Restarting when i never planned to quit.
Friday, February 14, 2014
The age old excuse time.
I returned to education in september 2012 and with a family etc... i stopped making time to exercise.... I exercised in the summer break but the months of inactivity resulted in poor eating habits creeping in. So fast forward to the present day and i have gained 28lbs , started smoking again and have a daily diet coke and coffee habit that would put many to shame.
This year i need to get a hold on this , im an all or nothing person and to be frank i eat better and make better choices when i exercise. I'm not a person that can diet and not exercise in fact i would rather exercise and make gradual diet changes.
So the current situation is that i leave the house at 6am and return three days at 7pm and an 2pm the other two days. I have alot of studying to fit in and parenting responsibilities. I used to have the luxury of working part time and this enabled me to plan healthy meals on a day to day ad hoc basis.. NOT MORE!!!.
So to restart i need to readjust, I need to workout in the morning and the workouts need to be short and effective ,i started t25 on monday. My biggest issue is lack of preparation on the meal front so sundays will require that i prep an clean dinner for myself that can be ate on the monday and tuesday. Lunches and snacking at uni have been my biggest taboo, i plan to rotate soups and salad plus fruit snacks that i will take with me.
I quite angry that its took me so long to readdress these issues, however if i dont act now its going to be harder.
Goals to be completed by march.
coffee once a day
no more diet coke
