Switched days and getting sick?

Thursday, May 02, 2013

Alright, we all know how life works. Sometimes it is perfect. On track.. on time.. and sometimes, it is fun and hectic! haha I was suppose to do ZCUT #7 on Weds. but I got home at 7-7:30 pm. Granted, I put my kid right to bed and could've gotten in my workout but I was EXHAUSTED. So, here's what I did instead: I skipped it. Yep. I did. Today was suppose to be my rest day and, instead, I made my rest day yesterday.

Cue today. I feel like I've got a cold or something coming on. I didn't sleep well. I laid around all day and just generally felt terrible. However, because I skipped my workout yesterday, I told myself I absolutely had to workout today. Annnnnd ....

I did! emoticon

Granted, I showered and took an hour long nap right after... emoticon

But I'm pretty sure I needed it. So, I've taken all the vitamins I can think of, drank all my water, and rested. I hope that this just blows over without taking me down. I'd hate to have to change up my last week of the first month of ZCUT anymore than I already have.

Speaking of ZCUT, #7 was still tough. I mentioned how I didn't feel like I did enough when I first encountered this workout. Today, though I burned less calories than the first time, I really do feel like I did better. I didn't whine or give up, I just kept pushing through. I gave all I could give, especially considering I'm feeling sickly. I burned 199 calories in 25 minutes. Not bad for a lethargic person... haa.

Well, that's about it for me today. I'm staying within my calories and have been all week. I also lowered my calories a little. I eat below 1500 everyday now as is consistent for what I weigh. I've been stepping myself down slowly, and weekly, so that I don't notice the changes. Hopefully, I won't have to go much lower than I am now. I figure, at some point, it should level off and I should still be able to lose the remaining weight. I'm not as confident in this week's weigh/tape in. Probably because I don't feel well but I just keep telling myself that it is a journey. I'm still loving all the changes in my body and that's all that matters :)

Until tomorrow! (when I hopefully won't be full-blown sick)
