Meeting some of those life challenges head on this past week!

Saturday, April 10, 2010

A very busy week with work made a challenging week for food choices, getting in exercise sessions and finding time to log into SP to keep track of it all. Add to that a hamstring strain mid-week after completing W4D2 of C25K and it's been a definite challenge. But again, all examples of what life can throw at you. Part of this journey is learning to adjust and make good choices, with whatever life brings..
I had several dinners out this week, so tried to manage my calories and types of food so that I had some "room" for the dinners. I chose fish, grilled veggies, sauces on the side , or salads with grilled chicken, dressing on the side, wherever I could.
With the hamstring pull I was concerned. C25K or power walking is such a big part of my day, I am afraid of too many days of inactivity..That starts the slippery slope I've been down too many times before!
Then, I remembered my bike!..Its a sunny cool day and I rode 14K. Didn't seem to impact the hamstring , but managed to get my heart rate up.
My time on SP was much lower this week, but I did manage to get in each day, log my eats, touch base very quickly with my support groups.
All in all I think I have coped with those challenges life sent my way this week!

    Awesome job maintaining despite your injury! Hopefully you'll be back to C25K soon, but not before you are ready!

    I'm rooting for ya!
