I waited way too long to post..so much has happened!
I will admit I had a bit of a rough week…I felt posting this would be dumb and nobody wants to hear about my woes but then I thought people need to know that this stuff happens! I want to look back on this when I am at goal weight and assure people…
“Yep..this wasn’t easy but I pushed through!”
For a while now I have been working 2 jobs, working out 5 days a week, and taking care of a dog that is pretty sickly. It really started to takes it toll on me and last week I was just defeated. I was over-tired, not working out how I normally do, didn’t meal plan..I was a mess!
However I didn’t let this ruin my week. I was very tired so I worked out when I could and did my best. I didn’t meal plan but I didn’t go through the drive-thru for a quick fix. I still ate ‘on plan’ but I didn’t have anything ready to go. I did get down on myself..I felt fat. I didn’t see my progress and it really got to me! But then I reminded myself..I have lost 23lbs..and 4.5% body fat. Thats amazing!
What else is amazing are my other accomplishments last week!
I started working out in the big boy weight room section
I finished C25K – First 5k time 40:02
Woke up early to go to the gym to find out it wasn’t open..went out for a run instead!
Ate responsibly when visiting family, and on the long car ride!
Made a huge life decision to go to 1 full time job instead of 2 part time
Even though I had a ‘bad week’ it was still full of good things and good choices. Bad moods, unfortunate luck, over-tired does not mean off-plan. I was able to push through it and not do anything I regretted and now..time to get back on track!
