So. I fell off the healthy weight wagon for a while.... And I know no excuses are worth sacrificing my health. . . But let me just do a quick review of the past few months.
I got laid off from my job very unexpectedly ...
Was unemployed for a few months, interviewing and applying to almost every job I could find.
I did get another job, at a great company, and I really love it. Plus the people I work with are pretty great. I've been at this new job for about a month.
THEN, I get a call from a big corporate company I've been trying to get a job at for almost a year, they offer me a job. . .
I can't really pass this up, so I put in my two weeks at my new job I really like to go work at a place I may not like as much but has better pay and benefits.
What does all of this have to do with healthy living you may ask?
When I stress, all I was is sweet bready things. You know, like lemon pound cake, doughnuts, chocolate cake, etc. If it has the consistency of bread and is sweet, I will most likely want to shovel it into my mouth.
So, I would have random good days where I ate very healthy, went to the gym and felt great and accomplished. But the next day would be full of bad food choices and playing Black Ops all day. . .
Kinda taking two steps back for every healthy step forward...
I have the will. I have the ability to make better choices, I know because last summer I almost lost 30 pounds, gained almost all of it back, but I know it's possible.
I have just been so lazy. And I am pretty damn mad at myself for it.
I guess third times the charm. I know I can achieve these goals, I know whats good for me, I have a great workout plan. I've done it once, so why am I stopping myself from doing it again?
So. No more excuses.
If this is the only thing I succeed with int he next 5 years, I am perfectly alright with that. I am no longer going to put anything else in front of my health or allow myself any bull crap excuses.
This is the prime of my life and I plan on enjoying it without all the baggage hanging around my waist.
