Well, let me get the bad news out of the way. I'm up 2lbs. So, I gained back my loss from last week, plus 1/2.
The good news is, I know why. I didn't exercise. I wasn't entirely diet conscious. So...what else did I expect the outcome to be?
It's really hard being a new mom, and trying to focus on my health goals at the same time. At the same time, if I really want to do this, I'm just going to have to find a way. That could mean less sleep, or less internet time, or less time with my husband. It's going to be a tradeoff, because my life has changed so much.
So, where did I go wrong last week? I said that I'd go to the gym a few times, but I didn't really plan the actual days. I said that I'd go on the weekend, but I didn't go to bed early enough the night before...and I need to get hubby to go to bed early too, so that he can watch the baby in the morning. If I pick the actual days and plan my workouts, perhaps it will happen.
I did plan my meals, but I didn't really refer to the plan. Not helpful. This week, my parents cooked us a TON of food. They're great that way, because they know our hands are full with the baby. So, there should be no excuses because I've got a fridge full of healthy food.
This isn't going to happen without a realistic plan. And me sticking to it. Sounds easy enough, but I need to take it one day at a time.
I'm disappointed with myself, yes. But I'm still determined. And as long as there's a will, there's a way.
