21 Days To (Re)Establish Some Habits: Day One

For the last couple of months, work has pretty much ruled my life. It's unfortunately caused me to misplace some of my healthier habits (not exercise though!). However, the major crunch at work is over now and it's time to re-establish some healthy habits. For the next 21 days, I'll be posting about it in the mornings in addition to my normal lunch time posts.

The habits I'm going to work on this week are:
  • Logging my food daily
  • Drinking enough water every day
  • Flossing at least twice a day
I'm uncomfortably close to my ceiling weight (127) and I know it's because I haven't been logging as much as I ought to. OK, that's a lie, I haven't really been logging at all. I'm not going to waste time architecting a grand meal plan for the weeks because I find that I'm not actually hungry for some of the things on the days they're planned. Instead I'll just put up the general food-scope of my day like this:
B: Two Eggs SSU topped with avocado on an English Muffin with strawberries on the side
MS: Fage 0% Cherry Pomegranate Yogurt w/a banana
L: Turkey Sandwich on an English Muffin with Strawberry-Avocado salad and Edamame on the side
AS: 2 Oats and Honey bars topped w/peanut butter and flax seed
D: Chipotle Carnitas and Guac salad
BS: Spicy Popcorn

I seem to have 6x600m repeats on my training schedule for today but I'm not sure if I'm feeling up to that today. It'll just have to be a game-time decision.

Here's to a good week!
