Oh Monday. I so badly want to love you, but I can’t. When I woke up this morning I just wasn’t feeling a new work week.
Let’s get real on the blog for a second. Lately I’ve been in denial.
You see my pants have been getting tighter lately. At first I chocked it up to water retention, but after a few days there’s no denying that I’ve gained weight.
Ordinarily I wouldn’t make a big deal about it, but in the next couple of weeks I’m going to start marathon training, and I want to make sure I’m in optimal condition.
So what am I going to do?
I’m going to go back to my roots of course!
- Eat fruits and veggies at every meal.
- Stop eating so many processed foods.
- Plan out (and track!) my meals and snacks in advance so I don’t get caught, and turn to convenience foods.
- Steer clear of dessert. Lately I’ve been eating it even if I’m not particularly hungry, and that just doesn’t make any sense.
I’m sure you noticed that there’s no exercise included on there, but I’m focusing on one aspect at a time. I’ve fallen off the wagon here, and I know that it’s going to take a bunch of small changes to make it stick. I usually steer clear of weight stuff on the blog (it’s not my favorite topic) but I’m hoping this will keep me accountable.
I’m off to spend some quality time with the pups and the husband.
Smell ya’ later.
