I'm at peace with half a pound
Tuesday, October 22, 2013
I'm up half a pound this week and I decided that I'm okay with that. I know what I did wrong and how to correct it and in the grand scheme of things, I can live with that half pound.
Last week I didn't track my food and I ate some high fat and carb foods like pizza and cheeseburgers. (yes, cheeseburgers is plural) I decided I'm not going to beat myself up for it. I almost feel like I had been good for weeks and taking a "week off" isn't going to kill me. Especially since these good eating habits I'm trying to establish are intended for life.
I have to concentrate this week on making good choices. I need to bulk up on fruits and vegetables, limit fat and carbs, and focus on lean proteins.
I also have an exciting appointment tomorrow. I'm meeting with a personal trainer to discuss my workout routine and see if I can add some variety and bump it up a notch. I'm feeling good about my exercise but I think meeting with the trainer will help ensure I'm getting the most I can out of my time at the gym.
