Momentary lapse in sanity

I have come to realize that my previous goal of losing 30lbs before I turn 30 (in a month now) was a bit crazy.

Losing weight has fallen to the “weighside” (shall we say?) to the upcoming move.

Eating healthy has fallen to the “weighside” of just eating up whatever food I have in my kitchen

Going to the gym has fallen to the “weighside” of running the many house errands and/or coming home to pack and/or REST.

Weekend workouts have fallen to the “weightside” of working at my 2nd job and making extra money to SHOP for the house.

All of this will change.  We get the keys to the house on October 15th.  Life will be a bit chaotic until we get settled and moved in.  As of November 4th (the day after my birthday) I will establish my new regime from the new house.  I will now be cooking for 2 and working out regularly. Blogging will resume (hopefully daily) after that. 

I’m ashamed to admit I have gained almost ALL of the weight I had lost over the years.  My pants don’t fit.  I need my fat clothes back.  I feel like crap about it.  BUT, I won’t let it bring me down. 

I have plans.  Big plans.

I plan to switch from counting points to counting calories… at least giving it a try at first.

I plan to actually complete the couch to 5K finally.

I plan to do yoga in the mornings.

I plan to do 1 or 2 classes a week at the gym.

I plan to feel comfortable in my own skin again.

I plan to fit into my clothes again.

Life happens… and while it’s no excuse to get off track, I can’t let it stop me from getting back on track.

I do hope you’ll continue to follow me and my journey after the move!  Watch for regular posts as of November 1st.  The first post will be devoted to pictures of the new house (and maybe a peek into the fridge… to keep it food oriented!).

Happy Fall everyone!!!

Congrats on the new house - hope you're enjoying your first week of settling in!

Life gets in the way of progress sometimes. Even if you have the best of intentions. The important thing to note is that you've made a plan to get back on track.

Kudos to you, Jen.
