I need to stay honest and accountable, especially if I want to stay on track.
For the week of June 20, 2011, I made many mistakes when it came to dieting and staying on track with my fitness program.
I exercised twice, well, two and one-half times. On Monday, I completed my Fit Test with reasonable results. I wanted to do better.
On Tuesday, I cried about stuff, and couldn’t finish my workout.
On Wednesday, I got half way through Pure Cardio before giving up. (One-half!)
On Thursday, I finished Cardio Recovery, even though I did not deserve any recovery from cardio.
On Friday and Saturday, I was so busy with work, grocery shopping and spending time with family that I completely skipped my workouts (and blogging). Good job Shae.
On the healthy eating front, I did well until Friday. First, I ate cookies at work. (Darn it!)
Then, Husband and I went to Hu-Hot Mongolian Grill with a friend. The sodium and oil content were through the roof! After dinner, we had dessert at Orange Leaf and ate frozen yogurt… that came in barrels.
True! I did not have to fill my barrel full of bad-for-me food stuffs, but I did. Ugh.
At the end of the night, I did not feel great. To say the least.
On Saturday, I ate a good breakfast, but had fried chicken in Olpe, Kansas (no I didn’t know it existed), with a large portion of my husband’s family.
I should have ordered a salad! But the place was called the Chicken House.
For dinner, we ate at Sister-In-Law’s house and had burgers, chips and potato salad. (And I also got in a little retail therapy.)
It’s Sunday, which means it’s laundry day, and I’m eating cookies. Can I stop myself? Yes. But what am I doing?
Laundry Note: Stain sticks do not work on deep, set-in stains. Waste of money! I really hope I did not ruin Husband’s favorite pants… My shirt was a goner in the beginning. :)
My honesty. It’s really not that pretty, is it?
When I make dinner tonight, I’ll make sure I keep the fat and sodium content down and the healthy, nutrient-rich content up!
To make up for my serious fitness sins, I plan on redoing Week 3 of Insanity at the end of Month 1. Instead of an eight-week program (that will probably be 16 before I see any results), I will do a nine-week program to make up for the parts I skipped.
I have a resolution for the next weeks of my diet and fitness journey: Do not get upset. Just be happy. Be happy all the time, and I will do better.
That’s a good goal, and I might be able to love my workout if I can be happy.
