So last week was a very difficult week to get through and it really put this diet/routine to the test. 🙁 I regretfully say that I mostly failed when it came to the diet portion. But didn’t lose out too bad when it came to the workout routine.
So why did it happen? It happened because we met up with friends in the middle of the week for drinks and it was just hard to say no or avoid. We had Mexican food and while Corn Tortillas were used and I didn’t finish all my food, the 2 tequila shots and 2 margaritas and prior Peroni beer definitely put it over the top. Additionally, there was a BBQ we were attending this week that I originally thought was on Saturday – our “pig out” day. Turns out it was Sunday instead. So, we tried to limit what we ate (1 burger and more water instead of Sodas) But we missed having 30g of Protein within 1 hour of waking up and didn’t even eat breakfast at a proper time. We scarfed down a muffin and nutter butter cookies and a watermelon slice prior to the burger.
I think due in part to ill timing, a lot of routine was missed and that’s really my own fault and I can accept it. I have to learn from it and realize that reoccurring fails like this can definitely yield bad results.
How do I feel? I feel alright. A bit tired, not too bloated or heavy, but a tiny bit sluggish. I missed my Evening workout yesterday and missed my morning workout today. I ate dinner last night about an hour late and missed the final snack. Routines are pretty hard to maintain and I just need to try harder.
