So it’s the end of week 1 of my #FitTo40 journey and my first week allowed me to identify some weaknesses that I have.
For starters this journey is about improving my consistency in whatever I do. Blogging about my journey is allowing me to stay consistent especially if I have others reading my posts on a daily basis. I got into a lazy zone after Day 5 (I cannot lie) and it didn’t help that I was on my menstral which will always seems to kick me off my game. Next week I’m telling myself that it will be different. I have allowed myself 1 cheat day, and I strive to work out for 30 min at least 3 times a week. I was able to accomplish that goal.
My water intake for this week was like a roller coaster. I was able to fulfill my daily water intake goal at for 1 day out of the 7, but that will all change in the coming weeks. I can attest that my water was low due to me leaving my water bottle on the counter instead of hauling it with me at all times. I know I wasted time by not consistently drinking throughout the day.
I must admit on those days I had to run errands and I did not have my water with me, I slipped and had a couple of sodas which contributed to some weight gain. I know exactly why I got the results I did this past week. A lesson learned on how to do better!
Just like my water intake my diet was not the best this past week. On a few occasions I did not have my water so I opted for a can soda. Whenever I hit up my favorite grocery store called Gelson’s I can always count on making a great salad because they have all my favorite toppings. I had some wings from WingStop which clearly threw off my efforts but when I’m on the go, I must have my snacks otherwise poor food choices will be made. I made sure to stock up on my favorite healthy snacks to counter my cravings. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will have its challenges but with the right mindset you will prevail.
