After a long vacation and a summer full of fun I stepped on the scale and realized that I have gained back a bit of weight. I'm not ready yet to admit to myself the damage I have done, so I refuse to put the number in print (can you say DENIAL!!!), but I am ready to start over.
This morning I have reset all my goal information, starting weight, exercise plan info, nutrition info, etc., and moved myself back to Stage 1 of the Spark Diet.
I have also had to give up my Curves membership since I can no longer get there. Now that both my kids are in school and I have to drive them (they go to a private school and there is no bus service), and, since the school is in the opposite direction of where Curves is, I just can't get there and still have enough time to spend at work. Right now I am researching two gyms that are close to my kids school and will hopefully make a decision in the next week or so on which one I will join. I'm excited at the prospect of having a gym that has classes and a variety of cardio and strength machines, but will miss my Curves workout and all my Curves friends. One of the gyms even has a pool and water aerobics, which sounds like fun. I'll update when I have made my decision! In the mean time I'll do cardio and strength at home using the Wii, some exercise videos and hopefully getting in some walking.
Anyway, time to get back on the right track on my journey...I can't say I'm happy with the little detour I took, but sometimes life just gets in the way of your best intentions and all we can do is move forward.
