Happy Saturday everyone!
I did it! Made it through my first week back. Hurray. I’ll tell you, it didn’t start out very strong.
I don’t even know how I was able to keep upright this morning. But something inside got me out the door and out to my morning meeting.
So, how was the week?
I was up 1.3 and while old Jen would make excuses, I know exactly where I went wrong:
- Lack of sleep. One of the biggest habits I’ve been trying to get in to is to be in bed by 9pm on a weekday with lights out at 10. Did. Not. Happen. Once. I was busy writing for the blog and working on some other projects and when I get focused on something, time seems to fly by. Adam told me this morning, I’m cut off. I didn’t even fight him on it. I could barely keep my eyes open.
- I didn’t track. I started on the weekend but then allowed the rest of the week to slip through my fingers. Sometimes I think if I don’t track, it doesn’t happen which is silly because it did happen and it will show up somewhere. It did.
- Meal plan. Now I’m not going to take full blame for this because in this weather, who wants to go out and get groceries? Well that’s why you go out on Saturdays and prep for the week. Lesson learned.
So while my first weigh in of 2018 did not go the way I wanted it to, what I discovered this week is that I need to really balance out other areas of my life. This is going to take time but with some planning I know things will improve in time.
I’m off to Zumba! I will definitely share later (the awesomeness of it all deserves its own post). Hope you all had a good week. If you’re on Weight Watchers let me know how you are doing. We can support each other. If you’re thinking about joining, and have questions concerns or fears, send me a message.
