This week has been... well, quite a week.
Lots of family events between my brother's graduation and Mother's day, not enough sleep, celebrating Sean's birthday... it's been one thing after another without enough time to really focus on me, especially after last weekend's rockiness. On top of it all, the usual bloating and discomfort of TOM has been unpleasant at best, and left me kind of dragging.
On the up side, I've stuck to eating what I'm supposed to. I'm not a fan of eating out, because I never know what people add to or season things with in restaurants, but I tried to do my best to stick to a low-carb plan - bunless burgers, lobster with drawn butter, salads or steamed veggies... I did what I could. I did try to add in berries today, but I'm not sure that agreed with me too well, so I might need to pull that back.
I've not made it to the gym this week, but I've gotten in walking, yoga, and some of those boot camp workouts! Being unable to make it to the gym this week, it was definitely good week for that challenge.
All in all, I hope this coming week can kind of go back to normal. I'm a creature of habit, to be sure, and too much change in my routine all at once always just throws me for a loop. In terms of the measureables - minutes of exercise, food intake, pounds lost, even - I've done well, but mentally, I just feel unmoored.
Here's to getting back on solid ground this week!
