Screwed Up Routines

I hate when my routines get changed. It freaking throws everything off. I had a super busy week at work and at home. I ran out of protein powder and didn’t have time or energy to cook proper meals. I had pizza TWICE and way too many carbs/sweets in general. I feel completely discouraged because the week was so bad.

I have to work this weekend as well and have yet another busy few days ahead of me. Then…vacation. Seven glorious days away from home, without work and far fewer responsibilities. But it also means seven days of eating out, resisting temptations and lots of laziness.

I need to pick myself up out of this rut, get my butt back on the wagon and keep on trucking. I will not let this week of poor focus get me down! It’s time to Refocus, Refresh, Recharge and Restart!


Another day, another effort.

I’ve been gradually working on managing my food intake, especially how many carbs I’m consuming. I feel like I’m doing a pretty good job. My day usually consists of a protein shake with frozen fruit for breakfast, a sweet potato for lunch and something quick and carb free (if possible) for dinner. Tonight I had scrambled eggs with bell peppers and shrimp. Oh, and a banana as a pre-workout snack.

I went for a walk this afternoon as well. 1.83 miles, pushing the stroller, in 40 minutes. I averaged about 21 minutes a mile which is about 3 minutes slower than my regular pace but I had a headache and had just gotten home from work. I’m glad I went for the walk though. I felt pretty relaxed afterward, despite the persistent headache.
