Back on the Wagon

I made no secret that I was letting many things slip after the miscarriage. For the first week or so I wasn’t working out I was obviously very depressed and I definitely turned to the comfort of sleep and eating. Not exactly the healthiest ways to deal with things, but it is what I did. The holidays came quickly after that, followed by a nasty bout of the flu, and here we are today.

I learned a lot about nutrition and how to eat well for my body when I met with Amanda, and I know I need to get back on the eating right plan.

I have a few tools that I plan on utilizing.


I love the Lose It! app, it helps Nick and I take accountability for the food we eat and for portion size. I love that it has both a web and app for you to use. I like that it keeps things real, losing weight is not something that happens overnight, you input your weight, goal weight, and can choose between 1/2 lb and 2 lb loss per week. It can be a bit daunting to see you won’t get to your goal weight for 6-8 months, but it is the healthiest way to get there.

I write out my workouts, and I plan on blogging about them here, just for accountability’s sake. This week my plan is: Tuesday – Kettlebell class at Achieve, Wednesday – at home workout, Thursday – MetCon at Achieve, Pound Workout at Studio Poise, Saturday – Zumba and Poise Xpress at Studio Poise. I am hoping to throw in a yoga class at some point this week, because honestly, it has been doing wonders for my mind and stress.


I also need to meal plan. This is something that I really struggle with. I like to see what the sales are, but I also prefer to shop on Monday or Tuesday’s because it is less crowded and there is usually a shipment in the morning. This makes things a bit hectic since I don’t have X amount of hours to meal prep sans kiddo. I do my best but it can big a struggle.

The last thing I need to do is keep up on my water intake. I used to be so so good at getting 90-100 oz of water in a day, but for some reason I haven’t been great about it lately. I know that I can do it, I just need to get better about it.

So that is my plan, what do you do stay on track or get back on the wagon?

  1. I don’t do a lot of meal planning – and my CSA box comes on a Wednesday which messes me up. But, I do a lot of veggie prep on Sundays. Good luck back on the wagon!

  2. Proud of you for blogging about this to stay accountable. You have so many awesome fitness resources so that is amazing. You should enter Kaitlin’s giveaway today for a free membership for an online yoga website!! :D
    I have a few yoga DVDs I don’t use often that I’d be glad to send to you. Message me your address on FB again (I know I’ve asked a thousand times I’m sorry!) and I will drop them in the mail for you.
    My mom does the Mon/Tues shopping thing too for the same reasons as you! She likes to shop for the sales and then find recipes and plan them around those items. Like if fish is on sale then she’ll buy it and then try to think of something to do with it. Maybe you can do that. Pinterest is always a great recipe resource.

  3. I was the same way Kelly after!! I just HAVE to meal plan or else I am left up to picking…all day long!! I also love apps on my phone that help me track my calories! It’s so easy!! You’ve got this chickie!!!
