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 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?
