All week I’ve ignored my fitness journey. I’ve pined to work this weight loss sponsor (who just confirmed today we will be working together yeah!) so I keep putting off working out and watching what goes into my mouth. I keep thinking, no I’ll just wait until my fitness coach tells me what to do.
While my diet is pretty clean and I eat primarily protein, veggies, fruit and fat, I find myself autopilot eating handfuls of dark chocolate chips and jo jos from the supermarket deli. Last night, I decided I need to put up or shut up. If I’m going to reach my goal, I can’t wait for someone to do it for me. I have to make it as much of a commitment as mothering my child.
So I signed up for fitday.com and tracked what I ate for the day and realized I was eating more carbs than I thought. I’ve also been guilty of just skipping food for lunch and splurging on a café latte with heavy whipping cream instead which, yes, keeps me full, but doesn’t really contribute to the vitamins and minerals I need as a nursing mother.
I’ve been walking for exercise with my husband however, when it’s a rainy drizzly mess, which it is 75% of time, I end up sitting on my computer instead of turning to a workout video. I walked 2 times this week and ideally I want to work out at least 5 times a week.
So basically, two weeks in, I’ve blown a lot of smoke when I could have been 14 days into a fitter me. I will give myself a little slack with the Little teething but, it will always be something with a growing infant.
Today, I’m working out.
No more excuses.
Today, I’m going to eat 3 meals and track what I eat.
Today, I’m going to start the habit of putting my health first.
I’m going to open my journal on fitday and put a button up for all to see today!
