So I had some problems sticking to a nutritional way of eating last weekend. Unfortunately, it continued into the week. :(
At first I tried to log my food anyway, saying that I didn't care about the calories--just wanted to keep up the habit of logging. But then I even stopped doing that. I haven't exercised at all this week, and my sleep has only been so-so.
Add it all up, and it's left me completely wiped out and feeling crappy as heck. A total reversal from last week's energy.
On the plus side, I *have* been cutting some of my soda calories, by mixing self-serve fountain drinks so that they're half diet and half root beer/cherry coke/dr. pepper. So that's one good thing. :) And the slump this week has shown me just how important it is to be a normal eater, healthwise.
The problem is that I'm having a really difficult time getting back on track. It's just like a downward spiral with my depression. I feel crappy, so I want to eat something to perk me up, like coffee or candy, but that eventually leads to a crash, leading to me feeling crappy again, etc. I'm really fighting agqainst Starbucks right now. I'm soooo incredibly sleepy and not getting any work done, so coffee sounds wonderful. But coffee will make me jittery and cause my muscles to ache. Meh.
Not really sure what to do, at the moment. Well, get back to tracking food, yes. But how to get through the day? I could just continue sitting here, and then go home and sleep, but I've got work to do. Argh. This is frustrating.
