Pulls me further from my goal
Pushes me closer to my goal
Keeps me in the same spot
I need to get closer to my goal so what am I doing to get there? What are some of the choices I'm making to steer me in the direction I'm trying to go?
On the weekends I don't work out. AT ALL. When I was doing my 1k day 10 minute challenge I was rocking the fitness minutes. When that came to an end, Friday - Sunday became super lazy days.
I stopped tracking. I know tracking works. But here's what I do. I track my good days, don't track the bad ones. Now that's pretty backwards. I should be tracking those days I go overboard so I can see why I'm not losing weight anymore.
I stopped running. Not that running helped me lose a gang of weight (I'm still adamant about weight loss being more about what you eat) But running did lean me out. Definitely. Why did I quit? Ummm 'cause it's hard! Coward.
Lack of portion control eating out. I eat ALL my food and that there is a problem. Why can't I just eat some and put the rest away? Almost 5 years later and I still don't know. I call it being greedy, but there has to be another issue right? Maybe I lost that function in my brain that says "hey, you are full. Stop eating now" Or maybe I just can't stand seeing that little bit of food going to waste. Or maybe I hate leftovers. Who knows.
But there are some things I know I am doing right. I continue to pack my breakfast and lunch for work. Lots of fruit, lots of veggies are being eaten by yours truly. When I grocery shop, I NEVER buy junk food. No chips, no cookies, no ice cream.
Still going to Title Boxing 3-4 days a week. And I must say we go HARD!
But the very best thing I'm doing that pushes me closer to my goal..... I NEVER GIVE UP. I start over every single day. Bad dinner last night? I'm packing my breakfast and lunch today.
I'm not perfect, but I believe that I'm consistent in some things and that is why I will get there. Eventually.
