Before I get into what I have to say, I want you to hop over to My Sentiment ExactLee and read about thehorror story this single mother has with PepBoys. It is despicable, to say the least and outright malicious, to say the most. Be very very careful handing over your car to PepBoys…you never know what you might get back.
Now that we have that out of the way, we can get back to business! Yesterday was not a great day. I spent most of my day in bed congested from head to toe. I haven’t felt that bad in ages. I even had to call into work. Not great. That bottle of NyQuil did me well, but also left me feeling extremely groggy for most of the day. I only took one dose on Tuesday night, but it left me feeling fuzzy up until bedtime last night. It was nuts. But, at least that’s past for the most part. I don’t feel great, but I don’t think I’m going to die so that’s good news.
I’m on Day 4 of the Mamavation 2 Week Challenge now. I’m happy to report that I did end up doing my workout yesterday, although I only made it through two circuits instead of the three that are required, but I think that’s acceptable considering I could hardly breathe by the end of it. This morning’s workout was much better and I can feel myself getting a bit stronger already. The 5 a.m. wake up call is not always welcome, but I’m doing it. Pulling myself out of bed is definitely not easy, but I remind myself every day what’s on the line and I know that if I skip even one day, I’m likely to never do it again. So, I’m pushing myself to my very limits. I am loving the changes I am seeing in myself, though.
The Special K Challengeis still going strong. I’m officially done with the “diet” on Sunday, but I am goign to stick with it a bit longer. I realize that replacing two meals each day is not a long-term thing I can do, but I can definitely take some of the things I’ve learned and put them to good use. The Special K Challenge was just a starting point that has pushed me to really work at getting myself healthy and back to a healthy weight. I’m starting to find that I really do like healthy food – I’ve just psyched myself out of it so many times and I thought I hated all things healthy. I’m finally learning to really understand what’s on my plate, thanks to a little help from my friends and I’m making changes to my eating habits that will do me well in the years to come.
All in all, I am feeling pretty darn good. I don’t know if I’m going to hit my 10 pound goal this week, but I am totally okay with that. I can feel the difference and I think that’s the main goal, right? I want to feel better, not just look better (although that would be nice, too).
