I had a rough past couple of days. My eating has been off, I've taken 2 days off of exercise and my stress was really high. First, we had to put together the new fish tank which was a LOT harder than I thought it would be, and took about 10 hours total. I got some unintentional strength training from that which left me incredibly sore all over (carrying a 270 lb fish tank down the hill and into the apartment was HARD). Then I had some stuff with my family on Thursday... I won't go into details, but it stressed me out badly. The combination of physical and emotional stress took their toll, and I felt myself just grabbing for the nearest food and stuffing it in my mouth to feel better these past few days. I knew I should be tracking, I knew I should be cooking, I knew I should only be eating when PHYSICALLY hungry, but I just was so drained and apathetic I let it happen.
After a good night's sleep and some meditation, I am ready to let go of all of those stressors and refocus on my health. I won't let this derail me another second. My goals are too important to just give up on.
-Stay in calories and track everything
-Drink at least 16 glasses of H20
-Cook rainbow chard and white chicken chili
-Honor my body with all of my food choices
