Coming off Vacation
Tuesday, July 17, 2012
This is so hard. After 2 weeks of eating just about whatever I wanted and not really excercising, it's so hard to break the bad eating habits (although I do really look foward to the gym tomorrow).
Life has been stressful in the past week dealing with selling our house. Had to make lots of phone calls and do paperwork last week, plus all the unpacking and laundry from vacation/my brother's wedding . So, there are my EXCUSES for not getting a handle on things sooner. But I know, I could come up with a different excuse not to eat right or excercise everyday...it's time to stop making excuses and get back on track before things really get out of control.
I've gained 5lbs since we left on vacation 2 weeks ago. I tend to hold a lot of water, so I know that after I eat right for a few days, I should probably lose 4 out of 5 of those pounds. That is SO motivating! So I just need to force myself to do the right things for a few days, then the motivation of seeing the weight drop on the scale and my pants fitting better, should help carry me a little further.
I've also still been dealing with knee issues when I do too much, so I'm calling a place my husband's coworker recommended for an exam/rehab. I'm praying that this can all be delt with through strengthening and stretching, and that I haven't done any major permanent damage. I still have so many personal fitness goals to meet. I can't be slowed down by these knees!
