So, I got off the plan a little bit in February. I didn't go completely wild--I still tracked what I ate most days and worked out several times. However, wasn't as diligent as I was in January. I think that's the problem with taking a "break"--one week becomes two, two becomes three, and so on.
There were some long days at work, as I'm still getting adjusted to the new job and settled into my new routine. There were nights that I stayed late, thinking, "Oh, I'll make sure I get out of here on time tomorrow so I can work out." Of course, the next night, there I was again, working until 6 or 6:30 (I can leave at 4!!!). I ran out of the breakfast sandwiches I had been eating, and I slipped back into the bad habit of stopping somewhere for breakfast on the way to work. There were evenings and entire weekends that went by with no true exercise.
I don't want to sound like I'm making excuses. I made these choices myself, and there were many times along the way that I knew I wasn't making the right choice. I own that. It's also up to me to get back on track. I'm lucky that I only gained a pound or two back (it fluctuates, of course).
Look out, March--I'm coming in like a lion, too!
