I'm really letting little small things I got going on allowing me to punk out on my weight loss goals. I am, for real.
Minor problem#1 - I decided to change departments at my job, which now means I will be in training for 4 more weeks. This also means I may or may not work 6 days a week because my old department still needs me to cover some slack that's left over from the regular work week. Mo' money, but my energy level is gone.
Minor problem#2 - I decided to try to go relaxer free for the umpteenth time in this millennium. No real reason NOT to work out, but I have allowed the process to stress me out because I will not be at the maximum level of attractiveness at one point in this journey. (LOL..shallow as hell, but it's the truth)
Minor issue #3 - The leg pain that is now officially gone, but I'm scared it's going to come back. I told myself that I would rest the leg for one good week after the pain magically disappeared then I would utilize the gym membership I paid up for a year. What did I do instead? I got my money back and ordered a Kindle Fire instead. Ain't so much as walked to the corner to pick up my mail. (sigh)
Minor problem #4 - Now this may be a good thing, but the scale is not moving. And I know we all hit a plateau even if I'm no where near my goal weight, but I'm just not feeling this no movement of the needle action.
So.. I said all of that to say this. I was really contemplating giving up on the weight loss thing for the next four weeks and start fresh when I settle into my new job and shift (with sucky hours..but that's neither here nor there). The only reason I'm fighting myself to stick with the healthy eating part, at least, is the guilt and dismay I would feel if I didn't.
I'm still pushing...not as hard as I should...but I'm trying.
