After a few rough stops and starts, I think I can say I am finally getting my "Mojo" back. I have not been blogging much because I have been so inconsistent this last few months, but last week I started to feel the groove again, and have managed to track my foods and exercise for the last 5 days. I think I am back in the weigh loss game. I have lost 1 lbs. in the last 5 days, and that is going to work for me. If I can manage a 1 lbs. a week weight lose, I will be content. I imagine when I am able to start running again, things will pick up, but I do not plan to push myself so hard as I did last time. That is part of the reason I hurt myself and burned myself out. I plan to be a pound killer by steady consistent diet and exercise.
It does not hurt any that I have a goal I am working towards. I am going on a 5 day cruise to MEXICO in November with a day in New Orleans before and after. When I told my friend, she said I needed to get a cocktail dress for formal dinners,and I said a cocktail dress, I barely plan to where clothes the entire time I'm on the boat. Now I meant, that I plan to be in a swimsuit the entire time, but it came off totally different and she asked me what the heck kind of cruise am I going on (Carnival, for those interested)
Well That got me realizing, that I don't want to look like an Oscar Myers Wiener on the boat, so I need to buckle down and get my diet and exercise under control. If I lose a pound a week until the trip, that will be a little over 20 lbs and will put back at my lowest weight. Anything extra I lose will just be gravy, well actually gravy is a No-NO, so its more like it will be a lack of gravy!
That's right The "Smart A$$" is back!
