alright, i’m slipping. the last four days have been absolutely chaotic. For one, i’ve been eating tons of junk food (both out of habit and because of cravings—and what’s worse is that i didn’t even enjoy it! i felt guilty the whole time, and eating just made me feel worse, which led to more eating cuz i felt like crap.. the viciouss cycle!)
Secondly, i haven’t worked out. maybe its because its a long weekend, (i normally wake up at around 5:45 and workout for about an hour before i go to school), and since i haven’t had to wake up early, the workout kinda got bumped out of my schedule.
so, here’s i am trying to get back on track:
1) drink more water! (at least 8 cups a day)
how i’ll do it:
1 cup when i wake up (before working out)
1 cup with breakfast
1 cup with lunch
4 cups after school (After school is usually when all the chaos happens, so I’ll drink water first thing home from school and i’ll be drinking water while i’m procrastinating, and instead of giving in to cravings/bad habits)
1 cup with dinner
if i’m really craving some taste, but am not hungry, i’ll add a tea bag or some lemon juice to it :)
oh and to help with the water intake, i’ll carry a water bottle around with me throughout the school day (which is when i tend to get the most dehydrated)
2) measure and snap a picture monthly
this’ll motivate me! i know it haha. the first picture (taken today!) was brutal, but i’ll be looking forward to next month’s (or maybe december’s, because by then, i’ll really be on my way to a healthier me!).
this’ll be it for noww. baby steps, i’m taking babystepss.
