Good morning. Another week begins! Last week was essentially a vacation, so I really need to crack down and get the book written. The publisher’s due date is RAPIDLY approaching! Eck!
My mom and I took Jamesy for a nice, long walk this morning:
We walked for 32 minutes and completed 1.68 miles. My mom normally walks 1.0 mile every morning, but she tackles HUGE Tennessee hills. Florida is quite flat!
When we came home, I did some strength training. I have been such a slacker lately with sit-ups and push-ups, and I’m determined to re-acquire my good habit of morning strength training.
- 100 sit-ups
- 40 push-ups
- Two 30-second planks
- Ten 10-second wall squats
My banana oatmeal contained:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 sliced banana
- Toppings: almonds, coconut, flax
Oatmeal, I missed you!
Question for you all:
When you feel like you’ve been “slacking” on your healthy habits, how do you get back into the swing of things? Do you prefer to throw yourself wholeheartedly into your old habits or slowly try to reintegrate the habits? Or use another technique?
Speaking of challenges, I’m announcing an awesome month-long blog challenge (with prizes) to help keep everyone in shape over the holidays! Will announce at lunch!
I get back into the swing of things by just picking up where I left off. If I have an indulgent date night, then I’ll have a clean couple days afterward (usu. my body automatically craves this). Sometimes if I’m just feeling stagnant in my healthy habits, I’ll find some new, fun one to integrate.
