Week 6: -.5lb
Not a great week :( I gave blood on Monday, and the rest of the week my exercise was HARD. I had to take off Monday and then when I started BFBM on Tues, I was so winded and lightheaded I had to stop. Even this weekend, my long runs were really hard. I've heard that giving blood makes you feel winded easily for a week, and this time I feel like I had the side-effects more than any other time.
I'm guessing stress+blood donation+heat=bad workouts.
However, I'm feeling great today! I CLEANED THE CRAP out of my house this weekend. I threw away all the clutter and scrubbed on my hands and knees, and somehow cleaning like that almost cleaned all the emotional crap out, too. I'm feeling much, much better about everything. Taking it one day at a time, not stressing about the stuff I can't change, etc.
Also, JJ's traveling during weekends with baseball (except for the Big 10 tourney) is over, so it will be nice having hime home for dinner :)
Now, no one was at the group chat last night (or if you popped in but didn't say anything, I didn't see you) but I left the window up and checked in and out from 7:45 - 9:00.
I'm totally not mad about it, I understand everyone is busy, but I was kind of bummed. Also, how is everyone doing? Are people less motivated now that I don't post weights and things? I'm a little worried that a lot of people have dropped it or aren't going to finish. We're only on week 6! I know I haven't been the most wonderful leader, but I'm ready to step it up.
I want to really kick it into gear now. I'm not going to re-start the group, but if you're still motivated and working hard for it, please TELL ME!!! In the beginning I had tons of emails and such and now it's died down so much.
Talk to me, ladies!
