Slip Sliding Away
Friday, August 31, 2012
That is my theme song for the past two weeks. I finally got a job! Yay me!
But I have been to and from several interviews and appointments to get everything finalized. That means a lot of driving and a lot of being on the go. I have also had to go to 3 different orientations to get my daughter started at the middle school this year.
She has decided to join the field hockey team this year. Yay her!
so I have also had to do a lot of get her signed up, get her physical, to and from practice.
Getting school supplies, school clothes, physicals, closet and drawer cleaning (a LOT of clothes donated!!). Cleaning, sorting, rearranging and reloading our storage garage. It has been CRAZY for me lately.
These are all excuses I have used in the last two weeks to justify my lack of my daily walking and my crappy eating I have been doing. I just didn't realize that they were only excuses until last night when I was going to bed. I had a disappointing weigh in at my WW meeting last night. I gained 2.2 pounds. OUCH! I talked to my husband about it last night when I got home. He said the same thing that I said above to make me feel better. That's when the little light came on in my head that these were not anything to justify my slipping. They were all just a big bunch of excuses that weren't worth fluff!! I wasn't busy every night. I still had a little bit of down time to myself. I could have gone for a walk a couple of times. I could have kept a tighter, and more honest handle on my eating. (No, I really didn't need to eat those cookies, or twinkies, or devil dogs) The worst of it is, when I looked back at my tracker for the past two weeks a lot of the little side item snacks that I ate, didn't even get tracked. I don't know if I was in the midst of a denial attack or what. But it all ends NOW!!
I have not come this far to quit now! I will not allow myself to backslide into bad habits so easily! I will put up a fight for my freedom over my weight! Tuesday is the first day at my new job, and the first day of school for both kids. I will get back into my healthy habits and I will find a way to make it work with my crazy schedule.
