Ok, the last week, I was stuck. I was stressed. I did not stick to my plan. I just couldn't. The MOtivation felt like it was just drained out of me like when you pull the plug in the bathtub and the water whirlpools down, down, down, down....
I did not get up for my workouts like I usually do. I did not pre-plan my meals like normal and I did not care. Do you ever have moments like this? No matter what I did I could not get myself to do any of it. At first, I just told myself "TOMORROW, I WILL", but tommorrow came and I did not do it. Then, I went through an angry day of being "MAD, MAD, MAD" , a passive day of "OH WELLWHO CARES?" and finally the bargin day "OK, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!" My mind and my body was exhausted from being a mom, teacher, student, leader, wife, taxi driver, personal shopper, maid, gardener, housecleaner, laundry bitch and disciplinarian. No where in that list was caretaker for self. Now, I could keep complaining about it, but instead I am going to do something completely different-
I am going to "GET BACK IN CHARGE!" I was able to do this. This morning I got up and started the Couch to 5K program app on my itouch, and tomorrow I will get up to do this. I will keep doing the Supreme 90 workouts. Yes, I am going out of town for a few days, but I have to stick to my plan since I have to finish this 8 week challenge strong and it is time to upgrade the workouts since part of my lost of motivation was that I hit that plateau again. I watched a short video on how to get out of the plateau and one of the suggestions was to add some cardio to your workout. So I decided to do just that.
Since I am on mid-winter break this week. I am going to get back the time that I wasted and really take care of me by exercising, tracking my intake and doing things that I want to do. I still have to be a mom, student, and wife this week, but I am also going to be the caretaker of me! No one is going to stop me from that. I am drawing a line in the sand and stepping over it to be renewed and re-committed to my goals.
I am in charge of my do it now actions!
I am in charge of my food intake!
I am in charge of my daily exercise!
I am in charge of my can-do attitude!
Who is in charge of you?
Charging forward at full-speed,
