I'm going to have an incredible year.
Essentially, I took most of the month of December "off." I have read over and over how taking time off from your weight loss journey makes you weak, it will derail you, and you won't be able to capture your mojo again. You know what I say about that? Watch me.
I began the month of December in an awful state. Tears and binges...that can sum it up pretty much. But I went to my doctor and he helped. But honestly, I was so far off the "game" that I knew I wasn't ready to get back to it.
So I didn't.
I still went to the gym semi-regularly. But I didn't track and my eating sure as hell wasn't on plan. But you know what? That's the past. In essesence, I gained 7.2 pounds in the month of December. I'll have to do some work to get that off and the rest of the weight I want gone but that doesn't intimidate me.
I'm in a better place, mentally. I'm more even now. I don't feel full of dispair and helplessness. I feel much stronger. I feel ready to tackle this and every other aspect of my life. I don't feel like I'm putting on a mask for the rest of the world looks like what they want to see. That twinkle in my eye? It's back. My motivation? It's back.
Join me! Do at least one thing today that will get you closer to your long term goal. Today I worked out so far and plan to track my food intake. Let's take the steps we need to to get back to where we want to be!
