Howdy, cowboys and cowgirls!
Well, you can't eat like this and expect anything other than weight gain. Yup, up 6 pounds, folks. It was worth every Oreo ball.
Other than one day of attempted reboot, I haven't tracked food or exercised in 6 weeks. That's right, 6 weeks.
I feel pudgy, lazy, and absolutely ready now to restart. Mentally ready and physically needy.
What I mean by that is that I've been feeling sooooooo tired. To the point of kind of wondering what is wrong with me. Am I sick??? Well, anything is possible, but I've come to believe that it's all the crap I'm eating. Sugar, sugar, sugar. AND complete and total lack of exercise. I felt so much better when I was eating better and actually moving my body on a regular basis. This piggish slothfulness only encourages more piggish slothfulness.
Don't get me wrong. I've been rather enjoying some down time. Some laziness. Some relaxation. But... this cannot continue. I don't want to continue gaining a pound a week. Good Lord... can you imagine? I'd gain 52 pounds in a year at this rate!!
I want to get my energy back. I want to feel comfortable in my clothes again! (It's amazing what 6 extra pounds do to how your jeans fit!)
And so it begins. I am starting by cutting waaaaaaaaaaaay back on sugar consumption and amping up my water intake. And -- dare I say it -- getting my buns back to the Y. Today. Yes, I will do it.
