I guess the reason I haven't shared what I am up to specifically is that it really isn't news. I am at this weird place right now where things are going well. I have a workout plan I love, P90 for those just tuning in, I have tracked my food in MFP for 31 days. THIRTY ONE DAYS. I am not sure I have ever stuck to MFP for that long before. It is starting to feel like second nature. I measure/ weigh everything before I prep it/ make it. I eat pretty much the same kind of thing every day, and I am eating between 1700 and 2000 calories a day. I have been getting REALLY close on my Carb and Fat macros, but I am consistently 25 lower than my protein. I feel good, so I don't know if I should stress or readjust or what, but I am not worried about not hitting it. I am eating more protein than I ever have, so I consider that a win.
That's a new thing too. Winning. I have been working on accepting my successes for what they are (no matter how small) and not losing my shit in a gallon of ice cream over every failure. Its been a while (months) since my last binge, and I know that has to do with working on this.
I think another huge win for me has been consistency. I am 3 weeks in to P90, and while I struggled a little bit with it last week, I have a renewed drive to kick ass this week since next week I start part B. I am excited to have new workouts and keep moving forward. It really has become part of my routine. I think if you are struggling to find the motivation to workout, look at what you are doing. I wake up excited to workout. I enjoy the program, and I like doing it. When I hated what I was doing, I wouldn't do it! Finding happiness in my workouts has made being consistent WAY easier.
So overall I would say I am doing pretty well. I have a gym at my apartment that I keep thinking about visiting. They have weights and bars that I don't so I could really up my lifting game. I haven't made it over there yet, but I keep thinking about it. Maybe if I could find a good beginner lifting program I would add that to my routine. Bring it on, Pinterest.
So that's what's up with me. If you are into that sort of thing and want to know what I am eating and how I am sweating, MFP is the place to stalk me. I track all my food there (the good, the bad and the ugly. For real- there were M&Ms this weekend and I enjoyed every single one) AND I track my workouts there. I even update my status from time to time ;) And if pictures are more your thing, I instagram at LEAST once a day. And I am on Twitter. But I don't really tweet about workout or fitness stuff... so if you want to see the non fitness side of me, thats a good place to do that.... I don't know how this turned into a pimping out of my social media.... but I am on Facebook too ;)
