This was me last week .. Week 3 of the 8 week Fast Track Challenge. I was tired and really had to push myself to get out the door to do my scheduled workouts.
I won't say I was hungry, but I was craving everything. I can't even tell you exactly what I was craving. I just wanted something. You know that "stand in front of the pantry door scanning" type of feeling.
Thankfully, I don't have a lot of "treats" in the house and sadly nothing that I was craving!
Did I also mention that there was no change in the scales! Hmmm, not happy. That was a bit of a wake up call!
This week, I'm back in the right head space. I won't say I'm following the exact menu plan ... well, to be honest, I've always wandered around the plan a bit, never following it exactly.
What I am doing though is focusing on eating the right foods and using the plan as a bit of a guide, especially at dinner times. If I'm hungry I'll eat something that will provide me with nourishment, not a quick fix. Again, I'll say it's great that someone has planned my menu!
I'm also feeling a lot better in my training sessions this week. I still have to ignore myself if I have to get out of bed early for a run! Do it, don't think, works every time.
A yoga class this week also helped me refocus. Oh my poor hips, they felt all stretched out for a day. All good now!!
What do you do if you veer off track?
Are you able to get yourself back into your routine, or do you get run over by that wagon you fell off of?
If you are off track now, get back on!! Don't leave it any longer! You made that commitment to yourself .. stick with it to the end!
Stay healthy & active!
