Last week will from here forward be referred to as my “benchmarking week.”
Coming off my 7 week hiatus from doing anything even remotely healthy for myself (unless you count all the red wine I was drinking as healthy? No? Not so much? Bottle a night doesn’t qualify for health benefits? Well ok then. Bastard.) last week was kind of a re-boot week for myself.
My Wednesday confession and subsequent pep talks got me back into the gym, but other than that I was just working on getting back into a habit of doing anything healthy for myself.
I tracked my sleep, food intake, and weight over a 7 day period so I would have some idea of where I’m starting from.
It’s not pretty kittens. At the moment, as I’m temporarily retired, I’m sleeping way more than necessary. I’m also eating way WAY more than I need to be, and while it’s still relatively nutrient dense, my portions are out of control. As you might imagine, my weight is up and I’m itching to get some goals in place to get myself in check.
So without further ado, here are my goals for this week. Yeah, they might seem “easy” to the fit and freaking irritating, but for me, I need to take baby steps to make my health a habit again.
5 Crossfit classes this week. Scale as needed to get the work in.
Track all food and calories (I use myfitnesspal app). Keeps cals under 2000 daily.
Include a serving of veggies with every meal.
Drink no more than 3 nights this week (baby steps here, baby steps).
Get out of bed by 8 a.m. daily.
Once I’m successful this week, I’ll add more for next week!
How about you guys and gals? What are you going to do this week to reach your goals?
