Day 78! It’s Monday…again. Back to the grind. I have to say, I am one tired puppy today. Whew! I don’t think my body is happy with me for 1. eating crap yesterday and 2. not giving it a day of rest. Having that one day to rest and allow my body to recover from the past week’s activities…is really important.
In all honesty, since I don’t make a habit of it, I figured that it wouldn’t be that big of a deal if I didn’t have one complete rest day. Well, I was apparently wrong and my body is definitely ticked at me. Ha! I swear, I feel as though I could crawl into bed and sleep for 12 hours.
So, I think it’s best if I skip the 4 miles this afternoon and just do the weight training in the morning.
Also, I jumped on the scale this morning wondering if yesterday’s crappy eating affected me, and sure enough, I gained 2 lbs. Boo! Hiss! I had an amazing weight in Sunday morning and then I go and screw it up by eating badly all day. Not good. I’m not going to harp on myself about it, but I definitely will take note and not do that again. A cheat meal is one thing, a cheat DAY is another.
So with that, let’s get on to Day 78’s grub and activities:

Overall Feelings: So today seemed like a pretty uneventful day. I think the hardest thing about today was staying awake. I guess that would mean my overall feeling for the day is TIRED. I’m not exactly happy about the weight gained from yesterday’s bad eating, but I know I will drop it quickly. I don’t think disappointment would be the correct word to use, but I am rather blah about it. It is what it is and I’m sure it won’t be the only time it happens.
Like I said yesterday…the only reason I’m remotely blah about it is because of the diet bet. I only had 1.9 lbs to go with 2 weeks left and now I gained a couple back. I was ahead of schedule and now I need to ensure I am clean the rest of the time. I won’t dare do anything drastic to lose the weight because when this is all said and done, it’s about done things right and dropping my calorie intake significantly and working out even more just isn’t healthy and the right thing to do. I know if I continue doing things correctly like I have been, I’ll be find. It’s just a mind game right now and I need to ignore it.
NOTES: Nothing additional to add.
