I can not believe it is already Fit at Fifty Week Twenty Five.  Only one week left, and I am having a reality check today.  While I hope the magic fairies sprinkle some dust my way I have a feeling that last 9 pounds are not going to melt off by the 20th.  Though I am still hopeful;  you never know, right?

Fit at Fifty Week Twenty Five

I have been saying for two weeks that I feel as if I am coming down with something as my workouts have been dragging as well as my energy level.  It finally hit me yesterday.  I have a lot going on, am a bit stressed out and my body just crumbled.  I am dragging now and am not sure what the next week will bring.  I am planning on at least getting my yoga sessions in and hopefully, some cardio.  I just do not want to push it for the love of 9 pounds.  Is that wimpy of me?

I maintained my weight the past week which was a surprise as I continued the carb comfort diet from the week before.   As well, I did sneak in two small scoops of ice cream;  I was bad, and I own it.   I wish I were one of those people who lose their appetite when they were getting sick, but I am the complete opposite.  I got back on track with drinking water, during the day, and now I fee like a camel again.  As well, I did maintain some good workouts and was fairly consistent with yoga.

Let’s see how the next week comes along.  How are you doing with your journey? Tough times or easy sailing?  As always, I would love to hear about it!
