Okay, I’m gonna be straight up here: my self-imposed break has lasted way longer than it should have, so I haven’t worked out in over a week. In my defense, I’ve been super sick–to the point that I had to cancel my therapy session on Wednesday because I had a fever of 102° F and my voice was a scratchy mess.
I’ve also been pretty good about not stuffing my face with everything fatty ever even though I really wanted to. I ordered myself Thai on Wedneday because I really needed chicken rice soup in my life, but other than that I haven’t eaten out and I’ve cooked proper meals for myself. Between the reduction in calories and the avoidance of super fatty foods, I’ve lost 0.6 pounds over the past week–which isn’t a whole pound lost but it’s not a gain either! Baby steps.
Overall, I’m not happy with my lack of progress, but I am happy with my attitude towards it. Since I said that some WoW time was my reward for working out, I haven’t played at all this week due to lack of exercise. I’m hoping that going to temple tomorrow and then fasting for Tisha B’Av will help me get renewed focus so I can jump right on track… and not having to go to work next week means that I’ll have to work out my own schedule but lunch will no longer be a logistics issue.
Meh. I was super excited about not having bitten off my fingernails over the past two weeks, but then I forgot to file them last night and when I got a snag in one today I bit it off. Then I bit off two more, and then all of them to even them out.
I still have time to grow them back out properly before I go home, though…
TWO MORE WEEKS AND I WILL BE HOME WITH MY FAMILY AND I’LL GO TO THE BEACH AND IT WILL BE GLORIOUS.
