This is the second week of Best Body Bootcamp. Aside from the workouts, each week we have to set two goals. My goals last week were to stay out of the work candy bowl and to drink 60 oz of water a day. The candy bowl one was pretty easy. It’s just like a bunch of hard candy and totally not worth it. I just found myself getting up to get one when I was bored or when I needed a pick me up. But I wasn’t even enjoying it. So, that was actually a pretty easy habit to break. Although, does it count that I didn’t eat any on the weekends? Cause I mean, I didn’t, but I also wasn’t at work! I’m not a huge water drinker, so that goal was harder, but definitely doable, especially when I was working out.
While my goals were good, I felt like the water goal wasn’t going to have any significant effect on me, so for this week, I kept the candy goal and replaced the water goal with a new one – no after dinner (or sometimes dessert) snacking. This is something that I really, really struggle with. I messed up last night and had a bunch of cheerios. Today’s been good though, especially after my lame dinner.
I have always loved canned tuna. A co-worker had some today and she and I were discussing how while other people think it smells awful, we think it smells good! After that conversation, I really wanted some for dinner. I was still hungry though and had a piece of bread with a slice of cheese. I count that as part of my dinner and not after-dinner snacking though.
Today’s workout was intervals + abs.
Sometimes when I do intervals, I jog for the recoveries, sometimes I walk. Today I walked. It was still all good though. This ended up being 3.75 miles so I was cool with that.
Off to do something that’s not snacking. I just need to figure out what that something is. Easier said than done.
