I need to lay out my game plan. Again.
Thursday, October 11, 2012
Or maybe I just need to revise it a bit. I don't know. Either way, I haven't been sticking to it, although I have been putting effort into most aspects. (Hey, at least I can be honest.)
So here we go....
3 freggie servings/day
At lesat 1 must be a veggie
track & drink at least 4 cups of water, daily
track & exercise 90 minutes/week
This is anything, including walking the dog
track food at least one weekend day/week
Ok, so looking over my guidelines, rules, demands, whatever, I'm not doing too bad. The trouble I'm really having here is with the exercise. I do have an excuse, which is that I am tapering off of steroids, and having to adjust to that zaps all of my energy until my body adjusts. Honestly, most days right now I am lucky to make it to work and not pass out on my desk.
But, this is something I will be dealing with and adjusting to until I am completely off steroids, which may be longer than I would like. My hope is the end of the year, but that may be pushing it. So, I need to find a way to still get exercise when tired. It's not even tired, it's beyond that. It's I can't even keep my eyes opend tired, I can't even eat that cake I had budgeted in my calories for tired, hubby, help me to bed at 8:30 before I fall over tired. If it were normal tired, I'd admit, ok, it's just an excuse. But this is coming down to being a reason, a real, honest-to-goodness reason as to why exercising is difficult to impossible right now.
How do I get around it? How do I dig down deep and find the last bit of resources to get up and DO something? Even the dishes, at this point. I mean, really. Get it together, Laura!
Ok, rant over. Thanks again for listening. I know I've been ranting and venting and blabbing a lot lately. Hey, that's what blogs are for, right?
I still dont' have an adjustment for my plan, but I need to do better about calorie intake and nutrient intake. Hopefully that will help get me into a healthier place in the meantime. Exercise will have to be evaluated on a day to day basis for now.
Sound like a plan?
