It started in November, I got the 'official' flu for the first time in my life. For nearly two weeks it hurt to walk from my bedroom to the kitchen. Not exactly how I wanted to lose weight! And I stopped going to the gym, from there it kept snowballing and one thing after another was sabotaging my progress. I gained back all the weight I'd lost plus five pounds.
The gym I go to has a monthly pass that gives you access for 30 days so I rationalized by skipping a month I would have more money for Christmas. And besides, since my grandkids are 1300 miles away I'd be traveling for the holidays and probably wouldn't have time to go there anyway.
I returned home to the sobering news that my company was going through some rough economic times and several key customers canceled services because of the economy. My paychecks were headed for a hit and I couldn't justify the gym expense for one more month.
You see how the excuses keep compounding? I need a kick!
I know I hate being flabby and want to do something about it and more importantly, I know that I need to take control of my health. I just don't know why after two months I still feel so BLAH!
One more thing I know though- that my Sparkfriends will encourage me and support me and give me that kick (lovingly of course)!
