It is official... I now start my week on Tuesday... no more apologizing for running late. There is no late in a continuum of time and space.
This past week actually turned out pretty good. I failed less and achieved more. I lowered my standards and actually met most of my goals.
Meal Planning: I did follow my plans but had to throw out the 2 lbs of tilapia.. since I kept forgetting that I had no cornflakes and then it went bad. Ooops. I also didn't make pork sandwiches, we had leftover pizza... hey sometimes I have a life! Back off!
Exercise: For awhile there I thought I had pretty much shot my goals straight into the crapper but miraculously I actually decided that I was going to suck it up and stop sabotaging. I ended up EXCEEDING my cardio goals and I did do one pilates workout. I have finally figured out why I have trouble with the pilates... for 3.5 years I went to a trainer 2x a week... and so even though I loved it (and do love it!) there is a mental component to doing it on my own...of having to be constantly *present* and think "what's next" the whole time. Jeesh no wonder I always put it off.. the treadmill is automatic.. the pilates couldn't be more opposite of that. And seriously by the end of the day I just don't have any mental energy left to expend. But I'm trying... and I'm going to stick with one pilates workout a week until I think I have mastered this goal before I move on.
Cleaning: I vacuumed. This week I will do laundry on Tuesday & Wednesday and vacuum on Thursday.
