Well, TFB readers, it’s been one full week of the ROCKtober mission (in case you missed it, this is what’s happening with my month-long lifestyle reboot). Let’s revisit the goals, shall we?
The junk food one was easy – I went through and did a full sweep before we even started ROCKing, and I haven’t brought anything “bad” in since. I’ve been hitting it on yoga – went once on Friday and once on Monday, definitely averaging the 1X/week goal.
Salads were lunch every day, including a really tasty one from DEN (just next door to my work!) yesterday. I’ve hit my water goal every day except one (and I got 88 ounces that day, so it wasn’t nothing). And our dinners have been veggie-tastic (and home cooked!) each night.
I know you’re all wondering about the booze, what with my weekend party time at the Clarke Quay Oktoberfest – but again, I said I’d only be drinking 2X in the week, and I stuck to that – two glasses of white wine with the girls at dinner on Friday; a few (cough) beers at Oktoberfest on Saturday. And not a lick of booze otherwise!
On the con side of things, Nick and I have yet to be together for a weekend swim, so we’re going to try and hit that this weekend in Bangkok (we specifically chose a hotel with a pool to make this one happen!). The Singapore haze has made it near-impossible to run, so I had zero runs this week (sure, sure, I know what you’re thinking – you can make excuses or you can make it happen, get on a treadmill, yada yada) – but hopefully that too will be remedied in Bangkok. Crossfit also happened zero times this week as well, although I was able to get into the gym and lift twice in a WOD-inspired fashion, so I won’t count this as a total loss.
And I’ll be completely honest – I’ve been 50/50 on the positive self-talk. Some days I wake up and go, “yes! you’re on track! You rock!” and other days I wake up and say, “you’re not doing enough. Get your a*s to 6:30am Crossfit class, you lump.” It’s a work in progress, as things like this always are.
On a final (and VERY positive!) note – I’m down three pounds on the week! Just goes to show that this whole diet and exercise thing really does wonders on the scale.
Did you set a ROCKtober goal? How has your progress been so far?
