I Gotta Get Back In The Zone

Thursday, June 26, 2008

It's been over 2 months since I last blogged. It's something I just don't like doing, but thought it was time to do it again.
I've had a hard time getting back with the program, & I've gained back 5 lbs. For some reason, I seem to be in a depression that I can't shake. I have a doctor appt. next week, & think I'll discuss it with her. Anyhow--I have GOT to start doing better, cause I have a really big trip coming up. I'm going to Israel & Egypt in February, & it's going to be an active vacation. There will be lots of walking, & sightseeing. One of the places we're going to (Mt. Sinai) has 4,000 steps! I'm sure there's another way up the mountain, but I don't think there's an elevator to get ya to the top! LOL! So I have to get back to the gym & work out...& lose, at least, another 25 lbs. I had done so well, up until now, with SP. I just can't figure out why I sabotage myself, when I've been so proud of what I've accomplished. If I could figure out how my brain works, all the rest would be easy peasy. I need my motivation back!!

    I'm a bit late reading this - June, I'm right there with you. I did get back on track, and lost 7 of the 10 lbs that I had just gained back but I'm having trouble staying focused. I know we can do this! WE are strong, beautiful, and smart women that know what we want, we WANT to be healthy and thin...WE can make that happen!

    I want to take that trip you will be going on. You are going to have so much fun, great reason to get up and start moving. Let's kick some bootay! emoticon

    June, you are SO not alone in the self-sabotage. I do it, other SP friends are struggling too - it seems to be a pattern. You are so right - if we could only figure out how our brains work we'd have it licked.

    But you have done SO much up til now to be proud of! Sometimes I think if we can just ride out the lows, we're ok. You're still here and that's a sign that you want to get it back together - good for you!

    Hope the Dr appt goes well - keep us posted. Jean

    I've never been to the mid-east or Africa but I hear Egypt is really cool, all the history in that part of the world is amazing. You can do anything you put your mind to and just know we are all here for you.

    Wow, it's been so long since you blogged that when I got the email notification saying you'd blogged, I was like, huh? :-) You can do this, June....25 pounds by February is totally do-able!! That gives you 31 weeks to do it, which averages out to only 0.806 pounds per week! Easy peasy, as you said! And to your doc about the depression. The winter blues is one thing, but it's summer, Woman, and you should be grinning from ear to ear!
