Turns out I need to step up to the plate. Or away from the plate. My weight has not fluctuated at all since I started keeping track. My gym plans fell through for today, so tomorrow I will go in the morning for two hours. On Wednesday, I will go for one hour after work. Then I might go on Friday after work. Saturday morning will be another two hour day. Tonight we will have fish and salad for dinner. Tomorrow I will have strawberries and a protein shake for breakfast and lunch? Maybe I will have salad again for lunch. When I am at work I need to eat more fruits and veggies, instead of carbs. My body needs more Vitamin C. Since I'm not going to the gym today, I will instead use my three pound weights while watching Netflix.
I'm not perfect.
What else can I do to motivate myself to work out and eat right? Maybe if I write down everything I eat and drink and consume? Or maybe that's not enough. Maybe I need to take pictures of everything? It would be a visual reminder of what I ate. I need to practice more self control, mindful eating, taking smaller bites, relishing what I eat, taking my time. Being at work though, I have to rush, otherwise I will be late and get in trouble. I need to plan in advance for work meals.
Can I tell you how much it bothers me when I see people eating McDonald's and they are a size two? I envy people with fast metabolisms. Maybe it is something I need to work on in my life.
We are moving next month and the plan is to learn how to cook healthy and delicious meals in our new kitchen.
