Getting Back To It
Tuesday, January 18, 2011
I've fallen and am working on getting back on the horse. I was struggling before the holidays only to get bronchitis at Thanksgiving. Which slows down my ability to workout. Then add several holiday parties, lack of will power, a birthday, parents in town for two weeks, another chest cold right after NYE; and I'm 20lbs over my lowest maintained weight. Ten of those pounds have been gained over the last three months. Which brought tears of shame to my eyes this morning. On the bright side, I'm still 35 under my highest weight.
So with a little congestion left, I have to slowly build back up my workout plans. But I really need to get a handle on my eating. It's been tough without a job these last several months to keep my esteem high. And when I'm feeling low, I turn to food. Not to mention my love for watching cooking shows and trying the recipes myself... many of which are not particularly healthy for me since I'm a champ at weight gain.
But after stepping on the scale this morning, to make myself accountable, I know I must and I WILL get a handle on this weight gain and reverse it.
