Day 274: Sickness and Making Goals

Saturday, March 29, 2014

This week was my last week before spring break, and I'm happy to say I made it through and am looking forward to having the entire week off next week to focus! However, the first hurdle I have to overcome is this sickness I currently have that has kept me from the gym since Thursday. Kind of hard to go for a run when your nose is plugged up... I've been mainly battling the binge monster and trying to be honest when tracking calories and amounts of food I've eaten. I think I want to invest in a food scale so I can be more accountable to portioning.

I feel crappy that I have to keep resetting my "Lose __ by __" goal because I have yet to reenter the under 230 mark this year. But here we are and I have to do it again. Hopefully by the end of April, I'll have lost weight and also be more prepared for the Warrior Dash I'm doing this June. Then I'll (hopefully) have "gone from 230 to 225" and actually be able to change the goal.

This sickness is just killing me right now... ugh.

    You're almost there lady! Sometimes we plateau and it can be very discouraging-You'll get there :) Those runs are a lot of fun, and a mess. A good idea for portion control is using the size of your fist/palm. I'm signed up for a color run at the end of May-fun runs are the best :)

    I hope you are finally feeling better! My sickness held on for a month! I hope yours does not! I had to change my lose by goal today as well and at first I was sad about it but then I realized hey! At least we are still here and are still working on our goals. :) Keep up the amazing work!

    Ugh, I'm sorry. That's rough. Sometimes our bodies just betray us...and it always seems to do so at the worst possible time!

    I'm hope you're feeling better!
