A recap of my weekly workouts from the previous week.
Happy Monday! Man what a long weekend! Michael had friends in town this weekend and I am so exhausted. We literally did ALL THE THINGS. And by we, I mean I participated in about 2/3 of the activities. I still had to work some on the weekend….I made brunch for a group of people on Saturday morning and then had to meal prep yesterday. But from the things I did, I am exhausted. I stayed up way past my bed time a few nights and it’s catching up to me.
I did keep my diet somewhat on track though and didn’t go wild on the alcohol. I had 1-2 drinks the whole weekend which I’m pretty happy about. I used to have to drink a lot to feel like I was going to have fun. Drinking doesn’t appeal that much to me anymore. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy it, but there is a time and a place now and I don’t have to get wild all the time.
Alcohol also doesn’t help me reach my goals. Long gone are the days where work was from 9-5 Monday-Friday and I could do whatever I wanted on the weekends without a care about work. Now, you will usually find me working at least one day on the weekends, whether that be computer stuff or meal prepping for people. Meal prep is not fun what you are hungover, trust me. Or ask my sister who tried to help me when she was visiting. It didn’t end well for her haha.
Alcohol also doesn’t help me achieve my performance or aesthetics goals. That might sound vain, but it’s the truth. If you find you are working hard during the week to then only let loose on the weekends and aren’t achieving some of your goals, look at your habits and tendencies on the weekends. Are they hurting or helping you in the long run? I’m not saying don’t have fun, but learning when to indulge/let loose and then keeping it in check the rest of the time has been one of the best things for helping me reach my goals.
