The summer has gotten away from me. It always has a way of doing that. Work is busier than I expected, there are more travel plans. Before I know it, July is over. It’s hard to believe that August will be upon us in just one short week.
Throughout my healthy living journey, I’ve always found summers to be the most difficult. I travel the most during these months, and my eating is not always consistent. Eating healthy was not at the forefront of my mind during our recent trip. While I started everyday with Shakeology, I didn’t eat as well as I could have.
I could beat myself up over this, and in the past I would. But I’ve moved beyond that way of thinking. It’s not healthy for me. While I don’t like having “cheat meals” or “falling off the wagon,” I know it has a way of happening. I tire of that lifestyle after a few days and snap myself right back into clean eating anyway.
So I am “restarting” in a way. I’d like to really hone in on my nutrition over the next 6 months before the wedding. While I already feel confident and beautiful in my dress, I want to shine on my wedding day. I want to be the proof of hard work! I want to have nice arm muscles, too 🙂
I know nutrition is the key to this. That’s why I’m starting the 21-Day Fix again and completing the 21 Day Fix Extreme workouts. This way of eating works for me. I like the visualization of the container system, and I know I’m getting in all of my macronutrients this way. It’s easy — as long as you plan. And the workouts are a killer, too.
I wanted to write a short post about this restart to remind you that this is natural. Sometimes we lack consistency. But the key is getting back into the routine. A restart. A fresh outlook. Sometimes a vacation will give you the motivation you need. I’m thankful to get back on track!
