As I started this challenge and plan to go back to training for half marathons I promised to keep it "real" as they say and tell you the truth. It helps to see how a working mom, wife, friend, faith filled person can make it work and I plan to get back to the place where I did make it WORK!
This is what a FAILED week looks like. I will be honest with one point, I do think when you start a plan to get yourself back on track your mind and body finds a way to rebel a little and I think these past four days was part of that. That's when you just tell yourself that today is a new day and start fresh or this is a new week and find a way not to repeat your mistakes.
My work schedule has picked up where I am working until late in the evening and attending a different function several days a week. What goes with functions but ........no other than food.

Ok, this has to be a record for eating out the most times in a 4 day period. Lets just say I failed this week. My workouts were 3 out of 4 which was great but my meal plan was out the window. If I had one extra second it was spent at the gym and I never found the time to grocery shop or make pre made meals.
So this week my goal is to have all meals planned and purchased. My husband is more than happy to cook when I cant so we put a schedule in place to help with. If I must eat at a function I will eat as light as possible and follow it at home with a salad.
The lesson learned these past four days is ....plan plan plan!!!
