Where'd the will power go?

Friday, May 10, 2013

So I ended cycle 3 on Tuesday. I planned I starting cycle one again on Wednesday and .....hmm. I haven't. I had forgotten why I was struggling so before. No sleep. Or little sleep. I feel like a dumby! I know I eat poorly when I am tired, stressed, emotional, etc. and never once when I thought of getting the pup dido think about it affecting my eating! I knew I would lose sleep and that she would whine. I knew house training would be a long chore and was prepared for everything, but the lack of sleep affecting my will power. How I forgot to consider that, I don't know. What I do know is that I got her as a reward to myself for losing weight, so I can't gain it back from getting her! I must revive my will power and motivation. I have been on a slippery slope this week. Not eating right at all and definitely not following cycle one. The only thing I have done is drank my lemon water in the morning!

That is ok though. I plan on getting through the weekend. Napping too. Sunday I will make my shredded crockpot chicken. I will start cycle one Monday and I will stick to it. I hope to jog this weekend at least once and then do 17 minutes on my stationary bike and a walk the other day. I can do it. I know I can. I just have to commit. Tired or not.

I do love the pup although we still haven't named her. We picked her up Tuesday. That was a long day for the kids and I. We went straight from school to an hour long drive to the shelter and then all the way home. Our entire schedule was a mess and we were all tired and cranky by the time we made it home. Wednesday my husband got sick so I was a one man show with the kids. Thursday he was still sick. Tonight, Friday, he went fishing so it was mostly just me again. Combine that with puppy duty and I am tired! I am very happy with my decision to get her, but could have done without sick daddy for two days. It's always nice to have the kids divide their energy among the both of us as opposed to them pelting me with it all!

Here is a pic of the pup:

I hope to have landed on a name by the end of the weekend. Perhaps Mia. Maybe June. Rosie. Lolly. I don't know. I have gone through a million and none of them suit her. It will come I am sure. The shelter named her and the puppies she was found with (there were 9 of them) after board games. She ended up being checkers. Maybe I'll just keep that.

    Hang in there!! Think of all the extra calories you are burning up with the training.. boy I remember those days! And if you stick to C1 or even C2 (if you need some extra energy)... you'll be back on board in no time flat!!
