No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
I love this proverb: "Habits are cobwebs at first; cables at last".
I definitely see the wisdom in it as I work on my weight, diet, and fitness goals. My dietary habits are still cobwebs, but I have to keep in mind that this is normal, and with persistence, I will have cables of healthy eating in place. However, I need a bit more action in my coffee than I've been getting lately.
I went on two back to back mini-vacations, the first to Vegas, a place I love. Then to San Francisco, a place a love even more. The bf and I drove 9 hours from Sacramento to Vegas, and back again. Then I did a quick overnight to SanFran with my mom. That's only a two hour drive.
I ate like my habits were cobwebs during this vacation time!
Exercise was ok; I got 3 miles on a treadmill in vegas, and about 4 miles total the rest of the week. I'm ok with this low mileage, because it's time to bump things up to prep for my half-marathon in October. So I'm glad my body got some extra rest.
The only thing I'm not happy about is zero strength work, after several weeks of sticking with it. I had an alternative workout I could have down while on vacation, really simple, but I just refused to do it. This is why I really need that BodyPump class. There are only two classes per week that fit my schedule, so I just push myself to GO, since I have few options, and I'm paying for the membership just to take this class.
I was tracking my calories on a nice clip before the vacation, and then stopped. I'm picking it back up today. I am determined that I will end August MUCH better off than July, which was a very low point in my health commitments overall.
No weight loss. And I'm not surprised one bit.
