I realize this is a little late to get out, but it has been quite crazy on my end. I literally had no energy to post anything.
And then I thought about it. Why was I feeling so low energy? Because this week was a really bad week for me in terms of staying on track.
I binged on junk food, was all around lazy about getting any fitness in, and boy did it take a toll on me.
I’m a firm believer that food and fitness are the key to success and overall well being both physically and mentally. And the last few days proved to me that when I veer off my healthy habits, I pay for it with lack of energy.
I’m back to starting up again today, because it’s never too late to recharge.
And wow I feel great. Eating my fruits and veggies, walking out and about in the sun. Times like these I wish I could go back and shake myself and say “drop the cookies..one is OK but no the whole package!”
I’m also a social eater. If I’m with people and having a great time, junk food seems to make it all better. Well, at least temporarily.
The bloating I feel afterward and the mental fog, so not worth it!
In any case, this is the final check in.
I feel a little embarrassed that I can’t say specifically that I hit any kind of goal. But then again, this was more about getting ourselves moving, right?
Small steps and getting back up is probably the lesson to be learned here lol. At least I can say I didn’t gain any weight, which is what I expected after the bad week I had.
How was your final week? What are your plans to stay on track? Do you think Ramadan will help or hinder your efforts?
Thanks to all of you who have been participating. I plan to announce the winner this coming Friday Inshallah (God willing) and I can’t wait to mail the prizes!
