So you’re catching me at the end of a pretty crappy week. The scale seems to be laughing at me right now as it tells me that I’ve only lost 1 pound this week, but I’m actually feeling lucky that I lost that much. I went off the wagon twice this week. I’m not going to use stressful circumstances as an excuse, so I’m looking forward now to righting the ship this week.
Things I learned in week 2:
1. Exercise is awesome. I managed to get several quality walks in this week, and each one lifted my spirits, cleared my head, and helped me to focus in on my goals for a while. They just need to happen more frequently now. This week, I am going to start in on the workout plans that my bro Justin A. has been sending my way. Really excited!
2. Having healthy ready-to-eat food options at hand throughout the day is going to be important for me. I’ve found a handful of healthy meal recipes that I’m really enjoying, but they all require some time to prepare. Both of my failures this week came when I was over-hungry, tired, and not up to cooking at all. Sooooo, keeping some easier options around may have prevented some dietary mishaps.
Anyways, I’m hopeful about week 3 and ready to get after it!
