"You don't drown by falling in the water. You drown by staying there." ~Unknown Author
Another less than impressive week here. Heck, I'll be honest, it wasn't only less than impressive...it was TERRIBLE! I'm floundering with my dedication to this right now. My aunt and uncle got into town a couple weeks ago and we're falling back into the routine of spending the weekends eating out and enjoying a few cocktails. This past weekend we ate out Friday (Italian), Saturday (Mexican), AND Sunday (bar food). Ugh!! This has got to stop! Even the stomach bug I was dealing with this weekend didn't stop the eating. In fact, I found myself comfort eating. Go figure! On top of that, I was still dealing with some back pain and didn't want to push it so I didn't do any exercise. Today I'm back on track with my shakes and will be visiting Planet Beach for a much needed massage. I find that I avoid going there too when I'm off the wagon. Or maybe it's that I fall off the wagon because I stop going there? I really do feel much more motivated to reach my goals when I'm making regular visits and feel like I'm taking care of myself. Interesting correlation? Anyway, no goals to report because I just stopped tracking them by about Thursday last week.
Here are my goals for week 7:
Water: 8 cups per day
Exercise: 20 minutes per day, minimum
Sleep: 7 hours per night, minimum
The one up-side to this week? I sill managed to lose 0.6 pounds. I know that's almost nothing, but at least it's still going in the right direction. Although maybe I need to see a gain to snap me back to reality?!
