Chasing after the wagon...

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

Yea, so I fell off the weight-loss-wagon...AGAIN! I didn't think things would be as hard as they've been (or I've made them) these last couple months...

I just got back home this week after 2 weeks out of town for work. This included eating out for at least one meal each day (most of the time, 2), and hotel breakfast every morning (scrambled eggs with cheese, potato pancakes, bagels, etc.). It didn't help that the 2nd week there I got my period, so I was bloated and uncomfortable and eating everything in sight.

When I got home, I jumped on the scale...and was pretty devastated...I had gained more than TEN POUNDS...yep, that puts me only 13 lbs away from being back at my heaviest...and I am terrified! What on earth happened?

I'll tell you what happened: I picked up my entire life and moved across the country, changed careers, have no friends, have no set work schedule (I can come in to the office or work from home however I want), I stopped walking my dog because I don't want to go outside, I have become addicted to Netflix, I spend more hours on the couch/in bed than I do standing upright, I get fast food because it's "easier" than buying things to cook...and the list goes on...

Ok, so now I am just getting more annoyed with myself, and my sweet dog is looking at me because he wants to go for a walk (I can't believe he remember what that is), so I am literally going to finish typing this entry and take my dog for a walk. TO BE CONTINUED...

    Well you laid it all out here - you know exactly what you need to improve on. Start small and don't set overwhelming goals. Walks with your pup are a perfect place to start. Maybe also pick a couple recipes you can make on a Sunday to have throughout the week to help with the nutrition side. Use all the resources Spark has to offer. Even doing one of the short Coach Nicole videos might help you to feel better and get you moving.
