So I read the motivational e-mail, which dealt with setbacks. Well, between the Chemsitry course and getting the flu, I have really fallen off the exercise wagon - not to mention diet. All I want to do is focus on portion control and eating THE RIGHT STUFF:
But when I don't feel well I want comfort food, so my diet has been looking more like this:
So that's my "Single-Trouble goal," to get OFF the junk food and back into the healthy food, that can rebuild my health to begin with. But for starters, I think I will look for healthier, lower-cal versions of some of that comfort food. For instance, I have a pretty decent recipe for some lower-cal cupcakes, and I could have a Boca Cheeseburger with baked sweet potato fries. Still need to watch the total calories, though - the weight's not coming off if I don't!
I'm probably not recovered enough to start running again, in fact I've been coughing so hard it literally feels like I broke a rib!
I'm sure it's just a sprain, but it's really PAINFUL! So, starting today and for the next 2 weeks I want to get in a minimum 30 minutes of walking, at roughly 3.5 mph.
So there's my single-trouble goal, subbing healthier & lower-cal versions of comfort food, and my Fast-Break goal, walking 30 min. a day. Weird to start something like this on a Friday, but there's no time better than now, is there?
