A Not-So-Good Week

26 Sep

I’m having a not-so-good week for staying on plan.  I think after a three pound loss last week I got a little overconfident and used up too many points too early – I really need to save most of the weekly points for the weekend.  That combined with my inability to exercise right now, and I’m over my points allowance already.  I’m not in a bad place mentally, but I think I need to get through tomorrow and start fresh again on Wednesday.  We’re going on a little vacation this weekend as well, and it’s to a place I’m sure I won’t be able to stay completely within my points.  Hint – what happens there stays there.  Although, I suppose for someone on a weight loss plan, what happens there definitely comes home with you!

I still wasn’t able to exercise today.  My leg doesn’t hurt when I walk most of the time, but I can tell that it’s still a little tender.  I’d really like to be able to run tomorrow but definitely don’t want to push it, so it will be a game time decision.  I would feel better about this week if I could earn those seven activity points!

    I’m having a rough week, too. Maybe something is in the air…? Only difference is that I’m mentally in a not so good place. I need motivation!!
