Structure is so very needed right now

Tuesday, March 06, 2012

Today is March 6th, and I'm 1 month and 6 days into my latest weight loss effort. Last month was awesome, and I honestly did better than I expected with drinking water, eating better (not always good, but better), tracking, walking/running, and generally making an effort.

Enter March. Totally fell apart after two days. I can't believe I stopped tracking my food, barely got in any water, and who knows what I was doing for 3 days. I know I was busy, running errands, cleaning, and trying to make a dent in my to-do list (news flash: it never ends).

But guess what? Today is March 6th, and I'm 1 month and 6 days into my weight loss effort. Those three days will not be the end of me, and acknowledging, and stopping the slide means that I will have a better month ahead. I've got a full schedule this month, starting with the Shamrock Run on Sunday (yay!), followed by four days out of town for training, then one week until my firstborn's wedding, then ANOTHER week of training. But for every one of those days, I will make an honest effort to stay on track and maybe see my body, and the scale, respond. I will utilize the tools and resources that are available to me, of which there are many. I will not shortchange my cutie puppy - he needs his exercise just like I do, even if I have to take him home and go back out for extra time.

This is all about making positive changes, and there won't be any if I don't put in the work.
