So, I sat down this week and mapped out a pretty simple strategy for getting my workouts in this week...Start a Rip:60 rotation and put in some time on the bike. Run on Sunday (because I have a course on Saturday).
Then why haven't I been able to do it? at all? even once?
Monday - I was so busy all day and exhausted from having been without Hubby all weekend...and he got home that afternoon so I wanted to spend the time with him...workout missed.
Tuesday - Operated on 2 hours of sleep. Too exhausted to lift own arms. Went to bed early to try to get caught up on rest. Workout missed.
Wednesday - well, that's today. So, I have an opportunity to turn things around. I got a full night sleep last night (thank you, Doodle) so I'm ahead there. I am going to try my darndest to get a workout in...any workout...even if it means doing it before I eat dinner so the lure of the sofa won't grab me...
Wish me luck. I really do want to succeed at my "til the end of the year" goal. Nobody is going to lose the weight for me...I know it is all on me. But what normally works for me...isn't working for me at the moment. My brain is too full of other stuff to even know where to start anymore.
But start, I must. The kick start was last week and it resulted in my losing 2lbs last week. I need to keep that rate up til the end of the year to succeed.
Perhaps my diet is where I need to focus the work. Make sure I am sticking to the calorie allowance each day and tough love it a bit. This work-life balance thing is screwing with my workouts, but I can control what goes into my mouth.
I think I may need to start posting my meals here to keep me accountable. You guys won't be too mad if I temporarily turn into a vegetarian food blog, will ya? I'll try to keep it to one meals post a day - I promise...
I might also be posting my scale readings...still talking myself into that one...
