Well I can definitely say that I am feeling much better about my fitness journey this week than I did last week. I wasn’t even remotely perfect this week but it was at least a step forward in the right direction. Did I get my 10k steps in every day – NO, did I eat well everyday – NO, but did I do better – YES!!!
It’s all about moving forward and not dwelling on past mistakes. It’s ensuring that each day I try to do a little bit better or at least get up and dust myself off if I’ve had a bad day. No need to dwell on what I did wrong, it’s focusing on what I can do better moving forward.
What did I do better this week? I made it to the gym twice and was able to get out and enjoy and nice long walk and enjoy the fresh fall air. I did my best to follow the meal plan that I had planned out earlier in the week. And when I got groceries, I only got what I needed and I definitely didn’t need any candy, chips or chocolate.
I decided that if I didn’t get my steps in that day that I wasn’t going to get all upset about it, I just tried to do better the next day. Some days it is just impossible to get the steps in due to what life throws at us. And when I took my son out for a pancake breakfast date this morning before school, I let myself enjoy my meal with him and knew I would have to adjust my eating for the rest of the day. What I am realizing is that I can’t always be perfect and beating myself up about it isn’t going to help me move forward. I know I am not perfect and never will be. Ensuring that I am moving forward is the key. Always forward and not regressing completely back and ignoring it.
So again, another busy week ahead of me but I will keep pushing forward.
