Well so much for workouts this weekend, that is unless you count the little bit of snow shoveling I did. Saturday after I got home from my event, which I left early because of the snow, all I did was rest. It was like my body was totally wore out and I could not get enough sleep. I am not sure if it was my bodies way of fighting off what ever bug is going around my office. So then my plan was to workout on Sunday after I got done at the grocery store that morning. Only to then stand in line at the grocery store and get a text from my Mom that my Grandpa was in the hospital after having a stroke. There I was in the middle of the line and I instantly started to cry. Thank god my husband was there because he was able to calm me down and get me through the check out and drive my car back home. Needless to say....depression set in and no workout done. I did however get all my meal prep for the week done so that I can stay on track!
This morning I started to get down on myself for not working out. Then I had to take a step back and mentally shake myself. For the last two weeks I have been doing fantastic! I have gotten in workouts when I didn't think I would, or could. I have been good with my nutrition. So I caved and jumped on the scale, and I'm down 2.4 pounds!
I AM DOING GOOD!! I am doing all that I can, do I still have things that I need to workout....of course I do. I would not be human if I did not. BUT.....what I can tell you that is SO different with me this time around, with this year.....I am NOT giving up. I am NOT letting this small hiccup take me into the depths of a gallon of ice cream! I am picking myself up, letting me have two darn days off without guilt....and getting to the gym today! After all.....YOU NEVER MISS A MONDAY!! Also I don't want to miss 3 days of workouts. You do that and the excuses become easier and not going becomes easier too! NOT going down that road!!!
I am very proud of my meal prep for the week. I made a BIG pot of veggie soup. I have enough for this week, and next week. Ended up putting 4 days worth in the freezer for next week. I also made mini chicken meatballs that I will be adding to my soup this week, YUM! I have my Shakeology every day, boiled eggs, yogurt, fruit and pumpkin seeds for the week. I am all set! Dinners will very depending on what the family has. For the most part I will eat what they do, just smaller portions will be my key! Now to just get in all my water intake!!
