When Enough Is Enough
Wednesday, November 06, 2013
Sometimes we crash and burn. It sucks, but is usually inevitable.
I stressed so hard about fitting into that bridesmaid dress that, after the wedding, I let it all go. I didn't exercise for two weeks. I ate whatever I wanted.
How did that go for me, you ask? Well, I gained about 8 pounds.
'A' and I need to get our derrieres in gear for the Rugged Maniac 5k Obstacle Race in two weeks, but we haven't even really started. We've been eating out and lounging around when we should be cooking our own dinners and being active at night.
I flat out told him last night that I needed to stop. He commented about how he hadn't gained any weight this weekend. Jerk. I gained three pounds.
Last night, I cooked my healthy dinner: chicken breast with steamed veggies. And I went for a 3.5 mile walk/jog with 'A's mom and sisters. It felt good.
Two pounds down of that three I gained.
I need to continue this. I can't let myself fall back into my old ways. Finding the motivation again, which is great on so many levels.
I am excited for dinner again tonight. Gonna throw in a DVD workout, possibly a jog.
Enough is enough.
This gal is BACK!!
