Rough week.....

I had a rough week, I admit it. I followed my points, but I didn't get in any real quality workout time until last night and to be honest by then I was tired, grumpy and my heart just wasn't in it. So the result today. I gained two pounds last week. I'm picked off a little bit, but I know that I'll bounce back from it. I know I will. I know that I'm retaining water as my hands are swollen today and I have no ankles. That means sometime in the past couple of days I've had to much sodium so it is very likely that the two pounds I gained are mostly water. I've been drinking a ton of it this week.

It was a rough week, it was stressful and upsetting at work but I got through it without falling back on food. I'm quite proud of that fact. However, it also kept me from going to the gym, I just didn't have the energy for it. I'm not making excuses, it's just the plain truth. My heart wasn't into exercise this week. Yes, I went to dance class, yes I walked the dog, but no, I didn't go to the gym until Friday night and then it was barely for an hour. I wasn't in the mood for cardio so after just 20 minutes of cardio, I did my weights and headed home.

I didn't go to the gym today either. I just didn't feel like it, I went to weigh in, I did the weekly running around, I made lunch for us, I took the dog for a quick walk through the park and then I sat on the couch like a bump on a log for a half hour or so before it was time to head out to Vancouver where we spent the afternoon/evening with my husband's extended family. We had a great time, we had a lot of laughs and we had great food, home made pirogi and sausage, and cabbage rolls. Followed by cake for desert. It was great, I didn't over indulge, but I also didn't track my points for today. I didn't see the point in it.

Sunday is a new day, new week, new page. I'll get it together, starting off with a trip to the gym in the morning before I go on to the rest of the day.

A special message for my sister Kelly, I'm wishing you the Best Birthday ever! I hope it was a great one!

  3. We are always hardest on ourselves. I hope we didn't add too much stress, with PJ and Jessey, who by the way, say "Hi auntie Katie." ;)
