I have to admit I have been lazy this week. Maybe I was taking a mini staycation I don't know but I slacked this week and I have been paying for it ever since. Here was the problem. I needed to go to the grocery store but 1 wasn't feeling it and 2 I have a little girl I babysit so getting to the store isn't as easy on those days. (There I did it I made my excuses). We were out of veggies (that is a good problem to have) and I didn't get to the store to get them, so we didn't eat very well this week. I ordered pizza one day and we ate that for leftovers the next day and we had a hectic weekend. I am proud to say that even though I wasn't making good food choices I didn't over eat. But needless to say I am paying for it today. I FEEL LIKE CRAP. I feel heavy and tired and sluggish and YUCKY! Oh and I forgot to mention the zit factor. I face is broke out today, I know it is the bad food trying to get out of my system
And my Gruve is mad at me too. I forgot it on Friday, then Sat I forgot it about half the day, and Sunday I spend so much time in church I don't get a green. So I haven't had a green day in 3 days. I think this is also contributing to my generally yucky feeling.
But it was a good learning lesson. I think I needed it because with my success in weight loss the last few weeks I felt like it was ok to slack off, but I am paying for it dearly now. I haven't wanted to work out so bad in my life. because I know moving is gonna help me shake off this yucky feeling. And I went grocery shopping this weekend and got some veggies again so this week will get on track.
I am also taking a break from the scale. I loved the mv campaign and the move it and lose it challenge but I don't want to become so obsessed with the numbers and I was getting to that point. I love to get a shout out but I think for now I will just weigh in maybe every other week, or when the urge strikes instead of every week. I am going to focus on healthy eating and being as active as possible. Its been working and I know it will continue to work even if I am not checking my weight every week.
I think I need to win this weeks blogging carnival after the week I had. This week’s blogging carnival is sponsored by a protein and detox product. I have tried a few detox kits before but never could tell much difference. Some people swear by them so maybe I just didn't get the right thing. Plus I am notoriously terrible at remembering to do something every day for weeks on end, so remembering to take a bunch of pills is not my thing. Since these are shakes maybe I can actually pull this one off. LOL
So tell me what you like to do when you feel stuck in a fitness rut or not in the mood to cook or go grocery shopping. Maybe with some good tips I won't have another week like I did last week. :)
