Wondering why I put 3 days together?? Well, it’s because I fell off. I didn't do my work out in the morning on Day 11 and that set me up for disaster. I told myself I would do it later, but did I…nope.
I chose FOOD over getting healthy. I went to a kids buffet. I didn't go too crazy on eating (mainly because their food sucks there) so thats good. But I am pretty disappointed that I didn't do the workout. On a high note, I did walk for an hour. I walked to pick up my kid from school, so I was somewhat active.
Day 12 was pretty much the same. Thankfully I got a little activity in. I went to the park both days and on Rest Day, I walked to the park that was a little over a mile away. Now, before you say, “Well at least you got some type of physical activity in” let me break the bad news to you. I ate like junk food was going out of style. I mean Day 12 I had Carls Jr. (which I don't even like them nor do I really like burgers) and on the Rest Day…it was an all out pig fest. I’m talking Doritos and cheese, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, Oreos and pizza. So sad even writing that. All that bad eating and didn't even work out.
This leads me to Day 13. I had zero interest in working out. Yes, I thought about how I didn't post and yea I felt bad, but not bad enough to get up and do something. Actually, I take that back. I walked to pick the kids up from school again, so that was about an hour out of my day. With that being said, I failed and failed miserable.
Tomorrow will be Day 14 and although I know I’m going to wake up not wanting to work out, I will. I have to. I am not seeing the results that I would assume you’d see on week 3. My eating is horrible and I got to get that in check. I’ve heard that with weight lost there is an 80/20 rule. What you eat is 80% of the journey and physical exercise is only 20% of it. So, I know I have to get my eating habits in check. Ideally, I would love to get to the point where I am eating to live verses living to eat. Eating has consumed me for years. I am not saying that you cant pig out here or there. I am saying that you don't have to do it everyday. Food really can be an addiction. I need to learn how and what to eat. What foods will sustain my life more and allow me to be around till I am old and grey with my kids and someday grandkids.
Sincerely the girl who slipped, but WILL get back up.
