"...Dust yourself off and try again"
"Maury: What do we do when we fall off the horse? Hmm. We get back on.
Derek: Sorry, Maury. I'm not a gymnast."
Ok, I may not be a gymnast, But I'm getting back on the horse!
Ok, so it's week 5 of Revolt and we are getting past the first month and onto the end of the first Uprising! I have to admit, this last week was a little rough, I did see a small gain on the scale, probably due to all the Easter fun. Then on top of that, I was discouraged to see how drastically our family's budget went up! I know eating healthy cost more, but I was shocked to see that it doubled!
So, I'm not going to be discouraged, I am going to keep pressing on towards my goal. I can't let a few bad days ruin how hard I've been working for weeks. Because I do feel so much stronger and healthier than I did even a month ago! I am going to be substituting some of the approved veggies and other food items if necessary for more affordable ones at the grocery store and trying to shop around more than I was able to the last month.
In the past, I would typically shop on Tuesday's because my mom would be here to help with the baby and lend a hand. Any mom know's how hard it is to hit up multiple stores with a little baby on their own. The thing about Revolt is, that they post the next week's menu late on Fridays so I wasn't able to shop at multiple stores and get the best prices so late in the week, since I was at the mercy of whomever could help me shop that day.
So instead of being upset about the system. I am just going to have to learn how to adjust to make it successful for my family and our budget. There's a learning curve with everything in life I suppose!
On a side note: It's FINALLY SPRING IN CHICAGO! WHO-HOO!
I'm so excited to bust out the jogging stroller and get moving in this weather!
Happy Spring Everyone!
