Good news! I’m off to a great start. I exercised 5 days out of 7 last week. I have quite a way to go, but I’m working on making exercise a habit once again. My eating habits are still horrible, but I’m working on it also. My plan to tackle this obstacle is meal prepping. I’m planning on surviving off of salads and smoothies this week. I’m trying to immerse myself in healthy eating this upcoming week.
My daughter’s karate schedule changed by 30 minutes on Mondays and Wednesdays. I need to try to leave work by 3:45 so I can pick her up by 4:15 to get her to karate by 4:30. Her class lasts an hour so we’ll leave by 5:30, and we’ll have to pick up her brother by 6:00. We’ll be cutting it close so we may not make it tomorrow. If I go to the gym, we won’t make it until 6:30. I already know if we go to karate; we won’t make it to the gym. I’m planning to get up at 5 in the morning and exercise at home. No excuses when it comes to getting healthy. We shall see how this week goes.
My meal prep this week consists of buffalo chicken salad, boiled eggs, fruit, smoothies, and protein shakes. My weekend was busy so I didn’t have time to do a lot of cooking. I made taco meat for my children. They’ll survive off of tostados, tacos, and taco salads this week. My daughter likes salad also so she’ll likely have a couple of salads for dinner as well.
I’m really going to have to work on not eating snacks at bedtime. I’m considering intermittent fasting this week. I’ll let you know how it goes. I think I’ll eat my first meal at noon or a little bit after so no more food at 8. I believe this will help hold me accountable for my choices. Let’s get it!
