Well, my dreaded yearly physical at work was this week and I am happy to announce all of my stats improved!! My blood pressure dropped ALOT and my cholesterol dropped too. I weigh a couple of pounds less than last year but my body fat stayed the same, 22.6%. I'm a little disappointed about that. I even had them do the skin-fold method and it was the same. My body looks alot more toned than last year so maybe last years reading was wrong? I don't know.
My goal is to get down to 20%. I have been following a weight training schedule for almost 8 weeks now and can really tell the difference in my strength. For cardio, I've just been running, mostly intervals or HIIT routines. I think I'm going to add some different cardio, like elliptical and rowing, to see if I can get more fat off. My diet has been great, very few cheat meals, so hopefully it's the cardio holding me back.
Drinking-wise, I have been mostly AF for 2 months now. I have been so obsessed with exercise that I rarely even think about drinking. I still want to reach for something when I'm stressed about DH but I don't even keep it in the house anymore. That really helps alot.

I have been doing so good the last two weeks. My head is finally in a healthy frame of mind again. It's so hard to get there sometimes. It just takes one lazy day for my brain to totally fog and get me off track. I don't understand it.
Well, this weekend I have a girls weekend at the lake. There is going to be lots of junk food, lots of alcohol, and lots of sitting. I usually look forward to this weekend all year. But this year I'm so worried about eating and drinking like crazy, totally losing any progress I've made, and getting off track again. I hate being that "skinny person" that will only eat a carrot while everyone else is pigging out. I want to enjoy myself with them and try not to let the extra calories bother me. I guess the answer is really portion control. Eat what I really want to but just not a whole lot of it. That is so hard to do sometimes, especially when Margarita's are involved...
Thinking ahead, to get back on track right away since I know this is a problem for me, I've already scheduled my workouts for next week and written out my menu. I'm determined this time not to just say forget it come Monday since I've already messed up my diet and didn't exercise for several days. I'm going to get right back up and continue my journey.....

I feel like a broken record.....always griping/writing about my unhappy marriage but never doing anything about it. Why can't I just leave? Why can't I just tell him I've had enough and want out? I am soooo unhappy and I know he is too. We've talked about it so many times but neither of us make the first move to actually end things. We've talked about counseling but honestly, I don't think it would help. Our issue is just plain incompatibility. I don't think that can be repaired with any amount of counseling.
I am so tired of this being the focus of my life. Life is too short. I feel like I'm holding myself back from living, from living the life I was meant to live.
