Summer set back- Forward Fall

Monday, August 27, 2012

Summer set me back. Like never before. I was avoiding the scale for weeks but I stepped on it this a.m. and TODAY this trend stops. Iíve gained 10 lbs, gradually, since June. I know it doesnít sound like a lot, but for me it is. I have been maintaining in the 131-134 range for 2 Ĺ years now so 142 is no longer maintenance for me- It is a gain. Not the track I want to be on. I hadnít seen that # since I passed it back in 2009 in the beginning of my journey. Even before the scale confirmed it for me I knew I had gained. My clothes and my reflection were warning me way before. But I ignored it. Denial. I avoided spark and even put my oxygen and runnerís world magazines away when they arrived. Talk about guilt trip. What went wrong? It started with vacations. And just went downhill from there. Inconsistent workouts at much lower intensity. Stopped tracking fitness completely. Complacency. Excuses. Laziness. No goals. Depression. A stupid I-deserve-to-eat-this-I-need-t
o-eat-this attitude. Enough. This fall itís all about miles, minutes and meals. Getting consistent runs in, strength workouts and tracking food. Yep, back to tedious food tracking until I am 10 lbs lighter. I already started. My workout plan is printed. I am not pumped up or super motivated just yet but I donít have to be to start. I just have to start. This fall, I'm moving forward.

    You can do it!

It stinks when the weight starts to creep back on but 10 lbs is something that you can shed rather quickly, especially with the plan that you have in place.
