Day 3 of 30 :: Checking in

Not gonna lie.  It’s day 3 and I already wanna tell this 30 day challenge to SUCK IT!

I’m tired of thinking about my calories/what’s going in my mouth…I just want an unsweet tea (I remedied this one, but I’ll get to that later)…I don’t want to exercise…I don’t want to care about what’s for dinner and make sure it’s healthy/calorie countable…

I have other crap to do!

I’m a horrible multi-tasker apparently.  When I’m thinking about family dinners and exercising, everything else goes to the crapper.  My laundry is taking over and I don’t want to think about how I’m going to sweat today.



I wrote out 5 days of workouts & meals (one off day b/c of Halloween), but I’ve already skipped a dinner and while I’ve been active for at least 30 min for the past two days, it wasn’t what I planned on doing.


Okay, I’m done whining for now…I think.  Sometimes you just gotta vent (or how my husband lovingly refers to it..whine ;)).  Regardless of my less than stellar execution so far, I’ve stuck to the guidelines I set for myself.

More water…check!
72 oz Monday & Tuesday


At least 30 min of exercise…check!
Walking on Monday, C25K training & a 7-min workout on Tuesday


Tracking food intake…check!

Remember in the beginning I told you I remedied my unsweet tea problem?  Well, see, there’s a school of thought that says if it’s unsweet, it counts towards your fluid intake for the day and you just need to be concerned with how much caffeine you’re taking in.  And while all of my water logged has been straight water, yesterday I decided I needed an amendment to my rules pertaining unsweet tea.

Amendment: As long as 48oz of pure water is drank per day, I’m allowed unsweet tea.  Preferably decaf, but not a must.

What I wanted to accomplish in these 30 days was to drink more water and less caffeine.  I had gotten into a habit of nursing a large unsweet tea in the morning with breakfast and then not drinking anything else until dinnertime.  Hence probably only getting in about 24oz of un-caffeinated beverage a day.  With my new amendment, I will have to drink 48oz before rewarding myself with some tea.  😉

Moving forward I need to…

plan my day better
plan breakfast better
get at least one load of laundry done per day
not be so hard on myself

How about you?  How’s your 30 days going so far?

  1. i went to Zumba class last night for an hour which was a goal of mine. i think as a result, i drank 3 full waterbottles of water (mine is 20 oz approximately), so yesterday was good. today i’ve only had one bottle full so far, and it’s already 3pm. darn.
