Sometimes with the good, there is also not-so-good news. My last post was so positive, so wonderful- and I love re-reading it...However, this week I had a not-so-good week. Some of it was situational, but most of it was being lazy and taking advantage of those situations.
It started on Wednesday - in the overnight, my oldest daughter woke up at 3:30am vomiting - fun, right? So- knowing I'd be the one to stay home with her this time, I cleaned her up and got her settled and then stayed home on Wednesday - this meant two things. Because I had not slept well the night before, I didn't feel very energetic and I knew with my schedule that day I wasn't going to get a workout in. No biggie- I'd make it up on Thursday. Well...sabotage 1. I spent ALL DAY Wednesday eating- anything and everything- healthy and junky....completely insatiable. I mean, I wouldn't call it binging but it was just pick pick pick all day.
Then by Thursday, I felt so awful physically from the food on Wednesday that I didn't go for my run because I couldn't- I was not even able to stand fully straight my stomach was in that much pain. Lots of lessons learned and I probably don't even need to spell them out.
Today- back on track and facing the music. My weigh ins (the ones that count anyway, I'm a serial weigher) are on Friday morning - and I was UP 1.4 lbs. I faced it, I own it, I'm moving on.
After work I ran 2 miles and felt great - got a good sweat and tomorrow I'll have a great workout with my trainer - that will still be workout 4 for the week- not the best, but certainly a far stretch from where I was a year ago.
I've got a plan to get, and stay, on track very strictly for the next few weeks- hopefully this weekend I'll get a chance to share more of that.
