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!

Break 2.0

I kinda fell off today.

No, I take that back.

I didn’t fall off. I just took a 2nd break that technically I shouldn’t have taken – only with the workout.  I through myself off schedule when I went grocery shopping after work.  I figured by the time I cooked and worked out, it’d be too late to eat.  SO I decided that Saturday wouldn’t be rest day.  Friday, Saturday, skip Sunday and do it all over on Monday (with Thursday NOT being a rest day).

Dinner: Turkey burgers. They were bomb! But I didn’t make them. I probably should have.  My bud flavored it with seasoning salt and A-1 sauce.  I don’t normally use too much seasoning salt b/c well, it’s salt. But it was good.  It was juicy enough that I didn’t have to add cheese, mayo, mustard, ketchup…no condiments. Just a bun and the burger.

I’ll probably skip the snack tonight. I’m feeling kind of guilty for not working out and for “pigging” out on the turkey burger. -_-

No meditation yet. IT’S COMING THOUGH!!! It’s coming. I may have to wake up a little earlier or something.

I guess that’s it for today. 4 days in to the 21 habit-forming behavior. Let’s see if that theory works.
