Wow! Four months after my last blog entry, I see little progress, mainly due to little effort. I have decreased a couple of my measurements by an inch or two, probably because I have more overall activity in my day to day life. The numbers on the scale are merciless, though, and I have gained a pound.
So much has happened in the last few months: Christmas came and went with all its accompanying parties, I moved, I started my job in a new location (same company and position, different team), I rekindled an old relationship, I had a breast cancer scare (I don't have it, but had to get tested after finding lumps), and I was diagnosed with exercise-induced asthma, leaving me with a cough and cold-like symptoms for weeks after a single strenuous workout. So many reasons for excuses.
Time once again to stop saying "I need to..." And time to start doing. Today is almost over, really too late to undo the poor choices I have made. Tomorrow I will start tracking again. Tomorrow I will get back to choosing better options. For now I will be encouraged that my complacency is ending, and thankful that I will start learning to work within stressors instead of using them as excuses to misbehave with food.
