Ok, apparently I *can* relax for a month. :) The day right after I declared my commitment to the Shred/tracking/Cardio for March, I came down with a horrible cold/flu. It was just a head cold at first and I tried to work out through it, but it killed me and I spent the next few days recovering from that. And I'm still blah. I think I'm slightly better now, though still congested. But my quarter is almost over, so there's less stress. I just feel so hopeless now. I haven't been to the gym so I haven't weighed myself but I feel HUGE. Like, way bigger than when I started this 'journey'. Blah. It's very frustrating and I can't seem to find my way back even to my pre-SP weight. I'm going to go to the gym tomorrow for a light workout and weigh myself then just to see where I'm at. And then I'll probably be thrown into a depressive state for a few hours. :) Just kidding. I'm kind of just giving in. If my body wants to be fatter right now, so be it. I'm changing my focus to increasing my energy levels. So I'm adding new goals for the next 32 days. I figure I'm already on the Lent plan, I might as well ride that as much as I can. I have stuck 100% with my Lent commitments. Thought the only physical goal was no pop. Drinking no pop has made me really thirsty. What do people drink?!? Milk doesn't touch the thirst for some reason. The Crystal Light stuff is good but you can only drink so much of it. And besides that, there's water. Joy. Anyway, my new 'energy' goals are:
1) Multivitamin every day
2) Exercise 20 min a day
3) 4 glasses of pure H20 a day
While trying to eat less empty food and more nutrient-rich food. I have issues with that. Sugary food makes my mind happy.
So let's start again, shall we? I can't wait for the weigh-in tomorrow. It could be anywhere from 125-135 I think. Blah.
