Challenge: Week 7
Going to the gym has become easier and easier. After a month I can feel running getting easier and easier for me. I am running for longer increments and walking less during my cardio regiments. I am stepping more and more out of my comfort zone and trying different weight machines and free weights.
This month I am supposed to be focusing on eating healthier. More fruits and veggies and less fast food. I have to say, I haven’t been doing so well with this part of my 12 Month Challenge. It needs to stop. Breaking old habits are hard. If they weren’t I wouldn’t have to do this here Challenge, would I?
My sister is coming into town next week so we will be eating out a little more than regular but my goal is to choose my meals smarter sticking to protein and veggies and staying further away from pastas and rices that are so delicious. Well, as soon as my Valentine’s Day Italian left overs are all gone, of course.
Smaller meals and portions and meal planning is going to help me beat this goal. I have been bringing a peanut butter sandwich to work in the mornings instead of making my Starbucks run. Last week even made coffee before work one night. I put it in a tumbler and let it sit in the refrigerator. Not adding ice to it kept the coffee strong and it was delicious the next morning. Saving money and being smart about what I eat.
