Week 1.2, mission get back on track went well. My eating was so much better, and I am feeling better too! I was surprised Sunday morning when I stepped on the scale after week 1 to see I was down almost 3 pounds. I don’t feel like I’ve lost any weight, and I bet it’s mainly water weight from my poor eating prior to last week….but I’ll take it!
I didn’t get in as many workouts as I wanted to, so this week I will focus on getting in at least four sessions in the morning.

So, they say 21 days to a habit. I really need to get back into the habit of wanting to exercise. I love a good sweat, but just haven’t been motivated to get up and workout lately.
Why is it so hard to get back at it?
Today I’m not only meal planning, but scheduling in my workouts. Last week, I felt stressed on the mornings I got a workout in because I felt rushed to get ready for school. I like getting into my classroom early when it’s quiet and getting things done. BUT… my obsession with classroom duties holds me back from getting fit! So, I’m making an intentional effort this week to plan on two early mornings a week and not let my teaching duties interfere with my mission to get healthy!
