Week Three: Eh. I don't wanna.

This week did not go so well.

Goals for Week of Jan 21 - 27 were:
  1. Track my food - not to count calories or anything, just to keep track of what I'm eating, when, how I'm feeling, etc.
  2. Workouts - I think I'm going to miss Zumba on Monday night, so make sure I get there on Wednesday, and get to Yoga on both days this week. Get some strength training in there. Maybe pull out another DVD that I haven't done in a while.

1. Only managed a couple of days of writing things down.
2. Had to change my plans on Monday, but still did get in a workout; then only one other workout all week.

What happened:
Monday, I had a meeting so couldn't get to yoga at noon. Then realized that Zumba Monday evening was not going to work either, because I had an appointment to go for blood tests in the morning, and I had to fast for 13 hours; I don't like to eat before Zumba and I wouldn't have much time after. Not a problem, I got in a workout as soon as I got home from work and then had time to eat dinner.

Tuesday was fine. Got up, went to the hospital, did the blood test thing. Went to work. Came home and got in workout #2.

Wednesday woke up feeling kind of crappy. Was still feeling crappy after work, so I gave myself the night off...and then again on Thursday and again on Friday. I wasn't seriously ill or anything, just headache, sore stomach and really tired. Like I said, feeling crappy.

I was hoping to squeak in another workout today, so I'd at least be able to count 3 for the week, but I was busy in the kitchen all day - made a quinoa salad for my lunches this week, butter chicken in the slow cooker and baked a loaf of Rye bread for Husband to have for lunches this week. I also called one of my sisters this afternoon and chatted for quite a while. I'm not a phone person, so I rarely do this, but I noticed she had called me yesterday (I had gone out and forgot my cellphone), so I decided to call back.

So tomorrow is Monday again and I am giving myself a do-over. Basically the same goals: write down my meals/snacks, get in my workouts. That's it. I should be able to do that, right?

Oh dear, do I hear self-flagellation for not being able to exercise when ill? In my book that's called taking good care of yourself! And I bet you'll be back on track this week; you sound motivated!

What's getting in the way of writing about what you eat? Is there a way to make it easier? Or is it a goal you're now feeling lukewarm about?

Good luck!!!!
