Feb 21 -- A rocky couple of weeks
Thursday, February 21, 2013
I mean to do well with my Spark plan, but lately I feel like I'm failing. Between being sick, crampy, and migrained, I don't seem to be going anywhere. I wanted to push for 6 workouts a week but for two weeks straight the best I can hope for is 5; I know 5 isn't bad but it isn't good enough!
I have had trouble staying motivated. My food choices have been lacking at best and disgusting at worst (Cheetos and Sour Cream/Cheddar Chips???? NOT A GOOD IDEA!!!!!) I usually get my water without any trouble but there have definitely been nights that I've come up short lately. Ive had 60 oz of Diet Pepsi in the last 10 days after going totally soda free for months!
I went into Lent intending to improve my sleep habits but forcing myself into bed at 11:00p is harder than I expected. A lot of times I've gone to bed only to lay there for an hour or better unable to close my eyes. I'm pretty good about not using the snooze button but can't really say that I'm getting up with the first ring of the alarm since I usually wake to music and my youngest keeps turning the volume all the way down so that I oversleep!!!!
i don't want to be overly dramatic and say that the last 2 weeks have been pointless and that I feel like a failure, but obviously I'm not seeing the success that I want or need.
How do you get back on track when you feel like it's 1 step forward and 3 steps back? I don't want to give up but I know I won't keep going if I can't get back on track.
