Week two... meh.
The week started out with great. Our momentum was great, we got up and worked out. We even had a food schedule we were sticking to.... and then, we lost steam and ate WAY more than we should have.
I only met one of my goals this week. Which is better than meeting none. But then, things got sidetracked. I had a stressful week at work... and then they changed up my schedule again. The stress of the week, took over and I started eating my feelings. (Something I need to work on)
But, despite the stressful week, something wonderful did come out of this week. I have transitioned into a full-time writing job at work. I'll be working a night-time swing shift and a lot of the responsibility I had as a producer is gone. I'm really excited for this change. No more soul-numbing stress and more time to write, workout and spend time with my man and fur baby. I couldn't be happier with the change, and I know it will give me the push I need to move forward in my life plans.
Now, as for my fitness goals. I wanted to eat consciously add and extra workout day and take Khloe on a walk. I did none of those. But, that's ok. Not every week can be perfect. So, instead of dwelling on what I didn't do, I want to focus on what I did do this week:
- Found an awesome dog park near our house to take Khloe to before work so she can exercise
- Made it through two full body workouts without having to stop halfway through for breath
- Did my yoga routine with a little more ease
- Made a food schedule and a freezer full of healthy meals to take with me to work
I think those are some pretty great accomplishments. And now for my goals this week:
First-- Do 4 full-body workouts this week. (One of which I did this morning already!)
Second-- Stick to my meal plan.
Third-- Count my calories for at least one day
Finally-- Take Khloe to the dog park at least 2 days this week (one of which I've already done today!)
I feel really good about these goals, and my new schedule change. I'm hoping it will lead to a more positive lifestyle.
Have you ever had a week that started out with good intentions and ended with nothing really getting wrong? How did you make it through? And how do you stay motivated?
