My Journey to a Healthy Me, Days 227-228

Well, I didn’t get here to blog yesterday. Just ran things really late, and it was 11 pm before i knew it. I elected to get into my wind down routine. Unfortunately, it wasn’t working for me. I ended up stayed up till 12:30 am before getting to bed.

Mental game

I’ve been in a little funk the last few days. Moments where I just sit here and do nothing. It has been hard to motivate myself as well. I have been getting in my walks and workouts this week. Today’s walk was just a little fight.

I’m not 100% why I am this way right now, but it is very much the kind of funk I get into around this time of year. August is the month my Mom died 8 years ago. As much as I try to prepare for this, it will still just randomly hit me.

I am fighting it. Dishes and things just may suffer with me not wanting to clean them. haha. Just staying focused on one thing at a time.


I tried bowling tonight. Yeah, my arm is still messed up. No idea how long it will be like this. 😦


08/14 MyFitnessPal – 1576 Calories, 20 net carbs (8 net minus the Quest) (23ish hour fast)
08/15 MyFitnessPal – 1793 Calories, 18 net carbs (16 net minus erythritol) IF done.

Tuesday I made it to about hour 23 on my fast. Just couldn’t do any longer. 🙂


08/14 – 1:30 am to 7:39 am. 5 hrs 22 mins. 19 x awake for 47 mins
08/15 – 12:41 am to 7:30 am. 6 hrs 12 mins. 21 x awake for 37 mins

So three nights in a row that I am not getting to bed when I want. Tonight, I need to change this.


I have walked each day this week. Wednesday was workout day.

Wednesday workout:

3 x 15 calf raise hold
3 x 20 seconds One leg balance
3 x 20 sitting twists

I expected the balance one to be super easy, but I struggled to balance on my right leg. So I suppose I do need to work on it.


Workout day in the morning, and I need to get a walk in. I am also off to meet my son’s teacher. He starts next week, but we are going to have him pick out his desk. He will have the same teacher from last year. She moved up to 2nd grade.

Maybe, we will get some other shopping done for a few items. Otherwise, we really need to get more things unpacked, and moved in.
