Just a few things I need to start doing regularly:
First of all-STRETCH. I am so bad about not stretching. I'm extremely tight and not flexible at all because of that. I just hate doing it! I was pretty good last week-stretched almost every day, now just need to stick with it!
Secondly, I want to aim for 120 grams of protein per day. I currently take in about 100 grams, but in order to build muscle, which is my goal, I need to get in 20 more grams to get the recommended 1 gram of protein per lb of body weight. So really, that just means a second shake a day. I have been taking one right before bed and after my workouts, but I also want to start having one before my workouts.
Third thing I want to work on is getting more Omega 3s. I don't think I get enough fat in my diet. Well, actually, I have recently been eating more nuts and eating the Omega 3 eggs(and I eat the yolks). I also eat peanut butter and sometimes mayo on my sandwiches. But I really need to get more POLYunsaturated fats. I hate fish, so that's out. Every now and then I eat tuna, but not on a regular basis. I have some ground flaxseed, but can never remember to eat it! So I'm going to try to eat more flaxseed and have tuna twice a week.
Number 4 is to remember to take my multi-vitamin daily!!
Number 5 is going back to my daily bible study. It's been a month since I've done my bible reading, and I HATE it. I am definitely going to start setting time aside to do it from now on, every single day. I've really been slacking. My faith is the most important thing to me, and I need to give God the time He deserves from me! I have to get my priorities straight, and spend more time with Him.
And last, but definitely not least, I need to start eating more veggies!!!!!! I just don't know what to do-I HATE vegetables....but I know that they are good for you, and I want to eat them. My goal is to get 2 servings of veggies a day, but right now I am lucky if I get in 2 servings of veggies a week! Someone please give me some ideas on how to incorporate vegetables into my diet! Like maybe some ways to make them taste better because I truly can't stand them!
