Still trying to get in "the groove"

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

So right now eating at night is a huge problem for me. And it's just lack of self discipline and will power to be honest. Yesterday I ate sensibly all day, I found this cool thing on pinterest that breaks down workouts into small thirty or forty five minute increments a day and the good part about it is there is not so much emphasis on cardio. There is cardio for 30 or 15 minutes combined with another target group such as arms, legs or abs. I did this beautifully last night and my nutrition was great yesterday too... that is until my boyfriend got off work and we started pigging out. I don't expect him to change his lifestyle too (although he wants to become more active, the food part Idk about so much) but I can't let that effect me and my own goals; I have to stick to with my program no matter what. This was so much easier when I was single lol but the process is different when in a relationship.

So, I'm just going to brush yesterday off and enjoy the new opportunities today brings. I am glad that I at least have it in my mind to not give up, even if I am off to a slow start. Even with the pig out fest last night, I still probably ate less than I have been eating on some other days.

I'm on a social media hiatus now and that is very helpful. I'm focusing on my own life, setting my own goals, and using my down time and work to read positive things and kind of center my mind.

So I'm going to set a new goal today; no more late night takeout with my boyfriend. I'll see if I can stick with it for the rest of this week.

    Your new goal sounds really good. It's one I've worked on for years and only since joining SparkPeople earlier this year have I made any progress on it. The key for me turns out to be drinking enough water. I usually manage six eight ounce cups during the day and two in the evening--(and accept the 3 a.m. pee call as being worth it!) Good luck.
