February was going to be my great month that I made out of the 160's after being here for over 8 months playing with the same 5 lbs. Well guess what, I am still playing. I weighed-in last Thursday because once again the roads were awful Wednesday . After nearly being killed going to weigh-in on a snowy day I decided that if the roads are bad I don't go until the next day. Anyway I went Thursday and I was up 2.6 lbs. It was no suprise I knew it was coming after an awful week the previous week with no weigh-in at all. It still hurt and I was still angry with myself because once again I had sabatogged my goal. I know the month is not over but it would mean 5lbs to loss in the next week. Somehow I am not sure it will happen. I am not giving up though.
I know part of my problem is routine. I have been thinking I need to up the anti on my exercise. I have even been thinking about a new exercise routine. I am open to suggestions of DVD's you really like. I will still continue with The Firm but I want to add something to it and replace some of the time on the treadmill.
Journaling has been really bad. Okay I haven't done it for weeks, but today I am back on track and I hope to stay that way. If I would just take a few minutes I know it would make a big difference. I just have to remind myself of the importance of writing everything down.
I am going to try some new recipes as well to add a little variety back into our meals. I am trying to eat less processed foods but I always keep going back to what is easy.
Hopefully I will be able to weigh-in tomorrow and my efforts to get back on track will show. I know that everyday is a new opportunity to be the healthy pearson I know I can be.
