You know I've been struggling lately with consistency ... in my workouts, nutrition, blogging. Well, I think io hit the bottom this weekend.
I hosted a hosted a Girls Night In on Saturday and had a great time. Gotta do this more regularly.
The only problem was that I've been dealing with an extremely painful leg all week. I just wasn't able to get comfortable. I managed to get in for a massage on Saturday after noon, but that created different challenges. I don't remember being so puffy... Other than hot humid days ... And believe me, Saturday was nowhere near hot nor humid.
Anyway, I didn't drink a lot but had too much rich food, too much sugar and combined with jello shooters ... Did not add up to a good Saturday. I was basically a veghead yesterday.
But it did make me realize that I really have to smarten up, get strict with my eating and get back to my routines. I have to get my workouts AND my meals planned out in advance so I make sure that I have food out for dinner and nutritious leftovers.
Years ago I did the Atkins diet and while I don't really advocate the extremeness of it, I did feel great. More protein and vegetables and combined with moderate levels of fruit ... and I felt great. I need to get back to tracking my nutrition and working out 6 days a week ... I feel myself getting flabby again. And that's just not acceptable.
So hopefully hubby will help, at least in getting back on track. But ultimately it's my responsibility to get my act together. I did better with my nutrition today ... only 2 small coffees, no junk. Tomorrow I'll get up and do my cardio workout. Funny ... I didn't enjoy my second coffee today ... hmmmm.
The massage and chiropractor helped a lot so I should be back in fighting form for tomorrow.
The secret is to never give up. No matter how many times you falter ... no matter how many missteps you have ... as long as you never give up, you're winning.
I hope you've all had a great day :)
