Day 4, failed some more!
Never Give Up! Never Surrender!
I'm so tired today! Woke up with a headache, had a headache my whole workout, and crashed the moment I got home. I need to re-work my schedule so I don't fail anymore...although I fully expect failure, without it there can be no success! I just wish you didn't have to feel like a whimp in the mean-time.
Here's how it went.
Awake at: 8:34am
Scale Says: 146.5 lbs
Breakfast: Smoothie w/protein
Workout: Racquetball 90minutes moderate exertion
(I was suppose to do weights, but feeling beat down, we changed plans and just did cardio.)
Snack: Costco tasters (150-200cals)
Lunch: Chicken pot pie (640cals)
Snack: Chamomile tea, 1/2 bran muffin & 6 nuts...that's right, 6, I counted!
Dinner: 1/2 PB&J, one very tiny piece of cheese pizza & a 1/4 of a shake. (approx. 1000 cals)
I believe most of my short falls have come from my over-excitement of my impending event. I tend to throw myself into my workouts with must gusto, and that leads to early burn-out, and sometimes injuries. The plan is to not worry so much about what I eat, but just not over eating, and adding vitamin's, more water, and most importantly... smarter training. Now I just need to figure out what training would be smarter, and how to do it!
Tomorrow is a new day (or in this case...today, is my new day) I will stop working out when it stops feeling good. However, I will approach each day with my best, and if I fall short, I'll start with a fresh chance the next day. Practice makes perfect!...Try, try again!...If at first you don't succeed, well, you get the picture!
