Because of the insanity of this week I was extra cautious with my food. Without getting into specific detail something terrible happened at the job on Wednesday sending me into a full panic. I wanted to eat. A lot. Until the food filled up the void of the long day. I did have a cookie—But I didn’t go off the deep end. That to me, is progress.
I didn’t have a lot of veggies but my fruit stayed up. Although I am still feeling the emotions, I hope to get into a better food routine soon.
Thank goodness for blogging and twitter and good blogging buddies. I appreciate you guys SO much. Reading your blogs and tweets keep me going. So thank you.
I felt good. I had complete plans to be EPIC this week since last week was such a bust. Work however made the decision that being epic would have to take a seat.
We are in the process of two new system training’s on the job and it is brutal. I usually go to the gym during my lunch break but that wasn’t happening this week. I was able to get out miraculously on Monday and I hope to get out today but that is as far as it goes. I got up early on Wednesday and made it to spin class but even that took *everything* out of me (because the four year old woke me up so many times the night before) waking up at 4:35am for spin was like the hardest thing ever but I knew I wouldn’t be able to do it otherwise.
So yeah, my schedule was really crazy. I hate the excuse that you don’t have “time” to workout but if you have to be like me and get up at 4:30am to get it in, so be it.
