Over the past three weeks, it feels like the weight loss gods are against me. It's one thing after another! I've been struggling to keep up my healthy habits (although I am still having at least one Green Monster a day, for 4-8 fruits/veggies per day!). I'm struggling most with making good choices outside of my Green Monsters, and getting in exercise.
I know life is never easy, and there will ALWAYS be distractions and things getting in the way - I need to keep pushing. It's just pretty rare that everything has been working against me at once! Three weeks ago, I was out of town - stuck to my eating plan in the beginning, then gave in to temptation pretty hard. Two weeks ago, I had three nights of unexpected late night work meetings, getting in only 2 workouts and struggling with healthy choices at my meetings.
I was ready to get back on my exercise plan early last Monday, and wondered why it was incredibly hard to finish my workout; I was extraordinarily exhausted, yawning through the whole thing. So weird. The next day, I went home sick from work....that's why I was so tired! The next day, I pushed through to go to work, then I got bit in the face by a dog I was examining (first time EVER). My illness has become progressively worse each day. I haven't been sleeping at all. Last night, I finally forced myself to sleep (hello again sleeping pills, it's been years since I needed you!), and today forced myself to stay down on the couch and rest.
It's time to kick this crud so I can get back on track. What am I going to do? Plan my meals for the coming week, enter into my food tracker, and plan workouts. If I end up not being strong enough to workout, at least I'll be eating smartly.
ONE DAY AT A TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!
