My weight loss the past two weeks has been negligible. I blame alot of that on my diet. I’ve had a couple days of eating and drinking whatever I wanted without counting calories. Saturday night was a Holloween party and the other night was the Yelp Helps event I went to. The day after the Holloween party I was so hungover I couldn’t workout cause I was nauseous and slept half the day. I also didn’t work out Tuesday the day of the Yelp Helps event because I woke up late and had to rush my grandpa to his doctor appointment, then I was running around with him all day and after leaving him I had the Yelp Helps event to go to. I got home around 9pm and was tired.
I was also distracted this week cause I had adopted my first pet ever, a cat that I named Wahly short for Wahlberg. Unfortunately it turned out I was allergic to the cat so four days later I had to return him to the adoption center. Having a pet for even that short amount of time was alot of work, he needed alot of attention. I told my boyfriend it’s a good thing I never had any kids cause I don’t have the stamina to pay that much attention, feed, empty litter (change diapers), rub and play with it. I guess at my age I’m kind of stuck in my ways. I’m OCD and need my routine.
I really feel like working for grandpa every day is distracting me from my diet too. Even though I can bring my food with me, (and I bought a 6 Pack meal management bag to do so) I’m still distracted and tempted when I am with him. We eat at restaraunts all the time, we ate at Sizzler the other day. I don’t have this diet stuff down pat yet at all. It’s alot easier when I am home all day to focus on what I’m eating and stick to my menu plan.
I’m waking up and still tired, even though I get 8 hours of sleep. I feel like I need 10 hours of sleep to feel rested. This morning I went to LA Fitness. I wanted to run because I haven’t run in over a week. Well it seems like I’ve regressed cause I could only do 5 minute intervals. My calfs were NOT burning, it was more of a mental thing. so I did the 5 minute intervals for 30 minutes. then I went to yoga. Downward facing dog is still a challenge for me but I made it through yoga. Only burned 350 calories this morning.
I wonder if I will ever get accustomed to this whole diet and exercise thing. I feel like I was doing better at the start of this journey but now I am feeling a little bit mentally fatigued from it all.
