Day 225/ Crash!
Thursday, August 13, 2015
Today I weighed in at 250.0 Yay, it seems that 1 pound is going to stay off (I hope, especially after yesterday!)
Yesterday I got up at 0530 and drank my coffee and started on blog #224. You'll notice, there is no blog 224. My body gave me a big NO. Not only no, but go back to bed. I fought for a while, and then went back to bed. I've been overdoing it and it finally caught up with me. My body just refused, put up a huge stop sign and said go no further. To compound things I forgot to eat breakfast or take my Juice Plus
, so I was starving by the time I got to my therapy appointment. So I gave in again and got Burger King on the way home. I figured I'd be able to workout in the afternoon and I was dead wrong. Once my body had food in it, it demanded sleep. Demanded. So I slept for three hours.
I didn't think I was overdoing it. I thought I had just amped up my work out. Part of my problem is that in my head I'm still thin and in shape. So it seems to me I should be able to do these things. So I push. And apparently I push too much. I don't know where my happy medium is because I still feel like I wasn't asking too much. But I know I was or I would not have crashed like that.
So I obviously went way off my food plan, eating at Burger King yesterday. I took in a total of 2,118 calories yesterday!! Yikes! My plan is to just get back on my eating plan. No 'catch up day' like I used to do. I'm just going to pick up like yesterday didn't happen.
I still feel overly tired. I could totally go back to sleep right now. But instead I'm going to get on my swimsuit and take the kids to the pool
And while I'm at it I'm going to rethink my work out and what all I was doing and try to find what will be my happy medium. I don't want to over- or under-do it. I want to get in a good work out. I just don't want to crash again!
