Weight Loss: Day 26

Day 26: I forgot to workout

I don’t know what it was today, but for some reason I just forgot to workout! That hasn’t happened this whole time I’ve been going through the Weight Loss Journey. I would say there are more times than you can count on your hands that I have been dreading my workouts and counting down the minutes until they were done.

Today I got up in the morning, tossed and turned a little bit, then fell back to sleep. We woke up at around 10:30! Rambo is usually waking us up at around 6:30am trying to get water and snacks. Either I was just too tired and slept right through it, or Rambo was so tired that he didn’t want to meow all morning for some cat treats!

Michael and I finally got up and started talking about what we would be doing for the day. Would we go to the Gilroy Garlic Festival, or would we decide to save a little money? As it turned out, our budget was off for the month and this is where we decided to stay in and clean up the house instead.

Of course I couldn’t get through the day without weighing myself

I weighed in this morning

172.0 again!

Weight Loss: Day 26

Now back to cleaning…

You could say I’m a bit of a hoarder. I try hard to throw things away, but for some reason we just accumulate more and more stuff. Luckily I married a man who likes to throw things away. If he cleans without me knowing it, he throws things away that I don’t even remember I have and I realize yet again that I collect things I don’t need. At least we balance each other out.

This weekend he wanted to clean- and his wanting to clean is a little contagious until I start going through things that I own and try to justify why I need it. So I get motivated to start, and demotivated to continue. This is why I only contribute a little bit.

We cleaned and cleaned and cleaned.

Then we got hungry. So we grabbed some food, and then headed back home. This is where the food coma started. After eating a pretty big meal, I started getting sleepy, and I napped for a few hours. By the time I woke up, it was too late for me to workout.

Our shower has a water pressure issue so it whistles really loud. I need to shower after my workout but we don’t run the shower after 9pm. So I found myself unable to workout. But I had completely forgotten about it. The rest of the week I had been dreading the workout so bad that it almost ate at me all day. Exercising in the morning allows me to get it done and be able to move on with my day. But I didn’t wake up early to get the day started off on the right foot this morning.

Crazy day it was- I guess I will call this my rest day?
