Trying something different

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

After running the 7k last week I did in fact pick up a little bit of a cold. Not horrible but it was one where moving made me cough, thinking about moving made me cough. I took it easy last week and held back on working out. I didn't want to make myself even more sick. Sadly, I let my eating get a little out of control not alot but not to much. Still I need to work on being better.
It's just hard when you get back to back sick. It's not an excuse but sometimes I just feel so icky that I don't want to go through the hassle of trying to cook something smart and sensable. I m going to try and work to be better at it. I know I can I just need to figure this food thing out better.
So because of this I decided something I haven't done here before. I joined a challenge. It's sort of a spring into summer challenge. I have signed up before for these things but always give up on them before even trying. Not this time, this time I have posted my weight, set my goals. I actively look at the boards each day and think about what I am going to need to do. I'll admit it's sort of scary cause these people are depending on me. I feel like as of late I've sort of stalled weight loss wise. I just don't want to let them down, they all seem so nice and I worry that my stall will work against them, or worse they might get mad. I know, I know that point is I'm trying and all that but it's sort of nerve racking. Hopefully though with this challenge cause it's having me do some things differently maybe it will jump start the weight loss.
That's my something different, this is me moving outside my comfort zone and into the unknown. I want to stick to this so badly, not just for me but because there are now other people involved.

    Congratulations on stepping out of your comfort zone and joining a challenge. I don't know the "nice people" in your challenge group but I can take a stab in the dark and guess they've all been in your shoes at some point! To slip up is human. Study after study proves people are more successful at weight loss when they have a buddy or someone holding them accountable. Don't beat yourself up over the temporary setback. Good luck with your challenge!
