Back on Track

i can still say that I have been to the Y 5 times a week, 40 minutes a time, for six weeks. I think this is a lifetime consistency record.

I also went to the doctor yesterday who prescribed test strips so I can start testing my blood sugars again. We talked a bit about diet and I know I need to get back on track, but with all our other stress it just isn't a huge priority...

Broke My Stride, but there's Still Hope

Well, i couldn't do it this morning. With all of the stress that you can read about here I was just too exhausted.

HOWEVER, if I can make myself go to the YMCA tomorrow morning I will still be able to say that I've been 5 times a week for 6 weeks (exept when it was closed on Labor Day). Can you tell I have a touch of OCD with all these details?

So I need to make it up tomorrow.

I have a doctors appointment today at 2:15. He's going to yell at me about not monitoring my blood sugars.

My Justification

If you've been reading my drama filled family blog lately you'll realize that I have been under a significant amount of personal and family stress.

In the middle of all this, I've added going to the Y (which I am now at a streak of 5 weeks and 3 days of going every weekday it is open (it was closed labor day). I work out 40 minutes a day every day and while every workout is not great, I do make myself go every time. Some workouts are better than others.

In addition, I have been trying not to eat out nor to eat unhealthy things. This goes better some days than others.

I have also deleted a computer game which was taking way too much of my time and I was finding myself addicted to.

But this morning, knowing that I had all this stress to deal with, I realized I just can't possibly stop all of my bad habits at the same time.

ANd that Bacon Egg and Cheese Biscuit sure was good.
