This has not been a good week so far. Yes, I have been good and stuck to my no-desserts rule, but other than that things have kind of fallen to pieces.
It started with me not feeling well on Tuesday afternoon. I thought it was just general soreness from standing all morning working on something for one of our neighbors. But as evening came and it wasn't just my legs that were achy but my lower back, my shoulders, and my neck, I knew it was something more. I took some Advil and felt fine the next day... until the evening. And then when I was sleeping Wednesday night I felt achy and feverish all night long. So no exercise for me Thursday or Friday. :-(
Friday we already had plans to go on a mini-vacation to a nice hotel here on our island. We went with two other families who live here in Wamena, and although I was not feeling 100%, I still had a good time and am glad that I was not sick enough to have to cancel the trip.
Of course, with breakfast buffets and tasty food that I don't often get to eat, it was not the most successful diet-wise. I didn't indulge in desserts, but I did eat a bit more than I normally would at home for those 2 days.
Back home on Monday early afternoon with a bunch of work to do, so no time or energy to exercise on Monday either.
Today (Tuesday) I hope to get at least 20 min of exercise in and not over-exert myself since I am still not feeling quite up to par. So I don't know what this week's weigh-in will hold for me. I just hope that those 2 pounds lost last week will not re-appear!
