I know a lot of people that have made a goal of being healthier in 2015. This is the end of February. This is the time where people tend to give up on the goals that they have made.
DO NOT GIVE UP!
YOU CAN DO THIS!
My week in review
Last week wasn't the best for me workout wise. I tend to do a lot better when I have others around me. It pushes me. Last week the weather here was not the best and the schools were closed. When schools are closed the programs I do get cancelled. Even though I want to work out at home I have have hard time being motivated to do so.
This week was MUCH MUCH better! I didn't get my Zumba in but I did get my lifting in. It felt great to work out.
Let me just say that when I don't work out I get grumpy. Last week was not a fun week for those around me. Grumpy and tired.
My diet is going well. I am not craving carbs (the bad kind) as much as I was before.
I struggle with my snacks the most.
This week I plan on making a list of snacks. I will share the list with you of course.
I also need to shake up my menu a little. I am eating the same thing pretty much all of the time. Even though I am not tired of what I am eating, I am ready for something new to add into the mix.
Water is amazing! When I find myself feeling hungry even though I really am not, I drink more water. My goal is a gallon of water a day. I use one of my blender bottles as my guide. I have it with me ALL OF THE TIME!
CamelBak has a great calculator to let you know how much water you should be getting in each day.
For those who may be struggling with water intake each day, here are a few things that can help.

As always, having a friend that will hold you accountable helps. Don't be offended if they ask you how you are doing with your water intake. If you have to stop and think about it that means you are probably not drinking enough.
Yes, you will be going to the bathroom often. Which is a good thing. Your body is washing all of the junk out of it the way it is supposed to. And if your pee is clear that is a great thing. Clear pee equals a hydrated body.
Keep up the great work everyone.
This journey is a tough one, but one that will you can, we can, get through.
