Frustrated AGAIN!

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

Ok - so I did a lot more work last week and was careful with my eating (mostly). And yet, even after all that, I still gained. I hope it's just the fact that TOM is planning to visit soon. This really isn't helping me toward my goal of losing 20 lbs by mid July.

Tonight I did my walk/run workout with my daughter. I've been putting it off, but I decided I needed to work even harder to get this weight off. Apparently, I am just not working hard enough. I've also been being careful of what I eat.

Anyway, like I said, I went and did my walk/run. I thought I was going to die, and honestly, if my daughter hadn't been with me encouraging me to keep going, I probably would have quit. I'm not kidding. I have fallen that far behind. I basically started this particular section over again. I'm sure I'll do better next time.

By this time next week, hopefully this will all have been a dream, and I'll be back to my old self. LOL

Something I've started to do again is to write. I've been writing every night (give or take a couple of days) for at least 1/2 hour. I've been surprised to see what I end up writing. Some nights it's poetry. Others it's just me rambling on about what's going on. The nice thing is that I feel more like writing these days - which is good since I eventually want to be a published author. In order to do that I, of course, need to write. Eventually, I hope this will become a habit that I will end up writing even longer times without having to force myself to do it.

Anyway, that's what's going on with me.

Until Next Time,

    Keep writing!! You'll get into a great habit!!

    Don't worry the weight will come off. Just keep doing what's healthy and it will come down. As you know, you'd hate to eat a crazy amount of extra calories (like 10,000) to gain 3 pounds. And that's with no exercise.

    Have in there!!!!

    Keep moving! It may be TOM clutching your ankles trying to hold you back, the blessings of being women huh? LOL as long as you don't give up and park yourself with a bag of chips and carton of ice cream you'll get to where you're going. Keep up the good work!
    I enjoy writing too, usually it's my journal and it's reflections, sometimes angry or sad or happy or random but it always makes me feel good.
