The Last Seven Days
This week has been a tough week, no highs just a lot of lows. Thursday my head and body could no cope with anything. My head was splitting and I was in agony everywhere. To try and get rid of the pain I took a couple of Naproxen, which I really wish I hadn’t as over the past couple of days I have had stomach ache. (Note to self: Do not take Naproxen again.)
Strides & Falls
Last week I had a list of things I wanted to achieve during the week to help with my Fitness and Weight Loss Goals. Below is how I got on.
Make a note of the statistics – I did and it is not good.
Drink 2 Full glasses of water a day – 5 days I remembered to drink at least 2 glasses of water. Yay.
Only 1 Cup of Coffee allowed after 1 pm – Every day but 1 and today I have not had a cup of coffee, yet.
Walk/Jog/Run at least 5 miles 3 out of 7 days – I managed 4.6 miles 1 day. Every day but yesterday and today I have walked just not enough. In total this week I have walked – 13.1 miles.
NO SNACKING AT WORK – I failed at this. Friday I just gave up.
Due to the stress of this week, I thought I would do a fun #snapchatfilter selfie. I took one with every filter and this one won… lol.
This week has highlighted the fact that I need to work on my Well Being. I thought I was doing a pretty good job but I definitely have chinks in my armour.
Over the next week I am going to think of something I can do to help improve my emotional well being. One thing I need to remember to do is the #FridayFive This is something that I heard of through a blog called Milly’s Guide, which unfortunately is no longer a blog, but the author Lauren has a page on Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/groups/gratitudeforgoodmentalhealth/
Every Friday I read what everyone else has put and forget to post mine, though this week I would have struggled. So, I am going to try and find something to be grateful for each day and on Friday I will post on Lauren’s page.
Goals W/B 14/01/2019
Below are my goals for this week:
NO SNACKING AT WORK – Better prep this week. I went in unprepared last week for the temptations that lay ahead. Be Strong.
Walk over 15 miles in a week – Instead of looking at individual days I am looking at a goal for the week. I am going to stick with 15 miles as I believe this is achievable, weather permitting.
Drink 3 Glasses of Water Daily – It is going up, every week till I get to 7.
Post 5 Things on #Friday Five – Five things I am grateful for over the week.
In conclusion, last week was pants. I am hoping that this week will prove to be slightly better. For starters I hope to wake up tomorrow with no stomach ache and I hope to do better with my weekly goals.
