Day Five: Food, Fitness, & Faith

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.
