I have a recap of the weekend all set for tomorrow. In the mean time, I did some thinking about why I wasn't motivated to the gym the last 2 weeks. I believe that part of it was frustration over a lack of weight change. I had what Pete calls body shaping, in that I was losing inches and it was good. But my weight wasn't changing. I got burned out in my lack of progress. Then I had a fill and for 2 days afterwards at soup and jello and lost 4 pounds.
Bottom line, I got lazy. I thought the fill would solve it all and I could back off on exercising and watching my food. In reality I had doughnuts for break fast 3 times last week. In reality I wasn't at the gym ONCE last week. I'm going to start calling this my Superman complex. Superman in that I have a couple of items converge and it makes me think that I am unstoppable. In reality, I'm far from it.
And the more I thought about this, the more I realized that the Superman Complex isn't a bad thing. It makes me take a step back, refocus and reevaluate where I'm at/where I want to be. It's a teaching moment for myself. It makes me remember why I started all this and where I want to be at some point. So just when I think that it's all easy, I need a reminder that it's not easy and I need to fight. So I got my lazy behind up at 4:40 this morning and walked/jogged/ran 4 miles at the gym this morning.
This week is a busy one. Today Pete's friend Vic is coming from Texas to stay with us for the next 10 days. He hasn't been to MN in a long time and he's anxious to see his new Grandbaby. Pete's anxious to have a good friend who he can ride with and hang out with. Next weekend is Memorial Weekend and we agreed to have my almost 10 year old niece and 6 year old nephew for the weekend to go camping. And in all this I need to work, work out and spend some time with my hubby and his friend. So I need a plan. A good plan.
I know it's hard to see. But I scheduled in my gym times and what the plan for dinner was. I have fruit and yogurt already here at work for the week's breakfasts and snacks. I also have soups for lunch.
