Here's an odd thing:

As soon as I started to log my calories, and write down here on teh blog what I was eating, everything in my brain started to go sorta wonky. I'm not sure what it is, perhaps someone else can point it out to me! Last week, I was gung-ho but on track, with energy levels high up. This week, I am slogging through the workouts with barely any energy, I don't want to eat anything but there's also the huge temptation to just dive into food I didn't even give any thought to last week.

Three limiting factors:
-I'm currently fighting off a sinus thing
-I have yet to go grocery shopping
-I'm not sleeping as well as I'd like; waking up on and off during the night and a full 1/2 hour before my alarm goes off
-I'm also stressed out about it

Okay, so that's four, but it's laid out. Weird and wonky, my brain. It seems it WANTS to set up for failure.

I'm not going to let that happen. So, watch me as I quick grab my mid-afternoon snack of trail mix and grab another handful for 5:30. Supper will probably be peas and a baked potato with cheese and ham. Not terribly imaginative, but it's better than Taco Johns, which I will be driving past on my way home from teaching bootcamp.

Breakfast was oatmeal, mid-morning snack was missed, lunch was 2 baked potatoes with 1/2 cup cottage cheese and 2 oz of cheese. I was hungry. Workout was done last night, although I stopped 7/8's of the way through because I got a nasty sinus headache. Today's workout was accomplished this morning. I made it all the way through that, but not able to get in as many reps as I would have liked. I have a fun/active workout on the Wii scheduled for later tonight.

Well- off to teach!

I came here to leave a comment, but my mind went blank, all I can think is "LET's DO THIS!"

We need to re-spark the community!

Anyone of those things could be screwing with your mojo.. I have been struggling with the sleep to. Not from waking up early but going to bed to late. Look at one and fix it and the others will follow suite. Stay the course we are with you and looking to you.

Thanks, guys!

And Ripx, thanks for the "looking to you" part of your comment. I stared at that one for awhile and let it sink in.

This is not only important to me, but to all of us!
