This week's challenge has been to track, plan and stay within your ranges. I have failed miserably at this week's challenge; even my exercise #'s are down.
My spur injury has become inflamed once again, so I've been advised to back off and switch it up some.
On top of that, we have been running non-stop dealing with MIL's health issues. Last night, just as I was tucking myself into bed, another call came in that they were transporting her back to the hospital. We were there all night; I have had NO
The bad news - no tracking, no exercise other than pacing. I guess I can at least put in my steps for yesterday
The "good news" - as I was pacing, I was acutely aware of how my body was feeling. Stressed and exhausted; stomach in knots, gut sending me signals that nobody wants to receive. Trust me! My brain was receiving the message loud and clear -- "Maggie, something has to give; you cannot continue at this pace; you have to take care of you! Please listen to me!!"
So I called my boss and he said "take a sick day, and get some rest". Nice boss for today!
I made myself a dish of greek yogurt, fresh strawberries and some raw almonds, and I tracked it! I am enjoying a cup of coffee, but then I am going to switch to my herbal tea and water, lots of water. I am going to try and catch some zzz's and then....I don't know. I think I am too tired to plan, but plan I must today. So I'll let you know about that later.
Happy Hump Day - love you all!!
