Now that I have won the Battle with The Crud, I'm am back on track toward consistency with clean eating and training--taking one day at a day. Each day has become a goal day: 1. Eat 4-6 clean meals a day, emphasis on protein and complex carbs; 2. train with either kettlebells or weights and half-marathon training or crossing training and tennis, as appropriate; 3. get 7-8 quality hours of sleep a night.
I had gained about 2 lbs over the last week and a half. It's not a dire circumstance, but 2 lbs gained is not part of the grand plan! I'm not discouraged or upset--just more motivated and determined to be consistent with my lifestyle.
Consistency really is the key for me now. My body has gotten use to eating pretty clean, so if I treat even just a little too much and don't incorporate enough consistent training--here comes the pounds. The good thing is that I know this about my body. I know how it reacts to certain conditions. But, knowledge in of itself is not truly empowering. Making positive changes with the knowledge is empowering!
