One Month and Ready to Re-Ignite

Monday, July 05, 2010

Well, a month ago I was returning from a week-long vacation at the lake with my husband. I was highly motivated and really trusting that I could be successful. I had two really good weeks where I was only off-course once or twice. Then my two week "vacation" started.

"Let's go get drinks and celebrate!"

"Don't worry about dinner - we can just order pizza!"

Three baby showers in five days...complicated in so many ways!

"Liz, I really want you to meet my friend whose husband is also a surgery resident. Please join us for dinner at Los Compadres!"

Well, needless to say, I made a lot of excuses and while I still managed to lose a pound over these two weeks, I wouldn't say that I gained a lot of ground or accomplished many of my goals. So, with that said, I'm ready to get back on a routine tomorrow and go back to strictly recording my calories and planning my meals. I regret letting these two weeks pass by, but I'm also thankful that I had a break from work and was able to connect with friends (new and old), albeit over unhealthy food at times.

I have about six weeks before the regular school year (and regular teaching job) starts, and I know that I can develop healthy habits in that time and gain ground on my weight loss goals.
