I think I am going to have a good weigh in at the end of this week. That being said, I think if I had have stayed rigidly to my plan I would have been a pound or two lighter at the time of my future weigh in. However, some days it is not wise to be too rigid. Afterall, this is a long term goal I am working towards and how rigid can I be. I must make sure I go according to life. Well, my life has been unusual of late so sticking to the rigid plan is not conducisve to resting and staying the course. Life always seems to be intervening with my best layed plans. But isn't that what life is all about. Seriously, is there anyone out there that has things so perfect that every day is just so? Nah... I seriously didn't think so. I am no different. I am tired. I am worried about my husband and I am trying to stick to the plan to increase exercise and cut back on bad eating. I am not a model today. I did finally get back to the treadmill after more time away than I wanted. I increased my speed and my incline and did 1.5 miles. That was darn good. I then got side tracked in my head and ended up falling UP the stairs. I did this because I AM so Tired! Well, I complicated the matter and went out then and bought a chicken shawarma and dessert for supper. I did not have fruit cut up. I did not plan a meal. I failed in that regard. But I understand why I did it. So tomorrow I will ensure I have fresh fruit cut up and on the ready and ensure I cook a healthy dinner for my hubby and myself. I can't do anything but learn from today. It was not a bad failure but I did fail myself in that I failed to provide for me. I failed to get a good sleep the night before. A good nights sleep and also quite importantly having good food on the ready is very helpful in keeping this chickie to the plan of losing weight and increasing my fitness level. So all in all, not a stellar couple of days, but then not a total failure either. Be prepared and keep rested. Those are the two lessons I learned today.
