Oh my goodness, time got away from me! I have been having eggs for meals quite a bit just because it is fast and easy and no other reason. I don't ever feel like I have much to do in my life but I guess it is telling if I can't even get on here to blog every day and not notice for a couple days. Oh well, life happens and circumstances happen in the case of my life.
Sunday, I skipped the gym but did go grocery shopping with one of my kids who is watching what he eats and likes me to go with him to show support. That is the least I can do! We had cabbage and kielbasa for the family dinner that night and I did get a photo of that:
I did make rice for the guys. But that is my plate with what I am allowed to eat based on my macros and everything. I have been watching everything and tracking everything and gosh I just remembered I am supposed to be tracking my water intake for a challenge on here but I have let that slip too. Shoot. Sigh need to work on all of that. Make time for myself to reflect!
Yesterday, Monday, I got to the gym to make up my cardio that I wasn't in the mood for Friday and got interrupted on Saturday but did get an upper body work out in Saturday. Monday I am very proud of myself for. I was determined to make up that cardio! I usually do 6 miles on the bike and Monday I did 9 miles on the bike. I felt good about the make up day I did.
Sunday and Monday were overly emotional for me due to some circumstances going on in my life. And today, I was just so exhausted and had a headache. I decided I needed a ME day. Just shut the world out and take care of me. I obviously needed more rest. I needed to let myself rest. And I did that today. I woke up at 5:30 am. Hit the snooze until 6 am. Laid in bed a few extra minutes trying to convince myself I had the responsibility of getting up. It crossed my mind to have someone else do it, but ultimately, I threw those covers off, got dressed and started my day. By 7:30 am I was back at home, but went directly back to the bedroom crawled in bed and crashed until about noon. To which I laid in bed until 1 pm then went and showered. Still wiped out, after my shower I laid down on the bed again and fell asleep until after 2 sometime. I knew I had to leave by 3 pm again so at about ten till three I got myself ready to head out. STILL have the massive headache at this time. I am obviously drained from circumstances in my life that I HAVE to go through. I want to go through them because it is important and have waited 20+ years to have these circumstances appear. I know very vague. But it is private. Well I had been short with a person related to those circumstances all day and around 3 pm I texted explaining I had a bad headache all day, hoping they would forgive me and understand why I was so short. They called me after that. Good phone call(s). Which helped my head and made me feel better. I also let my blood sugar get to 70 or lower today. So note to myself, cut insulin by 10 units tomorrow. I have permission from my dr to do this.
I have been around 185 lbs for a bit now. I am starting to wonder if it is a plateau. I may start messing around with things like my fasting times and lengths and maybe adjusting macros. Just to see if my weight nudges.
It has been storming her for a couple days. It is supposed to be nasty tomorrow too. But I am hoping I can hit the gym for cardio in the morning when chance of rain is between 30%-60%. That way I feel on track for my exercise. I am considering breaking up my cardio into different things to equal a certain time or distance or calorie burn. I like doing recumbent bike. I would absolutely LOVE going back to a regular bike or stationary bike. But maybe I will try 5 minutes of that and see if I can work up from there. The issue with that bike is the seat and how my hip bones and pelvis balance on it. Throws my back wayyyy way out of whack and I end up doing rehab for my back for a another 3 years. And I don't want that! I have come a very very long way. Do not want set backs that I cause myself when I know better!!! So approach with caution! I have cardio options. And if I don't do that plan of breaking them up...the important thing is that I am there doing something.
