So, I am normally a very positive, upbeat person. I can take a lot of things that might look grim to someone and turn it around in a heartbeat. I can't fool myself any longer. I have put on 3lbs in the last 2 months. I haven't been applying myself, like I was before. I was walking here and there, but wasn't going to the gym, the one thing that held me accountable for getting my workout in for the day. I am very disappointed in myself, but plan on turning things around.

I went to the gym for the first time in 3 weeks, and you know what?? I felt AWESOME!! I knew that once I actually got over that hump of stepping inside the Y, that I would feel that power once again! I just had to do it! Here in 10 days, my kids are out of school, and I have to make it a priority to get to that gym, before I even head home. This way, I have energy for the day, don't feel like a lump of poo, and can interact with my kiddos by getting out and doing things during our summer together. I know that they are looking forward to being out, and I have mixed feelings about that. I know that on one hand I won't get any sleep, but on the other, I know that we can do some fun stuff while they are with me! :) I am looking forward to it and dreading it all at once! lol

My friend that I have been going to the gym with since January, well..., we haven't been able to pair up at the gym here lately, and that's why I have failed to put myself first and just go (whether she's there, or not). We actually got to workout today, and it's put us in good spirits, so I know I can do this!!! :)

Thanks for letting me go on about what's going on with me. I am hoping that I get this mess all turned around and start to get back in it 110%! I am ready now...that swimsuit of mine is calling me, and I keep pushing it away. I want to be able to embrace it! :)

Have a fantastic week! Thanks to all of my Spark buddies that keep me in check and give me support and encouragement everyday!!! Love to you all!

    Sometimes I feel the same way... I lose motivation if I don't have a buddy to workout with. But that's why sometimes we just have to get out there and exercise, whether we like it or not! lol
