Hello again everyone. Not in the best of moods today and it's because of a lot of things. The main issue is that the one issue I knew would be the hardest to overcome got the best of me.
I missed my workouts 3 days in a row. Those 3 days were this past weekend. Friday night was one of my good friends birthday get together which I went straight to after work, came home really late, and went to bed because I had to work Saturday. Got home from work Saturday night and instead of catching up on my workouts, I didn't do anything. Same thing happened Sunday. I got up and went to work, then came home, had dinner with my parents, watched the SAG Awards, and went to bed. Sure, I thought about working out and kept telling myself I need to do something, even if it's only a little bit, but I did absolutely nothing. I was so mad at myself for it when I got up this morning.
I knew something like this would happen mainly because of the really bad habit that I've grown up with. Basically, the weekends are a free for all living at home. No one hardly ever cooks and we usually eat something really bad for us like pizza - every. week. I realize that I don't have to avoid bad foods entirely but I'm trying really hard to start a new healthy lifestyle and seem to be seriously struggling with limiting myself to the bad stuff I love so much. It's going to be really tough but I'm still going to work at it as best as I can.
All bad things aside, I kicked my ass (excuse my language) into gear tonight. Made up for the past 3 days and got back on track with the same routine for the week. I remembered that the most important thing is to finish the challenge and finish strong. That's exactly what I'm going to do this week.
One moment of reflection taught me that this really is going to be a long tough road ahead but now I have 3 big events to make sure I'm looking and feeling good for.
1. One of my best friends wedding - May 2013
2. Family vacation to Myrtle Beach - July 2013
3. Other best friends wedding - August 2013
Needless to say it's going to be an interesting summer. The first wedding is going to be the real test but I'm going to get there. I have to keep telling myself that.
