Finding my way back

Friday, August 06, 2010

It's been ages since I've posted anything here.

Since my last post I've started freelancing which means short projects and times of unemployment in between projects. This was not by choice but by necessity. My last freelance project was challenging and very stressful. During that 5 months, I gained 10 additional pounds and nearly reached 150lbs. I worked long days, did my best to eat healthy meals by bringing my lunch, and tried to squeeze in workouts. I found that I could not workout after 8 o'clock at night due to fatigue. I often did not get out of work each night until that hour. So I made it a priority to workout in the mornings but it was not enough.

I found myself stress-eating more and more towards the end of the project and sabotaging all my hard work these last three years.

I'm slowly taking off those extra pounds and using my funemployment time to focus on re-reaching my goals. I plugged in my current weight and height and sadly I'm back in the 'over' category for my BMI. So it's time to get serious... again.

    Funemployment.. hehe! Great way to turn some lemons into lemonade. The good thing about fitness is that there is ebb and flow. I have definitely had times in my life where other things have taken a priority over working out and that's OK... just as long as you make sure you get right back to it when things settle down.

    Welcome back!

    Oh I SOOOOO know what you are talking about. I gained 10 lbs and got sloppy with my workouts. I can barely run 5 miles. I am starting over and over and over all the time. Working nights has caused me to binge and sabatoge my efforts. I am sooo with ya sista. I wish you success always and I know you will get there. The statistics say you will!
