Monday I weighed in and had gained 1.4 pounds, despite a pretty awesome week. I KNOW all the reasons this happens, but it still p****d me off. As everyone in the UK knows we've also had a horrible week weather wise, it snowed very heavily and has frozen on the footpaths making it treacherous for running (so I keep telling myself) I've also slept really badly two nights, mainly due the the dog howling (foxes I think!) and my darling husband's car breaking down, then him being badly treated by the RAC making me ANGRY and I find it hard to wind down after I've wound up! Blah blah, excuses.
Tuesday I should have got up to run, but didn't! I had a really long journey to my first meeting and was very tired, so chose to try and sleep in, foiled by the bloody dog again. After a long day at work I stopped off to see my mum who is in poor health and I went home to cook a stodgy calorie filled meal for the family and even bought cheesecake. (not just any cheesecake, M&S New York cheesecake!!) I then made healthy soup and aimed to be better today. I slept better last night despite being woken a few times by the devil dog.
Today I have eaten healthily, but still have not been able to motivate myself to do anything extra to getting myself to work and essentials around the house. I did buy the dog a bone, If he howls tonight it's going to be wedged down his throat.
So I feel a bit of a Janathon failure. I did so well last year, walking every day when I wasn't running, but I've found it hard to dredge up that kind of energy. Tomorrow I have the morning off (Yay!) so am planning a run of indeterminate length and a kick up the backside every second step from my healthy self who wants to get back on top!
In the 'not a complete fail' category. 23 days of no chocolate and no biscuits. Today at the meeting there were CHOCOLATE HOB NOBS in front of me for the whole 3 hours and I never wavered. This afternoon I was alone in the office with an OPEN BAG OF MALTESERS!!! I did have to ping my elastic band over that one! I don't think I've ever gone this long and to be honest I'm quite resolved. I may have been over indulging in other areas, but on the whole I'm eating FAR less sugary crap and hopefully my body will eventually thank me for it. I hope it thanks me by losing 21 pounds :)
