Yes, it's true. I suck. Well, at the moment anyway. This winter (which seems to have been going on for at least a year and a half), I came down with a nasty bit of cold or flu and totally fell off of the "eating well" wagon. And I haven't gotten back on. Spring is finally breaking, but I have put on over 15 pounds and haven't been able to put a stop to it. What is preventing me? Well, me. I've been mindlessly eating ever since I was sick. It just felt to nice and easy to not think about what I was eating. I kept telling myself that I knew the tricks to losing weight (no tricks really, just eating well and being active) and I could take off any extra pounds whenever I wanted to. I guess I didn't want it badly enough. Not yet, at least. But, now that I'm getting closer to what was suppose to be THE SUMMER where I finally wear a bikini again, I find that I am even farther from my goal than I was last summer--and it's all my fault. My house is a mess, inside and out. My person is a mess, inside and out. Finally, it's time for some spring cleaning. Well, after Easter left-overs are all gone. I may be regaining my motivation, but I'm not a saint. However, I think that the earlier mornings, warmer days, and longer evenings will make activity easier to come by. Especially if I really do work on cleaning my house! I don't know if I'll make it into a bikini this summer, but I will get back on track and even though it won't be pretty, I am going to enter into my food tracker that I ate two (large) servings of cheesy potatoes and one slice of Easter ham--as a mid-morning snack. And I may have a slice of pie, later. So, for now, I suck. But I think improvement, along with spring, is just around the corner.
