Hello! So it has been one month since I made some goals and set my sights on a healthier me. I really focused on being more active in January and breaking some bad habits like daily soda. While I did alright and kicked my daily Pepsi habit, I know I could have done MUCH better. I know this is a marathon and not a sprint so I am good with focusing on habits in the first month. I am READY to work now. Here is a month one recap…
Not much difference in the pics, but no soda or alcohol for a month…I will take it!
I lost 2 pounds. I am ready to put in some work this month and get the scale and my measurements to go down.
Last month I wanted to get into the habit of working out at least 3 times per week and cut out all soda and alcohol. I reached that goal for the month. I started the month strong with working out and then stopped, but then really focused on moving towards the end of the month. I also got a new FitBit which is motivating as well. I am working out regularly now and happy about that.
My goals for February are:
- 10,000 steps every day.
- 100 ounces of water each day.
- Only have two splurge meals (Valentines Day and possibly one more).
- Track calories.
In addition to this, I want to continue to work out at least three times a week (hopefully more).
I find myself justifying poor food choices and this month I am going to focus on making healthy food choices, even if I don’t want to.What I eat is going to have the biggest impact on my goals.
For breakfast I pretty much had Greek yogurt and raspberries every day.
I had a lot of salads for lunches.
And for dinner our menu fluctuated between healthy and not-s0-healthy.
For snacks I discovered…
I took things slow this first month and tried to pay attention to bad habits and try to break them. Soda, alcohol, indulging every chance I can, pretty much just doing whatever on the weekends. This month I am ready to put in hard work and dedication. I also need to focus on healthy food options all the time and not feeling the need to indulge every chance I get or to justify bad food choices (“it’s a special occasion”). I am ready for this month and excited to be working out regularly which always motivates me.
Any good dinner ideas for me? How do you control temptations on the weekends? I would LOVE to hear!
