To write this post.
Since I’m currently locked out of the house.
I completely forgot my parents had a doctors appointment this afternoon. So I left work early and realize that no one is at the house and the storm door in the front is also locked so I can’t even use my keys to get in. And so here I am waiting patiently for my parents and the kids to return. I’m glad that weather wise the sun is shining and there’s not a single rain cloud the sky thank goodness because I wouldn’t be very happy if I had to sit on the doorstep in the rain getting wet.
So how did my day go? After deciding on my next goal last night I really wanted to stay focused today and it definitely wasn’t easy. As soon as I got to work I already started thinking about picking up breakfast at the cafeteria. I was already thinking that it would be okay if I just started tomorrow. Why not enjoy one last plate of hash browns or a couple more cookies. But then I realized that if I were to have hash browns and cookies then my goal would be harder to reach only because I was already finding excuses to indulge. So I had my breakfast eggs with spinach and I still had my coffee with French Vanilla creamer but there were no hash browns and there were no cookies. And as I mentioned in my last post I also took a picture of myself this morning. And I have to admit that I’m not really impressed with what I saw. But I should have expected what I saw only because I know that I haven’t been watching what I’ve been eating ever since I started CrossFit. Again its not that I was eating a lot of junk food but I definitely wasn’t eating as clean as I should have. And really that’s okay it’s not the end of the world it’s just time for me to get focused now and really think about what I’m putting in my mouth. So here is the picture and what I will be comparing my progress to for the next couple of months:
So what is my plan of attack? Here are a few things that I want to focus on right now:
1. Cut out the hashbrowns and cookies
2. Start snacking on cottage cheese w fruit (realized I hadn’t bought cottage cheese in over a month!)
3. Start running again.
4. More meal prep and eating a packed lunch.
I think that’s about it for now. I don’t want to take on too much too soon although I know that these minor changes should be fairly easy to make. So we’ll see how things go and I’ll make sure to report on my progress and take regular pictures. Oh and one other thing that I want to focus on is just cutting back on my sugar intake in general. I still don’t think I’m having a lot of sugar but I’m sure the little sugary snacks I have been enjoying add up the end of the day.
