Vacation So Wonderful, So... ugh.

Thursday, June 13, 2013

So we've been back from Disney World for a month now. In this past month, I have done NOTHING. Literally, NOTHING. I have not had any energy or motivation. I have been a couch potato. We pigged out on vacation because we had the dining plan so it was all paid for... and unfortunately we didn't turn off "vacation mode eating" when we got home. I have been a bottomless pit. I have gained 8 lbs back since the day we left for our vacation on May 3rd.

And I can feel it. I feel awful. Constant indigestion and bloating. I can't fit into the shorts I bought for my vacation. My face is swollen and I have 2 chins again.

Amazing what 8 lbs will do to you.

I haven't been to a single dance fitness class since we returned and my instructor has been persistent in getting me to go back.

So I am. Tonight. And I know I am going to die. It's been over a month since I last went.

I did take my son for a 1.5 mile walk today. Sadly, it was only because he wanted to go..not because I wanted to do it. But I can't tell the little guy "Mommy is too lazy to do it". So we went, and it about killed me.

Tonight is going to kill me. But I HAVE. TO. DO. SOMETHING. I can't take this feeling anymore...

    I know exactly what you mean! I have been off track since about October when my life started to get really really busy. Luckily in that time I have only gained back about 4 pounds, but boy does it feel like a lot. Keep pushing!

    I agree with the previous comments, we've all been there, done that. Get back on track and the weight should leave fairly soon. Consider it a lesson learned.

    As said before, we've ALL been there. We've all been in the slump and not known how to get out of it...but gosh, you got a powerful gift, you're son gotcha ;) You can do this. Feel bad for you that you're getting whammed w/ two workouts in one day...but hopefully it gives you a burst of that old feeling remembering how good it feels to do something good for you...and not only for you...but for the ones you *love*. Hang in there. You're going to make it! Cheering for you! emoticon

    You will feel better once you get started on it. Start making the food choices you know you need to make right now and those 8 lbs will be gone before you know it. Remember how good you felt when you were active and healthy. emoticon emoticon

    Great instructor you have, to push you like that. It could be just the thing you need to get your mojo back. Good luck!

    We've all been there. Better a month than several years.
