Week 1 of any wellness program is always the best for me. I start off insanely motivated and stay super on track. So, needless to say, this week has gone super well! Even with a holiday in the middle of the week.
Throughout this experience I’m going to be posting weekly updates! I think it’s going to be really great to be able to look back and reflect on each week. It’s going to be a huge learning process and I am so ready for it. So here is my week 1 check in!
Activity Log: 4 days at the gym (elliptical, treadmill, free weights, core, and a little time with the weight machines)
Outdoor Activity: Paddle boarding, lakeside trail stroll, kayaking.
Nutrition: Food is an ever going battle for me. I’m super picky which makes tasks like cutting carbs really challenging. So while my nutrition is not totally up to par, it is improving. Snacks consisted of fruit, my soda and coffee intake is down, and I stuck to very lean meats (with the exception of a burger on the 4th of July but missing out on that would have been un American).
What I Need To Improve: My nutrition. Duh. And drinking mucho amounts of water. I’ve been slacking on the water front.
Something I Have Learned: The gym is my friend. I haven’t worked out at a gym since I was 20 (not to say I haven’t worked out, just mostly at home), and I didn’t realize how much I missed it! I get into such a positive headspace when I’m at the gym. I am there for a purpose which really helps keep me motivated.
Next Week’s Goal: MEAL PREP. I have 100% dropped the ball on meal prepping and now that I’m living in a space where I have a full kitchen, I have absolutely no excuse not to. Meal prepping also helps me keep on track and eat super healthy which means those few hours of prep are super worth it.
