What is Wrong with Me

Almost three days without blogging, what is wrong with me?

Mostly, all that is wrong with me is a really bad cold. It started last Friday with a sore throat, and I've been putting up with the sore throat ever since. I feel like I'm getting over it, though. Trying to stay positive!

I must have been feeling a little better on Monday, too. That's when I made a bunch of goals for this week. Then, I went back downhill on Tuesday. Here's what my feeling-good-self planned for my week:
  • Drink 100 ounces of water a day 
  • Get at least 7 hours of sleep each night
  • Stay within calorie range 5 days this week
  • Strength training 3 times this week
  • Cardio 3 times this week

As for the water goal, I have been killing it! Staying hydrated is always important, but it's even more important when you're feeling under the weather.

As for getting 7 hours of sleep, I am definitely killing this goal, as well. Since I've been sick, I'm tired all day long.

My calorie range goal has not been going so well for me. I do a relatively good job at tracking my meals and snacks throughout the work day, but as soon as I get home, I go rouge. I will be working on this!

Strength training is something I have been able to do this week. I have been sticking to an arm routine and will be doing my third round of this tonight!

Cardio is something I haven't allowed myself to do this week. On Tuesday, I began coughing and my chest has been congested and sore ever since. I will be working on my cardio once my chest is clear. 

As you can see in my post from Monday, I really wanted this week to be successful. I had a goal of losing 2 lbs. this week. I'm not sure where I'm at with that goal, but considering that I have been doing a little comfort eating at nights and that I haven't been able to do any cardio this week, I'm not expecting a good report from the scale. 

If you've heard the new song by Miranda Lambert, "Automatic", then you may recognize this quote:


Love this quote and I'll be putting in my time as soon as I'm feeling better!
