Chapter 29, Day 12

Monday, August 06, 2018

After a 7 day streak, I gave myself a rest day. My body needed rest more than it needed me to push it to exercise on minimal sleep from an overly long work day. Because of the long hours, I ate 4 meals instead of 3, so calories are at the high end end of my spark calorie range. Is this a sign I am slipping back into old habits?

I'm committed to another successful health and fitness week, despite today. That is all I can do. The rest of my week has to be GOLD standard, interferences and challenges, all combined. It's called life. Effective management of life's circumstances: It's the difference between success and yo-yo dieting, the latter of which I outwardly declared, "NO MORE!"

So that's that. It's been decided.

DAY'S POSITVES
Had a very good client meeting....day shaped up fine despite its unexpected twists and turns
Enjoyed a very, very nice day out with my eldest grant yesterday. Yes, I needed the day for client work, but I chose wisely emoticon
Enjoyed my GOLD streak. I will get another one going.

CAN DOs
Rest more.....keep falling back to sleep inbetween writing this blog

UPDATE:
Total Daily Calories: 1532....sigh....more today than at the BD soiree! emoticon emoticon

    I stopped killing myself trying to get those 10,000 steps a day, I still walk and participate in Fitbit challenges, but if I don't get 10,000 I am okay with it. For me, as long as I get at least 30 minutes a day, I'm happy!
    You are doing great, buddy! I agree with Jackie, make sure you get enough sleep. emoticon

    Yes. If you are falling asleep you really needed more sleep. Still love the miles and steps on your fitbit. Can't be working hard every day. Sometimes slow down and just get in a groove. emoticon Glad you had a nice day out with the granddaughter. Does fitbit count joy. emoticon
