A year goes by quickly...

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

Well it's been nearly a year since my last post and a lot has changed...most of it negative and as a result I fell off the wagon and gained nearly 40 lbs. Personal issues gave me the perfect opportunity to make excuses for my lack of discipline.
How many Mondays passed by where I had planned on starting again and talked myself into waiting another week or convincing myself that I had already blown what's the hurry? Weeks turned into months and the weight crept back on. I stopped cooking...stopped measuring...stopped tracking my food and water and just stopped caring.
Today I logged my food and drank nearly half my water and here I am blogging about it...hoping to get back on track again...losing what I gained over the past year and then continuing on to reach my goal weight.
I hope that by blogging more often I can hold myself accountable and follow through with what has been such a positive influence in my life.
Setbacks can teach lessons...I hope I have learned mine!
