Right Before My Eyes
Right before my eyes I went from what I would call pretty happy to almost lost. Of course this didn't happen immediately, it's been a few months coming. And right before my eyes I have probably gained 20+ lbs. The equation is simple. More food + less exercise= weight gain. While I have always taken pride in my ability to keep 100+ lbs off for about 5 years, I have had a slip up. A pretty big slip up in my eyes. Yes, I can still fit into most of my clothes, but that's not the the main issue. The main issue is that I feel different. My arms are bigger. My waist is too. And so are my thighs. And emotionally it has just been really hard to get my head back in the game.
But I have got a plan and I am going to work this plan. I did it once 6+ years ago and I can do it again. Part of this plan involves taking a break from boot camp which has been a part of my life for about 2 years now. I haven't been attending as religiously as I once was and I haven't been participating with as much intensity either. I am going to work out on my own again. Working out on my own worked for me in the beginning, I think it can work for me again. I am also going to start running on a regular schedule again, as in training for another 1/2 marathon. While I am still undecided if I will run one in the winter, training will still do me good.
I don't mean to be such a debbie downer, but physically things have just sucked for a while now and I need to make a change.
