Well guys after a couple of weeks of slacking off I've had a bit of a reset. A reset on how I need to operate going forward to hit my goals. I thought that I had it all figured out and could move away from the processes that have helped me to this point. A big process that has helped me out tremendously has been tracking my food and keeping myself accountable. I really felt like I had everything under control and could just do it in my head and just roll with it. So not true! And to make matters worse I am nursing a small injury so I’ve had to change my workouts, so a combination of not tracking my food and having to modify my workouts has led to going off the rails a bit. Getting back on track is necessary and so tracking my food is going to be a major part of getting me back on track, especially now since I am not able to burn the same number of calories.
The tracking system that I use is the My Fitness Pal app, this app is great! As long as you put your information into the app, it will track it for you based on your goals. It even has a bar code scanner so if you have to grab a snack on the move you just scan it and it enters the food for you. This app truly won’t let me have any more excuses or allow me to be lazy anymore about tracking.
This reset is not only for my food tracking but a life reset too. No more excuses, I need to realize that it's not only a short term change it’s a lifestyle change that I have to follow. I know that I can do this and the only one getting in my way, is me! Sometimes you just have to look yourself in the eye and kick yourself in the butt and get moving. This week’s plan is to get back on the treadmill and back to quality eating, hopefully next week’s update reflects the results of my “reset” and re-commitment to this process. Thanks for reading!
