I finished my first week of my new eating and exercise plan and I am doing well. I am still excited and enthusiastic about what I'm doing so that's a big plus!
I created a new tracking table based on that I saw online and have been using that for a week now. I track my goals, my food (WW points) and exercise. I use it to plan what dinners I am making for the week, and any chores I want to do that day/week. This week I stayed in my WW range every day!!
That is incredible to me.
I have been struggling for months and finally just said I have to do this and I actually have started.
Definitely easier during the pandemic because of not eating out. I've been cooking a lot and always check points/calories before deciding on a recipe. It has to fit into my day.
There's a lot of planning around meals because I don't want to have high point meals at each meals because I will go over my range. So I came up with a few go to breakfasts and lunches that work for me. I also pre-packaged some snacks so I can open the fridge or cabinet and quickly grab something that is pre-counted. The structure of planning and making my own food is so freeing. It gives me the power!!
I know that sounds strange but I use the structure of meal and exercise planning to give me the freedom to succeed.
Take all the thinking out of it and just do!
Here's my tracking table for this week and my exercise chart for the year. The colored spaces indicate the days that I worked out.
