I had a major pity party yesterday - major breakdown.
I didn't sleep well - total of 6 hours which only 4 hours were restful. That started the day - so I didn't run I was so exhausted. Thinking that some of the issue was stress from the job from the day before. I haven't seen any weight loss - but the clothes are actually fitting tighter rather than looser.
I talked about throwing in the towel on worrying about losing weight and even quitting strength training with Supreme 90. I have been eating within the modified calorie range after my exercise is added in. When I left work I had an epiphany - work DON'T stress it - I am still "in training" but expected to do my required job now - if they don't like where/what I can do they can just let me go - I will just return to doing my job with my husband and that is it. I will not stress about that anymore.
I remembered what Tom Holland says on one of the Supreme 90 workouts - The definition of Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting the different results. I am making a stand NOT to be insane anymore. I will try eating close to 1200 calories not the modified calorie range for the next several days and also drinking more than 8 glasses of water each day. I will see if that makes a kick start to some weight loss.
So - with all that information. I came home from work yesterday - turned on the DVD and did Core Dynamics - 18+ minutes of core workout. Ate dinner then 30 minutes after I finished - I got dressed for a run - the skies were dark, radar showed rain was coming, but I went out anyway. Managed to get 1 mile before the rain started coming down full force. I turned around and headed back home. So I did get a short 2 + mile run after all.
Walked this morning and I have eaten about 1300 calories and now I will wait a few more minutes get dressed and then plug into Cardio Challenge. I will do modifications - push ups still on my knees and any plyo moves I will run in place as my ankles have been whispering at me. Tomorrow I am scheduled for the longest run since Big Sur Marathon of 5 miles.
