Guys, it's happening.
The thing that I thought would never happen, is happening.
I am within 15 lbs. of my goal.
I am fitting into most of my old clothes.
And I am getting complacent.
Not that I haven't given myself allowances before, but I was at my goal weight before.
Now, I am not.
I am 15 lbs from my goal weight.
Which is still about 20 lbs. higher than any of the 6 ft. 2 America's Next Top Model contestants.
But I have been watching The Biggest Loser...
And being thankful that I am only 15 lbs. away from my goal weight.
So I am slacking off.
Case in point, I didn't go running this weekend.
Case in point, I let myself have a 4 day vacation from exercise of any (real) kind.
I may not have eaten too unhealthy (only 1 bowl of ice cream and some baked apples with whipped cream as far as the desserts go....)
But I am frustrated with myself.
Because I didn't stick to my diet.
I didn't exercise.
I didn't work hard enough.
Especially not hard enough for someone whose goal was to be 12 lbs. lighter 4 weeks from now.
So what to do now?
Wallow in it?
Kick myself for not running when the weather was nice (albeit, uber windy) instead of this disgusting rain?
Well, I'll tell you...
My plan of attack is pretty drastic....
Ready for it???
I am going to keep doing what I have been doing.
It's worked so far.
25+ lbs. don't lie....
I am going to make myself do the things I hate the most (i.e., 30 Day Shred, anyone???)
I am going to work just as hard as I did when I first started.
I am going to run.
I am going to eat right.
WHEN I CAN.
I am going to enjoy holiday parties.
I am going to live my life.
And be healthy and thoughtful about it.
So, how about you?
How'd you do this holiday weekend?
Did you stick to your goals?
Did you cave and eat a bowl of ice cream? (Jillian keeps Ben and Jerry's in her freezer. I saw it on Entertainment Tonight. And I believe everything I see on ET!!!!)
What's your game plan for the upcoming holiday season?
Is anyone still reading this?
Good thing I enjoy talking to myself...
