Sometimes you have to crawl

Well writing those silly lists really seem to make a huge difference. Once I have a plan in my head I will pretty much stick to it unless something drastic happens. Here was today's list:

  • Protein shake - Made a big one and I couldn't drink it before my workout.
  • 45-60 minutes of cardio - 60 minutes Done
  • Breakfast - the rest of my protein shake
  • Radford High school - Done
  • Have a snack - Yogurt, fruit and flatbread
  • Go to job interview - canceled :(
  • Lunch - wasn't hungry
  • Strength session - Done
  • Do some schoolwork (there's more then enough to keep me busy for days :) - eh, whatever
  • Have a substantial snack - Done
  • Go to class - not for an hour
  • Bring food to class so I don't eat when I get home - hummus and flat bread will hold me
I think I can handle the last two so I'm going to say it's been a good day.

Tomorrow will be a little harder since I'm in school all day but the plan is:

  • Protein Shake
  • 45-60 minutes of cardio
  • Breakfast
  • Work
  • Snack
  • Lunch
  • Snack - this one is a maybe
  • Strength
  • Dinner
In many ways it's easier since I'm in school but in other ways it's harder since I don't know what will come up during the day. But it's okay because I have a plan.

I've been doing this so long you would think it would be second nature by now. But I guess every once in a while I totally need to chuck everything and just go back to real basics. I did this when I weighed 225 lbs and wanted to lose weight. I planned out everything so that I would eat right and get some activity in. As time went on I still planned food but I let the activity planning slip a little. Recently it's been getting a lot worse. But you know what, if this helps it's easy enough to do. Probably boring to read but I really do blog for me :)

Well, there you go! One foot in front of the other and one day at a time. Keep it going.

The end is near
