Simply Evani started a brand new link up about health and fitness this week and I've just started my own health and fitness journey I could use the support and more accountability.
It's time to check in again. I've got some smiles and some sad faces to report. I really need to learn to schedule things better. I've had years to practice and you'd think I'd have a better handle on it by now. Ok, most days I do, but a lot of the time when I start slacking it's because poor choices (ie. staying up too late, procrastination, etc.). I should just go to bed earlier.
To work out at least 3 days a week & take a walk/play outside on the other days.
I did pretty well on this one and it was my number one goal so I'm happy. Working out has always been my achilles heel and being able to keep up with it is doing wonder for my confidence.
Drink at least 5 glasses of water a day.
This were the first sad face. Water is boring. This is not news but it's hard to drink water when I am used to tasting something, you know? I've tried adding lemons and cucumbers and even those flavor packets but I kind of feel like I'm cheating. It's getting easier and maybe I'll turn into one of those people that magically crave water some day. Or not.
Use My Fitness Pal everyday
Another sad face. I'm really good during the week but on the weekends I can never remember, I'll forget what I ate or we go somewhere and I'll eat something complicated and not want to figure out how to enter it. It's not a big fail and I'm still close to my daily limit each time. I think. Pretty sure.
Start taking vitamins
I stared with a multi-vitamin but it tastes like dirt so I when the bottle is gone I'm going to look for something else. Otherwise I may start sneaking Flintstone vitamins from the kids bottle.
Choose a muscle toning routineI found one that I like on Pinterest. So far it's the easiest thing to do. I can do it while I'm even watching tv! Once I have to routine down better I won't have to check my cheat card so much.
I'm going to keep working on the goals that I have for now and I hope to improve on them by next month. I've lost 4 pounds this month and I'm down a whole pant size so I'm feeling encouraged. I want to establish a better routine and habits before the holiday season hits. I can see the peanut butter balls on the horizon.
