I'v Fallen And I Can't Get Up

I have fallen off the take care of myself fitness wagon. I have hit a state of depression. Feeling sick, hurting knees and just feeling sorry for myself. I am really trying to pull myself out of this slump any suggestions? I hate this feeling of just wanting to eat my way through this depression. Life is so stressful right now and I know this is a large part of the feelings I am having.

I had last blogged on Friday it was Day 48. Now it is day 52. I am not eating as clean as I know I need to or exercising as much as I truly need to. I am feeling it in my body and my spirit is suffering.

Daily Progress Day- 45-48

I have been missing in blog land lately. I have been feeling a little down. Between still feeling under the weather with infections and re injuring my left knee I have been having a week of pity parties for myself.
So I am starting off new tomorrow. Why not today because I know the way my mind works and this will work for me and my quirky ways. My eating has been horrible and you can tell by the way my skin is dry and not a good color. I know the biggest part is not being able to workout like I want to makes me become an emotional eater. Along with the major PMS and stress from life I have not handled things well. So today I make my plan and stick to it.
I decided not to do a weigh in due to if I had gained a lot it probably would have sent me over the edge, I am just in that state of mind lately.
Has anyone else hit a wall like this? How did you handle it? I am trying not to beat myself up and keep a positive outlook on things. I have done good so far and I know what I need to do. I will take suggestions if you all want to share.
Check in tomorrow. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Answer to Risa

The reason I am feeling that I am not eating enough is the cravings that I am having and getting beyond the point of being hungry to were my stomach is getting cramps from waiting too long to eat or not eating enough proteins.
I do eat the foods from my other blog. I am learning the key is portion control, less salt and fat in these foods that I make. They are still good but healthier for me and my family.
I was going to do the calorie intake count, but I get a little freaky and go way over board. I am going to keep doing what I am doing and as soon as my knee can handle it I will up the exercise more and add some different routines to my workouts.
I messed up the knee I fell on the other week again doing yard work yesterday. ARG! I can't wait till it is all better this is really getting old.
Hope you all have a great day! Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Daily Progress Day-41,42,43,44

I am so far behind on my bloging here. Things have not been the greatest with my workouts and the eating clean. Not that I am doing horrible but I am not eating enough or exercising enough. I have been sick and not feeling like doing much. I push to do what needs to be done and not much more. I also have been suffering from major PMS cravings. I have done well with that but it has been a struggle. Then having the kiddos home today has kept me busy also. Tomorrow they go back to school and I am planning on working out as soon as they are all off for the day. I'll check in tomorrow. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Thursday Weigh In Day- Week 7 Challange

I just realized I never posted for Week 6. I didn't lose last week. But this week I lost another 3.2 pounds. YEAH!! I didn't think I would have lost anything. I was really pleasantly surprised. I haven't been eating great and my exercise has been less than 100% due to feel yucky. So I am very pleased with this.

Week 7 Challenge
Mind: Take a license to chill. Meaning I don't have to say yes to everything. Make sure I am taking time to do what I want to do and need to do for myself. Not being selfish but giving to me so I am better able to give to others such as my family.

Mouth: Women have a tendency to not eat enough protein or calcium. Make sure I am getting protein every 2 to 3 hours and enough calcium for my bones to stay strong.

Muscle: Pushing my envelope. Using what Dr. Peak calls the Vit.I-this is the intensity vitamin. Pushing myself to do more, lift more and move more.

These are the three I will be focusing on this week. Have a great day! Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Daily Progress Day-40

Today has been a not so terrific day. I am freezing and tired all day but doing what I have to today. I feel a little better this afternoon. I have to be honest I am PMSing and this is the first time in almost 6 weeks I am feeling the munchies and cravings. Trying to control these has been fun. Oranges are helping somewhat.

Daily Progress Day 39

I am doing better this week. Sleep has been helping my infections in my ears and trying to not over due the exercising so I can to get back to 100%.
Sunday morning I hurt my left knee bad. Falling on the tile floor, left knee first hitting and holding all the weight as the rest of me fell on top. My right knee is doing much better now so I am happy about that.
I did my 2 mile power walk this morning with upper body work and a little time on the treadmill before that to loosen up my legs. It felt good!
Eating was okay today. I always feel that I can do better though.
I had a good portion of my energy back after the workout this morning so I am thrilled about that.
I will check back in tomorrow. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Daily Progress Day-37, 38

Saturday was a super productive day for me. I was up by 6:20 and started working I didn't sit down to rest until 7:30 pm. I got a bunch done. Eating wasn't that great. I didn't eat enough.
Sunday wasn't completely clean but was a bit difficult not being home and eating clean all day long. Walked in the snow and had a blast with the family.

Daily Progress Day -34,35,36

I have been working out but not feel so good. I don't think I am eating enough so I am going to go back to timing my eating for this coming week.
My knee is still causing me problems but I am working with it and trying not to mess it up worse.
This sickness had started on Saturday night and I am trying to fight it hard. I don't mean to complain but explain why I am so lax on my posting and drive. I am battling ear aches in both ears, bad knee, head ache that won't go away and my skin hurts. Sheesh I am a wreck. Hoping that after this weekend I will feel much better and back to the push to eat clean, work on the lean and healthy,
Trying some new things this week: Kombucha tea and green smoothie daily. If you click on these two you can see a video about the Kombucha tea and the blog for the green smoothie. Wish me luck!

Catch Up For February Day-31-32-33

Sunday was a non workout day. In fact I got sick Saturday night and I am still feeling 50% better. I did my 2 mile power walk with upper body on Monday, Tuesday I didn't work out. This morning did the 2 mile power walk with upper and lower body workout. I am not eating enough but trying to stay on track. With that being said I am a little fearful of how the scale will show tomorrow. You know the scale doesn't lie. I have been craving red meat a lot lately.

Daily Progress Day- 31

Saturday was not a good day. I have messed up my knee. It is throbbing and swelling. I have taken it easy and not exercised. I hate that I can't exercise but I also don't want to cause damage. I will be back on track on Monday with a clean week of eating and exercise. I have been reading up on what is best to lose the fat and I am implementing that into my eating program this week. It is said to do the cardio before eating in the mornings and then filling up on the protein and carbs later with veggies.
Hope you have a great weekend. Hugs, Bobbi Jo
