Week 5 Summary!

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

This week was crazy! I felt like the busiest bee, and of course ended up contracting a nasty head cold Friday night-Saturday morning. I always plan out 5 fitness days that way I have a little wiggle room in case something pops up, but this week I definitely skipped the 5th workout. I was short of breath, dizzy, feverish and just plain old miserable for about 3-4 days. I still managed to meet all of my goals and lose a pound! I need to remind myself of this week whenever I’m struggling for motivation! In regards to social events, I had a happy hour with work colleagues, an ugly sweater party and a football party for my big Ravens game! It reminded me why I don’t often attend so many social engagements; my weekends end up being less restful and my calories were on overload.
