Meeting goals

Met my 2 goals of the day..
1. drink at least 8 glasses of water
2. 60min workout - DONE

My walk was a good one. I warmed up at 2.5mph for 5 minutes then bumped it up to 3.0 for the next 25 minutes. Half way throug I put it up to 5% incline. then did a 5 min cooldown after my 60 minutes.

I tried to bump it up to 3.2mph.. but my legs were not having it... I'll get there!
One day at a time, right? : )

Eating today was pretty good. I need to bump my protein up tho.. only at 1525calories today.. and that's once I have my graham crackers with PB. I know graham crackers are not pure clean food.. but I'm ok with that. I'm eating healthier than I ever have.. so I'm not stressing over graham crackers.

I'm making as many clean choices as possible. I've started having tuna sandwiches for lunch. I didn't have any mayo.. so I put some hummus in the tuna to cream it up (that's what I'm missing..) and it was still kindda dry. I found a vegan mayonaise today and it checks out clean and has that tangy creamyness I'm missing... and only at 10calories/Tbsp. Do-Able!

One of my long term goals is to not be so hard on myself. I'm notorious for this. Being a musician since I was 5.. I've always been a perfectionist. I remember one music teacher telling me frequently to not be so hard on myself. It happened today at work. I became very upset with the errors I made with my billing disaster... and I beat myself up if I didn't do the perfect work our or eat clean perfectly.

I really don't want to be that way... so If I'm only 80-85% eating clean.. it's still good for me. If I only do a 45 minute walk one day.. its OK... Just the fact that I am making these changes is good for me.

Anyways.. Really.. today was a good day! I'll just keep taking life one day at a time!
