Getting back on the horse- we all do it.

So getting back to it has been really scary, Im not sure why I think I was having a mental block. I was afraid to go back to the gym because I was sure I had lost all of the progress I made. I was making excuses on eating healthy because of my financial state. Finally I said that is enough Grace- get your chunky butt back to that gym and find ways to eat healthy on a budget! I have and I have been going strong for two days; granted it doesn't seem like long but I am proud because I haven't given in to temptation at all. I went to the gym yesterday and I will be going again tonight.

We all have those falling off the wagon times and we know inside our hearts when we are back on, it is just a feeling of motivation and healthfulness. I feel great and I fell happy now, for a month or so I felt depressed and I didn't care about my body any more, I felt like I was in a hole I could not get out of. So my new plan of action is...

Breakfast
snack
lunch
snack
dinner
maybe snack.

It is traditional and I like it. I have been making my food from scratch and boy does it taste good.

  1. yay! getting back to the gym is always hard. It's awesome that you got past the block.

    I love cooking from scratch, it always taste better and in the long run is much cheaper. There are a ton of sites online that you can get recipes for a budget too :)

  4. Good work, Grace! As for not "gracing" the gym for a while, once you have worked out, your muscles remember. I bet you won't have any trouble getting back in the groove with your good eating plan too. I bet you feel better already.

  7. I always have troubles staying motivated past the first week or two of any workout/diet plan. I tend to switch it up and set different specific goals for myself every few weeks.
    Proud of you! :)
