Last week was the first official week of my personal fall fitness kickstart. While I was silently, asking myself “am I skinny yet”, I was making strides in making fitness a habit. With the rainfall, I was sleeping through the 5:45 am alarm and unable to get to the gym for the morning training session. Since my bed was winning the battle in the mornings, I made sure to get my fitness on after I got home from work.
In the afternoons, I walked the half mile to my friend’s office to commute home. After I got home, I changed into workout clothes and walked/jogged the half mile to the gym for a workout with my trainer then walked home.

There is a laundry list of things I want to change about my nutrition, this week the focus was eating a clean dinner. I failed on Thursday, when I had chicken tenders and fries with ranch dressing while watching football. Most nights, I’ve had veggies and a source of protein because I stocked the fridge food last weekend. Lunches have been better, with a variety of veggies and reducing the amount of salad dressing on salads.
The goal this week is to log everything I’m eating into My Fitness Pal to get a better idea of what I’m eating, this will make it easier to see where to make changes.
