Last week's dream focus: Work out 2 times - keeping track of any bonus workouts, stay under caloric budget for the week, make healthier choices in the foods I'm eating, and continue fighting those feelings of defeat, insecurity, and self-negativity.
What went well: I worked out three times last week, exceeding my dream focus! LaShan and I tried the lunchtime Zumba class. It was a fun workout that kicked our butts, but two hours away from work was a lot of time and just won't work going forward. I might have to come up with an alternative plan. Also, I was under my weekly caloric budget again!
Challenges: There have been a couple of extremely tempting desserts in the kitchen from a birthday celebration. One is Mississippi mud cake and the other are amazing Mounds brownies. They have been super difficult to resist. I haven't pigged out on them but I've been eating small bites several times a day. Eating one or two small portions every now and then won't ruin everything, but several small portions a day definitely won't move me closer to my dream at the rate of speed I'd like.
This week's dream focus: Work out 2 times - keeping track of any bonus workouts, stay under caloric budget for the week, make healthier choices in the foods I'm eating, and purchase a really good (and tasty) protein shake that I'll crave!
