I have felt like I'm getting a cold for about a week now. I feel low on energy and a little headachy. Fortunately I haven't actually gotten a cold. I've found it hard to push my workouts this week. I actually missed on of my Jillian workouts last Saturday. I thought I was getting sick and due to a time crunch I only had time to workout or walk the dog. The dog won out. He doesn't get walked enough since he was attacked on Labor Day and I won't walk in our neighborhood anymore. I did do 4 of the 5 Jillian Michaels' workouts and an extra day of cardio on the elliptical machine. I have stuck to the diet portion pretty well but have had a couple of Hershey kisses each day. Damn that Christmas candy is still around.
I'm hoping I get out of this funk soon and have more energy. Isn't exercise suppose to increase your energy levels?
Well I actually gained 1.5 lbs this week. I'm not totally sure how that is possible. I think I stuck with sensible eating all week and kept in my calorie allowance all week with maybe one day exception. That exception was not worth 1.5 lbs. I think that it may just be water retention. I guess next week will tell me if that is true or not. I'm not getting discouraged yet. I'm proud of myself for sticking with this challenging routine for 3 weeks.
