I am coming off of a really bad few weeks. I spent 2 weeks stress eating everything sugary and carby I knew I wasn't supposed to and have spent the last week trying to recover from all that bad food. For 3 weeks my PCOS symptoms have been flared out of control and I find this week I am just plain old exhausted. I haven't been keeping up on my water intake, I haven't been getting quality sleep and my workouts have been half a#$ed. But I also promised not to get negative or beat myself up anymore.

That is what causes the attitude of "well since I am such a screw up with my diet minus well keep just screwing up."

So what, I am having a bad energy week and I feel drained, they happen. But I won't give up on going to the gym, even if the scale isn't budging right now.

So I worked out an exercise plan after work of trying the ball for the first time to do some leg work and then I get to go swim in the pool. Dinner is artichokes with chicken.

I find that if I plan out my food, pack my lunch and plan out my workouts I am more willing to stick to them.

Here is to hoping I can shake these blahs and get some of my energy back!

    Exactly! Sticking to a plan while I am still learning healthy habits has been so far the BEST tool (other than Sparkpeople) I have. Yesterday and today I have been already feeling much better. I am learning little slips are okay, they happen, I am human, what is important is not letting those little slips be an excuse to make BIG slips.

    It is amazing what a little plan can do for you. I am the same way, can not eat by the seat of my pants. If I try to I ended up eating things I know I shouldn't. With that said, overtime you will start making better bad choices if that makes any sense. Keep with it and you will get past your Blahs

    Good luck!! I'm impressed by how even though you've hit a rough patch eating-wise, you're still committing to your exercise habit. It's so tempting to let everything go once you slip in one area, but it sounds like you're really motivated to push through the blahs until you get your energy back. That is awesome. I bet you'll get it back sooner than you know!
