I’ll get right on top of that… tomorrow :)

Posted on: August 11, 2011

Okay, so I’m kinda pissed at myself, but I’m really not going to beat myself up too badly… Hard to pick myself up if I’m too busy pushing myself down, right???

Here’s the jist… I had good intentions, I really did. I got back into the gym for a solid week and a half and dropped a little over 5 of the 15 lbs I have managed to pack on over the summer. Not feeling awesome, but to have lost 1/3 of my excess in a week and a half was pretty ego boosting.

HOWEVER, (there’s always a however…) my brother and his girlfriend had some shtuff going on and ended up coming over for the weekend. We ended up letting loose every night and staying up late and eating whatever, whenever we felt and needless to say, I slid right back out of my “health” routine.

But, I rarely get to see them and it always feels like we try to force a month’s worth of time in a few days, so I’m just glad we had fun and a good weekend was had by all.

THEN, the following week (last week) I had a friend in town from out-of-state. Although we have managed to catch up and talk here and there over good old Facebook over the past couple of years, we have not seen each other in ten years. No big story to share here, but basically I was kinda stressed about that and time crunched with other things going on, so I just did not get back into my health routine at all that week, either.

This week the scale showed that I gained back the 5 lbs that I had just lost and it really spiraled me into the WORST mood. At least I didn’t gain more, BUT still… I did expect it, however it didn’t make the blow any easier to swallow. I didn’t feel like swallowing anything after I weighed myself Monday. I just wanted to puke. But, I’m over that now.

This week I’ve been just focusing on my diet and getting it back on track (AGAIN!). I’m feeling better now and a few pounds lighter (likely from less sodium and healthier eating) but I will take it! I’m planning on going to yoga on Saturday morning. My runs will begin (AGAIN!) either this weekend or Monday, for sure.
