200 or bust...

Saturday, April 20, 2013

That's my goal for the coming week(s). While the scale is still slowly creeping down it's not the rate I want and my overall fitness has taken a nose dive lately. While I am being more active I am not getting in any actual cardio. My energy levels are bottomed out and I'm craving junk like crazy. I did get in 30 minutes on the bike this morning but I was far from my usual 19mphs and held at a whopping 13.

I'm still managing to stay mostly in range but, I've had a few days of being sore, miserable, tired, and I decided I deserve that 220 calorie candy bar, cookies, or a fried chicken. No, I will never really deserve it because I feel like butt when I eat too much crap food. I've been avoiding vegetables like the plague the last couple days, no grains, and primarily consuming fruit and meat. I'm so fatigued my face is achy and sore...wth.

My stress level is through the roof. There is so much to be done around the property and for every project I want or need to do my husband has 10 more that take precedence over mine because they are must do things like fix a leaky spot in the roof, replace some trashed carpet that smells kinda funny (which requires moving furniture and a heavy roll top desk), and just a lot of small projects that seem to take a lot of hard work. Stuff that to be completely honest I have little to no interest in doing but I have no choice but to help or do them myself because he can't do these things himself and I have no one else in the world that will help. My Dad tries but people tend to get injured because he rushes things and he and DH really don't get along.

Well, off to do some roofing and try not to fall flat on my face out of exhaustion.

    I think it would be nice to help my husband with chores. He usually doesn't do much. He watches a lot of TV and works a lot on his computer. There was a time that I wasn't too keen on vegetables, either, but I've learned to like them. A lot of restaurants don't serve enough of them...more meat or potatoes than veggies. Change is tough, and you no doubt crave the old foods. Try to resist those urges.

    I don't know how you manage to do all that work. I feel like I deserve a gold medal if I clean the kitchen counters!

    Good luck reaching 200, you've so got this!
