240 this morning. I lost that 236 feeling again. (I sound like Maverick & Goose from Top Gun.)
Between the sinus infection from hell and the 3 days migraine, working out this week was impossible. The sinus infection is mostly gone and I'm on a new med to hopefully prevent additional ones. The migraine is mostly gone, but I had to drink 1 and a half 20 ounce bottles of soda (yuck!) with the medication per the doctor's orders.
Ah, so there are my excuses. And there you go. I feel like I'm failing. I'm not losing, I'm gaining. In my logical head I know that it will turn around once I get a good week of working out in and rid my body of the soda. My non logical/emotional brain keeps yelling "YOU'RE FAILING!!!!!!". Quite a little war in there, huh?
Remember these? I'm not doing so great.
1. Lose 15 pounds by 3/22. I can still do this. I just need to recommit.
2. Work out 16 days in January. Not gonna happen. I spent a week in bed with a sinus infection and the last 4 days laying around with a migraine.
3. Eating. I suck at tracking. I suck at the goal of journaling too.
So what am I going to do? I'm going to take my own advice. Small goals. Small.
I told Pete this morning that my goal for next week is 5 days working out. I already have to be at the gym Monday morning because I have a fitness test with my trainer. I can do cardio afterwards. I have to be at the gym Tuesday morning for our last workout together. And I have to be at the gym Friday morning for kettlebells. So that's 3/5. All I have to do is add in 2 additional days. That's my small goal. I'm going to focus on that and only that for the next week and see how that goes. If I accomplish it, I can then start a new small goal.
