Control. I must take back control.
My food has been good. I’m hovering around 1000 to 1300 calories per day but I need to get back control and get my butt to the gym on weekdays. It’s hard for me because I know that at work I’ll have a very long day ahead of me but I have to bite the bullet and get up and get to the gym before work.
I say that but it’s difficult.
Are you tired of my wining?
I know that you have to put your goals first. I know that – I need to do it. In all aspects – food and movement.
Even if it means that I don’t get to snuggle with my husband for 45 more minutes in the bed. I have to get up and get my butt to the gym. But the bed is so comfy and it’s so easy…. Focus, Nicole. Focus.
Do what needs to be done.
Goals – keep them in mind.
My day started with back to back meetings – again. No time for breakfast. I will start taking a Cliff bar or something that I can just open if this type of thing keeps happening. I can’t go until noon without food.
I drank my coffee at 11:30 – right before lunch. Thankfully my thermos kept it hot. Score!
I brought leftovers from dinner last weekend. Basil pesto pasta with olives and artichokes. It was awesome. I had a hard boiled egg for protein.
At about 4:00 I was ready for a snack. These yogurts are my absolute favorite. They are just the right size and before you get tired of eating it – it’s gone. I paired it with an apple. No real rhyme or reason to my food today.
I got home pretty late and the family had already eaten dinner so I grabbed myself a plate and ate while we chatted. Taco salads are one of my absolute favorite meals. Yummmm!
My Sparkpeople log for today:
I’m off to get in bed early to get myself to the gym in a timely manner tomorrow morning. I am curious to know your answer to this question:
How do you keep yourself motivate to get to the gym when life is out of control around you?
