And a struggle it has been. This week has been rough at work and personally. I flake off my workout on Monday, walked Tuesday with The Fella, roamed the mall Wednesday (not a workout at all), went to the GYN (see yesterday's post). She swears I will be ok to workout by Saturday but I'm not so sure.
Food intake has been a bit better. I've been making oatmeal the night before using quick oats, 2% milk, dates, cranberries and walnuts. The only day that really sucked was yesterday when I tired it with Greek yogurt - not a good combo. If you want more quick oats ideas, check out Kath Eats Real Food. She has an homage to Oatmeal! I did give in to my craving and had bean burrito and a taco salad one night (yes, in one sitting). I also downed 2 glasses of wine last night at the encouragement of my MD (well, maybe she didn't say 2 glasses, but she did encourage a glass).
Since I've slacked all week, I woke up promising myself that I would use the hand weights in my office today during my lunch break.
Weight: 162.4 - 2lb gain :((
Upcoming Game Plan
1. Keep up the menu planning and quick oats overnight
2. Go back to regular weekly workouts
3. Strength train 2 x Week - this is still an issue and I need to figure a way to get over it. I think I will haul my weights and balance ball downstairs and set them next to the sofa. I can do them while watching TV!
I'm hoping the other ladies doing this challenge are doing better than I am. How do you deal with crappy work weeks and staying motivated to workout?
