So week two of my 12 week challenge is almost over and this week one of our focuses was “no excuses”. This was particularly difficult for me as I am a little to good a justifying my decisions to myself be it an expensive pair of heels or a whole party pack of Doritos. So in the spirit of ‘no excuses’ I thought I might do an accountability post. I am a full time psychology student and I also work 5 days a week. Right before week 1 started I lost someone very dear to me but I worked really hard to not fall into my old binge eating habits and even though I didn’t get to many of my workouts I kept my eating on point and actually lost some weight! Week two rolled around and due to a VERY busy study schedule with two tests and numerous assignments due I fell back into my Doritos and guacamole habit. I want to kick myself that I let university stress overtake my clean eating goals. I am now on study leave and won’t have a hectic class schedule to use as an excuse and I’m looking forward to this time to be able to work on me, and my goals. I know I can do better and I really want to do better. I set myself some very specific goals at the start of this challenge and I intend to see them through. My on going grief didn’t hold me back and I sure as heck won’t let stress hold me back any more.
From now on I want one of my focuses to be staying positive and calm, I work myself into a tizzy all too often and I become my own worst enemy. Not anymore.
Enjoy your weekend everyone!
