in the attic so that I am able to do other workouts in my room. I would love to start and finish the 30 day shred this summer, but more than anything I just want to feel confident about my body again and I know that starts with nutrition. Being from my family it doesnít really help because there is always junk food around the house and when itís there and I know itís there I canít stop myself from eating. I need to work on my self- control. Itís not even that Iím hungry itís just that I know itís in there and so I want it and then my mouth starts watering and ultimately I just plain give in. I did better today than I have the past few days but I still didnít do well. Two of my biggest downfalls are probably carbs and sweets. I have got to get this under control. I know that I do not want to cut them out from my life completely because that would not be healthy or realistic in the long run, but I do want to have more self-control when it comes to my eating. My eating is going to be what I work on the most this summer, because I know that it is my biggest problem. I am going to post my goals for next month today but instead of starting them at the beginning of June I am going to start them now.
Self-Love- Keep a journal.
Record all foods consumed in this journal as well as drinks, weights and any feelings that may go along with eating the foods. Also, if it is possible log all food data into spark people to see how the calories I consume measure up with the number of calories I should actually be eating.
Nutrition- No soda or fried foods
I have done this before and I have seen a huge change in the way that I feel and so I want to do it again. I tend to eat a lot of fried foods and drink a lot of soda. The soda I drink tends to be diet, but regardless it is not good for me.
Fitness- Work out at least 30 minutes per day
Do some type of workout for at least 30 minutes per day. It can be anything from walking to riding a stationary bike to doing zumba or even the 30 day shred.
I am also going to try to blog as much as possible throughout the month so that I have people to keep me accountable for my goals and my unhealthy actions. I know that I can do this. It is going to take a lot of hard work and support, but I can do this. For now I am going to pick up a book and read because I am having a strong craving for a pb&j that I really need to resist. I will not give in. Have a good night everyone!
