Its True

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

So I started a down spiral after I got home from my vacation. They say you should be less stressed after a vacation...but too many things were waiting for me when I got home to enjoy just coming home. I am taking the stress challenge and nothing prepared me for what was to come. I tried counting, deep breathing, a bath. I just sat there...I didn't overeat...but I also did not move. After skipping 2 days of exercise I felt the rut coming. I felt depressed and decided to come here on Monday. I had already decided not to run, but after 5 minutes on here I got up and ran and started tracking my foods. I did gain 2 pounds while on vacation but when you are staying at family/in-laws houses you don't have much to choose from when it comes to food. I am back in the groove.

I came close today to falling back off though...it was an exciting time. I signed the papers for my new job and I start in 2 weeks. But my husband and mom did not celebrate with me, which kind of bummed me out. I decided though that I am in charge of how I react and not how they react. No excuses... get off the couch and grab your goals!
