Today I stepped on the scale and I weighed in at 222.8 pounds. Today marked the end of my second week of this session’s boot camp. In the past two weeks, I’ve lost 3.9 pounds. It amazes me how fast I gain weight compared to the rate I lose weight. I guess this is the most discouraging part for me. I’ve worked so hard these past few months only to gain back 13 of those pounds over the holidays is really heart wrenching. It’s like I have some kind of self-destruct button I push the minute things start going well for me.
The first time I hit the self-destruct button, I blamed it on my injuries. How can I be expected to work out when I am injured? And, when I did workout, it was halfhearted. It was very convenient to use my injuries as an excuse to not give it my all.
Next, I hit the “button” when I finished my two weeks on the Paleo diet. I convinced myself that I was depriving myself of so much; I sabotaged everything I did in just a couple of weeks.
Then, the holidays came. Now, who can be expected to eat healthy during the holidays? Party after party with no boundaries what did I expect to happen?
The real issue is that I have run out of excuses and people to listen to them. Guess its time to get off my but and get to it. Who’s with me????
