I started this week well – did loads of cooking on the weekend to see me through the week and had stuff organsied for lunches and breakfasts. I had a whole exercise schedule worked out. Then, around Wednesday, the plan just fell apart.
I’ve done next to no exercise this week and started eating just too much. I think these are the factors that contributed to the situation:
- letting the cold/rain stop me from exercising.
- I’ve still got a few weeks to go on my gym membership. I have no motivation to go into the city after work and use the gym though but I feel like it’s a waste of money to go elsewhere.
- On top of that, I’ve got into the mindset that if I do go to the gym, I have to an EXTREME workout – all or nothing.
- Even though I made stuff for lunch like chicken and tuna type things, I didn’t have other stuff to go with it. I’d made couscous on the weekend but only enough for a couple of meals.
These aren’t excuses. They are things I have to work around. With the exercise, I have to just do it. Go to the gym or workout at home or whatever – so long as I do something. With the food, a bit more planning.
I guess it’s only 2 bad days out of the week. Time to regroup and start again.
