Update for Apr. 25

 

Workout: No workout today - it's a scheduled rest day.

 

Eat Right: Done, I have found that I like to put in all of my food for the day in the morning so I can plan what I can have throughout the day and then if things change, make adjustments.

 

No Fast Food: Still none for the course of the challenge.

 

Daily Cleanup: Toys, crayons, and bubbles all put away.

Update for Apr. 26

 

Workout: I had planned to, but we ended up taking my daughter over to my Mom's in the evening.  I have an extra off day scheduled for the weekend, so I will get my workout in on Saturday.

 

Eat Right: This was not a great tracking day.

 

No Fast Food: At least I got one thing done today.

 

Daily Cleanup: Spending the afternoon playing outside and the evening at my Mom's made for an easy cleanup tonight.

Update for Apr. 27

 

Workout: I got my lifting in today: squats, bench presses, and rows.  All felt easy.

 

Eat Right: I was actually way under my calorie goal for the day, so I had some extra snacky things because I didn't want to be so far below.

 

No Fast Food: None for me.

 

Daily Cleanup: I picked up a lot of books and blocks after the little one went to bed.

Update for Apr. 28

 

Workout: Scheduled rest day.

 

Eat Right: I was on track with my eating for Sunday.

 

No Fast Food: That's starting to be easy.

 

Daily Cleanup: We have a contractor coming in on Monday to gut and rebuild our bathroom, so there was a lot of late night cleaning for my wife and I.

Update for Apr. 30

 

To be honest, I accomplished none of my challenge goals for Tuesday - no workout, no calorie tracking, fast food, and no cleaning.  On the plus side, I did see the Avengers.  

 

Time to get back to the challenge on Wednesday.

Daily Cleanup: I did at least work on keeping the house clean those days.

Update for May 7

 

Workout: My one success of the day was working out.  Everything felt good with that.

 

Eat Right: I did not.  However, after being angry with myself I prepped my lunch and dinner for tomorrow, which should lead me to a successful day Wednesday.

 

No Fast Food: :apologetic:

 

Daily Cleanup: I used my late night time to prep meals for tomorrow.  I do need to get back to cleaning though.

You can do it. I always tell my kids "The first rule of holes: when you find yourself in one, stop digging" which is my way of saying once you recognize the issue, that is the moment to take steps to deal with it. It seems like you recognize the issue, and it looks like you are taking steps to deal with it by doing the meal prep. And I think the meal prep is a great substitute for cleanup... as long as you cleaned up the kitchen after your food prep ;) 

 

One thing I want to ask, could your exhausting Saturday have anything to do with falling off the wagon a bit? That can be expected in those cases. The key is to not let a couple of bad days become a week of bad days.

I don't think so.  I was really happy with my progress in terms of weight loss and working out and I got into the mindset that I can take a "cheat day", which spiraled into several days.
