I fell off the wagon


Some days you do good, eat salad, jog, and do yoga.  Other days you stress eat 3 curry chicken tacos, 2 donuts, and a couple chocolate covered strawberries.  

Last week was a bad week.  It started with the stomach flu that went through all of us.  It was awful.  The only upside was that I lost 2 lbs because I ate nothing, but that’s never a good way to lose weight.  It was followed by a late Valentine’s Day and it was a snowball effect after that, topped off with my 3 year old’s birthday party cupcakes.

So today is a fresh week and I am going to do better.  I am getting back to my Yoga Burn program and making sure I get my steps in each day.  DRINKING ALL MY WATER!  And eating better.  

What I really want to say is, just because I did so bad all week doesn’t mean I am done until January 1st.  Each day can be a start over.  You don’t need to wait til _____ (fill in excuse) to do better.  Get back on track and keep at it.  Do a little extra and make up for the time you lost.  Or just get back to what you were doing.  If what you were doing wasn’t working, try something new.  You are not locked into a fitness routine or diet.  Making changes if that’s what it takes to keep you going.  

I don’t know about you, but I get so sick of salads.  The one thing I know I need to eat the most and I get burnt out so fast on them.  So when I get to that point I change it up and eat veggies other ways.  It’s all about making it work for you and enjoying it.

I was thinking yesterday about how excited I am to do yoga again because my body has felt so sore this week without it and being sick didn’t help it at all either.  I would never think like that about doing weights or a crossfit workout.  That’s not what works for me, but I know what does and that’s what I look forward to doing.

So find what works for you and what you enjoy doing.  Forget about how bad you did last week and think about how much better you will feel at the end of this week.  Don’t beat yourself up and get moving!

I hope you have a great week and Namaste!
