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