Day 3: Today was hard.
Riding the high of yesterday’s success, I’ve decided to try to keep logging my food every day. I don’t plan on making any diet changes just yet – my priority is walking 15,000 steps each day – but I figure I might as well give it a try. And if I fail, that’s ok, because it’s not my primary focus.
Which is a good thing because today was hard folks. It was the last lazy day of a very lazy week. We had family in town and since it’s summer, I’m working less to spend more time at home with the kiddos. Unfortunately, I haven’t been feeling so hot. The adrenaline from the last two days of this challenge have kept me moving, but today… well, today was hard. I alternated between finding ways to get my steps in (like pacing around the house and walking to the grocery store) and laying on the couch complaining of all sorts of “I feel sick” symptoms.
In the end, I have my husband to thank for helping me reach my step goal today. This morning, I decided to tell him about the challenge and blog. I figured I would need to do some walking around the house throughout the day to get my steps in and naturally, he’d be curious as to what exactly I was doing. I’m lucky, I have a pretty awesome husband, and as usual, he was supportive of my latest goal. He asked me what my step count was throughout the day, reminding me to move. He kept me going whenever I felt like giving up. He also kept me from losing my shit (pardon the expression) when my Garmin suddenly went black. For an hour or so there, I thought I’d lost my ability to track my steps. Luckily, it was still tracking and eventually came back online.
Now, after hitting my goal, here I sit, watching Avengers: Infinity War (again) while whining to myself about how gross I feel and hoping I feel better tomorrow in order to workout at 5:00 am. As much as I hate the idea of going to the gym tomorrow, I am desperate to get back into my “normal” daily routine. Without a routine, I feel off, but more about that some other time.
