I'm still going at it but took an unexpected day off because I wasn't feeling good.
Fri: day off (yay!)
Sat: no exercise =(
Sun: 45 min circuit training
Mon: 45 min elliptical
On Saturday I had a lovely wedding to go to and the reception was at a restaurant known for their buffet. To say the least, I ate too much in too little time so I was sick, sick, sick for the rest of the day. It even carried over to Sunday but I manage to get in my circuit training in the afternoon.
So last night, I got on the computer to check some emails and catch up on my favorite blogs. The first blog I pulled up was from Jen, A Prior Fat Girl. It was a pretty normal post for her but as I got to the end of the post, something clicked inside of me. She wrote:
"I used to just nod my head at people who made a bunch of food towards the beginning of the week, like “yeah yeah, that sounds nice” but I PROMISE it sets you up for success."
She is so absolutely right!
When I was consistently losing weight last year, it had a lot to do with meal planning. The minute I read that sentence (I didn't even finish the rest of the post because I was so motivated) I shut down my computer, and headed to the grocery store to buy ingredients for my planned week of meals... at 10:15 pm.
I quickly avoided the drunk people looking for a late night snack in the store, grabbed a bunch of stuff and headed back home. By 11:45 I was done with my lunches for the rest of the week and tonight Anthony and I will cook dinner for the rest of the week. THANKS, JEN!
Failing to plan is planning to fail... keep it in mind, people!
