This week I have a gain, but I am grateful it is only 1.4lbs. Could be worse. I am pretty sure it is water weight anyway. I feel bloated.
I started last week gung ho and excited to be moving! On Monday I started Jillian’s 30 Day Shred. It was easier than I anticipated. I also went to the gym so I can meet my 45-60 minute goal. I got to day four of the shred and my body was beginning to crash. By Thursday I felt completely exhausted and I knew if I didn’t listen to my body and slow down I would be in trouble.
I only got in four workouts. I was bummed to break my perfect exercise streak this summer of getting in my five+ workouts a week. Especially since there is only one week of the challenge left! Saturday I crashed for three hours not long after getting out of bed that morning. My body has been fighting a bug for several weeks now and it has all caught up with me. So the rest was welcomed and needed.
I am feeling better today after taking four days off. I decided to modify my goals a little bit starting next week. I still want to get in 5 workouts a week, but I am modifying the time so on days that I just want to do the 30 day shred, I will limit my workout to just that if I am feeling too exhausted.
Food: carb count with fiber adjustment
Saturday: didn’t track, but slept most of the day, didn’t eat much.
Sunday: didn’t track ,but not a terrible day
Wow! After running the numbers I am lucky I didn’t gain more than a pound. I was in the red pretty much all week. I had pasta on Monday and Tuesday and it is nearly impossible to not go over on carbs with pasta. Then Wednesday and Thursday between the two days I ate a whole bag of peanut M&M’s. They were Easter M&M’s I had tucked away. I figured I had waited long enough to eat them. I just could have used better judgment and not eaten them all!!! That could have been what topped off my exhaustion, sending me whirling into a sugar coma!!
This week I am going to have a week with no sweets or goodies. I am still allowing my protein shakes and fruit, but I have got to cut back on the goodies (my kids animal crackers, a jelly belly here and there, cookies, etc.) I am hoping it will get me back on track!
