Honesty is the best policy

Sunday, July 17, 2016

Its been a LONG time! I'm here because I need to start being accountable to myself.

I looked in the mirror yesterday, and I truly did not recognize myself. I am at the highest weight I think ive ever been (well at least that i've seen on the scale). I ONLY wear stretchy pants, and even some of those are too tight now. EEK!

I havent been consistent with exercise in months, I go to fast food almost daily and have been drinking almost daily as well. Just all bad news! (I promised to be honest LOL)

But today, I need to do something about it all. I have chosen to go back on The South Beach Diet. I did it in the past, and it worked really well for me. I do better on low carb honestly. And having a diet "plan" is so much easier for me then just being left to my own devices and just choosing any food and staying in a range. (thats what i've been attempting all this time!)

Tomorrow I will start back on exercise. It wont be easy, but I know from experience that I have better success when I do diet AND exercise.

Thankfully getting my water in has NEVER been an issue..one less thing to worry about :)

Heres to (hopefully) day one!

    Ok, how come this never came through my email!! You know I always want to read your blogs and support my Vegas buddy!!! Didn't realize you were struggling, but, glad you're back at it again. Keep it up and you'll get there. Also, never knew you did the South beach diet. Never tried that one before. I'm back at weight watchers. Need to refocus starting this week.

    What ever happened to you doing the bikini competition?

    You seem to do well with personal trainers, too.

    Stay focused and loose the stretch pants emoticon

    Honesty (to yourself) is always a great step...

    My absolute "key" is to remember that every day is a new day. There's no "starting over," "starting again," or even just "starting." It's just "today," and we can do whatever we want with it. Never wait until tomorrow, Monday, or the 1st of the month. Start doing something NOW.

    Best of luck...
