Good morning spark friends,
I have had a pretty rough couple of weeks, and I am having a really hard time to get back where I need to be.
On the last day of October and first two days in November, I had to go out of town for training. Because I was staying in a motel room, and I do not have a laptop, I didn't track my eating or exercise. I actually did really well while I was gone. I put the TV on a music channel and did 15-20 minutes of exercise at the start of each day, went to a Good Life gym with my daughter one evening and exercised on the treadmill and weights for an hour, and was mindful of what I ate in the day time. Each day our tables were laden with bowls of chocolate and treats, which I chose to ignore.
As soon as I got home that Friday at supper time, I had to get ready to go to the meeting, since that week was also our C.O.s visit. Our daughter and her family came for all 3 meetings that week, as they missed theirs. So it was a very busy week. In the end, I still hadn't tracked yet.
It has really thrown me off course. I was sick through most of October, which meant I was exercising so much less. Ugh! So now I am struggling to get back on track, and I need your help. I am tracking again and went back to listening to sparkcoach yesterday. I also did a 4-fast-miles workout last night for 50 min. It was a big push though, which tells me how much harder I make it on myself when I get off track. I have put on 3.1 lbs too. Aaahhh!!!!
I am so disappointed in myself.
