Oops....disappeared for, oh....6 months?

Friday, March 08, 2013


I admit, it was liberating to reach my goal weight and for ONCE in my life NOT be thinking about my weight 24/7.

But, I guess I got a little too lax. I'm back up to 160 lbs, or 15 up from my goal weight. I feel frustrated with myself, and a bit of a failure.

It's all food, too, as my class load has stayed pretty much the same.

So the past 6 months, I have realized that gluten is my nemesis. I know this, and yet d@mn me if it's not HARD to stay away from it. I've been venturing into Paleo, and am very happy with it for the most part, but find I'm relying on the "pleasure" food too often (nuts, fruit, dark chocolate). *sigh*

This truly IS a lifelong battle.

So, after this weekend, I am starting with a fresh new plan. I'm going to focus intently on my eating. I am going to do better than running just once every two weeks. I'm going to work Body Pump (though I really do detest it) into my routine.

I'm turning 40 in 10 months (egads) and going to the Bahamas in one year (March 11, 2014) and by god, i WILL be rocking a fierce body, and not flabby!

    Absolutely, this is a lifelong battle. But you can win it!

    CECE! I've missed you and your blogs. They are so honest and often mirror my own ups and downs.

    It took me from Jan 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012 to lose 10 pounds. And frankly, it took a raging two week flu to put me there (I do NOT recommend that). Then, I went on vacation...and gained TWELVE! Argh!

    Life is all about balance and I'm struggling to keep things in perspective and not let a number on the scale dictate my mood. (hahaha, I just typed "moo"....ummmm..yup)

    We know what to do, it just gets monotonous implementing it day after day after day after day....

    I'm wishing I could do paleo/primal too. I think it would be the best diet for me but I can't seem to get into it the way I want to. Good luck getting back on plan.

    Hey there! Glad to see you back here on SP! With the plan you have in place, I'm sure you will drop those 15 pounds very soon. Keep focused, keep fighting.
