Since I wrote about wanting to get back on track with my eating and working out, things have been going pretty good, though I’ve definitely had my moments.
Writing down everything I eat has been awesome at keeping me accountable. I’m not able to ignore things when it’s in black and white in front of me. I also find I’m making better choices when it comes to the food I’m picking. I’d rather have something healthy than something unhealthy if I know I have to write it down. My eating has done a 180.
While things have been going great in the eating department, things haven’t been so great when it comes to working out. I’ve been pretty stressed out lately with family stuff. When I get stressed, I don’t sleep very well. I’m one of those people who needs a solid 8 hours of sleep to function the next day. That’s only been happening sporadically lately, so it makes it tough to get up early to get a workout in. I know I need to work on getting more/better quality sleep, which will make it easier to get my workouts in.
In the two weeks since I’ve started I’ve lost two pounds. I know it’s not much in the grand scheme of things, but it’s a start in the right direction. Losing and seeing the results on the scale gives me the motivation to continue making the best decisions I can.
