Did you overdo it for Valentine’s Day on Thursday? So did I. What can I say; chocolate and I are well known companions. That’s no excuse though! It’s time to get back on track.
If you’ve ever felt like once you slip up on your daily meal plan or workout efforts, the rest of the day is shot, you’re not alone. Some days I let old habits or thoughts control my attitude too. However, you and you alone are in control of achieving your goals. It’s as simple as that. Every meal and every workout is an opportunity to start fresh. Even if you only made one healthy decision today, one healthy decision is better than nothing at all; “it’s only failure when you stop trying.”
The meal plan for this week is set at ~1,500 calories per day and frequency of eating is reduced to four meals daily. You’ve experienced what it is like to eat 6 and 5 smaller meals each day; after this week you should have a better feel for what works best for you. If you don’t prefer this change, repeat one of your favorite meal plans from weeks 1-6. Regardless, do what works best for your goals and schedule.
Monday begins with a lower body workout, Tuesday is upper body workout, Thursday is cardio day, Friday is active rest, and Saturday is topped off with a circuit. Find your Saturday workout with FitFluential here.
