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.

Planning for next week

 Time to return to school. As much fun as I've had working on all my stuff this week, it's time to go back and finish up the year. I...
