Writing this on the treadmill. Getting the walking in and starting a new habit of finishing up my food diary at night.
- What went well: Made it to the gym a few times. I’ll call that a win right now. I was sick earlier in the week but it seems entirely cleared up now so I’m feeling like I’m back.
- What went poorly: It appears social eating is still the major issue. Clearer rules and small meals prior to any social dinners might help with things.
- What I’ll change this week: I no longer have the “I’m sick” excuse. So I’m aiming to hit the gym in the morning (have been sleeping and waking a little earlier each day to get to where I’ll have enough time in the morning). And then at night I’ll continue building this habit of finishing the food diary + slow cardio + some other journaling.
Okay I’ll keep this weekly thing short because these ran pretty long in the past and that eventually made me not want to do it. But I’ll continue sharing a fitness quote.
From Bigger, Leaner, Stronger by Michael Matthews:
One of our favorite ways to abandon our self-control is to justify our sins of the present with planned virtues of the future.
I’ll stop saying “I’ll eat less tomorrow to make up for tonight.
Time to eat like an adult.
