I woke up this morning determined to get my head back in the game on the diet front. At weigh-in yesterday, I lost 2 of the 4lbs gained during my “not so little” 2 week (now running into 4 weeks) food splurge. Putting myself in a food coma was such a bad idea. Don’t get me wrong, the food was damn good going down and my taste buds were very happy. The hips, however? They don’t lie! The hips cousins (butt and gutt)? They also join in on the fun with all the honesty they are banding about.
Let me tell you…… it is not easy getting back on track. I think I need to keep reminding myself of my target date ( May 31, 2017). I was so confident that I could just get back into it without any problems. Boy was I wrong. The last 2 weeks have been a bit of a challenge. I was constantly picking and have been eating way too late.
This morning? This morning I woke up with renewed resolve to get my head back in the game. I am immensely proud of how far I have come so far but if I intend to make my target (and yes…. I certainly intend), then I need to get back to eating the right foods. If only exercise alone could be it, I would have an a-star! Nope, food plays the biggest role in this journey of mine.
Yup. I most certainly do. I will get to the end of May looking all fly and strutting my stuff in summer clothes! A friend, who is also on her very own journey, has promised me she will be strutting her stuff in a hot pants this summer! You know who you are (imagine the wink wink and smirk here). No hot pants for me, but I can’t wait to get rid of all my loose all back clothes of yesteryear (not so far in the distant past).
Here’s to a great weekend and week ahead.
