"A year from now you'll be glad you didn't quit!"

Tuesday, February 07, 2012

Well, I'm not proud of how I've been doing. I am unfortunately an "all or nothing" type of person at times. And when I took a break on my workouts because I hurt my leg, I unfortunately started eating (and drinking) everything in sight. It doesn't help that with all the calling, emailing, and interviewing I've been doing in getting a contract finalized in Virginia for work, I've been stressed and excited out of my mind, both of which make me eat, lol! I've always been good on my diet since I started, but the days going over my range started growing, and now suddenly I am looking back and seeing days of calories at 2,500 when my limit is 1400! So far I have only gained about a pound, thank god. But dammit, that was one pound I fought hard to lose! No more nonsense! Got to get back in the game! Went for a short, brisk walk last night... going out for lunch with my brother today and determining NOW that I WILL stick to healthy eating! Also deciding NOW that I will get a good workout in tonight!

My chant for today:

"A year from now you'll be glad you didn't quit!"

    A lot can happen in a year for sure. Stick with your goals and find some distractions so can break your habit of eating when you are busy or stressed. I chew sugar free gum to help with my sweet tooth urges and drink tons of water. In fact I never drink my calories. emoticon

    The title grabs my attention. That's absolutely right. If we could imagine how great we'll look like a year from now, we'd be grateful for NOT quitting. Forgot about the pound you gained & get back to the race. emoticon

    Enjoy the time you're working out so that it doesn't become boring + it'll release you from the stresses you're facing at work emoticon

    It's hard having a healthy lifestyle, the overweight me would much rather eat chocolate and cake than vegetables. But the inner skinny me knows that I have to work hard to get what I want.
    Glad to hear you're back on track!
