I reported that I gained 3.5 pounds upon returning from SA which didn't upset me too much, but I haven't been on the scale since. Guess why??? Come on - you know....I've been crap eating and not exercising at all this week. I have a laundry list of
So this morning, with the unexpected gift of continued working internet access, I've caught up on a lot of blog reading and commenting. Seeing others' progress, victories and achievement of weekly goals has produced the desired effect of kicking my a$$ back into gear. So many people are just chugging along, meeting weekly goals, losing bits of weight each week, moving more. The whole reason I've entered this community has manifested great results just from my hour reading and commenting. I'm ready, willing and definitely able to resume what I was doing for that week before my trip to SA - eating less and moving more. That week of doing what I've intended to be doing for a long time but hade been not doing yielded some pretty fantastic results. I liked posting a big weight loss and coming back to all those "congratulations" and "wow!' comments.
So I'm heading to the gym since it's raining buckets and is supposed to keep doing so most of the day. I'm going to restock the fruit and vegetable stash I usually keep on hand, and do some food prep for the next week so lunches and dinners are partially done ahead of time. This always works well for me, so if it ain't broke, why not keep doing it?
In my heart of hearts, I want to free my inner healthy slim woman from the bondage of overweight, sluggishness and the prison I create for myself in my mind because I'm not where I want to be yet. I know I can do this because I've done it. I'm glad to feel my enthusiasm and desire back.
