You take it all and then you have… Well, if you’re my age, you have a flashback moment to an annoying sitcom from the 80s. Which was, if you stop and think about it, thirty years ago. Which goes to show how much television I watch these days, if a bunch of my pop culture references are three decades out of date.
Anyway, I’m not here to talk about the facts of life. I’m here to reflect on my week, which is a combination of good and bad. To the good, I’ve hit my walking goal every day so far and most of my exercise goals. To the bad, I’ve been sort of ignoring my calorie budget. I was good with it one day, came near it two other days, and sort of blew through it two more days. So, I’m thinking I probably held my ground on the weight. Which is the bad, because I really wanted to see some progress this week. Still, life happens.
I’m not moping, though. I’m just trying to recognize that I made some mistakes, and to figure out why. And most of that “why” comes down to “poor planning”. I didn’t plan out making my breakfasts and lunches in advance, so I had to eat out. And that leads to eating more than I should. Also, having cash or a debit card on me makes snacking easier. And if I’m already primed by eating out, it’s a whole lot harder to discipline myself and not snack.
Long story short, I need to prep my meals in advance for next week. Important lesson, that.
