This will be a quick one today. I didn’t do my official weigh in, but I’m sure it’s not great. I’m ok with it though because this week has been unusual. I weighed myself yesterday, and I had a gain of 1.5 lbs.
The breakdown: My week started with Christmas Eve and Christmas Day-my two favorite days of the year. Last week I said I was going to try to track, but I wasn’t going to be super strict about it, and that ended up not happening. I tracked my breakfast each day, but by lunch, I was busy enjoying company, so I didn’t want to stop and take out my phone to track it all. I was pretty good with my main meals, but I definitely overdid it by grazing. I also gave myself a pass on working out because I didn’t really have time in between all the family stuff. I could have made time, but again, I was enjoying family time.
Saturday and Sunday I did fairly well keeping myself on track. I didn’t work out on Saturday because it’s my rest day, and I don’t really have any place I can work out at my boyfriend’s house. Sunday we did manage to go to the gym which felt pretty good after my days of overdoing it and being lazy.
Then Monday morning I woke up feeling like garbage, and I’ve been sick since. My head and chest have been really congested, and I just have zero energy. Obviously working out has been off the table the last few days since all I want to do when I get home from work is lay down, and my eating has been crap. I don’t know about you, but when I get sick, I don’t feel like cooking a huge meal, and all I really want is comfort food. I’ve been overdoing it on the soups and breads the last few days, but again, I’m ok with this minor setback because it’s unusual. If it becomes my new norm, then I’ll worry about it. As soon as I am feeling better, I can’t wait to get back to my workouts and eating better! Hopefully by this weekend, I’ll be back to normal or at least to the point where I don’t feel like death.
Week 3 Progress Report
Week 3 loss: 1.5 lb gain
Total loss: 1.5 lbs
NSV: I did intervals on the treadmill on Sunday, and I was able to run for a full minute 4x. 🙂
Adjustments for next week: Again, sticking to my plan! Hopefully I’ll kick this cold soon and can get right back to business!
How do you handle sticking to plan while sick? I think this would be and instance where freezer meals would come in handy…
Have a safe and happy new year!
