It’s been nearly two weeks since I started my personal nutrition and fitness challenge. I’ve quickly learned that my habits were not as healthy as I had originally thought. Of course my fridge is full of fresh produce and organic meats but I’ve been fooling myself. I was eating three balanced meals each day… aaaand some other things. (A handful of almonds here, a handful of almonds there, bites of my kids breakfasts, lunches and dinners as well as the occasional cocktail, cookie, pastry or tasty treat.) All seemingly innocent but together pack a punch.
By simply planning each meal ahead of time and keeping track of what I eat, I’m already making progress. I’m totally motivated and don’t feel burdened by this commitment I’ve made. Instead of feeling deprived, I feel excited. There have certainly been a few days where I’ve craved sugar or more food but overall I feel more energized and clear headed.
The other major change I’ve made is to my workout schedule. I was working out 4-5 times a week. Now I’m only doing three 30-minute LAB workouts and aiming for 10,000 steps each day. I am actually missing my extra workouts but I’m trusting Brett and know discipline with my nutrition is how I will make progress. It’s been a challenge to get to 10,000 every single day but I’m close and working on it. Just throwing in a 20-minute walk with my family after dinner will usually kick me over the 10,000 step mark. This coming week I’m going to continue to focus on my nutrition. I feel like I’m just getting it dialed in and know that’s where my weakness lies. I’ve also really been focusing on this process being a complete LIFE CHANGE vs. me hitting my goal weight. I think wrapping my brain around the whole concept of good habits is essential to me getting to where I want to be and staying there.
