Hey, what do you know... another flat week!! It has been a very stressful week. Daughter got sick and we had her in the ER at AI Dupont only to be told that she had a virus. That went away in like 2 days.
Then we had her back at the Dr. on Friday and Saturday b/c now she had a runny nose and was coughing. She has asthma as well so when she starts to cough, we don't mess around we get her tush to the doctor. Dr. said it was only allergies. So she's been on like 3 medications for allergies and 2 for her asthma for the last few days. She's doing much better now, but now I've got something going on.
Feels like a cold sort of, but maybe a minor cold. Just have the jacked up sneezing and runny nose. It's probably allergies as well. Thank god for Claritin!
I did something to my back yesterday cuz it felt like someone had a knife jabbed right in the middle of my lower back. It was painful to sit, walk, climb stairs, or do anything! The only thing that didn't seem to bother it was when I laid down.
I think that my problem now is that because I've lost 42+ pounds I've almost gotten sorta cocky about it. Like, 'eh if I have a bad week, so what, I've still lost 40 pounds'. That's the type of attitude that's gonna get me right back up to 270 in the blink of an eye.
It seems like I've lost that drive and desire I had when I started this back in April. If anything I need to focus even more to make sure I stay on track. People at work have definitely started to notice and I've been getting compliments every time I see someone who hasn't seen me in a while.
I still get up at 530am every day but instead of exercising, I'm on the computer.
Anyone have any suggestions on how I can get myself re-focused? I had a goal to be around 210 by October 26th but I don't think I'm gonna make it at this point. I've got about 5 weeks left and I need to lose 17 pounds.
I'm really struggling to keep going (with the plan, not LIFE!!) at this point.
