20/20 Challenge: Week 2 Results

Before I begin: Apparently there was a problem with people being unable to comment on my blog... but I think I've fixed it now. (Let's hope).

Today has been a rough day. The boyfriend and I had a hectic morning (a slight lack of planning on his part created a bump in my usual morning routine, which didn't make me happy).

At my work and there is like this little walkway between our buildings, but it's like an overpass above the street below. So it's probably at least 30 feet up in the air. Anyway, I totally accidentally dropped my cell phone off of it while leaning against the railing and the front of it shattered into a million pieces. It still works (kind of) for the most part. But definitely not enough for me to deal with it for the next year. Blah. So, then work was crazy and I was grumpy.

I SO didn't want to go to the gym tonight. I am freaking EXHAUSTED! My whole body hurts and I'm tired and in a bad mood. But I went anyway and did my C25K Week 2: Workout 2..... and geez, it was ROUGH! I did manage to finish the whole 25 mins(5 min walking warm-up, 20 minutes of alternating running 90 seconds, walking 120 seconds) but I wasn't thrilled about it and I really had to push to get through those 90 second runs. Right now it seems absolutely impossible for me to run a 5K.

I am feeling down and defeated today. It's taking all my willpower not to just go eat pizza or something equally unhealthy for dinner. I've always been an emotional eater. I thought I did well this week with my eating and I worked out at least 3 times this week (which is way more than usual for me) and I've been taking the stairs at work. However, somehow I only lost 1 pound this week. 1 sad, little, lonely pound. At least it's a pound in the right direction. It's just hard to stay motivated today.

Hope you guys had a better day than I did.
