Good afternoon everyone! Well a crazy weekend has past! Daughter had a dance competition and that kept us busy. I just started getting back into this blog of mine, trying not to put it on the back burner again and of course I am continuing on with my battle of the bulge.
Currently what is new with this forever long journey of mine? Well, I am participating in a weight loss challenge that is being held at the gym. I am approaching it differently this time. I am not setting any crazy goals. The weight loss challenge I did last summer was not great. I set goals and said they were realistic but they weren’t. I have always been that person that totally thinks a person can lose 25 pds in a week. I mean why not? That seems realistic right? Well I know better now but my insane prior thought process is why I am where I am today. I have made progress with my whole “diet issues” thing. I just want this weight loss challenge to help me keep moving forward. I’m looking for progress plain and simple. Accountability helps me do that. A bad week or good week, it keeps me going.
So lets go ahead and discuss the reason for me calling this blog “reset and recover”? As I mentioned earlier, my daughter had a dance competition over the weekend. These things go all day!! You are already figuring out where I am going right? Two steps forward and three steps back. I had been doing really good and I was dropping a reasonable amount of weight. As usual I decided to screw up all success and not plan things out well. I mean I did plan but my plan was shit eating! So at weigh-in yesterday I wasn’t surprised to find out that I had a gain. I kinda tried to pretend that I didn’t know why I had screwed up!!! Even more pathetic is that I actually tried, for about 30 seconds, to convince Tony that I was shocked and had no idea what happened! Bailey didn’t even try and help me out!!! He finally asked me if I was done and then he told me exactly what I did!!! This isn’t exact wording but close – so what you’re saying is you didn’t plan, calories were low but what you ate was shit, you drank soda, no water and had a lot of coffee? Yes was all I could say. Bailey didn’t say anything but her silence could basically be interpreted as – yeah, what he said! I’ve asked for Tony’s help and Bailey encourages me everyday, so reset and recover! #riseabove
