So sorry for the long silences on here, fellow yo-yos. The last few weeks I’ve been in a state of self-indulgence: eating what I want, drinking what I want, reading what I want, and just enjoying time to breathe.
After spending three months working two full-time jobs (simultaneously), I went a little crazy with the new-found freedom. I caught up on a lot of sleep …and let myself eat way too much. So much for getting back on track!
I’m currently sitting around 131-133, which is heartbreaking, as I was down to 123 back in June.
Fortunately, every day is a new day. For the past week, I’ve been participating in the Holiday Hottie Challenge with Fitz Koehler. While I’ve been bad on my diet, I have been working out almost daily for the last six weeks. I am definitely stronger, despite the extra little chub around my middle.
Fortunately, I’m still wearing size four jeans, but I can definitely see the pudge/softness around my tummy growing that was *almost* gone during the summer.
A good friend of mine is getting married in March and she’s asked me to help her get in the best shape of her life. I LOVE having a goal, and I really feel that her request is going to be the incentive I need to jump start my own diet (and stay accountable).
I’ll be training with her 3-4 days per week, and if she doesn’t see MY body improving, how can she trust me with hers?
That’s going to be motivation for me to stick to my original paleo/low-carb diet that worked well for me before I got lazy.
I’ll try to post here more frequently to hold myself accountable. Maybe I’ll go back to posting my food log to really help me stay focused! I don’t want to share with the world a binge on chocolates, so perhaps sharing my food diary here will be a good incentive to stay diligent with my eating habits.
Wish me luck!
