It’s been quite a whirlwind week for me complete with a few
cheat meals snacks, like a couple chocolate covered Oreos. They were worth the calories I tell ya! But when stressful times hit, I do my best not to let myself fall completely off the wagon. I was almost going to count this week as a complete derailment when I remembered all the things I actually did well:
1. I hit my water goal most of the days this week with the exception of Wednesday.
2. I still managed to eat every 2-3 hours even if some of the meals were “off plan.”
3. I did my taxes (Hey, this is big for me okay?)
I’m not letting one or two or even three little slip ups this week get me down. A couple missed workouts due to just being mentally and physically exhausted won’t hurt me in the long run. Quite the opposite – I think I needed the time to rest. I’m doing my best to LISTEN to my body when it tells me “Okay enough CARDIO, you need to SLEEP already!” So I’m obeying. The time off was worth it too because this morning’s workout was LEGS and I put some new numbers on the bar today for my deadlifts and my squats. (Happy Dance!)
In the meantime, I put part of this quote on my bathroom mirror as a reminder to me. No matter how “bad” I was or may have been, you always (God willing) get a new day to start fresh.
Today will be better than yesterday.

Jen deserves props for this because she’s constantly surrounded by
horrible not so great food/snacks at her job. I applaud her efforts to stay away from temptation. 🙂
Kudos to Danielle for putting herself out there! Looking forward to seeing her progress!
