1st Week of 5% Challenge
Sunday, April 14, 2019
This was the 1st week of the 5% Weight Challenge. Unfortunately I was in a funk all week. My sister passed away in Sept of 2017 and I was really missing her this week. It started off with me having a dream about her. Then one day it was all over Facebook that it was National Sibling Day. Plus another situation that I was dealing with, was taking me back to her.
I felt bad for not doing as well as I could in the challenge as far as eating and exercise. I just felt really drained and depressed all week. At first I couldn't understand why I was feeling so drained. Then I finally remembered that grief does that to you. So, in hindsight, I did the best that I could. I'm not going to beat myself up for not doing more. I need to be good to myself, and do what I need to.
Yesterday, it did me a world of good to get outside and do some gardening. Our weather hasn't been the best. But yesterday was gorgeous. It reminded me of what's soon to come. Sunshine and nice warm weather makes me happy.
This week, I plan to make sure that I get my cardio and strength training in. I know that will help me to feel better, and sleep better. I want to get in at least 5 days of cardio and 3 days of ST. And get some stretching in too.
Wishing everyone a GREAT week!
