Happy Monday! I would love to tell you I’m well rested and excited for the week but I’m not! I covered a 12 hour night shift at work on the weekend, had an Epicure party, got our taxes done, had a ton of things to do and generally didn’t take any time to recharge!
I’m hoping next weekend will be a bit different. Friday night I have an Epicure party, Saturday is Epicure’s Big Buisness conference and also my Birthday!! But Sunday I’m keeping open for some quiet time!!
So you’re probably wondering how my week went in terms of healthy living! Well this morning I weighed myself and I’m down 2 pounds! I’m happy with that because I know slow and steady truly does get things done!
My successes last week were definitely meal preping for my at work meals, increasing my water intake, and better portioning.
I was challenged with eating on the weekend because I didn’t prep. As much as I’d like to wing the weekends I don’t think that’s an option for me. I do best when I’ve thought things through and planned for my day. I’m going to try preping lunches and breakfasts for the weekend Thursday night this week.
I allowed myself a cheat snack on Friday and a cheat meal yesterday morning of pancakes and sausage. It was yummy. I’ve also been having 10 chocolate chips once a day to keep the cravings under control! So far so good! I refuse to fully deny myself of the things I love because I know that will lead to a full on binge.
I was happy to get in some good walks this past week and a few mini at home workouts. My goal is to get to the gym 3 times this week! I find getting to the gym since having Jacob is extremely tough for me but I acknowledge I need to make it a priority!
I wore my Fitbit a few days last week and I truly hate how it rubs my wrist! I need to get a different band if I want to wear it frequently.
I’ve included a few photos of my food choices and pictures from my walks! I’m trying to decide if I want to update daily or weekly! So many choices!
