This weekend was "off". I was completely "off" my routine and not on plan. I went away for the weekend and didn't prepare. It's funny how you slip back into old habits when you're not prepared. But I have no regrets. I had fun, and now it's back to business. It is what it is. This is real life, and I know that these "off" periods are always going to be a part of my life. I am not excusing bad behavior, but I know that everything will not always be "perfect". My goal is that one day, I will have been on plan and living this lifestyle for so long that my "off" days won't really be "off" days at all. Does that make sense?

My plan to make up for this weekend is to be perfectly back on plan this week and to put in extra cardio time at the gym. Today's eating was at about 80% and I put in 1 1/2 hours at the gym. One hour of cardio (Bike and elliptical) and 20+ minutes of weights (upper body). After 3 days with no gym, my body was CRAVING exercise. I NEVER thought I would say that!

Tomorrow should be better as far as eating because I am going grocery shopping. I needed to go days ago but my unplanned weekend meant no grocery shopping and no laundry, lol. Like I said, it was worth it! I also drinking all my water again and have been peeing like crazy all day!

Another thing I must start doing tomorrow is journaling my food. I haven't journaled in over a week and I know that I am much more accountable when I am journaling.

Seems like there was something else I wanted to say, but I am wiped out! I promise to have more interesting things to say TOMORROW!
