Last week was not a failure week for me.
At least I'm not looking at it as a failure.
I worked out 4 out of 5 days.
I didn't reach my daily water goals
I didn't reach my food journaling goals
I didn't... i didn't... I didn't.
BUT I worked out 4 out of 5 days. I'm trying really hard. Just realizing that I need to keep trying, keep pushing through and at the same time realize that until my handsome guy is sleeping through the night (and therefore me too)... it's going to be a really tough journey. I have to admit.. i make the WORST choices when I'm tired, lets see... who else can see that being a HUGE problem in the motivation arena. especially when it comes to meal choices. I'm living on coffee and water, heck I need coffee in the afternoons as much as I do in the morning. I'm trying to limit it so as to get enough water... but it's not quite working yet. I'll keep trying.
So, despite the exhaustion, I'm pushing on. I'm trying, I start out good in the morning, but some where in between juggling my day... I fall short. I'm working hard on limiting the "sweets" and I'm working hard at trying to find my balance. Right now, I feel like if I can just exercise my easy peasy routine (since I'm not cleared for exercise yet) for 4-5 days a week... then I'm a winner.
I know I need to battle through on my other goals as much as exercising too and I'll keep trying until I get there. But I know my limitations too... no matter how well I plan, exhaustion dictates most my day and with a 1 month old in the house... it's just the way the day rolls and I've got to learn to deal right? despite the excuses.
This week I'm working on exercising the full 5 days, 2 down... 3 to go. YEAH!! I'm also working on trying to get back to using the mydiet app on facebook. so, far... yeah right. Really wish I had a phone with a calorie counting app on it to make it all more accessible, getting on this darn computer is harder than ever these days. Some day, I'll have one or maybe a bodybug if I wish hard enough. :)
No matter your situation... Make it your best week possible.
