Day 19: Punishment
Friday, January 23, 2015
I don't know why I feel so run-down! I feel even worse than I did last night. Maybe it is because I didn't do a second workout yesterday, but I am stiff and overly tired. I have been dragging myself around all day! I came home this afternoon and did 4 Really, Big Miles and I hated every second of it. Then later I did the ST video and another 3 HIIT Miles, which were so pathetic that I hesitate to even count them. But my goal was to make-up the 2 other miles for yesterday & the ST video, as well as hit my 5 miles for today...and I did that! I feel like I can go into Friday knowing that I deserve a rest day, so now I will actually LET myself enjoy it.
I have only tracked about half of my food today because I just don't feel like sitting at my computer, and it is a pain to do it on my tablet, so I will just leave it until tomorrow. I'm not worried though...I know I am under on my calories and sodium, I just don't know my ratios. I definitely hit my water goals today! I think I am at 12 servings or more.
I just can't seem to get enough sleep right now. I am hoping that this weekend will get me caught up and back to good sleeping habits! I really need to reevaluate my schedule and see where I can adjust my day more towards the morning instead of getting done so late in the day. I also need some kind of reminder system to help me get my migraine meds in earlier so that I'm not so groggy in the morning. I hate when I forget to take it until 11:30pm, but I have to take it regardless of what time I remember. Even skipping 1 dose my head starts tripping out!
I am VERY proud of myself for pushing through and reaching my goals this week! Maybe it feels like punishment now, but it won't be that way forever. I can already see myself coming to a place where exercise is enjoyable! I see myself setting goals and reaching them, and it just makes me WANT more. I want to keep challenging myself, even when I am feeling tired and busy. It feels good to be back in that momentum again! I really need it.
