My real life and blogger friend Maria does a Monday blog series of Motivational Monday. I'm going to start one called DE-Motivation Monday just to prove that I can undo any amount of motivation she may have.
I kid. Or not.
I was going to do this wonderful update about how I've been
meeting my fitness and health goals and all, but I guess I'll just have to
settle for doing an update about how my eating sucks.
( oh so true )
I'm pretty good about sticking to working out. I started
last Wednesday and haven't missed any of my scheduled workouts. I dropped 2
pounds last week (which I was all proud about until I typed it out and realized
how minimal that really looks) but apparently somewhere over the weekend I
gained one of the pounds back.
I track my food on SparkPeople. No, this is not a sponsored post, I just really love that website.
There are others out there that some of my friends use but I feel an allegiance
to SP because they offer so much more than just calorie counting and fitness
plans. I track my food even if I mess up.. I know where I messed up this
weekend. Entirely too many Berry Blast Ice Cream Oreos. Plus I think I upped my
portions a little too much.
But I have to admit, it's pretty frustrating. I've cut a lot
from my diet and I've upped my exercise by like 100% and I'm still not seeing
much results. Which is really pretty de-motivating.
I'm not really all that big of a Debbie-Downer. (Ok, I
am.. but I try to avoid it)
I'm just looking at this week as a new start. I'm
seriously doubting my ability to reach my goal weight by cruise time but I
don't think it'll stop me from trying. I'm just going to have to up my game a
little and probably enlist the help of my resident expert, Maria.
So.. my first real fitness update. Not a great one but at
least I stayed on point for my exercise. Let's see if I can't make this week
