Starting over

Friday, May 20, 2011

I've been lazy, I've been eating out when i should have been at home cooking. I've been drinking iced coffee instead of water, and it shows. I've been Facebooking when I should have been exercising.
I'm not saying I can get things back to good again overnight, but I am saying I'm ready to start over and regain all my healthy habits.
It's scary that it only took a little over a month to let everything spiral out of control. I slowly stopped exercising which of course stopped weight loss and I didn't change my eating habits which caused weight gain. Then I started eating extra. The first five pounds were easily shrugged off as water weight or TOM (sorry guys) but when I stepped on the scale again I couldnt believe what I had done. TEN POUNDS, TEN POUNDS I had worked so hard to be rid of were back. what is even more crazy is I managed to do this at the same time I started a healthy eating blog. Here I am trying to be inspiring and I cant even get it together for myself.
I have been slowly working in exercise in again and cooking more again, but yesterday i had my husband take a picture of me doing a plank for my blog and I couldn't believe how fat (for lack of a better/nicer word)I looked. I posted the picture anyways because I'm not trying to hide anything. I've been eating bad/too much and not exercising like I should.
after seeing that picture I was determined today that I was going to get it right. I exercised I ate a healthy breakfast and lunch, then stress got in my way. My DH came home early and let me know he had lost his regular day job before he went out to take care of the lawns we mow. as soon as he drove off i took the kids inside and had donuts with them (two) Now I dont want dinner and I feel guilty. I wont let this stop me though I will get up and exercise again in the morning and continue trying to regain my SPARK. I did it before I can do it again.
Feel free to follow me as I work towards my goals by reading my blog at www.withasideofbrownies.wordpr

    How human we all are.. The weekend Spark Diary had some advice I found useful, maybe you will too:

    Don't wait until tomorrow, next week, or next month to get back on track - start today. Put your mistakes behind you into the past and move forward. Even the most successful people in the world make mistakes!

    All the very best for the future in all aspects of your life!.
