How Important is Protein (and other nutritious food)??

Turns out- VERY.  I have been terrible the past 2 weeks with my nutrition.  I have basically replaced empty carbs for my protein.  Combine that with my not-so-great effort with workouts and I definitely am left with a set back in progress.

I feel lazier and slower.  I feel sluggish most of the time.  I am having a difficult time moving up in weight when lifting.  For a little while eating healthy didn’t seem to make that much of a difference.  But over the last couple weeks, it has become apparent to me that nutrition is super important when trying to reach a fitness goal.

Me lately

So I need to get back on track.  What worked well for me was when I was drinking a protein shake every day, and eating a salad with protein each afternoon.  Then I ate whatever we made for dinner (which usually was really healthy and ALWAYS with protein).  I always allowed myself a little sweets throughout the week (a cookie here, or a candy bar there) to help from binging on junk later.  I think I’ll go back to this plan.

Hoping to avoid this being me in a few weeks!

I’m going to try and get back on track and see if it helps again.  I REALLY want to meet my pull up goal.  It seems progress is about reflecting and adjusting….often.
