I sure wish I could tell you that my life lately has been all sunshine and roses. I can’t.
I wish I could tell you that I have made great choices and am on the road back to health again. I can’t.
I sure wish I could tell you that I have been back to Crossfit and I am back to a good workout routine. I can’t.
But…before you go all, “Great…another Debbie Downer post”…Hang in there with me!
You see, I am going to turn this around. I think I have finally reached the point of disgust. I think sometimes we have to reach that point before we will do anything different. I don’t feel good. In fact, I feel fat. I asked my sister today how she was doing and she said, “Good, how are you?” Well, I didn’t give her any BS. I said, “Fat and Busy.” Which is exactly how I fell. Fat and busy. And frankly, sick of it. Sick of being so busy that I don’t take time for myself. Sick of being so busy that I don’t make time to talk to YOU. Sick of being so busy that life is passing by me so fast. Sick and Fat and Busy.
So, something has to give. I have to start changing some things or this cycle is going to continue. Time to pick myself up by the boot straps and get my shiat together. So…I am going to use my own advice and start small, set some small goals for myself, reward myself and move the heck on past this true rut I have somehow managed to get myself in.
I gained weight this week at Weight Watchers.
The sad thing is, I didn’t even look to see how much I gained until just now. It’s not that I didn’t care but I knew it was a gain, I knew I had hit the 190′s again and I knew why. Too much Halloween candy and too much crap and not enough exercise. Oh…and my sweet tooth has been out of control!
So, time to get a move on. Starting tomorrow morning, Friday, November 15, I am going to track. From tomorrow until next Friday, I am going to track 5 out of 7 days. Start small…start somewhere…just start. I also want to go back to Crossfit. I have been avoiding it for reasons that I don’t need to go into here (not really even weight related) and it is time to make time and go. I know I can go at least twice next week and I need to MAKE time to go and workout.
Another thing I need to do is register for the Gobble Jog. My husband and I have done this race for the past like 5 years. This year, we were going to skip it. We haven’t trained and I just wasn’t “feeling it.” Well…I decided that I NEED to do it. Even if I just walk it (which is totally do-able), I need to continue on with the one healthy thing about Thanksgiving. So, this weekend, we will go ahead and register for the 5k.
Now, I need to give myself some incentives if I do these things. So…I am going to reward myself if I track 5 days next week, go back to Crossfit and register for the Gobble Jog. If I do all of those things, I am going to go buy myself something fun. I don’t really ever spend money on myself so walking into TJ Maxx or Marshalls and buying something totally frivolous is just what I should do to reward myself!
Sorry it has taken me about a week to check in. It is really crazy how fast life is going by. How are you all doing? I hope you are doing better than I am but if not, set a few small, attainable goals and reward yourself when you meet those goals.
What are three small goals you will work on this week?
Hopefully I will be back soon where life IS sunshine and roses.
