Last week I did really well with my exercise. I worked out at the YMCA 3 times at night and got up in the morning before work and ran once. I was so proud of myself on Friday. I wasn't feeling very well, but I still went to the Y and ended up running for 45 minutes and walking for 15. I ran 4.25 miles and walked almost another mile. It felt great. I could tell that all of my hard work was paying off. It was getting easier to exercise. And now I am sick with a nasty cold. I haven't worked out since Friday. I haven't been eating well either and the scale this morning showed it. I am up one pound from last week and it is disheartening. I need to get my drive and determination back. Even if I don't feel up to working out, I need to watch what I am eating and make sure I track every little thing into myfitnesspal. I find that is the only way I lose weight is by writing down what I eat. It is very eye opening.
