Well, this week I am REALLY struggling. Not too much food-wise, but more so with energy and exercise.
I had committed to doing the 30 Day Shred... Every day for 30 days. Yeah, that's not happening.
I have now decided I will take rest days and do it 5 days per week in addition to 3 hours of cardio. I was going to do it Mon-Fri. Now I have revised it even further and I'm going to take Wednesday off, and do the 5th day on Saturday to get my 5 days in. This may be related to the fact that I have ended up sleeping in the last two days and have found in hard to come up with the energy in the evening to go out and do it.
I'm having a hard time dealing with that because when I make a promise to myself, and especially when I have all of you watching, I'm not sure whether I am giving myself excuses, or practising moderation. I have a problem with taking things to the extreme and I'm trying to find the balance. Last week I feel that I over-did it a little bit. I was extremely tired by the weekend. So this week I decided to slow it down and hopefully get my energy back up.
I guess these are some of the struggles that come with a weight-loss journey.
I plan on getting up early and doing my workout tomorrow morning to get it out of the way and see if I feel better about things. I just want to wrap my head around it a little, seeing as I am confused about if I should see this (not working out today) as a failure, or a good move in moderation.
If only I had a personal trainer and nutritionist to tell me what the right thing to do is... would make all this wondering a whole lot better!
I don't have that, so I have to play the guessing game! Hope I'm making the right guesses.
On the positive side, one thing I do know is that I am no where near giving up. I may slow it down, I may screw up here and there but I am still moving in the right direction, even if I don't feel like a super-hero every day! Sometimes I just need to power-down a little and re-group to have strength to move forward!
