So close to halfway. So close! And it’s just a “keep on keepin’ on” situation. Blinders are on. Focus is key.
I’m sticking to the program.
I had intended to weigh in with the body analytics truck that was coming to our CrossFit box, but baseball schedules changed and I had to change my plans. So unless I find another location that the truck will be at soon, I will just weigh in on Day 53.
I feel good though! I feel lighter, smaller and less bloated. The bloat. I don’t know about y’all but when I’m eating poorly there’s a bloated feeling that I always have. I get used to it and don’t think about it but when I’m not bloated, I can tell. Just give clean eating a 30 day trial. I promise you will feel change. You will see change.
I didn’t get the workouts I wanted to get it last week. Only 3. But I feel like freezing at baseball games is a workout in some odd way. My body is working hard to stay warm. Some kind of calories are getting burned off. I’m already at a schedule disadvantage this week. I HAVE TO WORKOUT AT HOME. I MUST! Will I, is the question. It’s so cold outside. The garage is so cold. We’ll see. I’ll do my best to make it happen. I need y’all to will me some willpower! Thanks!
Eating the right things… all the time… it’s not hard, but it can get blah. The counting, the measuring… all of it, does takes its toll. I’m not going to lie to you and tell you it’s the best part of my day/week. And to top it off, I already didn’t want to drink the Advocare shakes and as of now, I really, really, don’t want to drink them. It’s such a chore. I missed one on Saturday and it felt so liberating! But I went back to drinking them again, just to be on track with the Advocare ONE/80 Challenge.
For 36 days, I’ve been damn near perfect. I had the hot chocolate the one day, but it still fit into my calories and macros. Just not the ideal calories. And then this past Saturday, I probably ate too many calories. Not by a whole lot, just too many. We had a Girl’s Night In at CrossFit Boom. There was plenty of healthy food, I just ate too much of it. It was good though! And I didn’t regret it because it was healthy and it didn’t make me feel terrible. Added bonus is that I had a good workout that morning.
So you see it’s possible. All the things are possible. You can make all the excuses you want, but I’m walking, living proof that if you just put your mind to it, you can do this and you will make it happen. And just like I’ve been saying, I’m not perfect. I’m not special. I’m your average, busy human being. I work a full-time job, I commute a long-ass way, I have teens who eat all the bad things, the teens also have an extraordinary busy schedule, and I try to workout 3-5 times a week. I can come up with tons of excuses to go off the rails. LOTS. But I need to change. I need to be healthier. I want to feel good daily. I want to be active and not hurt. I want to be an active healthy grandma … one day, not anytime soon, but one day.
So find your why, make your plan, pick a go day, and get to it. Baby steps or jump in the deep end of the pool… just do something different, better.
