Happy Thursday - or my monday?

Good morning everyone!

Its Thursday to most of the world but my shifts start today so it feels like my Monday. Yippee.

I actually got up when I said I would and did a yoga for runners segment from youtube. It was just what my hips needed and a great way to start the day.

I have - haha had because kids just woke up ... a few minutes to enjoy a cup of coffee before heading into work.

I pre - logged all my food for today to make sure Im in the right macros.

Im off.

And please send some hugs and prayers if that's your thing to the police family of the Baltimore officer in grave condition at shock trauma. It is my worst fear as a police wife.

loss but a slow down

I am a bit bummed this morning - todays weigh in was 207.4. Down 0.6 lbs this week.

Some stats from this week

  • 1 day I lost it and at a ridiculous amount of halloween candy, cereal and toast in the evening
  • 1 day I ate "off"plan as scheduled
  • I tracked my food 3 of the days this week
  • One of the days I tracked I was WAY over on fat and minimal protein
  • One of the days I tracked I was double my normal carbs
  • I completed 2/3 of my planned runs, 1/2 weight training days and no yoga. 
So while technically I lost weight this week - what I was doing wasnt working. But also what I was doing wasn't really what I should have been doing. 

What am I going to do different this week?
1. Im tracking every day this week. 
2. Goal to be within my macros 100% for 5 days
3. My off meals that will not be CRAZY off - wednesday dinner out with family and saturday dinner out with my mom. 
4. No night binges 
5. Get all my planned workouts in - 3 runs, 2 weight training days and one yoga day
6. Minimal 5 days this week of interm fasting with eat timing from noon to 8pm. 

What macros am I aiming for?

Calories 1377
Protein 72
Fat 62-138
net carbs 20

Where did I get this from?

today turned into that day...

I had no intention of today being my "off" day.

I weighed in yesterday. Today starts a new week. So one of these 7 days is a "free" day.

I had no intention of today being that day - but this morning I woke up hungry and gave in to non plan food. Today has been off since then - yummy but off.

So that means tomorrow I wake up and need to be focused.

The next 6 days need to be on point.

I will be here every day the next 6 days - proving to myself that I can stay focused and on point. I can do this. If I want good outcomes I need to do the work.
