I did a 21 day fix workout today because as you guys know I am trying the whole beachbody coach thing out. Tonight I have to do the “Dirty Thirty” workout since I missed Monday. After my earlier workout, I literally had an entire small Tribe garlic hummus and pretzel crisps. Tonight, I had some very healthy chilly I made, but topped it with these organic corn crisps. I will call it the Blizzard Blues as to why I am eating so much comfort food.
So, even though fitness is my goal this year and I have done well so far until yesterday and today, I am eating too much in this storm!! Monday, I will be strictly on my whole 21 Day Fix kick with the eating by counting containers of different food groups. I lost 9 lbs on it from October 18th until November 7th. I lost another 7 or 8 lbs the next go round but then I got sick and have just started to get better after 6 weeks of doc visits and meds.
Thankfully there are no more chips or crackers here because that is my downfall. Organic or not, they just aren’t the most nutrient-dense foods in the world. And, had it not been the threat that we may lose power for days, I would have never had food like that here. So, my workout tonight will actually be to make up for the excess calories that I have had today! Ughhhh. But at least I am working out right?
I am starting back on 21 Day on Monday as I said, but I am starting a new challenge group on February 15th for those of you interested in going through it with me, let me know! I am starting the next group that late because I have to do my 21 days first to get myself back on track before I can lead a group.:)
Back in the day, I would have gone on a downward spiral and eaten more crap or not worked out because I would feel like I had screwed up. NO more! I am human, we all are, and one part of becoming a better person is to forgive oneself. I have beat myself up internally for so many years if I messed up or if things did not go as planned. But nowadays I am not making excuses, but realizing that I will not always make the right choice and patting myself on the back for not giving up.
I encourage you to keep going and trying and pushing no matter what your goal is. If you are trying to get fit, make more money, write a book, be a better partner,etc. Just keep on keepin’ on! Persistence is they key to achieving your goals and dreams. Good luck on whatever you need to work on, and I am going to get off of the pc so that I can work these calories off!
Blessings and Good Night!
