So last week, I took a “bye.”
(See that, honey? I made a sports reference!)
I knew things were going to be busy, so I decided not to worry about it. I took all expectations off the table. I didn’t blog, I didn’t make an effort to put Coach Krissie out front. I didn’t set any health or fitness expectations. I didn’t intend to build, grow, or expand. Other than bill-pay reminders, I didn’t even write in my planner.
I wanted to get cozy in myself and enjoy a very special week with my husband. a visit from Miranda, and The Niece’s birthday weekend. And that’s exactly what I did. I wanted to enjoy this part of March without guilt or pressure. I wanted to assure myself that I could maintain my healthy behaviors on auto-pilot. So this is what my last 10 days have looked like.
I didn’t have one of those cupcakes, but I did have birthday cake. And I may have had my share of whiskey over the St. Patrick’s Day festivities. But other than those planned indulgences, I am incredibly pleased. I kept up with my clients. I only made 1 of my 3 weight workouts, but I ran according to schedule. I made my 5 veggie-a-day commitment. I kept up with my food journal much better than I had been. I slept really well. Other than The Niece’s birthday party, I was moderate with sweets (and my stomach was incredibly unhappy with banana pudding + birthday cake). And I lost weight this week. On so many levels, I am calling this a huge win!
Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming!
