Working to Get my Groove Back

Friday, October 19, 2012

It has been a tough two weeks -- emotionally and physically.

On the minus side, between travel, family, and returning to work extra hours to catch up for being gone, and not sleeping decently, I have pretty much only exercised three days out of the last two weeks. And not once doing any ST at the gym Sigh. And I stopped tracking food -- mainly because I just didn't have the energy to focus on my program in any way, shape or form. Yeah, and there was comfort food involved too . . .

So my lofty goals for October --- Like a flash in the pan! Poof!

On the plus side, I didn't go back the the 200's (damn close though). I did drag myself out to walk/jog yesterday (wow my cardio capability plummeted in a mere two weeks). And this morning, I wanted to ride my bike -- so that is a good sign. Maybe I can get back in the groove.

I think I need to get myself back to the basics I started with -- and keep it simple for the next couple of weeks. Water --exercise five-six days a week--start tracking my food again. I'm not going to beat up on myself for what I eat for awhile -- I'm just going to try to have a few successes and get my groove back.

And get back to Sparking and connecting and regular life again...

Thanks to everyone that left kind comments or goodies for me. It helped!

    Don't be too hard on has been a very rough two weeks for you! I think you are doing an awesome job by just being able to focus and to begin anew. Your exercising will help you with the stress, as CHERIONE suggested. I am so glad to read that were able to exercise today.

    Prayers and hugs for you in the loss of your mother!

    Sometimes you just need to step back and take a deep breath before you move on. You have had a tough two weeks. Use exercise to help relieve some of that stress and help you refocus. You can do it. (((Hugs)))
