Good morning friends. I hope that you all had a nice holiday and stayed out of the jellybeans/peeps/chocolates except for maybe a piece or two. I had a bad weekend again and it fell through til Monday. I am still picking myself back up and trying, so I am not down and out and that is more than I have been able to say in the past. I am not going to go back to that weight again and I am not going back to that way of eating again. I need to remember how horrible I feel in the long run when I head down this path. It is funny cuz I see it and think it, but it overcomes anyhow. I try anyhow. So, I am back on track for a couple of days now. I am happy that I will resume my Zumba classes, which will help and yesterday I pulled my good friend Bob out and worked out with him....whew...it has been several weeks since I had hurt my shoulder....I felt a little sick about 40 minutes in and had a hard time keeping that minute long Sumo Squat going, but I did the whole thing...today I am sore, but I am not missing Zumba LOL.
Update on daughter, we decided against the competition and I took some great advice about giving her a reward to look forward to. She is starting that today. She is working on incorporating one healthy habit a week for the next five weeks. Each week she can earn some money to take with her to NYC on top of the money we already gave her for Easter/Christmas since she has known about this trip for awhile.
As for me, I decided to start a friendly Biggest Loser competetion. . I don't even care if I win, I feel completely awesome about motivating other people to make a change in their lives. I am going to be posting articles each day for them and then some quotes. I am also going to plan a weekly walk somewhere that anyone of them can join me. I think that will be fun to meet up and chat about our weeks if anyone is up for it.
So, I will just keep going along and figuring this all out. I have thought about how this struggle with food has been with me for pretty much my entire life and isn't going to go away overnight, so there is no reason to beat myself up for bumps in the road I am bound to hit. I am going for a streak on my binge free life.....two days in and hopefully many more to come.
Have a great day!
