A Healthy Me- Week 1


This week was hard. Seriously last week, I was determined. I need to start on my healthier me aspect. I need to focus on me. I know that sounds selfish and yes all these sentences are starting with “I”…….. Every now and then it is ok to focus on YOU though and that is what I am trying to do.

The exercising did not happen as much as one would like. I got on the elliptical once. Did some sit ups this week and tomorrow I get to go on a field trip with my son on a day long nature/science hike. I wish I had a step tracker to see how far I walk tomorrow. I have seriously got to find some motivation this week for that aspect of things.

The diet- I created a dinner menu for the week and it helps a lot. I started using the My Fitness Pal up and have learned that my enemy is snacking. Breakfast was mostly skipped, once and awhile I would have a breakfast burrito. And I consumed a lot of calories with my coffee because I have to have milk and chocolate syrup in it. But this was my dinner menu:

My son made me laugh last night as I was preparing the broccoli. He asked “why are we suddenly eating all this healthy stuff”…. So apparently I am doing something right if my kids are noticing! However, diet alone is not optional. I weighed myself today and now weigh 189 πŸ™ I am suppose to be losing weight, not gaining it!

My goals for this coming week- find an exercise routine that I can stick with and continue eating healthier dinners.

So let’s talk. What is a favorite healthy eating recipe or site of yours?

    I so know what you mean. I have had my own share of days ( even weeks! ) when I’d miss working out and I always tell myself – tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow. So many tomorrows, lol. What’s important though is that we never stop working on our health goals no matter how long it takes. When I skip working out, I make sure that I eat right and make healthier choices. It’s so easy to get tempted but as you said, we should remember why we started on this journey in the first place.

    I’m rooting for you dear πŸ™‚

    Meal planning helps you keep track of your food intake and it also helps you plan healthier meals throughout the week. It’s perfect for people who are switching to a healthier lifestyle!

    Just remember, eating healthier, losing weight, and being more active is a life style choice. It can get really frustrating and overwhelming when you don’t see immediate results. But, one day or one week that is off your A-game is okay!

    You’re heading in the right direction, so don’t get discouraged. I use the Map My Run app on my phone to track my time and distance when I go on walks or jogs. I love it!
