It’s been a month since I started The No More Excuses Diet and it’s safe to say I haven’t really been sticking to it that well. I am saddened to write this but it is the truth. My eating has been so-so and my workouts haven’t really been that great either.

I was doing really well when it came to drinking my water and not eating 3 hours before bed but like anything, life has gotten in the way. When my job ended in June, my schedule changed and it seems as though that has had a huge impact on my summer diet unfortunately.

Fitness wise, I did complete my plank challenge which went over really well and I was pretty happy with the results. My next challenge is a wall-sit challenge and I believe we are on day 13, I had a minor set-back when I got sick over the weekend but I tried to get right back at it tonight.

Goals for the next month:

-try kickboxing class 

-bump up my water intake 

-seriously stop eating 3hrs before bed

-limit my coffee intake to once/day

Why is working out and sticking to a diet so hard? I am pretty disapointed with msyelf that I have been slacking on this, espeically since I have a wedding in August that requires a bridesmaid dress. I hope I can pull it together and get my butt back in shape. Anyways, I hope I can stick to a few of these over the next month. Wish me luck!

    Diet can be tough. But you’ll be able to do it once you see the results. 🙂

    I think sticking to diets is hard because they don’t generally work. It’s really all about changing your lifestyle, and for me that worked best to do it gradually.
    And I used to love kickboxing classes, I hope you find one you love!

    Oh, don’t be disappointed! Just figuring out a plan that works for you is key. You’ll get there. It is not so easy, i know, but just wanting to make the change is such a great start!! Best of luck!

    It is so hard! I have been doing Weight Watchers and summer is killing me. It can be so hard especially when there are schedule changes. You will get a groove and find what works for you! Good luck!
