My plan to jump start my working out and eating right has blown up in my face. Last weekend I had a great race which got me all pumped up to get back to the gym. The day before the race I wasn't feeling my best. After the race I felt worse. I brushed it off as allergies. I did the Shakeology 3 day cleanse to get my body ready for healthy eating. I felt bad the whole time. I figured it was lack of calories and caffeine. After the cleanse, I still felt bad. I also had friends come into town this weekend. I went from eating/drinking nothing but healthy stuff for 3 days, to drinking beer and eating burgers, in less than a day.
So, my jump start into healthy living turned into a weekend of drinking, eating junk, having a sinus infection and the beginning of bronchitis. It has led me to gain back at least a few of the pounds I lost and has landed me in bed, not the gym.
I could let this get me down, but I'm not going to. I'm not letting this ruin my jump start. It's just a little hiccup. Jump start part 2 begins tomorrow...if I can workout without coughing up a lung.
