Workouts: some. Can't remember, really, because I've been in a February winter brain fog.
I think I've been in a winter-induced slump. While it's been a great winter here (relatively, for Canada), it's still winter. There's been little sun, some cold, lotsa freezing rain and crappy commutes, and just the general grossness of winter. Even though I've been taking ginormous amounts of Vitamin D, and C, and every other vitamin, my energy has been lagging. Therefore, no blog posts.
But I've now had 3 great sleeps (long weekend - Family Day - yay!), and the sun has been shining for 3 days. I feel energized from some quiet time and some exercise. I HAVE been working out because I know it does contribute to increased energy and brighter mood.
So, now it's time for the Monday morning weigh-in:
At the end of Week 7: -2 pounds (? I think). Total change 2012: -5 pounds. Total change since the beginning of the blog project: -12.7 pounds
Slow progress. Very slow progress. But progress, nevertheless.
Here's what's lacking: diet consistency. I get sidetracked by work, stress, weather, PMS, socializing......you name it, it derails me. I envy those people who can just focus. No discussion. No negotiation. No over-thinking. No options. Just do it.
But that's not me, and I'm working with what I've got. However, I'm very optimistic because the sun is getting warmer every day, the snow is melting (for now, at least) and we only have another 4 weeks of winter. Spring changes everything!
On other notes, I'm obsessed with Downton Abbey. Have you been watching? Some of the cast were on Letterman last week.
And I saw Ryan Reynolds and Denzil Washington in Safehouse. Aweosme suspense movie. Go see it if you need some beefcake to brighten up your holiday weekend.
