In a previous post, I talked about goals I need to keep up with. I remember when I lost my first twenty pounds, I was tracking what I was eating and walking at least 30 minutes a day. And so really, I am back to basics. Back to tracking food, thinking about what I am eating before I eat it, and at the end of everything: TALKING. I have to talk through my frustrations whether via my blog or with friends. Mary and I had a GREAT conversation in my car in the parking lot at Lake Como after brunch on Saturday after the race and I was talking about my obsession with food and how much I’ve always struggled with a healthy relationship with food and you know what? That was the FIRST time I’d heard the words escape my lips. A huge part of me did not want to admit that I had an unhealthy relationship with food. But now that I can admit it, it is time to move on from it and gain a much healthier relationship; food and I.
I will hopefully do well tracking my food this week. And, I am going to start each day with a big glass of water before moving onto coffee. Oh, coffee, you necessary evil! And here is my workout plan for the week:
Monday – After work, strength training and cardio.
Tuesday – Before work, cardio, cardio, cardio.
Wednesday – Before work, Strength training.
Thursday – Before work, Strength training.
Friday – REST
Satruday – Cardio, cardio, cardio.
Sunday – REST.
I think my biggest pain point is eating, so I have my lunches planned out as well. Except for the birthday lunch today with co-workers to celebrate two birthdays. Hopefully there will be healthy choices for me. I’ve done it before and I can do it again.
Here is to a fantastic week!
