After last week’s stress and cat drama I had a poor start to the week. I let my emotional eating get the better of me and I made some poor choices. I did turn things around midway through the week however and I am back on track and feeling much better and very excited for February!
Things I did right:
Recognized my self destructive patterns were returning and turned it around
Did a Zumba workout
Made a batch of broccoli salad
Made a healthy lasagna and ate leftovers for lunch
Made a healthy oatmeal bar recipe and snacked on them throughout the week
Cleaned up my apartment and washed several of my blankets
Took the stairs with my laundry basket (it’s huge and weighs about 20 lbs)
Took some time to relax and charge my personal batteries
Well here we are, another Friday and another week done. I feel really good about this week’s progress although my emotions have been up and down throughout the week. First things first, let’s see how I did with the goals I set last week.
I had planned to walk to work 3 times this week, I did twice and I could do today but I will see how I am feeling as I am fighting a bug of some kind and want to ensure I listen to my body. Although I am a bit short on this goal, I have been using my fitbit every day and have increased my steps goal from 7000-8500 and have met this goal each day with one day even having over 16000 and another one over 11000 so I have definitely increased my activity.
