I had a rough, rough week last week! Man. I don’t know what my problem was.
Let me back up for a sec…I loved my 7 day weight loss cleanse that I did a couple weeks ago. I felt great and will most definitely do it again. I’m working on getting all of the logistics of the cleanse organized so I can share it with all of you. I will try to get it posted this week if I can.
Anyway, my cleanse ended last Sunday. So, on Monday I decided to have a small “free” day. I went out to Chinese food for lunch with Kev and then I made cookies with the kids later on. It was great. However, I went DOWNHILL from there!
By Monday night, I felt pretty blah. Most of my kids have had bad colds the past couple weeks and I think I got whatever the heck they had. I just felt tired, achy, sore throat-y, headache-y and completely unmotivated. It was quite depressing.
I’m sorry to be such a downer, but life isn’t always super easy. I’m sure you can all relate.
So, I missed a couple of my workouts last week and ate entirely too much CRAP! I woke up every morning feeling just like an unmotivated slug. It’s amazing how when I feel sick and gross, I lose all of my “healthy living” oomph. So sad.
So, last night I told Kev that I was determined to get my groove back this week!! I still don’t feel 100%, but I’m going to take control of my health regardless. I’ve vowed to get my sleep, eat extra awesome and get all my workouts in this week!
So, last night I got almost 8 hours of sleep and I have been a machine today! Here’s a little overview of my accomplishments today….
A (Mostly) Clean House (I’m not counting the kids bedrooms, lol!)…
I got laundry all done (gasp!) and put away (double gasp!!!) The laundry sitting on the floor is my “big kids” laundry that they put away when they get home from school.
Quick side note: Is laundry ever really done??? Uhhh, no. Unless we all decide to go naked for a day, it’s never really done. Sad, but true. My goal is to just not let it bury me!
I also changed and cleaned all the sheets on all the beds! Sorry, no pic.
I put dinner in the Crock Pot (Chicken Cacciatore). I will share the recipe soon.
Made a bazillion protein balls…
Got my workout in (Boot Camp class at the gym and a little free weights afterward.) Check.
And now, I’m blogging about it all.
Yay, I’ve returned!! I love moving forward and being productive. I don’t do well as a “slug” for too long.
Another quick side note: This is not a typical day for me. I usually don’t get this much stuff done! It just makes me happy because I am reclaiming my life. I’m IN CHARGE! Cheesy, yes.
Speaking of being “in charge”, I need to go to bed now. It’s almost 10:00 PM and I want to continue my productive streak tomorrow!
I hope you all had a wonderful day as well! xoxo
