I have eaten like absolute crap for the past week. I have no real reason for this, I just ate poorly. Lunch seemed to be my downfall – over the week I ate a bacon cheeseburger, pizza loaded with meat, and chinese food. On Friday I ate a delicious sammich from the mini-cafeteria downstairs from my class. A delicious 760 calorie sammich. Oy. And I KNEW it was that bad, but ate the entire thing anyway. Along with the excessive calorie consumption this week, I’ve also had too much fat and too much salt.
There has also been a serious lack of exercise this week as I continued to recover from my idiotic injury, although I was feeling much better by Wednesday and still did not take the time to workout any remaining day of the week. I have no excuses. I was tired and went to bed early is not a good excuse. Being stressed because of the presentations on my plate are also not good excuses. The only good reason I had was an injury, and since that is better, I have no reason not to get started again, even if at a slower pace than previously.
I expect no sympathy for my choices over the last week (or two) and fully expect that the scale will not give me sympathy on Monday morning. I write this merely to remind myself that I kinda sucked at the whole new lifestyle this week.
This week is just a reminder that it’s easy to fall back into poor eating habits. I need to find something easy, quick, and healthy to take to work for both breakfast and lunch. I need to jump back on the exercise wagon and burn some calories. And not only do I need to do these things, I want to do them. So, today I get back on the wagon.
