Long time since I’ve made time

Been a long time since I’ve made time.  I haven’t been working out consistently over the pass few months and I’ve got a few excuses (yeah, excuses…I could have made more time for working out):

I was swamped with work – I was really trying to be on top of things this terms as far as paperwork so workout time suffered at times

I got pregnant – I’m still pregnant and still trying to figure out what is o.k. and not o.k. to do.  My doctor doesn’t want me to do anything but walk and stretch even though I’m not high risk (I think she means well and is just being cautious) so I’ve been a bit defiant but as I’m coming along it is getting more difficult to do some things because I’m tired and my body is not as fit as it use to be with the changes that pregnancy brings.

I have been making notes of when I have worked out but not as detailed as before.  In my next few post I’ll have a list to cover as much of the past few months as I can find in my notes.

Goals Calendar

Goals calendar 2

I can’t recall what I did as far as the challenge on Friday so I just counted it as an unsuccessful day.

Biting more than I can chew

Last week I tried 2 challenges: Not having bread everyday and having a glass of water upon waking.  I realized that I’m not yet ready to handle more than one challenging goal – I was very successful with the water upon waking goal, missing only one day but had a complete failure with the no consumption of bread goal. I think I did have one or two days (probably just one) where I didn’t eat bread but I ate cake on those days so I counted that as a failure.  I will thus keep my challenge goal as just one goal.  I will make notes of when I accomplish any of the other goals that I previously set which up to this point have been:

  1. Don’t have bread everyday
  2. Drink a full bottle of water/lemon water upon waking

but they won’t be the focus of my efforts and I won’t feel bad if I don’t achieve them.

My challenge goal for this week (3rd  – 9th April) is a daily 12 hour fast.  So I’m not eating between 10:30 pm and 10:30 am.  The time is so late to accommodate my late night rehearsals after which I am always hungry.  I originally was planning for 10 pm to 10 am but last night I realized that after leaving class, stopping by the store and getting home to prepare the salad that I had, I would have had to chug the salad in order to get it in by 10.

It’s only 7:46 am and I’m already feeling the hunger pangs but I will hang in there.  There was a time when I was doing this everyday for several months so I know I can do this for a week.  Finally, since the challenge started Monday night, I will have to make sure I also wait until after 10:30 am on the Monday following this week for the final day to be counted.
