Rough Week

So this week has been....rough.  I have not really been getting enough sleep and have been dragging ass alllllllll week long. Even today I am struggling...ugh.  But I did however make it to the gym 4 days this week which is usually my minimum goal. I went Saturday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  I may even go tonight...I totally should. We shall see.

So Saturday I wanted to get a run in so I did my Couch 2 5K program.  I was on week 4 day 2 which is warm up walk 5 mins, jog 3 mins, walk 90 secs, jog 5 mins, walk 2.5mins, jog 3 mins, walk 90 sec, jog 5 mins, 5 min cool down.  It wasn't too bad!  I was able to get it done and felt amazing after.  I had to cut the workout somewhat short because I was in a hurry to start my super busy day!  I am proud that I made it to the gym though!  Win for me.

Saturday Workout
I took a rest day on Sunday because I have to make sure to watch my back.  When I run or do zumba alot my back starts to hurt.  So I took Sunday off but was back at the gym Monday night for some zumba!

Monday Zumba
It was a great workout!  500 calories....I will take it!! Tuesday I was going to take a rest day but I was too anxious to get to the gym.  When I feel like that I have to take advantage of it and just GO!  I did my C25K program and did week 4 day 3.  It's the same as day 2.  Banged it out and then walked for an extra 15 mins with incline.  Not bad not bad.
Tuesday Workout
Wednesday's are alwayssss my favorite workout days! I was feeling miserableeeee on Wednesday because the night before I went to bed at 3am and woke up at 7:30am! And the night before that I went to bed at 2:30am and woke up at 7am! Soooo I was really tired.  But I can't everrrr miss Wednesday night zumba! I LOVE it too much!

Wednesday Night Zumba
It was a killer sweat sesh. I was dripping!
So gross but so good.
If I learned anything this week it is how important sleep is during weightloss.  Not getting enough sleep just ruins your momentum and motivation! It makes you sluggish and gives you a terrible attitude. I hate it. I need to work on getting to sleep before midnight each night!!! I also really need to work on my food intake.  There were at least 2 meals this week where I ate TERRIBLY.  And I know a bad meal here and there is ok, but not 2 times in one week.  I am working way too hard in the gym to keep sabotaging myself. It's probably why I haven't really been losing a lot of weight! least the reason why I'm scared to weigh myself and find that out for sure! can just tell when you haven't lost.

I am really my own worst enemy.  I go to the gym and kill it and then I eat shit sometimes.  I try to have clean meals during the week and I usually do.  But sometimes I just fall off the wagon.  It's so annoying...this weightloss for me is all mental.  That is the biggest hurdle I have in all of it.  Someone....find me a head doctor. HA!

Now that it's February, I wanted to look back on January.  I did really well with getting into the gym.

This is pretty good for me.  I am proud of it at least.  Of course it could have been more, it always can be more.  But I at least reached my goal and went 4 times in a week!  Even this week I am going tonight or tomorrow or both days!  Right on. 

My goals for February are really to just concentrate on my food intake and fight myself with temptation of making bad food choices.  It's so annoying and I KNOW I can make myself do better. So why don't I just do it?! Well....I am going to try to in February.
