I started off pretty great. I let things slip, then started to get back into the old mind set. Not a fail, but room to improve this week. :)

So your week wasn't perfect. That is okay. You acknowledge it and remember you could of done worse than that. Especially since you have been "off" for more than a bit. I still think you are doing good, and that maybe you needed a week to "step back" into the challenge.

Exactly! And pulling things back onto the track is a good skill to develop.

 

How are you liking C25K? I remembering trying years ago, but I can't remember if I ever finished. I liked the progress, though.

I do like the C25k program. It feels like I make a lot of progress, in such a little bit of time. Though I guess 9 weeks isn't that little bit of time. ;) I know in the past I have had to repeat weeks and such. Sometimes it's even mental that prevents a run. Like sometimes you just aren't into it that day. Other times you don't think you are ready for a certain distance. Even the app will tell you to trust the system haha.

How's it going? Have you heard of None to Run? I found it when I was researching Couch to 5K...

I don't recall seeing it. I will have to look into it :)

Ok, so I have had a pretty bad time these last couple of weeks.  Things were looking ok. I knew I was heading down south for my Father-in-Law's memorial service. Plus the celebration of life party afterwards. I knew it would be hard staying keto, but was going to try anyway. Tuesday the 14th, that kind of all went out the window. I got word that my Grandfather (Papa JJ we called him) had died that morning. I was in a bit of shock Tuesday, but still ate ok. Mentally though, it went downhill from there. Everything just seemed to hard to deal with. So no keto, no exercise, nothing else. I tried to use my Grandpa's death as motivation to keep improving my health. He was a pretty heavy drinker, and was not in the best of health. Diabetes took his leg a couple of years ago. He had been in a home, but I hadn't seen him for a few years. Honestly, I had been preparing myself for his and my grandma's deaths for a few years. Grandma is still hanging in there, but hasn't been well for years. She is my last grandparent now. 

 

So with all that, we traveled down south to meet up with my wife's family members. It was good for her to see all the family members she doesn't get to see that often. I know quite a bit of them too. 

 

We came back home on the 19th. Then came the crud. My youngest has been sick for awhile now. It seems like meeting up with family members ended up getting us all sick too. So I didn't get back on the path of eating a exercise. I tried focusing on feeling better. I knew I was going to have a couple of days of nothing but eating Halls and stuff anyhow haha. I had just about zero energy. Just taking the dog out seemed to zap what little energy I had. Even would feel nauseous if I walk too far. Unfortunately, being sick didn't stop me from being an eating machine. boredom eating, emotional eating, all the eating. 

 

Last night, I decided that I just need to get back on track. This morning I am up to 340 lbs. ugh. Though, I knew it would be bad with how I have been eating. Now, I don't think I am going to jump right into running again. I think I will give it one more week. I'm still coughing up nasty stuff. I am going to get out for walks. I went out this morning for a walk after I dropped my kid off at school. I will have bowling tonight as well. I should be getting a decent amount of steps there too. I'm going to get my eating back under control starting today as well. I need to start listen more to my body for when it is actually hungry vs me just wanting to eat.

 

Time to see if I can finish out this challenge on a positive note :)

*hugs* I'm sorry for your loss. Keep it slow but steady, and make sure to take the time to take care of yourself and your family.
