My all time favourite excuse.
Okay, so let’s be real, too busy is a pretty shit excuse. I’m not too busy, I just haven’t prioritised it, and sometimes that’s ok too.
So recently I feel I have put on a bit of weight and I’m not spending as much time on myself in terms of leading a healthy lifestyle. I got into a good routine a couple of months ago, where I was tracking my calories, increasing my non exercise active time and bullet journaling. That’s all gone out the window. Although I have been busier, I guess upon reflection, ‘too busy’ is definitely not the reason, as I’m averaging 4 hours a day of screen time – shocking!
If I’m being honest, it’s down to motivation, and where I’m at mentally with it. I know I want to get back on track, and I absolutely plan on doing so next week, but isn’t that always the case? In order to combat the slump, I am going to set some goals – and I guess if they’re written here, I have to do it right? I’m going to set goals that are measurable but also not based around my body image, no scales or measurements this next month.
Starting Monday, I
aim to will achieve these 3 things weekly:
- Hit 70,000 steps a week.
- Limit calories to 16,000 a week (with a focus on protein intake)
- Reduce my average screen time to 2 hours a day.
