Losing steam lately
Friday, June 08, 2012
I really need to refocus my efforts here in June. I have not been eating right for the past week or so. I am staying within my calorie range for the most part. I have been skipping breakfast and going whole days without any fruits or veggies. I have been eating pizza and I won't lie, It taste great. I know the next day that I ate bad by the way my body feels. It's not a good feeling to feel heavy & sluggish.
I know that I will be o.k. & get back on track but I am not sure what happened.
I had been doing a lot of mowing and raking in the yard and counting that as my exercise. I have no problem with that as I burn close to 2000 calories mowing the yard for 3-4 hours, two days in a row. The problem came when the weather turned and it was raining for 5 days straight. Only 1 of those days, I went to the gym.
I think the pressure of finding a job is starting to get to me. My unemployment will be running out soon and I am having no luck at all finding work. I know that I will get a job when my assistance ends but the problem is, at that point, I am going to have to take a job making much less than what I am used to. There are a lot of jobs I could apply for but they are all offering about $5 an hour less than what I was making.
So, time to refocus and get back to the gym 5 times a week, and start eating right again. I know what I need to do and I WILL do it. I guess that while on a long journey like this, I will have little bumps in the road. At least I have still been good with staying below 2000 calories a day.
I hope you are all well and making healthy choices.
