After giving myself a full week off training I'm ready to get back into it. Luckily I havent ended up getting sick, so not sure what all the lethargy was all about. Anyway my energy levels are returning to normal so I think its time to start dragging my butt out of bed at 5am again and getting myself back to the gym (although its been heavenly to stay in bed until 7am every morning!!)
I'm going to ease back into it by taking the pups for a walk on the weekend (poor puppies have been neglected for a while). I'm feeling quite lazy and bloated from not exercising this week, so I cant wait to hit the gym again! I guess we all need a little break now and then, if nothing more than to fire up the motivation again!
Seeing as how my last 12 week challenge fizzled at the end, I've decided that I'm going to go for daily and weekly goals instead of a BIG 12 week goal which I tend to lose sight of halfway through. The goals are mostly going to be 'task' orientated rather than 'weight' orientated, as I tend to get sooo caught up with what the scales say that I forget about the mental progress I'm making.
Some of those goals are going to be relating to my weekend habits - like the fact that I usually forget to drink water on the weekends and might be lucky to get a litre in rather than my goal of 3 or 4 litres. Also on weekends I have a habit of forgetting or not being prepared/organised for meals, then eating too much at the next meal because I'm so hungry!! So these are some of the things I'm going to work on and get under control. I feel like if I get some of my habits under control, then everything else will fall into place.
Anyway I'm looking forward to some nice muscle soreness next week... time to re-hash my weight training programme again I think!
Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
