Wow, it's been a long time since I last posted a blog entry. I wish I could say that I've been away and everything's been good. However, that is not the case. Nor can I say that horrible things happened that kept me away, and for that I am grateful. So what's the deal?
Well, school ended in June and so did all my structure. Not too bad since I was available to go to the gym everyday and I stayed on course with that. I stopped tracking food. Then school started, my kids activities started, schedules shifted..I stopped going to the gym every day..barely made it 2 times a week.
Every week, I would recommit..getting back on track, and every week I would fail. Tuesdays was the day I would leave school right at 3:30, get to the gym and work out before getting my own children. Every week, a student would stop in and ask if I could help him/her.."Of course" I would reply.
This week was no different. I recommited and got a good start yesterday. And like every other week, a student stopped by and asked if I could stay after school to help him. Unlike every other week, I said no that I had another commitment. I feel horrible doing this to him but I need to honor my commitment to myself. He was very understanding and said he'd stay with another teacher today.
I have gained 5 lbs since September and need to get back on the program. I am back on SparkPeople, I am tracking food, and I am making myself a priority. Hopefully those 5lbs go away soon, then it's on to the last 30 lbs to lose.
