First week on my journey back.

Sunday, September 08, 2013

Soooooooooo today I begin my second week on my journey back to healthy. I wanted to start off the week by reviewing last week and looking at things I did well and what I could have done better.

The one thing I feel like I did not do my best at this week is weights. I wanted to do a weight circuit M W F . I only did it Monday. So to correct this this week I plan on doing it Tuesday and Thursday. Since I don't have to rush off to work on those two days, I won't feel as rushed.

I was starting to think that this week was not the best week to begin my journey, I suffer from PMDD ( PMS on steroids) and the week before my TOM I am chronically exhausted and binge eat like crazy. I struggled a little with cravings this week but found that since I was eating small meals every couple hours they weren't as bad. I was tired this week and usually drug my butt to the gym with a considerable lack of enthusiasm. But I did it all 5 days. I did not let my feelings dictate my actions. I did make sure to get as much water as possible every day. I stayed within my calorie range even when we went to cracker barrel for Sunday dinner last week. They just started offering a fit menu and I ordered a breakfast choice off of that. I did not eat any fast food this week. I packed healthy snacks for work. i discovered luna bars. Peanut honey Pretzel is so very good and packed with nutrition. Great on the go snack.

The scale went up and down all week. I ended the week with a 3lb. loss. I was expecting more, but overall I was pleased with that. I ate healthy and moved more. These are the tools for lifelong change.

This week my plan is this.

1) keep getting enough water (8 cups minimum)

2) keep within my calorie range

3) hit the gym atleast 5 days this week

4) do the weight circuit tues, and Thursday.

5) incorporate more veggies into my diet this week, and greek yogurt.

log on spark eveyday.
