Well, my intention was that this blog was going to be about my running "career", but that's not what's on my mind! Soooooo....instead it will be about what how disgusted I am with myself for falling flat on my face this weekend!

I went away with friends for the weekend (4 couples) with the VERY best of intentions of working on Beach Blanket Bingo and racking up some decent points for my team and staying disciplined for me. Well that didn't last even one night! Spent the weekend eating and drinking until I almost burst. To top it off, I didn't do one single exercise emoticonI got in about 30 minutes of cardio on a beautiful Sunday on the beach playing a game - but that was it.

So I don't even know if this counts as a blog - it's a confession and a vent. Why, why, why do we do these things to ourselves!!!!! I could have just of easily done portion controlled and exhibited the tiniest bit of willpower and still had a great time with good friends. But instead I came back home having had a great time - but who knows how many pounds heavier??

I know, I's a new day...Don't beat yourself up...Just get back at it (and I have), etc. etc. But just when I think I have changed my way of life and beaten those bad habits, they rear their ugly head and let me know they might be in the bottom drawer - but they just can't wait until I open it up again emoticon

Ok - that's it. Venting and self-flogging session is over. Now it's time to look up an inspirational quote to post for BINGO and to get myself going again emoticon

    Beth, I know what you mean. But I know that you have the tools you need to pick yourself up and get going again. I'm glad you had a good time though.

    Beth you got this. You are one of the most inspirational persons on the BC. Are we failures when we enjoy what we eat and drink? I think not, what the heck is food and drink for?
    And as long as we stike a balance then we will be moving foward to our goals. I maintained a 110 lb loss for over ten years by striking a balance. Now Im learning to balance again. Your running seems to be your balance wheel. Keep at it, keep at it.
