Woe is me….

Hey all!

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!
