This week was a failed one. Not only did I fall off the wagon but then it came back and ran me over for a second time.
Last Wednesday night we went out with some friends for dinner and I decided to have a beer…which led to 2 or 3 or
….let’s say I stopped counting. So of course the next day I was hungover didn’t feel up to par nor did I feel much like working out. Beer…it does a body good right? WRONG.
Friday morning I went and worked out but it was a struggle. Let’s face it…in my 40’s it takes more time to recoup from a night of drinking. Like days instead of hours. And it just goes to show that what we fuel our bodies with can make or break how we feel.
Then Saturday my hubby and I decided to go into the city for our Valentine’s Day celebration since this weekend is Super Bowl and he will be working the two weekends after that. Now mind you, we did A LOT of walking that day…cause we were shopping. I had reached my goal of 20 pounds gone and treated myself to some new workout clothes, workout shoes, and a pair of jeans 2 sizes smaller.
Then we went to dinner…at the Macaroni Grille…where they have bread, and pasta….and WINE! And let’s just mention the fried calamari too.
Yep I indulged in IT ALL.
There wasn’t even a to go box.
Or any wine left in the bottle.
Therefore Sunday I didn’t go to the gym…I moved around pretty much like a sloth…never leaving my pajamas or my bed for that matter…and I watched TV ALL. DAY. LONG. I can’t remember the last time I watched that much TV. It was cold and snowing outside after already dumping a bunch of snow on us the day before so needless to say it was a day to be stuck in the house and the perfect day to
be a lazy ass do nothing.
But Monday’s were made for getting back on track! And that’s just what I did! I went to the gym in the morning and to Zumba in the evening. Also hit the grocery store in between which is a workout in itself.
This is one day’s worth of tracking. Yep I am proud!
So now I am up against trying to decide if I am going to splurge on Super Bowl Sunday. My team is playing in case you didn’t know! Let’s take a vote…do I eat pizza and drink beer or do I stick to my guns and stay on track for the remainder of the month?
And don’t forget that Monday Feb 8 is my #activitytrackerchallenge! I have a few of you motivated to take me up on it let’s get some more!!! If you missed the details about it you can read them here.
My results for this week are below. Even with getting off track I still lost almost a pound…therefore the scale as of this morning says the same as it did last Wednesday! I am ok with that. Still shooting for 90,000 in a week. I WILL GET THERE!
Now get your ass up and get moving!!!
