I'm Pleading Temporary Insanity
Friday, September 22, 2017
That's the best way I can describe it. I looked at my July blog before I started this one just to remember what I said. I am still okay with who I am with my likes and dislikes, so I'm not contradicting myself. But somehow I'VE allowed ME to get ME off track. It wasn't the sweet tooth that threw me off - it was the lack of exercise. I've always been diligent about getting it in and once I started slipping and missing, it was easy to keep slipping and missing.
I started out the year with my chart and my stars to give myself credit for doing at least one thing a day toward improving my health. Did okay from Jan - March. And then I (there will be a lot of those in this blog) didn't get around to making the April chart - life got in the way. I made a May chart to get re-motivated, but it never made it to the printer. "And then I" started using whatever excuse I wanted to not exercise. "And then I" started spending too much time on the computer instead of doing things on my "to do list". "And then I" started going out to eat more with friends or the significant other (even though I usually chose from the appetizers for my main meal, but iHop's pancakes get me every time). "And then I" got on the scale this morning and saw a number that was too close to a number I never want to see again and decided that this madness has to stop.
So I started another chart starting today (I usually do them by the month). Not going to wait until October 1 since the weight gain didn't wait until October 1!! It's empty now, but it won't be in 3 weeks!!
P.S. I still love my licorice, circus peanuts, and ice cream treats. I just know that "sweets in" means "sweat out".
Here's to a great day - Be Blessed!
