So… basically since the beginning of the year I’ve totally been slacking on eating well and exercising. Actually, truthfully this began once I switched jobs and now work longer and more irregular hours without a gym 10 feet away from me. I knew I was gaining weight back and getting more out of shape but I thought I still had a good ‘buffer’ zone, that surely I hadn’t gained back more than four or five pounds…
The other day I weighed myself for the first time in months and had gained back about 7-8 pounds… It took me six months to work off 15 and about six months to gain half of it back. That’s kind of scary… Thank goodness for realizations that come at the beginning of the month so I feel extra motivated to do something about it.
I’m going to New York the last week in April… and plan to eat to my heart’s desire so I want to at least lose back 5 pounds by that time. I think that’s reasonable for three-ish weeks.
So, the goals:
- Exercise at least 4 times a week
- 1 outdoor run
- 1 gym visit
- 1 at home workout
- 1 more of the above
- No more than two drinks a night. Vodka-soda’s or white wine only.
- No more white bread! <—- This one is actually the hardest sometimes.
