Yesterday, approximately 75% of my calories came from the candy drawer at work 🙈🤷🏼♀️ It was just one of those days. The old me - 2 years ago me - would have been so disappointed and discouraged and probably would have given up on the whole week!
But, now I’m able to see past the “opps that was a lot of candy” and recognize that today is a totally new day! Yesterday’s mistakes don’t control the person I am today.
And the person I am today is well prepared! I have my nutritious breakfast shake and a full days worth of healthy snacks and lunch!! #newdaynewme
I use my phone alarms as much as possible to keep myself on track. From wake up, workout, eat, to things like take meds, pick up mail and feed dogs (lol)
Anyone else not able to remember crap and have to do something like this?
I have been thoroughly exhausted lately. Waking up at crazy hours of the night unable to fall back to sleep for hours or not being able to wake up at all.
Today was another one of those days. Getting up at 5am just didn’t happen, neither did 6am. 6:30am came rolling around and I jumped out of bed because I knew I needed to get my workout in. I started late, 6:45 and of all days, today was a long leg day. 🤦🏻♀️ I struggled through, missing out on go-go juice due to the time restraints, but got it done.
It’s not about being motivated all the time, it’s about being disciplined enough to know you have to do it for yourself. I’m about to get some more coffee but I’m glad my workout was completed this morning.
Now, LET’S GO YANKEES!!!!
day 3 || week 2 || shoulders
3 rounds of 2 lifts and a 30 second HIIT move
last 3 minutes of the workout is all core
love it 💕 •
last week I was eating all the sweets and treats I could get my hands on
if I had one treat, I’d use it as an excuse to eat another because I already had one, so why not have more?
Sunday morning I stepped on the scale for the first time in weeks
when I don’t eat well, I avoid the scale because I’m afraid of what it will show
after seeing those 4 numbers on the scale Sunday morning, I challenged myself to stick to my nutrition guide, you know the one that I hadn’t followed in weeks... I did it.
I evicted 2 pounds between Sunday morning and Monday morning •
could I do it again on Monday?
could I stick to my nutrition guide again?
I did! until dinner when Ryan brought home an apple pie from a student
Monday after dinner we each had 2 pieces
the difference between Monday and last week was
on Monday I stopped eating after the pie
it was a treat but now I was done and full
last week I would have continued to eat, even though I wasn’t hungry
I would have reached for the chocolate chips in the cupboard •
I was hesitant to step on the scale Tuesday morning because I was expecting the number to go up after eating pie
I was wrong
it evicted another 2 pounds
I can lose weight and enjoy dessert once in a while? I like this!
Tuesday after dinner we each had another 2 pieces to celebrate the birthday boy! •
do I dare step on the scale Wednesday morning, after eating 4 pieces of delicious pie in the past two days?
anxiety set it
just do it
did it and another pound evicted! •
last week I avoided the scale because I enjoyed so many treats, I was scared of the number so I just kept eating even when I wasn’t hungry
this week I’m using the scale as a tool
if I didn’t step on the scale Tuesday morning after eating that pie, this week would have turned into last week with enjoying all the treats
my point: don’t let the scale define you, don’t avoid it but don’t obsess over it, use it as a resource to guide you on your journey
much love, 💕
the girl who has ALWAYS disagreed with the scale until I learned how to use it
Today I had to go to Walgreens to pick up a couple things. I found myself in the candy isle and I was this close to buying myself something. Before I started my journey I was addicted to sugar. I used to think I had to have dessert after dinner every night. I still find myself almost 14 months later having days where I crave it. It’s honestly something I think I will always struggle with. Anyone else struggle with sugar cravings? #sugaraddict
