Thankfully, my workouts can be done completely indoors, except for my intervals because I lack a decent treadmill and don’t see one in my near future.  Since we got “blasted” with 2-3 inches of snow, I worked out in the family room while watching Swamp Loggers.  Did I skip my intervals?  Uh, yeah, I did.  I didn’t want to chance a stupid, nocturnal accident near the end of week 5, so I thought it better to wait.

The last few days have not been my best — there was a potluck lunch at work and I had two incredible butterscotch, coconut, chocolate chip things mixed with all kinds of other goodness.  I had shrimp, too, so it wasn’t all bad.  I was good at breakfast, but I didn’t have enough water.  I haven’t been having enough water lately, and I know I need to improve on that.

But I have done all of my workouts and all of my ab-only stuff, so that part has been great this week.  I only did one interval so far this week, but I think I’ll make that up tomorrow.  I guess the important thing is that I’ve gotten this far, which is why I pressed myself so hard in the beginning — to get to this spot so I wouldn’t want to turn back, to give up.  I have eleven weeks to go, I wish I was further along than I am, but I think that by the end of sixteen weeks it will be worth it.

Adjustments need to be made in my diet — I think I’m doing pretty well, but some days I know I don’t eat enough at the right times and sometimes I think I eat too late and don’t consume enough water and get enough sleep.  I’ll keep moving forward, recognize where I’m not doing well, adjust accordingly, and hope that everything works itself out in the end.

My diet was pretty much the average of what I’ve been doing, except that I did slip and have those two awesome cookie bar things, and some toast at dinner (I had “breakfast for dinner”).  I’ll see if I can find the recipe for you all so you know what I’m talking about, but I warn you that you’ll probably want to bake up a batch and cheat a little yourself.
