Planning is so important.
Wednesday, January 16, 2013
The last few days I have only been mediocre. I wasn't tracking, I was being spur of the moment with my meals. Like the rest of my life, I have been very disorganized. I have maintained exercising. Mostly running. I don't exactly have a strength plan (how I dream of hiring a trainer).
I get weighed tomorrow so I will see what's up then. Or down. A girl can dream. I haven't been really "bad", I just haven't been paying attention. First order of business is:
start PLANNING MEALS.
It doesn't have to be extravagant, it's just that I've noticed that I delay making decisions so by the time I'm ready to eat I'm so hungry that I'm willing to lower my standards. Was I planning a healthy fruit and veggie infused protein smoothie, but the counter is too cluttered to make said smoothie? Oh, I guess I'll have this yogurt. Ok I'll have another. Ooh and an apple. And a coffee. Yea. That's a well balanced meal. I just need a bit of structure so I know when and what I'm eating. I've noticed that works best for me.
I don't think I'm doing horrible with my fitness goals. Of course, my bar is pretty low. This is to ensure that I make my goals and feel like a winner.
(Wish we had one of those #1 foam hands for sporting events in the emoticon choices. One day.) It's not cheating if I'm getting it done. A little is always better than none.
I'll check back later. I think it might be nap time.
