This past week, the kids were on spring break from school. I worked a lot and I went to Michigan for a long weekend to go gambling with the family. Workouts this week, well, didn't happen. My plan was to be at the gym three days this past week, but working and spending time with the kids outweighed my desire to exercise.
I did very well with eating while in Michigan. I didn't eat any desserts or crab legs with the melted butter. I was happy with my salad and prime rib.
I didn't over indulge in Captain Morgan's and Diet Vernors either. The major difference I notice is how I really think about what I'm going to eat or drink before it touches my mouth.
When I think about how many calories is in a regular soda, I also think about how long I would be on the bike or the treadmill to burn those calories off. I'd rather drink water and save those "bad" calories for something worth my while. Drinking a 20-ounce soda is not worth it.
My plan for this week is to be at the gym at least five days. My weight is slowly coming off and I know that it is due to the fact that I have not been exercising like I should.
I know what the problem is, and I am the only person who is able to fix it.
With that being said, I'm going to try my hardest to be at Weigh of Life five days this week and I will be in those jeans on May 18.
Four weeks to go, I can do this. I just need to deal with the daily curve balls thrown at me and learn to manage my time a little better.
