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.

NOT. COOL.

'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.

NOT. COOL.

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!!

    Yeah I know.

12 lbs up for me in the 2 months that I check out of Spark and into my dark and dreary head.

Not a good place to be alone.

But I'm back and willing to work to get the extra junk out of my trunk...

BTW - you looked fantastic in the wedding pics....

    I convinced that this journey we are all on here is a big curve; first curving one way and the other! Sometimes we just need a break at the bend and stress can sure do it to us. emoticon and you will be ready for that Rugged Maniac!

    Yes! Way to get on track! It's so easy in a nice comfortable relationship to let fitness take a backseat. Good for you for getting active with your man's family and the race coming up should be motivation for him too...keep up the good work--realizing you have slid into not-so-healthy habits...that's good. You can turn it around! emoticon

    We all have these slip ups. The great thing is, it was only a few weeks and only 8 pounds (now 6 since you've taken 2 off already :) ). I'm so glad you are back and motivated! You can do it!
