I got my $20 back!!
Last week was hard, but I am slowly learning to make better choices when it comes to my eating habits. Now, instead of diving into a meal with reckless abandon, I actually take the time to think if it's really worth it. Do I want to blow a day's worth of calories on one meal? no. ok it depends on the meal but mostly no. Do I want to enjoy a cheeseburger now but eat lettuce for dinner? if it were a Red Robin Banzi burger maybe. Admittedly, yes, sometimes I still give in to a craving. Last week I gave up breakfast so I could eat some boneless wings at work. And yesterday, I may have indulged in a few glasses of wine that put me slightly over my calories for the day. But in my defense wine and the Oscars go hand in hand.
I also started working out again last week. We have a pretty nice treadmill that is WAY under-used, so I dusted that bad boy off and got on. I also did a strength training workout on Netflix. I always forget how much of a workout weightlifting actually is. I only worked out 2 1/2 times -the 1/2 time Jack woke up prematurely from his nap-but it felt like progress nonetheless.
Goals this week: Continue logging daily meals and staying under 1500 calories a day minus 1 cheat day. Aim to workout cardio 3 times a week and strength training 2 times a week. I would like to be in the 150's next week!!
