Day 7: One week
Tuesday, November 22, 2016
The first week was a total bust. Lots of energy at first, and then I just... fizzled. I haven't been back to my gym since Day 2 when I thought I had injured my knee. I kept hearing that little voice inside my head that said to take it easy another day, even though I knew there was nothing too terribly wrong with my knee. I stopped logging my meals or worrying about my water intake. I just coasted. Even though that is not getting me any closer to my goal. So I sit around feeling like a lazy blob that doesn't go after what she wants.
I don't want to be a lazy blob. And I'm not starting again from scratch. I'm going to take it as a lesson learned. It's Day 7 and I've learned a lesson: standing still and not moving isn't getting me to my destination. I'm never going to end up where I want to me if I don't pick up my feet and start moving. Literally.
I'm meeting a friend at the gym tonight. I'm going to tell the instructor right away that I'm going to need some modification for moves that are tough on knees, and then I'm not going to worry about it. I'll focus on my form and know that I'll be slow but at least I'm moving. Getting closer to where I want to be.
Goals for the rest of the week:
Gym - 3x this week (TUES, WED, FRI), 4x per week after that
Food logging and water logging daily
PROGRESS, NOT PERFECTION.
Work on overcoming silly excuses.
