Day 105-Day 111

Wow! A whole week has gone by! How does that happen? Time flies and I have nothing to show for the entire week except one big giant fail. 

I didn’t work out once, in fact I didn’t even make it to my weigh in. I ate OK during the week, but by the weekend it was like I had never seen food before. Couple that with the fact that I was at a volleyball tournament in Reno and it was Mother’s Day gave me free reign to eat a lot of crap. 

I also did not log everyday like I am supposed to. 

It’s as if one bad move snowballed into a week of chaos.

I could sit here and make up a bunch of excuses, but the bottom line is that the week is over and I have to make one of two choices: Either I continue down this bad path, or I pick myself up and get back on track as of right now. 

I am choosing to get back on track because I know how much better I feel when I eat clean and exercise.

I have prepped my food for the week and have looked at the calendar for the week. There are not any conflicts with my workout time, so I should be at the gym this entire week. I will also stay on track with logging my food, exercise, and thoughts.
