Excuses, excuses.

I am the queen of excuses and it needs to stop.

"I can't work out, I'm too busy with school."
"I don't have time to work out today, I need to work on this paper."
"I'll start over again tomorrow."
"This is the last time I'll order Chinese for a long time."
"I've already ruined today, I might as well have a cake!"
"I'll skip Weight Watchers this week, but work really hard and have a good weigh-in next week."

I make these excuses ALL.THE.TIME. It has to stop.

If you want something, you will get it. You will work hard, and you will achieve your goal in time with persistence and dedication-two words I have not had in my vocabulary lately. I have given in to binges, laziness, and excuses. It has to stop.

Last November I got down to 176, my lowest weight in years. This November, I weigh-in at 206. 30 pounds heavier! Today, I hold myself accountable. While I haven't sparked in a long time, I am going back to the basics. I am counting points, drinking lots of water, measuring instead of eyeballing, and making sure I work out at least 4 times a week for 30 minutes at least. I am also going to try and blog daily, or at least a few times a week.

Wish me luck! I'm going on a cruise in May and would like to be anywhere from 150-165 when I leave for my cruise. I am holding myself accountable today and every day, and when I leave for my cruise...I will be one healthy woman! :)

Wish me luck in getting healthy again! :)
