Workout Week: Short-Term Goals

Gooooood morning! I Hope you are off to an awesome start this Monday! The weeks have been flying by since we bought the house. Six weeks already! In six weeks we unpacked most of our boxes, painted the living room, white washed the brick fireplace, planted fifty trees, bought a mower, and had our first visit from the plumber.

The plumber had to fix the filter inside the well. Of course, our homeowner’s insurance didn’t cover the bill. That would be too convenient! The filter broke because we literally ran our well dry after watering the trees and grass all at the same time. I know the well is shallow, but I obviously didn’t know I had such a limited supply!! I’m kicking myself because if I didn’t water the stupid grass, I wouldn’t have had a problem. You live and you learn I guess. I still love the house one hundred percent!
I’m also one hundred percent ready to kick my diet into full force this week. I’m super successful about setting short-term goals, so I don’t get burnt out. Once I’m in the swing of whatever goal I set for myself, it then develops into a habit, and I no longer think of it as a challenge. I trick myself into thinking it’s temporary when it’s really not. I know how to overcome my weaknesses, yet its a matter of working at it. Ever since my move, I’ve been procrastinating big time about cutting certain foods out of my diet. I would tell myself I’m too busy and deserve this treat. I know darn well that is the last thing I need to be eating.
If you hit the gym hard like me, you know the mental and physical strength it takes to get through a workout. You also know how much exercise it takes to burn fat. The more crap you eat, the less fat you will shed. My body is extremely sensitive to sugars and starches. I practically have to eat zero starches and sugars to see flat belly results. I easily get discouraged thinking about it because I love to eat the bad stuff. 
And so my journey begins today with nothing but transparent foods. Haha I’m kidding. Clean eating, no cheating is the goal for this week. I’m looking forward to updating you next week about my progress! I challenge you to pick a weakness of yours, address it, and destroy it! Let’s pick at our issues little by little, and before we know it, we will never look back.
