I’m not going to lie: I did not meet my goals this week. Gasp! I know, I know. I was doing so well, and then the weekend came and those 2 treats I talked about turned into about 5. Yes, that does happen sometimes. My overwhelming love for chocolate becomes, well, overwhelming.
I hung my head in shame for a minute, but now is not the time to wallow. It’s time to lift my chin, put my shoulders back, and face the week.
1. No treats on weekdays – it’s easier if I just make treats off limits most days. One treat per day on the weekend. I’m planning these now so that I don’t get carried away again and polish off handfuls of mini chocolate bars from the kids’ Halloween stashes. Saturday: 1 chocolate bar. Sunday: 1 cupcake.
2. Workout 3 times: Monday 6 a.m. – spin. Thursday 9 a.m. – run and full-body workout. Saturday 9 a.m. – bike or run and 300 workout. However, if I don’t work out at the times listed, that’s still okay. Just need to fit them in.
3. Food journal at least 4 days this week, including AT LEAST 1 weekend day – just to make sure I’m fully aware of what I’m eating on the weekend. As I journaled today, I realized just how many extra calories I take in when I’m around the house, more due to availability of food and a desire to distract myself from studying than from hunger.
4. Meal plan tonight. Just needs to be done.
Heading out to the neighbours for an impromptu potluck. Have a great night!
