I quickly realized that the middle of the week with Wordless Wednesday going on was not a good place to post my fitness accomplishments and setbacks. So, instead of Workout Wednesday, I’m installing Fitness Friday (because alliteration is all the rage in the blog world). I have to credit Janet from Going Crazy, Wanna Go? for the idea and guidance in putting this together.
It’s been a week full of setbacks, if I’m being completely honest. It really has. I’m working on a pretty large project outside of the blog that had me up really, really late every night and getting up early the next morning. This resulted in exhaustion, and honestly food was the first luxury to go because I was simply too exhausted to feed myself properly. To make matters worse, my husband was gone all week for work, which left me to single handedly take care of all the household responsibilities. I know that it shouldn’t matter whether or not he’s home, but the reality is that it’s easier because I can focus on one or two things and we can split up the responsibilities. Oh well, these things happen (is what I’m trying to tell myself).
Starting weight: To be revealed when I have reached my goal weight.
Starting measurements: Will also be revealed when I have hit my goals
Sleep: I averaged about 47 minutes of sleep per night from Monday to Friday this week (I know… I know).
Exercise: HA! Yeah, that’s a whole lotta none. Zip. Zilch. I didn’t even take the dog for a walk like I normally do. I just took her to a local dog park and let her run around.
Diet: If it wasn’t from a box or a grilled cheese sandwich, I didn’t eat it. I literally consumed zero vegetables.
Overall feeling: I feel fairly sluggish. This is probably due in part to the fact that I have eaten almost nothing but pure crap, but also in part to the sleeping pattern.
Goals for next week: My goal is to get more sleep, around 5-6 hours per night if I’m being at all realistic. I want to try a green shake/smoothie, and if I like it I’ll post the recipe, and work at least one vegetable into two meals per day.
I’m also doing the Mommy Blogger 21 Day Challenge with Elizabeth from My This ‘N’ That Life officially starting in March, so I’m excited about that as well. Have you seen Elizabeth’s before and during (I won’t say after because I don’t think she’s done yet) pictures? She looks amazing! Between Janet and Elizabeth, I have plenty of motivation!
