I think the world is trying to test me.
Today was just one thing after another.
Dante was sick to his tummy and had two “oopsies” on the carpet. Dealing with that put me in a wonderful mood, to say the least, but I did get through the Firm 30 session today.
Hannah, in an attempt to help out, decided to do the dishes and run the dishwasher.
Somehow, the washer started even though she wasn’t able to close it fully. I walk into the kitchen to a small lake by the sink and washer, and the door falls open with barely a touch. After trying to convince her that it was an accident, not her fault, etc., we got the mess cleaned up.
The high I felt after working out melted with all these lovely stresses today. I decided to run through a little yoga this afternoon to help calm down and try to get that great feeling back. Thanks to YouTube, I found a good 20-30 minute beginner routine, and it helped soothe me a bit. Time for a shower and dinner.
Day 6 in the books. That’s a full week of the Walk It Off in 30 Days program down with tomorrow being a rest day.
I’m not going to give up on this, even with all the little obstacles that make me just want to give in and eat my frustrations away. I’ve lost almost 8 lbs since I started walking with Leslie in February. I’m going to push through this 30 days and continue pushing myself to succeed!
What an emotional day! Yesterday, I mean. Had quite a few breakdowns throughout the day and was also working through that leg pain. We ended up splurging with dinner at Chili’s, and I ordered a salmon and steak combo. It was soooo yummy, and evidently I needed the protein because my legs feel immensely better today. I do feel a bit guilty about it, but sometimes you need to have a treat!
The workout today went great, even though I didn’t get around to it until about noon. I slept in, then we had some errands to run. All in all, an “ok” day. Much better than yesterday! I’m still feeling a little “blah” but sticking to my diet and the 30 day program will hopefully help with the blahs!
Understandably, I was up on the scale this morning. It’s that TOM + the dinner last night and some dehydration from well… crying! LOL I’m going to try to rehydrate well today and tonight to help bounce back from yesterday.
This week is a tough one for me. It is every year. 10 years ago on March 11th, my mom passed away from colon cancer. I’ve also been feeling extremely lonely and friendless, so this week is just the pits! I really hope I can move past this. At least I haven’t abandoned my 30 day plan!
Day 5, you suck, but not as much as Day 4 did. Hope Day 6 is better.

Today was alright. I had a loss (0.4) this morning, so that’s a plus. I couldn’t push through all of the squats during the Firm 30 due to my continued soreness, but I did what I could. I also bumped up to 8 lb hand weights for the bicep and upper body work.
Hate to say it, but I’m feeling extremely emotional and weepy. Not sure the root cause, but I’d love for it to go away now, thanks.
I hope tomorrow is better.
