Not my best week as can be denoted by my last blog. Motivation and energy was severely lacking. That being said, I got in one workout this week. And I paid for it in major pain. My clot leg yesterday was throbbing nonstop from the lack of activity and poor circulation. If I exercise for no other reason, it should be to keep the pain away. I don't know why it doesn't get through my thick head, but one day it will. I hope. Bad food choices. Which may be part of my motivation and energy problems. A spark friend pointed out in a comment on my last blog that may answer all of my problems...gluten. I've been a very bad girl again. I don't know why, but I'm having a REALLY hard time saying goodbye to bread because the small town I live in only has WalMart and they don't stock much for us that are gluten intolerant, I can't wait to move, so I have to make my own bread if I want it and I don't have a breadmaker. Or money for it. But that's beside the point. The fact that I keep glutening myself could be why I'm so out of it all the time. I must continue to work on it. Part of it may also be that I'm so stressed about the whole bankruptcy thing. It's a lot harder than I thought it'd be and I already thought it'd be difficult. But I'm getting close to the finish line with the paperwork, so all that should be left is the court date in a couple months. I hope. Cuz this thing is killing me and what little time I have. All of it is a lot right now and I'm trying my best to keep my head above the water, so if I fail from time to time on showing you guys the support you keep showing me, which I haven't done this week, please forgive me. I am trying. It will all ease soon I hope.
But anyway, with all of this in mind, I still seemed to have lost 1.2 pounds. I don't know how it happened, but I'll take it and I'll work harder this week to reach my fitness goals and nutritional goals. I'll work on the meditation goals when I can, but I'm going to focus on those most because they are my biggest struggles right now. And I actually have a plan. I came up with a meal plan on my own this week, so proud of that one, and I plan on following through on my fitness goals, which is to get 30 min of cardio in each day and to strength train 6 days a week, working on different areas of the body each day to allow for recovery, followed by my favorite: stretching. That's my plan. It's simple, so hopefully I will follow it for a change. Here's to a much better week and progress!
