Getting back into the swing of things fitness and diet wise is a lot harder than it sounds. I’ve been out of the game for weeks and even though I worked out I didn’t do it my hardest and I didn’t do it consistently. And as I’ve said in previous posts, I didn’t stick to my clean eating at all.
Yesterday was my birthday and who doesn’t have cake on there birthday? This girl. Thankfully my hubby knew my struggle and got me very little cupcakes and Halo birthday cake ice cream. I love that man I swear. I also finished my 16th week yesterday so I was hoping for increased motivation. However due to my lack of discipline and will power I actually gained a pound but lost a half inch in both my waist and hips. It could have been more. I stalled out. Put it in the back burner and put myself last. Granted I was visiting family and dealing with the house thing but there was no where in the vacation that said I had to eat like crap. Or had to accept the portions handed to me. But it’s my mistake and I am fully aware now.
Today, I killed my workout. I skipped coffee and creamer and have made sure to up my intake of water. Once again I have to take it a day at a time. My mind wasn’t as strong as my body and I will have to train it like I do the rest of me. All is fair in love and war and fitness. As a first meal back to clean eating I will be cooking venison meatballs with zoodles and a homemade sauce. It was very good and I was very literal in my portion size. And I feel great. The hard thing about portions is your mind tells you “it’s not enough food” but if you ignore the little liar you start to understand that portions are there for a reason and they are plenty big enough. That combined with the right amount of water for your body and you feel right as rain. Pray for me, I’m going to need it.
