I've been slacking (maybe that's not the right word....pigging out? Letting my emotional rollercoster dictate my eating habits? Lazy???) lately and all those "bad" choices have me going in the wrong direction! Bleck! I had my weigh in today for a competition I'm "doing" (aka: I signed up, paid and then promptly ate myself heavier than when I first started) and I'm up 3lbs. I hadn't weighed in the past couple weeks, but still. FML! I know exactly what I did (or DID NOT do) to gain that weight and I'm really disappointed with myself BUT! Guess what I did afterwards? I went to the grocery store, stocked up on fresh fruits and veggies then had some extra time before my daughter got out of class so I went for a walk/jog. It felt amazing when I was done! I asked my sister today (who's on her own weight loss journey right along side of me and I'm soooooo proud of her!!!! Over 14 lbs down!!!), "Why is it that we KNOW how good it feels after we work out, but it's sooooo much easier to be lazy and not do it? Why do we CHOOSE to not do it?" Ugh! It's so frustrating! But, just gotta keep going one day at a time and it'll get there. Even if it's just 1 mile a day, that's better than sitting on my fat ass doing NOTHING!!!! So that's my goal for this week. AT LEAST 1 mile per day. Whether that be walking or jogging, it doesn't matter. I hope you're all having a great week! My new motto needs to be "CHOICES!" Here we go!

Much love...

I am shocked that my last post was on OCTOBER 3RD!!!! Where does the time go? I'm sitting here in my living room, leg propped up on a pillow, feeling pretty darned sad about life. I have been back in the "weight loss" game for about 2 months now and have YET to get serious about it. And today, just to add to my setbacks, I sprained my ankle. I am so frustrated and mad at myself!

Oh well, pitty party for one? Yes, that's me! I'm here!

All I want to do right now is EAT! I want to eat cookies, candy, popcorn, chips. And in all honesty, I probably will eat some, just not as much as I probably would have if I hadn't just typed this out.

My journey needs to start over but how do you work out with a sprained ankle? How long will it take for me to get "get back on my feet?" Ugh!

My goal this week is to check in here daily and write my thoughts down. Let me know if you're still out there, reading my sob story. I'd love to hear from you. :-)
