HYC check in

I'm in the dumps. It may be all the rain lately (we usually average 11" of percipitation a year, and we've had probably more than that the last month...not counting last month). Or, it may be the lack of discipline I've had. Am I trying to sabatage myself? Am I trying to undo all the good I've been up to? UGH. I haven't been exercising. I haven't been eating good (unless fast food for breakfast is good for you. No? Didn't think so). I just am stress and so increadibly behind and busy that I'm freaking. I didn't even do much this weekend...I could have been getting ahead, but nope. I lounged becaused I wiped myself out the week before with working and not sleeping so bad that I was comatose. The only thing is that I haven't been gaining...miracle of all miracles. I don't feel I deserve that though, which makes it worse. Aren't we our own worst critics.

Ok, so I have to change this. I can make 30 minutes to exercise. If I can nap in the afternoon, then I can work out instead. The napping isn't helping me not be tired anyway. I will go back to the cardio and calistetics type stuff I was doing before. And, I'll start over with the push up challange...we'll see if I ruined the progress there. And, I have veggies and lean meats in the fridge. Why not use them? So, I will work on these things.

Oh, and obviously I need the clinic more than ever. I think I've decided to do it, I just need to wait for a few weeks (@ mid august) to make sure we can pay for it.

I can do this.

Yes, you can do it! I'm in the same boat, but I'm confident we'll both make it through. I haven't given up on the push up challenge. I'm still doing week one. I may be on it for a while, but I'm finally able to do some push ups!

I'm sorry you've been dealing with stress and fatigue! Those can really mess up any plans. I hope you have a better week this week!

You're in Texas and you've had more than 11" of rain ???

I know grey gloomy days make me feel depressed as well, but we have had excellent hot sunny whether in the UK recently.

Wishing you Happy Sunshine thoughts!

Best wishes,
Sharon

rain can be a bit depressing! A short workout will give you lots more energy. I have found the walk away the pounds dvds to be very motivating..the one I have has three levels and there is a short one ...just 20 min that can really get you up and smiling as you move!
