Someone hasn’t blogged in awhile. We’re not going to mention the lack of vlogging either. But the reason?
I ended up sick, which meant things got hectic. That means I fell behind in everything.
The real truth is that my bi-polar gave me a bit of a ride the past ten or so days. That means that I was barely motivated to move out of the bed for work. I’m thankful that I know the signs, and it didn’t get as bad as it could. I’m also thankful I have friends and family who help me in ways they would never understand!
Diet and workouts haven’t been the greatest, but since I got my Shakeology in the mail, I’ve had one every. single. day.
My IBS hasn’t had a flair-up, and I’ve put it to the test by drinking milk (it was skim, so that does make a difference).
Even when I’m doing butt o’clock early shifts, with little to no sleep, I have time to have a shake. If I have more time, I make it more special (currently addicted to Snickerdoodle😉 ), but I’m fine with just unsweetened vanilla and a scoop.
I get hungry at a decent time when it comes to lunch. With other ones (like Carnation Instant Breakfast, even the extra protein ones), I was hungry, shaking hungry, within 2 hours. Sometimes I’m not even hungry 4 hours later, when I’m usually going on lunch. I have to force myself to eat :O
I find myself looking FORWARD to the shake!
This week, the focus will be getting small changes in my diet. I’m a calorie tracker. For me, I have to. I can’t wrap my head around the container system, but I need to at least figure out meals and things. Thank GOD for Ashley’s accountability group starting tomorrow 😉
The 14th, I’m back on the PiYo train. I’ve found myself MISSING the workouts, but 4-5 hours of sleep lately means I’m coming home and just passing out. I just can’t do it. Though yesterday, I logged, according to my FitBit, like 97 minutes of vigorous exercise, cleaning. My shoulders are KILLING me today. But I’m not logging that as a workout. I’m being honest with myself.
Which that is a big mindset change, as well. Being honest with myself. I’ve needed to do that for a long time.
So, honestly, that was a long ass post, and I’m going to shut up now. Back to the sweaty selfies tomorrow
