I have been exceeding my calorie range this past week. It's the dark night of the soul, this time of year, and I have been eating a lot of sugar. Way too much sugar. I've also gone out for drinks a couple of times this week which blows my calories, too. On the bright side, I set a goal for 270 minutes of cardio per week and I got 408 minutes for the first week of December. So I'll get on the scale tomorrow and see what it says but I'll admit I'm a bit nervous about it. And I'll do better with the eating, too.
I've also neglected a full stretching routine and I'm paying for it this morning. I think I did the full hour of stretching twice this week and I certainly have added in stretches throughout each day but it's not enough. I am suffering from muscle tension and knotted muscles and muscle spasms all through my neck and shoulders and back, due to TMJ. I think if I take a walk then do my hour of stretching I'll feel a lot better. I went out dancing last night and had maybe too many drinks, too, so I earned this soreness, really. But it definitely reminds me that I need to take really good care of myself and my body. And I know exactly what to do in order to feel better so really everything is wonderful.
I am kind of annoyed because I'm not getting any emails from Spark. None of their emails and no thread updates. I checked all of my subscriptions and everything seems right there but I haven't gotten any Spark-generated emails since Friday morning. Weird.
