My diet lately hasn’t been too bad. I’m trying to cut down on carbs so it hasn’t been easy (I work at a bakery!!! It’s pretty much hell). Some days are easier than others. Last week, I did pretty good until the weekend rolled around. I don’t know why, I guess it’s mental, but the weekend just signals indulgence in my brain. Although I did “okay” (relative to other weekends) it definitely could have been better. Why, when the weekend rolls around, does healthy eating fly out the window? Does this happen to anyone else?
I don’t really understand it, but I guess I just need to remind myself that I am in control of what I eat. Not the weekend. You can’t boss me around weekend..not anymore!
Anyway, I’ve been doing pretty well overall. Since it’s still the beginning of the week, I guess more for me because my work schedules weird, I feel like I need a kickstart to keep this week healthy. I pretty much do the same things every week: go to work, workout (which usually involves weights, plyometrics, etc.), other random stuff. Since my workouts are kind of similar each week, I’m heading to yoga today!
I like yoga, it’s just never a top pick for me because I like high intensity workouts, or maybe it’s because I’m a huge embarrassing failure (anybody remember that in Tommy Boy? Classic film) at yoga. No matter how bad I am, I will say yoga always makes me feel good. Every time I leave a yoga class, I want to eat better, I think more about the choices I make and how they will effect my body. For some reason, it’s not as hard, the healthier choices seem more natural. This always happens after yoga-not running or weight lifting, but yoga.
I don’t know, but I know I can count on that feeling so I’m headed to yoga today to clear my mind and in a way, clear my body. I’ll let you know how I feel afterwards!
Are there any workouts or classes that keep you motivated to eat right? Are the weekends tough for you too?
