Tired, tired, tired

Gosh, this week has been a bust as far as workouts are concerned. I have been so fatigued, bloated, and hungry for most of the week. I haven't done any workouts since Tuesday, and my hamstrings were feeling sore most of the week from my Tuesday workout. I must admit, I've been in an abnormal sleep pattern, and I've been spending alot of time researching real estate investing and network marketing with most of my free time. I attended 2 workshops this week, and will have a 4-day workshop next week. I'm really serious about embarking on the practice, so that has been really exciting. Unfortunately, in my excitement and onset of "female time", my diet & training have suffered. Friday & Saturday are really the only day that I didn't eat as clean (2 days of eating whatever the heck I wanted - bread, steak, hamburgers, french fries, fruit, pasta). My eating this week has been pretty good in general. I'm just having a bad couple of days; I need to get it together. I definitely won't weigh in for a week or so to let my body get back to normal. All this water weight in my system - I'm sure I'm back at my pre-diet starting weight.

I must admit that I'm stressing myself out about being prepared for the RKC this October, and I've even considered dropping out. But, I'm not a quitter, and I'm going to go and give it my best shot regardless. I've spent alot of time training, and I also have some interim checkpoints via 1x1 sessions with Lisa Shaffer, and am attending a 5-hour workshop (Mike Mahler/Lisa Shaffer) in Sept. So, i should be okay, as long as I get back on the ball.

My boyfriend and I redesigned our home gym this afternoon, which was a workout all by itself. I plan to get a session in before bed, and 2 workouts tomorrow.

I just need to restore my positive attitude and stop being so nervous and negative. Results will come with hard work....

On a more positive note, I've been training 2 clients with kettlebells for the past 2 weeks. Things are going well, and I'm learning how to teach different moves to people who just want to get in shape. Good stuff!!
