Where to begin?

Sunday, December 01, 2013

How do I even begin to describe the past few days? Whirlwind comes to mind. Tornado might be more accurate.

Thursday: Got in my workout, ate well enough. Spent a bit of time at church just being thankful, went to go see my uncle for my dress. He picked out a pretty color and cut (won't go into much detail just in case my snoopy fiance is reading). Let's just say I'm really excited to go in for my fitting. He said it should be done by the 12th or so. So fitting somewhere between now and then.

Friday: Got in my workout, ate okay-ish. Had a class with my student and had an all around okay day. Oh. Take it back. Did not eat okay-ish. Had a red velvet cookie with cream cheese because I was in the test kitchen. Blah. Scraped just under my maximum calories.

Saturday: Ugh. Met my friends for breakfast. Haven't seen them since I graduated high school (15 years?) chose the healthier fish option at least. Lunch with my sisters at the mall? Japanese curry. Breaded pork chop in it so calories were not great. Skipped dessert except for a spoonful of froyo from my sister. On the good side, did a LOT of walking. Walked from one end of the mall to the other (which is FAR) to meet my sisters then spent time shopping for shoes for my wedding, a matching tie for my fiance, winter clothes and hair accessories.

Unfortunately? By the time I got home I was so tired I decided to skip my Shred video. I feel pretty bad about it. I've decided I'll have yesterday as my rest day then just workout on Monday which was supposed to be my scheduled day off. Also didn't do yoga :(

Sunday: It gets worse. On the good side, I did squeeze in the Shred today. Would you believe I only have 3 more after today? Also on the good side? I was on my feet ALL day. Over 6 hours in the kitchen to be exact. The bad side? I was grazing on everything I was baking. First test batch in the morning needed tweaking as well so had to go through another batch in the afternoon. Squeaked under calories again. My feet are pretty achey plus arms have worked out from all the stirring and beating so I'll be skipping cardio since I was moving for a really long time anyhow. I'm still convincing myself to do yoga even now.

I'm all of exhausted right now. But the proposal set of goodies is packed away and ready to be sent to my potential client tomorrow so hopefully I get approved and I can get to work on that. No more tasting at least since I have the recipes down pat.

The awful part? I feel like I haven't put health first at all. I need to hop back on the wagon tomorrow. I've only got a bit of time left until my wedding and I'd rather not gain anything back between now and then. I know I can accomplish plenty in these last three and a half weeks though so I'm not letting it get me down. It does feel pretty icky though.

Going to pick myself up, dust myself off and get back into my routine starting with another big glass of water right now. Ready? Go.

    Actually, you didn't do too bad, really. You were running around like crazy and you made all these"small" choices that DO add up! Keep it going, my friend. One day at the time plus you were accountable by writing this blog. emoticon emoticon

    you didn't go way out there. After all special lunches and events happen here and there. And you have second and third thoughts, you won't remain off track. Your climbing back on. Don't be overly frustated. Your becoming more and more regular. emoticon

    Do not worry, girl! Don't think negatively! I know that while I didn't eat "very good", I've done WAY BETTER than I normally would have! So happy about that! Gotta think about that.... Just get back on the train and work your way back!

    It doesn't sound like you made any major slips, you were still conscious of what you were doing and eating and tracking everything. Don't beat yourself up too much, you are getting ready for a major event in your life and are allowed to enjoy to enjoy that a bit!

    Don't start tomorrow . . . make yourself a priority today! You can do it in bits-and-pieces! Progress, not perfection.
