Whoa-K, here are my goals from last week:
Nutrition Goal: Track everything I'm eating and drinking in photos. The point of this will be to give myself an accurate picture of how and what I'm eating and to pinpoint what needs tweaking. Plus force some mindful eating on myself. Also, I would also like to hit that water goal each day and go back to no dairy in my coffee.And how I actually did:
Exercise Goal: 3 Couch-to-5Ks and get my butt to one yoga class.
I tracked everything on my Mothership Eats blog and came to some conclusions, none of which were very surprising.
- Too much sugar/sweets. I don't need to be that indulgent. I don't even really want it or enjoy it half the time. Honestly, I'm still feeling extra rebellious after that nasty thrush diet from January/February. Why am I taunting the thrush?
- I'm also feeling just plain pissy about having a bunch of weird food intolerances. None of them are serious enough to fully justify eliminating them entirely so it's a mental debate every time I come across dairy and gluten. I don't want to face the music on this, but I have to. I really need to respect my body and lay off what is making me feel icky. But it's haaaaard. I want cheese with my whine. (AM SO FUNNY HAHA)
- Overall, though, I feel pretty good about my eating. Lots of veggies, fruits, cook a decent amount at home. Ate out several times last week, but that's not so usual so I'm not overly concerned.
For next week:
Nutrition Goal: 80 oz water per day. Limited dairy & gluten - respect the gut! No desserts/sugars until Friday, then moderate amounts of indulging on the weekend.
Exercise Goal: I will do 30 days of yoga, plus add in some walk/runs a few times a week. I will be fine with not adding in running until next week - it's quite intense doing heated power yoga each day. But eventually I will need additional aerobic exercise beyond yoga and besides I love getting outside in the nice weather. I think yoga & running will be a nice mix for the summer. Then I can re-evaluate.
