So, this week is going to be a little crazy, what with:
-DH's birthday on Tuesday
-Alumni club reception Wednesday
-Oregon Chiropractic Association reception Thursday
-Good friend's bachelorette / wedding / reception this weekend
Thus, I have to be extra diligent with my goals and planning.
GOAL = Track nutrition all week, for everything. Let's go, TREX281 and BURNETTABBY, we can do this!
GOAL = 1450 calories / day or less
GOAL = 30 Day Shred everyday
GOAL = Try at least two new workouts this week - already have some in mind: new DVD I picked up at Goodwill yesterday and Barre3 class tomorrow with Kim E.
GOAL = Limit sugar intake!!!!
I know these goals are totally within my power to reach and that I've done them before. Just need to stay accountable this week and I will achieve them. Doing the work and smiling :)
Still 'ing along!

Bleh, I feel like I am in a fog. I have no energy, no motivation to get anything done, no desire to move forward. Funny enough, I am having plenty of anxiety about a number of different topics. Hmmmm, connection perhaps?
I know what has triggered all this - the change in the weather. It's as if two weeks ago, a switch was flipped to fall and my energy switched off. I've known for the past two years that I probably have Seasonal Affective Disorder and it is definitely being proven to me right now.
A bright spot is that I had my annual physical with my MD yesterday and we talked about this. I already have done a ton of research on this problem and counseled a few of my own patients about it. We both agreed that since we're planning on trying to get pregnant soon, taking antidepressants isn't a good option (and not one I want to explore anyway). So we agreed on trying light therapy and she wrote me a prescription for a light box. Hopefully the insurance will help pay for it, but that remains ambiguous from the benefits guide I have. I need to get started on some kind of therapy pronto because I cannot function like this.
No big surprise either that in the past few days, my eating at night has been out of control. This is classic SAD symptomology, even if it is totally frustrating.
I was so happy last week to see 149 on the scale. I know I can get back there and push past it, but with how I'm feeling right now, its going to take a lot of effort to accomplish that. I know I can do it - just have to keep going. *sigh* Is is time to crawl under the desk for a nap yet?

Ahhh! Still quite a challenge this morning with my daily Jillian workout, but improved from yesterday. The cardio segments in this level are killer!
I weighed in at 149.8 this morning!
Now, this might technically round to 150, and that's okay, but I am super excited to see anything beginning in the 140s on my scale. I can't believe how far I've come and that I am actually getting so close to my goal weight. Its definitely been a challenge, and looking back at the month of August, I was all over the map in terms of my eating. I have always been steady with my exercise, so that just tells me I really need to stay on top of my daily nutrition plan and follow it to the T, no matter where I am or what I'm doing. Its about making this goal achieveable and a priority over eating the cookies or whatever with my friends. My friends will still love me and I can stick to my goals.
Truckin' away and feeling GREAT today!
