My Journey and My Matzo
Wednesday, March 27, 2013
As much as I love the weekends, I also dislike them greatly. There are weekends when I’m right on schedule with everything and then there are weekends (like this past one, however awesome it was), where my eating/water schedule goes right out the window.
Nobody’s perfect right?
I haven’t been eating as well as I’d like, but have been tracking either way. I’ve also been exercising pretty consistently and do my best to get at least 30 minutes a day. I didn’t go to work yesterday, so I was able to get 45 minutes in at 4mph, but today I definitely won’t be able to get any exercise in because of my musical theatre class tonight. Our call time is 6pm and since I get off work around 4pm (and don’t get home to almost 5pm) exercise just won’t be possible until after class. Tonight is kind of our final where we get to perform for our friends/family/industry professionals which is always fun. We’ve got a decent show and some very good singers. We did a run through of the show and found out that it was only an hour which is fabulous! If we do indeed go under an hour, I’ll definitely have time to exercise. All in all, it should be a good night.
Since Monday afternoon I’ve been pretty down in the dumps, same old Depression symptoms kicking in. I’m doing my best to combat it, and honestly I think I just need a bit of time to myself. A friend of mine is in a production of Dreamgirls, so I think I may do that Friday since some other friends are going as well. I also may be going to Disneyland this Saturday to cheer me up, we’ll see.
Overall, I’m trying to stay positive, keep up my nutrition and keep up my water intake. Sometimes I think I may be drinking too much water, so I’m going to begin drinking 3 liters every other day and drink 1.5 on the days in between. Unofficially weighed in today and as I expected, I’m not in my maintenance range yet. I won’t give up.
Thank you all for reading my story and being so supportive, it is definitely appreciated.
p.s. I love Matzo, my co-worker gave me a huge square and I’m definitely enjoying it! HA!
