Bump In The Road

We've had a rough couple of weeks around our house. Charlie got a stomach bug last Thursday which was then passed onto Curtis and I by Saturday. There have been many nights of little sleep, and this is quickly transcending into a lack of exercise. One thing I have been keeping up with is my eating. I haven't splurged due to my lack of an appetite! I weighed in last week, and I had only lost .2 lbs.

While I was eager to know what happened this week, I was hesitant to get on the scale, because of my lack of sleep and exercise. Historically, if I am lacking in those two departments, the scale results aren't pretty. To top it all off, I am mid-cycle and bloated up like a hot air balloon. I got on the scale this morning, and sure enough, I had gained a pound. Grrr. Let's pray it's a lot of water :)

So, I need some encouragement today. For one, I need to get back to my exercise. It's been exactly 1 week since I have done any sort of anything in that department. I have a goal to get 4 workouts in by Sunday evening. It is also the last week of that 90 Day fitness challenge I signed up for which is one more motivator for me. I really need to push it into high gear again!!!

Can you help motivate me?? I need it!

You can do it! Now, maybe this is not what you are looking for but sometimes if I say I will do 4 workouts it puts quite a lot of pressure on me so I just do what I can and usually end up doing more. I guess everyone is different. Keep up the great work!

You can do it Em! I was discouraged too the other day when the same thing happened to me and I wanted to give up. Well I didn't and a few days later the scale moved even faster than usual so your body will do great if you keep fighting!

It's hard to do your regular routine when you're sick ... even harder when everyone else is sick, too. You will get back into it. And you *KNOW* your cycle caused the 1 lb gain. I always gain 1 (sometimes 2!) lbs during that time, but it goes away.

You can do it! :*

It's very hard to stay on any kind of schedule when sick. The sickness and cycle combined are surely the reason for the 1 pound. You got this! No sweat!
