That Was A Bad Idea
OK, so... I sorta fell off the goal wagon last week and I can totally tell. Both of my kids were sick (not with the same thing and thankfully, not with the stomach flu) and I felt like I was getting sick. I threw my goals out the window and that was definitely a bad idea. I felt like crap because I was eating junk and not exercising; I also gained some weight. Not a lot of weight but I don't want the trend to continue. April's goal is to eat a salad with lunch every day. Do you know what makes that really difficult? Not having any lettuce. I didn't buy lettuce the last time I went grocery shopping because I thought I already had a bag. Turns out that bag went furry waiting for me to eat it. We fed it to the garbage. I'm recommitting to my goals this week. I had an orange with my breakfast and am stopping by the grocery store on my way home to get some lettuce. I'm refocusing on my water goal and have a plan to walk tonight. This is normally the time when I let go of my New Year's resolutions. But I'm determined to not do that this year. I want to be a healthy, fit, non-stressed out person. To achieve that, I need to stick with my goals. I have noticed when I'm really sleep-deprived, drinking a lot of ice water actually gives me more energy than drinking a lot of pop. I keep reminding myself that even though it's a little thing, it's a sign I'm on the right path with my health.
