and it's time to tell the ugly truth. I have been avoiding my blog for almost two weeks now.
The ugly truth is that I've gained back 2.8 pounds, I've spent a week and a half shoveling crap into my mouth and I'm a week and a half behind on C25K.
I thought I'd said all the right things, I was only going to have one plate of thanksgiving food, I was going to go easy on the appetizers and choose one desert per family meal. I did okay on Thanksgiving except for the appetizer part. Then came the night of drinking with friends and Black Friday at work with all the yummy things that my co-workers made. Then came a LONG weekend at work with super easy access to fast food. Then came a new work week with added stress and frazzled nerves.
I've been battling with my emotions over food and exercise for nearly two weeks. When I'm stressed I don't go to the gym because I feel like I just want to go home and sleep. I also eat my feelings and avoid healthy food because in the moment fast food feels so much better. The truth is that I have no self control. The truth is that going to the gym and eating the right foods and portions make me feel like a million bucks, but its a self perpetuating cycle. I'm having a difficult time getting out of this one.
Its time to channel my inner Nike Bitch and JUST. DO. IT.
