Starting Over - For the 100th Time?
Monday, August 01, 2011
Here I go again. I'm restarting my weight loss journey. I fell off the wagon again in July due to a crazy work schedule. I thought work was supposed to be lighter in the summer, especially since my volunteering decreases?? Oh well, whatever. I used it as an excuse and stopped tracking my food. Instead I ate a ton of junk and the scale showed the results this morning. Even though I ran more miles in July than any other month this year, with the exception of Feb (month of my half-marathon), I still gained weight last month. Did I do any strength training? No. Did I log my food? Most days, no. I know what I need to do, so why don't I do it? Why is it so easy to eat sweets and justify it to myself?
I know I am a work in progress and just as God never gives up on us, I'm not giving up on me. So I reset my goals, logged in my food and exercise for the day already (ran 4 miles in the stinkin' heat & humidity) and have been contemplating what changes to make. First stop - to check in with the best team ever on Spark - the FFF ladies!
Oh, my goal for August is to lose 8 pounds. There, it's in writing and out there for every one to see.
