Week 2 Day 2
I really need to work on bringing up my energy level, I don’t like to do too many things in one day although I always have so much on my list of things to do. I woke up at 5AM in an attempt to finish my research paper, of course I didn’t finish it by the time I got ready to go shadow my doctor but I still emailed what I have to my advisor and promised it’d be finished by the end of the month (crunch time!). I got back from the doctor’s at around 1:30 and I was just BEAT. All I wanted to do was watch TV and/or read a book. I don’t feel like going to the gym, or making a needed errand trip to the bank, or following up on my job applications, or working on my paper, or try to do something about the mountain of clothes on my bed. It’s like I can’t do more than 2 or 3 significant things in the day although I have so many commitments. It’s now 7 and since I got home I barely got off of the couch. I swear if it wasn’t for the fact that I’m losing weight and eating healthy I’d be depressed right now. I’m not sure if it’s even about energy or why I get like this.
Cecille at body image suggested I should really try to get 4 workouts in the week. Last week I only worked out twice and they were pretty moderate workouts, I haven’t gone to the gym yet this week and I know I won’t be able to go tomorrow or Sunday because my schedule is packed on both days and if I can spare time it should be for finishing my paper which is causing me a great deal of stress and panic.
Just like yesterday, today for lunch I had chicken salad and ravioli but about a third of the portions of yesterday, literally it was a couple of raviolis (big ones) and like 5 bites of chicken salad- and I added a peach. I was soooooo full but my lunch was still about 400 calories. I’ve already had six cups of coffee and I feel my heart beating a bit fast and my hands are shaky, so that will be the last of the coffee for the day.
I didn’t have much of a dinner, just some deli chicken slices and my total today is 678 calories, 19 grams of fat, and 28 grams of carbs!
