Welcome to another week of “Nikki is a human slug”. I stopped my steroid meds about a week ago and did manage to workout a few times this week. In fact on Thursday I busted out 50 minutes worth of cardio and 35 minutes of some weight training. And WOW am I sore! So, I did workout, but only 3 times which is one day short of the 4 days I went for. But that’s okay….it is. Next week will be better I hope. *Cringing*
I’m really struggling with my motivation. It seems to come and go. I should be thankful I even worked out 3 days because believe me, I sure didn’t want to. There are days I’m totally gung ho about doing something. Then there are days I feel so tired for no reason. I can’t blame it on anything medical because I’ve been checked for low blood sugar, iron deficiency, anemia and thyroid issues. All of which come back fine. Nope, I’m just TIRED. Maybe its the weather, maybe its the short days, maybe it’s just me LOL.
I also find it suspicious that I am usually more inclined to workout if I’ve had to look at myself in a mirror from the waist down, had a bad eating day, tried on clothes…..or spent time with the hubby (*hint hint*). Am I alone in this? Does having to stare at myself drive me to workout? And in which case should I do it more often as punishment?
Next week is a new week. I will once again try my hardest to work up the motivation to look better in a thong 🙂 I will try to eat less and add better foods. I will workout one more day for a total of 4 days. I will lift weights at least one of those days. I will NOT gain.
Weight stayed the same this week. Stuck forever at 162.
