I don’t know what happened… ok, I do… but I don’t know why. The beginning of the week was HORRID – lacking motivation, not wanting to do what I know I need to – I wasn’t eating the right things, and it was like I just didn’t care – all the while my brain was screaming at me to stop the sabotage! I could list plenty of excuses – school winding down and finals this week (I’m done tomorrow), stress, “that time of the month”, fatigue, etc. the list could go on and on but the bottom line is I didn’t eat right, I didn’t exercise like I should, I LOST my motivation…
and the scale shows it
That’s right – I GAINED 2 LBS 😦
I’m embarressed by the slide… but I also know that is not productive. Luckily, by Friday I had finally pulled myself out of the funk – and FOUND my motivation again. Friday I did day 1 of c25k and although it was harder than I thought it would be, it was easier than the last time I tried in Feb of 2009. I know I’m back on track NOW and the scale WILL reflect it next week. Saturday, took a 4 mile walk with our very own SOTW Jessica, but somewhere along the way I tweaked my ankle. I couldn’t do ANYTHING yesterday and today isn’t much better, but at least I’m eating clean whole foods again and watching my portions. I’m back to sticking with the nutrition plan Alysa gave me as a Mamavation Mom and while I need to stay off my foot, that doesn’t mean I can’t find other exercise to fit into my day – the plan for today (and as long as it takes for my ankle to get better) is to stick with upper body – weights while I’m sitting on my balance ball is the most challenging I can come up with so I’m definately open to ideas. I’m also going to be working in some gentle Yoga that the Dr. approved, and floor exercises are on the ‘menu’ as well.
C25K is obviously on a hiatus for now, but I’m actually looking forward to being able to start it again.
All in all, I fell off plan for a week and it’s time to get back on the wagon. I know it is a process but I’m still frustrated that I fell so quickly after the end of the campaign.
Speaking of the campaign – i can NOT WAIT to see who all applies! I’m looking forward to seeing all of your videos and cheering you on!
