{Monthly Rewind} : August 2016

August started on such a positive note. During the first week of August, while on vacation, I managed to lose 3.5 pounds and had one of the highest mileage weeks in a long time.

The second week of August I managed to maintain my weight loss as the first week of the boys soccer practices started.

Then the third weekend in August we had family in town, which is always accompanied by unhealthy food. It also lead to a lot less sleep. So that the fourth week in August, I was struggling. When I get tired I make terrible food choices.

The fourth weekend in August, Thing 1 and Thing 2 had a soccer tournament with early mornings both Saturday and Sunday. Not much activity and even more tiredness. So the last week in August was torture. On Monday, I was so tired I didn’t even run while at the boys’ soccer practice, which was a mistake because Thing 4 does not like walks in the stroller. The rest of the week didn’t go much better.

All the progress I had made during the week we were on vacation is gone, but at this point I am just glad I survived. And surviving was really was what I was doing. I had very few workouts and the ones I did complete were terrible. That is one reason I am looking forward to September..
