Let's call May the Month of Bad Decisions.
1. I decided that working out wasn't going to happen because I let the Excuse Monster take over. (Too tired, too busy, too apathetic, too much...)
2. I decided to stop tracking nutrition. This is a downward spiral. Not tracking led to not caring, which led to binge-eating. (Even last night!)
3. I decided to avoid the scale completely. Now, I do get that no good can come of daily weigh-ins. But my avoidance was simply to avoid facing the consequences of my poor decisions.
Confession: I gained four pounds in just one month. It's not water weight, friends. It's just plain old extra weight.
I noticed it today at work when I caught my reflection in a window. Like many women, my weight goes right to the hips, and sure enough I saw saddlebags. (Gee, no wonder my jeans felt too tight today.)
All right, so it's a new month. I'm planning to update my goals later. For now, I'm going to get up and change for tae kwon do. The Excuse Monster is whispering, "But you're so tired...it's Friday...stay home and snuggle..."
But I'm not listening!!
