I have had to re-evaluate again what my plan is and my goals will be. I think I have over-reached a lot, and need to start smaller. As sad as it is, I am back to a much lower level of fitness and need to recognize and work with that. I also need to allow more room for error in my workout schedule. 6 days a week is a great goal, but not a realistic one for me at this time.
I think for now, I am going to work on getting in 3 days a week consistently and build on that. 2 days at the Y, doing some ST and some interval running and 1 long hike with Charlie. After I get that down pat, then I can add to it.
I am doing well with food. I am trying new recipes and that has helped me avoid the junk temptations! I get bored with my own food, although I CAN cook and make up a lot of my own things. I just bore myself sometimes!
My friend is doing a 21 day detox, and I would like to formulate a plan for something similar and maybe shorter. Her first 10 days is fruits, veggies, lentils and brown rice with some healthy fats like olive oil and avocado. Lentils and brown rice are very IFFY for me. Brown rice has been causing me issues on the rare occasions I try some at work, and Lentils are OK sometimes and sometimes I get very bloated and stomach aches from them. So I would need to come up with something else for those things. I doubt I could make 21 days either I am just not that good at deprivation! But I would give a shorter version a try!
Charlie went in yesterday to get neutered and microchipped. He is still not acting quite right so I took a sick day to sit with him. He is very whiny and needy and not quite balancing right. He has me sitting on the enclosed porch, and guilting me back out here every time I try to do something with his whining and crying and sad face! He rests comfortably when I am out here with him so I got the extension cord and moved the laptop and everything out here! DH says its my own fault for teaching him the porch couch=quiet time!
I have no resistance for his crying either! He's usually fine out here by himself, he just must really not feel good to want his Mommy so much! My tummy isn't quite right either today so I could use some downtime myself! Who knows what I did this time!!??
