Today, I woke up, I did my normal routine before my weekly Thursday weigh-in. I looked at the number and saw 182, a 2 pound gain from last week. I was bummed, but not surprised.
My week was all right. My goals as always are Eat Clean(er), Move more, Refresh daily.
Eat Clean(er)–After having no bread since January 10th (the first 21 days were through fasting and after that I decided to keep it out because of how much better I was feeling). This past weekend, I thought, once won’t hurt. Man was I wrong, once I let one in, another followed, and another, and so on.
Next Steps: I am on a journey again to cut out bread. I have kept to my fast of no pop. However, on Monday I’m going to switch up my fast. I will be doing a 21 day of eating only fruit, vegetables, and nuts. I will only be drinking water and tea (with honey, no sugar, no cream). The main reason that I’m not starting this today is because my husband and I are planning on doing our Valentine’s outing this weekend, so I’d really like to be able to go out and do something without having to limit our choices too much. However, I won’t have any bread or pop while we’re out.
Move More: I’ve tried to keep myself up and moving at work lately. That has helped my energy stay up where it needed to be throughout work.
Next Steps: If you read Meredith‘s post today, she has started the Couch to 5K running plan. My sister has mentioned that she’s got an old Iphone I can use to do this challenge. I will be working on this journey starting ASAP.
Refresh Daily: Almost all of my studies are getting done consistently each day. The only one that has seemed to fall through the cracks is the Paul study that I’m doing with two of my friends.
Next Steps: Find a way to work the Paul study into my daily routine. Get up earlier and do my own version of Hello Mornings.
Here’s looking to a better week next week!
