Yes, I’m a day late.

Y’all, my body is going freaking crazy. I’m up 2.9. I know I’m not supposed to really care during this challenge, but seriously? I can’t really be okay with that. Boo. Hoo.

This has been a tough week. I have a lot of high stress stuff going on family wise, and I know I haven’t been taking care of myself properly.  I’ve gone into ‘I’m going to take care of everybody and cook up a storm mode’. And then no one eats what I cook except for me. I’m a stress eater, while those I’m cooking for lose their appetite when stressed. Why, God, oh why can’t I be a person who loses their appetite?

As far as my habits go, I’ll summarize as follows:

1) Water: Doing ok. Need to work on drinking water throughout the day instead of realizing at 10 pm I haven’t had any all day, pounding several glassfuls, then peeing all night.

2) No fast food: I managed this. I did eat some Pizza Hut, which technically did not come from a drive through, but still is evil. EVIL.

3) Muscle workouts: Massive fail. I haven’t been able to get to the gym. However, I am going tonight and expect to be worked within an inch of my life.

That’s this week for me. Hope everyone else is doing well! At least I have some stuff to work on, right?
