Laura complimented me on my recent post for staying on track with my food and exercise with my kitty sick and my corneal ulcer. But the week reflected in that post was a week where I was consistently tracking and exercising, even if I exceeded my target calories by a bit. Actually, I have not been tracking my food since my kitty got sick, and I also haven't been exercising since I have been unable to wear my contacts, except for one yoga class.
I read a lot of blogs where people describe these crazy schedules and then berate themselves for not meeting every one of their weight loss goals. I'm not going to be one of those bloggers. I will admit it, I gave myself a pass this week. It was a conscious choice to give myself a break on the food logging while I was worried about my cat. I did my best to stay responsible with my food choices even though I wasn't tracking. I tried to put in my contacts to go to Spinning (when I thought my inability to tolerate contact lenses was just from dry eyes) and was in tears by the time I drove to the gym. I called the doctor from the parking lot and went right in. I have been giving myself eye drops several times a day, wrestling my cat to give him his meds five times a day, and getting less sleep than usual.
I'm feeling ready to pick everything back up. I may have to modify my exercise routine to deal with the glasses, but I can at least log my food and take walks.
