week 2 - meh

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

All in all not a great week for me. I started strong and then kind of fizzled. Hit my 3 workouts, but only 3. Got in 96+ ounces of water 4 days, but missed even 64 the other 3 day, and snacked almost every night. I'm not sure what happened to my motivation. It's like it was there Tuesday night (last blog) and gone when I got up Wednesday. Maybe I should post a reward for it's safe return?

I've had more fun and games the last few days too. The new soap I'd been using led to a weird itchy rash that has made it really uncomfortable to sweat or exercise, or just to exist really. It was a severe enough reaction that I ended up in the doctor's office today and he gave me an antibiotic and a round of steroids. Good news is that he said I should feel some relief from the steroid within 6 hours of taking it. Bad news is that it hasn't been 6 hours yet. I have hope for the morning, and permission to take Benedryl along with the other meds.

So - overall I'd give the week a D-, but with extenuating circumstances.

On to this week - I need to move my weigh in back to Saturday (from Tuesday) so my next weigh in will be a short week. I actually prefer a mid-week weigh in, but my winter 5% challenge starts soon and those weigh-ins are always on Saturdays. I'm hoping to see at least a partial pound gone by Saturday. I will be focusing on drinking water throughout the day (instead of all at once), exercising as soon as I stop scratching (although at this rate it may actually count as cardio) and cut the night-time snacking. I have 2 more weeks this month to get it right, and then the month of February to add in some more baby steps.

Happy week all! What baby steps are you taking?

    Yikes! That must be some major scratching if you want to consider as cardio! ;-) Hope you don't scratch your skin off and that you feel better soon!
