I started working out about 6 weeks ago at least 4-5 days per week (half cardio, half strength).
I've been eating very healthy - lots of veggies, some fruits, measured whole grains, lean proteins.
I've been letting myself have several drinks with friends on weekends - either wine or vodka mixed with diet soda. It didn't help with the holidays the past few weeks, either. Suddenly, Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve extended those weekends another couple days.
And, I haven't been tracking my food on weekends. A big mistake, and it's easy to go over even if I'm eating the 'right' foods.
Well, duh - when I stepped on the scale for my Monday weigh-in, I had gained 1.5 pounds this week. Duh. I was EASILY undoing all week's work with several cocktails or glasses of wine Friday and Saturday...and sometimes Sunday...and a few Mondays in there.
So, this weekend I'm vowing to skip the booze. And if I choose to have a drink or two on a weekend, I have to log it in my tracker. I'm vowing to log my food on weekends, too.
Sometimes have to tighten in those reigns a bit and get back in focus.
