It was another one of those drop everything and focus on work weeks. I had several late nights at the office, not getting home until 10pm or later. I also had the challenge of missing my husband and daughter over the weekend. Daniel's step-grandmother passed away last Thursday and he took Holly up to a little town outside of San Jose for several days to spend time with the family and attend the services. I couldn't go because of work. So I spent the weekend catching up on some much needed sleep and spending the day at the office on Sunday. Overall it was a terribly lonely, stressful and exhausting week. I wasn't sleeping well due to the stress. I wasn't eating well, as I was hitting drive-thru after drive-thru for breakfast and dinners. (Which were all very late night dinners.) I wasn't exercising, or drinking the water I needed to. All in all, a really sucky week and the scale reflected it.
So, what I am I doing to get back on track? Well, tonight I am planning on attending Slimmons for the first time in what feels like forever. I need the exercise to get my mood to boost and hopefully, improve my sleeping. Afterwards, I am going to have a much needed lady-date with Alexa and Heidi.
Daniel and I have plans to walk after work on Friday night, and as Saturday starts the first weekend of October, we are making our monthly trip to Disneyland. That should be a very active day. I need the Disney boost too. I really do have a complete change of attitude when I walk through those gates. I might even request a special Sunday visit, but that might be pushing it. I do have another commitment and Daniel has football watching planned with my mom.
So there you have it. I am not proud, and it just proves that I am consistent with losing weight and quickly gaining it right back again a week or two later. I know that I have the ability to make some positive changes and deal with the stress, eating late, etc. but I just didn't have the energy, or desire to do it. I am hoping to get that mojo back this week.
