HUMP DAY!!!

I did okay-ish.  We did okay-ish. 

So, I’ve been talking about setting goals and making them realistic.  But there’s something I missed:

Schedules

It’s so important to set a schedule.  That is the lesson I’ve been learning this week.  Last week was fine. We weren’t too busy, food was planned out.  This week was more of a struggle with the change in schedules.  My buddy and I didn’t really fall off.  It’s more like we fell back.

For example, instead of the three meals and three small snacks we’ve reverted back to two meals when we can grab it.  SEE!!! NOT PRODUCTIVE!  Today I ate a very late breakfast (brunch, really) and it took me almost three hours to eat it.  Why? Eating while I worked. NOT smart.  I know my buddy text and said he had only eaten one meal…that was at 7pm and it was a Subway sandwich.  Neither one of us have good excuses.  It just happened.  Now with his new, 2nd job the workout schedule will change.

Actually: It doesn’t have to.  My schedule is the same so I have no real excuse for not sticking to it.  This is for MY health and MY work will make it happen – partner or not.

Thursday is a new day though.  Everyday is another day to start fresh and fix mistakes.

Week Two and Still Going…

Today marks 7 days since I began this journey.  I am one 7 days closer to my goal and 14 days closer to forming a “habit”.  We kinda slacked last week.  We didn’t workout the full four days like we were supposed to and…I had french toast. It was sooooo good!

Mondays are abs and arms day.  Needless to say my arms feel a little noodly. But my abs are fine. For now, I guess.

I’m a smoker.  My workout buddy and I are smokers. He more than I.  I’m not going to say I’m quitting, but I decided it was high time to cut back.  If I smoke on average 7 cigarettes a day, then for now I’ll knock it down to 5 a day and eventual less and less and yeah, at some point I won’t be a smoker anymore!

Sugar:

sweeteners

OHHHH I’ve been craving sugar.  Yesterday I was so tempted to go out and buy something sweet and bad for me.  What stopped me? I couldn’t decide what to buy.  And also I knew I’d be so mad at myself for cheating.

Meditation – it will happen. It WILL happen!

Keep Rolling, Rolling, Rolling

It’s SATURDAY!!!!  Almost one full week since I began this journey.  Almost 7 full days since I made a decision to be a better me.  I’m not sure I’d call today a cheat day or not. I didn’t have sweets, I kept the calories fairly low and I worked out.

Back and Abs.

Tomorrow is an early day and then just an early week at work all around.  I did the worst thing I could do: I brought my work home with me! And then didn’t touch it -_-.  It’ll get done. Tomorrow is another day, right?

What’s on the workout menu tomorrow? Chest, Arms, Cardio and Shoulders.

I don’t know. I feel pretty good. I’m proud of me. I’m proud of my workout buddy. Yeah, we slip up but, it’s a work in progress.  All I can say is that if you have a goal, do all you can to get to it.  Of course it’s important that you make sure those goals are realistic.  The last thing you want is some out-of-reach aspiration and do all this hard work to get there, not get there, quit.  No.  I learned a long time ago it was important to set your goals and then set subgoals (those little things you need to do to get to the finish line).  But then, don’t stop there.  What happens when that goal is complete? Do you just … stop?

No.

You make another one.  So. My Goal 2.1 is: after reaching an acceptable weight, I have to maintain it. Sounds simple, but it isn’t.

How’s it rolling world? What are you doing for you?
