Work is so incredibly stressful! I worked 11+ hours today and I wanted to go run the causeway after but I just didn't have it in me. Same for yesterday. I know it's not a good excuse but I have been just a mess with stress. Yesterday I broke out in hives because of it I think. That's the only explanation I had for it. I've been reading a book called the Four Day Win. It talks about having little goals everyday for an attainable 4 days and giving yourself a little reward everyday then a bigger one at the end of the 4 days if you complete every goal. Then linking them together. So having a lot of 4 day wins. 4 days doesn't sound like a very long time, I think it's good :o) So far, one goal is to leave a bite on my plate after every meal but they said to cut it in half because if that's been my goal for a while, it's obviously too big of a goal to maintain so, I have to leave 1/2 a bite left on my plate. Which is easy, it's supposed to be. So far so good with that one. I'm on day 2 :o) Then my second goal is to read a chapter every day of the book and tonight will be my first night on the next chapter. I'm still sore from the causeway Sunday night. I should be good for tomorrow, I really want to run it again.
I'm currently not tracking my food. I think I need to get back into that slowly. I know what I'm supposed to eat and how much so, I don't feel as obligated with that. As long as I leave food on my plate and start a regular exercise regime I'll be fine. :o) Baby Steps right?
