Day 1 – Friday
Planned night at the Opera so no working out for me! However, I didn’t make it to the Opera and probably consumed way too much alcohol.
Day 2/3 – Saturday / Sunday
Saturday and Sunday would have been ideal except my eating wasn’t so great. I did get in over 7 miles walking and the burn in my thighs for the rest of the evening was spectacular.
Sunday my son had a soccer game and this time I was clever enough to wear my gear and walk the track while the game went on. He doesn’t play much and I got in 5 miles (I also got a little dizzy walking 5 miles around a track!). I also got in two sets of bleachers without much laboring in the breathing part. Good improvement I think.
Eating was slightly better today but I sort of realize I am sabotaging myself with poor eating/drinking habits on the weekend. I have to find a better middle ground (though I already know next weekend I will be out of control!)
I really don’t want to do the 5k program. I don’t like running. But I want to run the June 5k, just that one goal, one time. I am going to give the treadmill another shot this week.
Day 4 – Monday
Today I fasted during the day and had an avocado salad for dinner. I was planning a walk but Dad ended up in hospital and I went to see him instead.
Stress levels are high and I can barely move my head/neck normally. I need to take a sleeping pill.
Not a bad day, but I could have used the release of exercise. Let’s see what tomorrow brings.
Day 5 -6 and 7
The rest of this week was shot. I ate poorly, probably sincerely some of the worst eating of my life. I have never actually eaten a full pint of Ben and Jerrys but I sure did this week.
No exercise the rest of this week at all.
Heavy drinking and eating in the weekend as well.
I’m also not participating in the 5k challenge so that idea is kicked to the curb.
I have to reboot this plan and rethink about how / what I’m doing going forward.
More to come on specifics.
Unfortunately my weight asp popped back up 2 pounds but I know full well it’s due to stress eating.
It seems like each time I find my mojo, major life events take over and get in my way. I truly believe I live the least normal life on the planet sometimes!
