6) Do you need some motivation or advice? Ask for it!

Thursday, March 07, 2013

I can always use more motivation! Especially since I really do not feel good. Got a cold. Pretty sure it was that lady sitting next to me on the plane who keep sneezing and sniffling the entire flight and kept invading my foot space to the point I actually kicked her a few times because she left me with no where to put my feet, so rude! Brother is still in town, and while I've done good at tracking, my appetite is still on vacation mode and I am definitely eating more than I should. I also need to get in much more exercise, but I just want to sleep all day. Doh! I'm also kind of stressed out because the neighbors are getting a new roof put on and it's very noisy and freaking my dogs out.

    Take care of yourself. Keep tracking your food. Once you start feeling better, you will be ready to return to exercising.

    I always carry a mask. I am such a nerd. I do home health care so never know what I am going to run into.

You can not push your body to hard or you sure won't get better.

    Oh dear. That all sounds like a rough patch! You may need to rest if you're not feeling well. You know yourself best. But if you think you're having a stress or aversion reaction, then the best thing you can do is a workout that will get you sweating... a lot... and those endorphins will elevate your mood! Here's one of my favorite short cardio workouts on SP, just 12 minutes but if you give it your all it might just perk you up!

    If you are keeping up with your tracking with everything you are going through this week, then you are doing great!! Keep up the good work and be gentle with yourself. You will heal faster if you are not pushing yourself too hard.

    Hopefully they get the roof done quickly. My dog would be the same. Try to get some extra vitamin c and keep drinking water. Praying you feel better soon. You will get back on track w/the food. emoticon

    Wow - multiple issues to combat and stay motivated. But it sounds like you know where you want to be headed so it is just a matter of feeling better and then getting back in the groove. You can do it. Step out there and go for it!

  too bad we don't get to choose who to sit next to right? hopefully you won't get sick and can continue on your journey. a vacation means r & r but the relax part doesn't include your eating or exercising habits. left alone for too long and takes more to restart yourself and thought process. even if you temper the eating and exercising down a notch or 2 it will help.. good luck and above all.. have fun!
