I have really been slacking off. It started about a month ago when I had problems with my daughter, and her breaking up with her boyfriend just before prom, she was very upset, and it upset her school work, and work work, other daughter wanting to move, just lots of emotional stuff, too much to list, and I made up excuses not to stay on track.
At first it was just the workouts, but I was still maintaining good healthy eating habits. Than little by little the eating started to not be so healthy, A few things here and there, and I'd get on the scale the next day and not see a change so I'd say well Ok I didn't completely sabatog myself, but that would just give me an excuse to do it again the next day. Before I knew it, I was eating whatever.
That brings us to this weekend, well, Thursday of last week, totally overboard I went because my excuse was it was my birthday and I am going to eat whatever I want, and I did. First Beer, Potato chips, Cake, and I went to KFC, and ordered 2 snackers, fried, bread, dressing, I told myself I would only eat one, but I didn't, then that night, Macaroni salad, Potato salad, The whole weekend, I was out of control, I ate everything, cheeses, supprasatta, pepperoni, Hamburger with swiss cheese, hot dog, and the buns to go with them, then came the ice cream to go with it for dessert when I got home, and even cake with the ice cream.
In the mean time, all weekend everyone was telling me how good I looked, and that made me eat more thinking I haven't done anything for a month and I'm still getting compliments, but the clincher was my husband saying how proud of me he was because I've been really trying, I've been working out, and I look awesome.
I felt so guilty, he didn't know, because of his work schedule, that I had stopped everything. I thought about it all night, I can't believe I threw it all down the drain, what was I doing. So this morning, I got on this computer, logged onto this sight, and said to myself I'm goanna do it. I logged in my breakfast, and went to my fitness page and did my first workout in over a month. I feel so great.
The reason why I'm posting this blog is to just let everyone out there who gave up, or is thinking of giving up, because they haven't been following there plan, it's not to late, It's never too late to get healthy.
I'm back on track and I'm hoping to stay there. I have more motivation, because of everything everyone was saying to me and knowing I wasn't on track at all, to stay on track. And to finish what I started, and to stay healthy for the rest of my life.
You can do it, we all can do it, even if you fall off track sometimes it's never too late to get back and start running again, even if it's just little things, start with the eating, take a walk, It really feels wonderful.
I almost feel like I never stopped, I'm gonna feel it tomorrow, because of my workout today but I'm so proud of myself for getting back on track!!!!!
The one piece of advice I have is to do it for you, not for others, I thought I was doing it for my husband, and everyone around me that knew me when I was thin, but this morning I realized that I was jipping myself out of a healthy life, and That's just stupid!!!!!!
