Oh! Hi there...
Tuesday, May 31, 2016
Yep... did it again, but not as bad this time. It was February the last time I logged on, but it's only been about 3 months this time. ;)
On the plus side, for the past 2 months I've been sticking to a healthy / low calorie diet (diet = way of eating, not a temporary "diet" diet). I have lost about 8 pounds, which is good, but I'm already feeling like I'm losing motivation and focus. This past weekend was probably the worst, celebrating a graduation (went overboard at dinner), then having a few too many sweet treats over the weekend.
But, there's no point it beating myself up about it any more. Instead of derailing completely I am getting back on track, and am also committing to start exercising this week. I'm planning a very doable 2 days (Tuesday and Thursday) beginners bodyweight workout that won't take much time and that I can handle even with the busy week I have planned. This weekend I will also be doing quite a bit of yard work to keep me moving.
I have been doing well with most of my eating because I have been making a meal plan on the weekend and then using that to make a grocery list before I head to the store. So in order to start adding in exercise, I think I will also plan what days and even what specific workout I will do for the next week along with my meal plan. That way I can make a specific plan that will fit in my schedule for that week instead of feeling like a failure when I set a rigid "all-or-nothing" plan I'm supposed to stick to for weeks on end that might not always work with what life throws at me. I've tried a lot of different plans, and I think this might just be one that works for me.
So, that being said, I plan to update myself on how this goes (and sooner than in another 3 months!) lol
