Isn’t it odd how when you’re not on your game that’s when people are complimenting you on your weight loss?? Like I’ve gotten a few compliments this week and it makes me embarassed because I haven’t done anything this week. My eating went to hell. My workouts were non-existent. It really just goes to show how quickly you can fall into the abyss! I didn’t start out last week not planning to workout. I started last week with a pulled muscle or something pretty painful in my back. And then it progressed to not having time, energy, or just that other things were taking precedence over my workout.
Yesterday I was thinking to myself…it’s time to get back on track. I’ve come to far, put into too much work to have nothing to show for it. Yesterday, or this entire weekend rather, was such nice weather. It was in the upper 50s, low 60s and it kinda smacked me upside the head and said to me…you said you were gonna do this, this will give you the results you want, but ONLY if you do it!!! Spring will be here in a about a month’s time. I have enough time to really see some change in time for warmer weather. Today is my OT day…and unfortunately I’m always so crunched for time that I can’t really get a workout in on these mornings. I did wake up earlier and get the kids out earlier today, but I had to stop by Food Lion…usually if I have to stop by the store, it’s not gonna happen. But I’ve decided to re-commit myself to the 30 Day Shred, to getting my Turbo Jams in, even if that means I have to workout at night sometimes, and to sticking to my eating. For me eating is the biggest factor. So I’m determined, I’m re-committed, I’m ready to succeed. I’m basically using the weather as my motivation right now. Because when it gets warmer I’m going to want to be going out more and wearing more things. So it’s like, just do the damn thing already Aria!!! So I’m all over that right now. I wish I was one of those people who just changed my eating and worked out 3 times a week and could lose weight. I wish I didn’t have to start, and start over, and start over again…but this is who I am, and this is how it works for me. I’m striving for success. I’m fed up with the mundane, I’m fed up with the mediocrity. I deserve to enjoy my life and feel good in my body!
