Well, our latest homework in preparation for BLC14 is to come up with a back up plan for when life throws a monkey wrench into your goals.
I have to admit that this was a hard one for me to come up with, but as luck would have it, life decided to throw one of those monkey wrenches at me today.
While I am busy participating in the Amazing Race challenge, eagerly looking forward to the BLC14 challenge, and getting my girls off to first day of school, a vicious head cold struck me and has been making me miserable.
So how did I handle it... even though I did not have the energy for a real workout, I did not become a slug on the couch. I stayed active at a slow pace and took breaks. I drank lots of water and really controlled my eating. Hopefully, tomorrow I will feel much better.
As for a regular back up plan
If life gets to busy for an extended workout, I can still fit small bouts of activity throughout my day (as a matter of fact I really like those GOYB challenges).
I can keep some calorie friendly treats in the house so that when my friend who comes to dinner once a week, brings a decadent dessert, I will not feel deprived if I do not indulge.
No matter what else happens, I can always fit in one more glass of water, a short walk, and a kind word to myself!

I am not really a beach person, but for the sake of making my kids happy, we went for a couple of hours today. Although I liked helping the girls catch crabs, I'm not fond of sweating in the sun. If nothing else I guess I got my Vitamin D intake today.
Did well on my calorie intake today, but could have used a bit more exercise.
