Day five was when I fell apart.
I got up, couldn’t find the exercise video I wanted, so had to do a different one. It was for the balance ball, an upper body workout, and really, it did go okay, but my head was down towards the ground a lot, which made my headache (day 5 of headaches, day 5 of fitness. a coincidence?) so much worse. Surprisingly, as the day wore on what I missed the most of my workout was the cardio part.
Breakfast was fine: another variation of oatmeal, fruit, and tea. Snack was unexpectedly a mini muffin at Greg’s MDO (muffins for moms, whee). Lunch was a small portion of a low-calorie version of mac-&-cheese with some yummy herbed zucchini. Dinner was pasta & sauce leftovers.
Everything was all right to that point, but after the crazy day I had (nothing went right. nothing. And then the kids brought other kids home, which I’d forgotten entirely) I really wanted a beer after dinner. So I had one. And then I wanted just a few Reece’s Pieces, so I had some of those, too. And then another high calorie bit of junk before bed. Like I said, after days of denial of things I really wanted, I caved.
I was going to allow myself a cheat night for Mother’s Day and I’ll just have to think of this one as this week’s cheat and Mother’s Day as next week’s cheat come a bit early, right? Tomorrow is, as they say, another day, so I’ll just have to start over and be good again.
