I'm posting this blog to hold myself accountable not only to myself and my goals but also to my many SparkPeople friends/family/teammates who have been there for me with support, motivation, and encouragement.
I found the last month to be challenging at times. I need to add in more exercise as this last month the only exercise I got was what I do at work. Loading and unloading boxes from bins to carts and back to bins. It involves a lot of lifting and walking from backroom of the store to the sales floor while pulling a cart that holds the merchandise to where the products need to be put on shelves to be purchased. I need to add in ST as I can feel it in my arms, shoulders, and neck after lifting boxes at the end of the day.
Need to try and drink more plain water. Relying on Crystal Light or the generic brands of it to flavor the water.
I have been bringing my lunches, snacks, and bottled water to work each day. Find planning what I am going to eat ahead of time helps me stay on track food-wise. The McD's that was in the store has shutdown and is going to be replaced by something else. This has actually helped me as I was eating there for breakfast and lunch almost every day. Not to mention the amount of sweet tea I was drinking daily (was getting a large for each meal).
Been watching my portion sizes and making better choices when we do eat out.
On the whole, I think I'm doing pretty well.
