This past week for me was not a good week activity wise. As in I didn't get a lot of activity in. I didn't get much walking in, I didn't do my intervals like I had planned out. I didn't even do my yoga every day. It was not a good week. I had a bad week with my feet this week. So bad in fact that on Tuesday night I literally didn't get any sleep with them. I didn't get any relief from my compression socks, or medication. It was just bad, so bad in fact that more than one person asked me if I was all right on Wednesday as I was pale as a ghost and looked miserable. I realized on Thursday how bad I must have looked when my dad called me to check on me. I was at their house briefly on Wednesday to take my mom somewhere and my dad was worried about me I looked so horrible and didn't have that usual pep in my step.
My feet were better on Thursday and Friday but I still didn't get out and do my walking, all sorts of excuses abound! I was tired, my feet were still sore, it was raining, I was busy, I keep coughing. All sorts of excuses and that's exactly what it was! Excuses. I only earned 20 activity points last week, which is less than half of what I normally earn. I've know I need to just suck it up buttercup and get on with it! My feet hurt, oh well, they are still going to hurt if I'm sitting doing nothing. It's raining out, that's why you have a water proof jacket, a baseball cap and two pairs of runners. It's dark out, that's why you have a reflective vest and reflective light up arm bands. No more excuses! I need to kick it up a notch and get back to the activity level I was at when I was losing weight steadily.
Despite my lack of activity, I did have a loss this week, I lost almost a pound. I'm back to where I was two weeks ago, so that's a good thing. Now, with getting refocused on my activity, I need to get on with the job of losing weight, no more of this losing a few ounces one week, gaining a few ounces the next!
Here I am - refocused and ready to move it, move it!
