Daily workouts= Check
Reduced snacking= Check
No alcohol= Check
I’m loving the gym right now. Normally I’m a bigger fan of workout DVDs, and I find myself looking forward to those rather than my trip to the gym... but not this week! I love my new routine of going to the gym first thing in the morning. It’s so energizing, and it’s also nice to have more time in the evening to cook a healthy meal or do other things on my to-do list. (I am still sticking to my current workout schedule though- 3 days at the gym, 2 days of workout videos, and one long run, but I think I will be changing it up next month.)
As for snacking, I decided to try something new… This week I made sure to have easily accessible LOW-CAL healthy snacks around, like cut up carrots, a cut up apple, or cherry tomatoes. This way when I just want to munch on something I can do it without putting a major dent in my caloric intake- like I was doing with my delicious protein bars.
As for alcohol, I am still drinking wine on the weekends, but I have found that drinking=eating more. I guess I always knew that was the case, but now that I’m tracking things and trying to be more aware of what I put in my body, it amazes me how much more I consume on the days I drink. So lately it hasn't been a struggle or even something I desire during the week, because no alcohol=more control= eating/being healthier.
So that’s just a mini-update. Hope everyone is having a great, healthy week!
