...way off. I haven’t been working out, at all. I haven’t been eating many veggies or fruit either. It always starts like this… it’s the weekend I want to eat something that feels like a treat, hello giant burrito with extra sour cream and cheese. And then I’m going to a bunch of parties… why would I eat from the veggie tray when I could pick from the boneless wings in three different flavors? And I definitely can’t work out, I’m too busy or I’d rather lay in my bed and relax or it’s snowing. Worst!
So many B.S. excuses and as always, once I get out of a healthy mindset, it’s so hard to get back into it. But admitting my problem is the first step, right? Right. So it’s a new month and I need to get my butt in gear (especially before the holidays)! So how am I going to do it?
I’m totally paying for a gym membership at Globo Gym (aka Planet Fitness). I need to get there and get my money’s worth! I’m making a vow to go twice a week (at least), which doesn’t really sound like much, but it’s way more than I’m going now.
I’m also inspired by Caitlin over at Healthy Tipping Point, she’s doing a November push-up challenge! When I read about it, I was like yes, this is perfect. I’m going to aim to do 50 consecutive pushups by the end of the month. Right now I believe I can do between 15 and 20. I’m going to follow the plan on http://hundredpushups.com/ and see what I can do. I think my goal is realistic, but I will definitely have to push myself. I’m looking forward to some nice guns :) I’ll keep you guys posted on my progress, anybody want to join me?
I need to plan ahead! Bad food choices come from ordering and eating out all the time. Italian hoagies, giant cheeseburgers, lots of pizza… these things should be special treats, not in the regular line up. I am vowing to pack my lunch before I go to bed, so I can put together well thought out lunches, as opposed to grabbing whatever is convenient.
I’m also going to take some time to skim through and reread some parts of In Defense of Food. When I read it for the first time, I felt so inspired to eat more plants and whole foods and less processed junk. I think revisiting the messages in the book will help.
Tomorrow is Friday. Thank goodness! Have a fabulous weekend.
Do you go back and forth with your healthy habits? How do you make them stick?
