Oh Monday, here you loom again.
Fitness: I can use one word for my fitness this week – SUCKED! I was in a major funk all week. I signed up for the next 2 week challenge and I need it! I seem to thrive on competition and challenges. Why is that?? It’s been hard to focus, hard to get up and do what I need to do. I’ve done stuff but definitely not what I need to do.
Nutrition: I did pretty decently all week. I logged my food most days but Saturday was awful! I don’t regret it because I made that choice willingly. But I could have made better choices, for sure. I am getting all of my water in and my biggest nutrition challenge for sure has been eating breakfast! All in all, nurtition-wise, things are starting to shape up, for sure!
Mind: Besides my fitness funk, I’ve been in a personal funk too. I’m exhausted most days and that is because I have a horrible sleep pattern. My doctor says this is normal for perimenapausal women but I hate it. Especially with two active kids. I’m trying to get on a normal sleep pattern, even if it is less than what I wish I was sleeping. But when I crash in the middle of the, it gets all messed up. I have faith it will get there though. One day.
Through this week, I have been trying to stay positive. I am still working towards my goals, even if it is slowly. I am still making lifestyle changes. I am getting there – I WILL DO THIS!!
And so….my goals this week:
- Log all my food every day.
- Drink all my water each day.
- Be active, do something, every single day.
Where are you planning for your feet to take you before 2011 ends? Any races or training plans?
This is an easy question with a complicated answer. I had all of these plans to be a runner by the end of October. There is a local 5K on October 30 that I was planning to be my first run. But things have changed now. My mindset is different.
I don’t want to be a runner right now.
I just don’t get excited about training. My priorities have changed for now. I want to get healthy. Then maybe I can think about running again.
So. I plan to walk the 5K. It’s in a beautiful part of town and my Sister-in-law is going to be walking it too with all of our kids. It will be the last one of the year because of winter but I have plans to walk a bunch next year.
