Weekly Update

I'll also be sharing on...

This was not a good week. I was feeling under the weather most the week, and a bunch of other crap had me frustrated, angry and upset. I was able to use some of it to fuel a 9.66 mile run. I was behind on my training runs and did two back to back. I know this probably wasn't a good idea but I really needed to run the stress out and it just happened.
A big problem this week was that my body hurt like crazy due to the stuff I was doing at work. We haven't had any orders to draw lately so I was putting up fabric to be cut. This requires me to haul rolls of fabric, paper and roll it out. I was also packing boxes, which like it sound is getting boxes ready for shipment. So I was dead tired most the week. I actually wound up missing one day because of a bunch of different stuff that was going on. I think my boss might be a little mad at me because I refused to make up the time on my day off, but I'd had it with that place after the week I'd had and I still wasn't feeling good.

November Goals:
Track calories using LoseIt! : 6/7 I missed one day this week due to some stuff that was going on which distracted me.
One day a week of dedicated strength training: 1/7 got in my weights this week. If you count work I probably got more like 3 days in. 
Here's what I did this week...

  1. I hope you are feeling better and whatever has you stressed is getting minimized! Take care of YOU, lady!! :-)

  2. Feel better! Sounds like your job is pretty demanding physically, so don't beat yourself up too much for taking some extra rest days.

  3. Sorry to hear you have had a rough week. Hope this week goes better:)

  4. Despite the rocky week it does sound like you got in quite a bit of activity!! I too run to release stress, thankfully we have an outlet right! Thanks for linking up with us Shandy!

    1. Yes it's a great outlet for stress! I always feel better after a run.

  5. Shandy Jo- It sounds like a really tough week! I am so impressed that you were still able to get in a nice long run though. I hope you are feeling better and this week is going more smoothly. Thanks so much for linking up at Sunday Fitness & Food :-)
