I've had such a hard time getting spark to load on my iPad that I just gave up waiting. When I'm at work I'm using a MiFi so it's slow sometimes. But I'm back today
As for last week I continued my plan although I wasn't feeling well. I didn't get in any workouts. My weigh in on Saturday showed I gained a pound. Not bad...
This week I'm continuing on my plan. Trying to stay within my calories and carbs. This is a hard thing to learn. Food is so complex I see why so many people eat the same thing. Yet I haven't given up. I didn't workout yesterday but I did everything else I needed to do. I finished my gallon of water, ate well and stayed focus.
Yesterday I created a daily check list to be sure I did/do everything I need to 100%. I have set up the list to be sure I do the following: drink my gallon, morning prayer, stay within my calories and carbs, evening prayer of thanksgiving, at least one household chore, moisturize and seal my hair, knee stretches and strengthening, cardio, weight training and journal. At the end of everyday I ask myself two questions. How did I do today towards my goal? What can you do better tomorrow. I do an end of the week recap also. It will hopefully make me more obedient to my plan, knowing at the end of the day I have to hold myself accountable. I want more check marks than "x"s.
My knee has been feeling really tight lately probably because I haven't been doing my therapy exercises. I know, I know...I've placed it on my to do list so that I get it in daily. I did manage to wear a low heel to church on Sunday, but was not feeling confident when walking in them. I put a household chore on the list so I'll stop leaving all my house duties to the weekend. Not that I have much to do with only me in the house, but it does add up. This will also include my bill management time too.
So that's my update. For today I'm on high carbs. Got my gallon ready, food on deck and I will workout tonight before church. Like my spark friend Sugar said my honey will be home before I know it and right now I got 20 days until he's back. What can I accomplish on this journey in that time? I'm working towards a whole lot...if I don't let things get in my way. My two biggest foes....laziness and excuses
I think I'm going to take out a hit on both of them...laziness and excuses must die
