Taking a Week Off - NOT a Good Idea
Wednesday, December 28, 2011
I took this past week off from my diet... was just finding it hard to keep up with it while the kids are home for Christmas break - WOW!!! So NOT a good idea! In a week, I've gained 4lbs back and some inches. I thought I could control things - with a little moderation... but the fact is... without Sparkpeople... I'm lost!!!!
I'm not angry with myself for doing it... but I'm definitely disappointed. Just proved to myself that this MUST be a LIFE STYLE CHANGE... NOT a "joy ride"!
The sad thing is, that the kids keep asking, "Mom, are you still on your diet?"
I'd answer, "Yeah." But inside I felt like I was lying... guess I kind of was.
[Note to self: When the kids ask, "Mom, are you still on your diet?" this indicates a HUGE RED FLAG that I'm getting off track!]
My husband still isn't too supportive... I almost feel that he looks at it like "well, she's done this before." He probably should be the one I look to for the support and encouragement... but I'm thinking that the kids are much better in this area. I've given up "fretting" over him... but I also lost focus of what I am trying to accomplish here! So... my week of ho-humming around is OVER!!!
Sparkpeople... HERE I COME!!! Treadmill... I'm THERE!!! Dumbbells... GET READY!!!
