It's been a long time coming...

Thursday, January 10, 2013

I've backtracked...badly. Looking at my page, I noticed I'm back to the same weight I was last February. That is NOT the direction I want to be going! I've got nobody but myself to blame, I know. I've let my eating get out of control and workouts were nonexistent.

It's time for all that to change. I don't ever want to be where i was before. I never want to rationalize a gain. I want to be pissed off that I'm allowing myself to fail. That fires me up and keeps my butt on track for success.

I started the January Jumpstart Bootcamp Monday. It's effectively kicking my butt. lol My calves are on fire, woke up with a Charlie horse yesterday morning, my triceps are aching today, and I gladly welcome every single ache and pain. I'm taking it with a smile on my face because I know I've earned every ache. I've worked for every pain. And I'm SOOOO looking forward to the day when I can do the exact same workouts, and more, and feel nothing but a sense of accomplishment....well, and sweaty.Very sweaty lol.

So yes, it's been a long time coming but I think the day is finally here. I'm refocused and found a little motivation again. NOW is the time for me to succeed again. And I will.

    I hear you! I feel the same way. I keep coming back to the same weight I started from, but I think I need to focus more on being healthy and not on the scale. Thus, the January Jumpstart challenge. I am so happy for you that you're sticking with it despite the sore muscles! By day 3, muscles were aching for me that I didn't even know I had!

Stick with it! Don't be mad at yourself for backsliding; just keep moving forward! You are awesome! emoticon
