So I’m four days in and I’d like to say I’m a rock star at progress.
So far, I’ve started drinking way more water, no cokes despite desperately wanting one today.
I ran on Thursday and Saturday. I had my first lunch time run at work and it was awesome. BUT– I’m out of shape. For sure. And that’s ok because I didn’t expect to be ready to run a 5k in under 30 minutes. But I’ll get back into it. I missed it so much. I’m taking it easy. It may be 2 miles, but it’s 2 miles I didn’t run the last few months.
The biggest thing is that I stocked up on healthy groceries so I can at least snack smart. Yes, I know there’s crap in there, but that’s the kids’ granola bars. I’ve stopped eating flour tortillas. I’ve gotten good stuff to snack on like veggies.
Breakfast. Yes, I can’t get away from my tacos, but here’s my alternative: corn tortillas, avocado and some spicy chicken. Snack? Carrots and hummus. Apparently everyone thinks that’s gross but I’m still learning.
I’ve downloaded My Fitness Pal to start logging my food. It’s not fun. Seeing what you’re eating and how much you go over your daily is like a slap in the face. Yikes. But it’s made me more conscious. I think my biggest problem is that I eat. And don’t stop once I start snacking–another thing I’m trying to work on.
Maybe as I see how much I suck at staying close to a goal, I’ll get better about sticking to it. I’ve also realized when I’m home and close to food I eat like a pig.
So that’s me and that’s how I’m doing so far. How are you doing?
