Food was a bit weird this week. It was a busy week for events and work. I ended up skipping a few meals and eating really late (after 8pm) on a few days. I know that is a no no when it comes to weightloss but I was HONgry, mama had to eat.
I tried TOFU the other day and I was not impressed. Maybe I will try again but not any time soon.
There were some really bad choices and some really good ones, I really hope it all balances itself out. As I head to Charlotte this weekend for bloggy bootcamp, there will be no guarantees (I’ve been dreaming about room service for a realllllly long time!)
Even with AF being here this week I still feel pretty good. I realized that I really need to be nicer to myself. The quote “you are your biggest enemy” surely applied to myself this week! I had such a hard time accepting the fact that I only worked out 3 times this week. Then I realized, its ok.
In the weightloss world the emphasis is always on more more more, exercise until your legs fall off, do 300 squats, etc. I couldn’t do that this week. Period. I had a scheduled workout ready for Wednesday but unbeknownst to me I slept so badly the night before I could barely turn my neck to the right side much less workout.
It was okay though, yes I try to set a four time weekly workout minimum, it didn’t happen and it won’t always happen either. It was a weird week where blog life and career life overlapped and I threw a injury in there to make things interesting. Happy I got to do what I could and we shall see what happens next week…with no pressure of course.
