Gettin' My GROOVE Back!

Yeah, so looking at my last blog, apparently it didn't make much difference.


I have been struggling for some time now. Although I have kept up my working out, I have let myself relax a little too much in the food and drink department. After part of the weekend on the road, I let myself continue on my destructive path even when I was back home and could have more control. That was abundantly evident when I stepped on the scale on Monday. I was reluctant to do it, because I knew I would be up. I just didn't know how much: 4 pounds from the previous regular Wednesday weigh-in. 

I'm glad I did it now, because it was a big wake-up call. Even though I'm working out and eating pretty good during the week, it can all be undone by a free-for-all attitude on the weekend. 

I started anew on Monday. I usually do well during the day at work, but I tend to slack once I get home. I've been very conscious of both what I've been eating and how much this week. I pushed extra hard on the workouts, and by my regular Wednesday WI, I had erased the gain and a tiny bit more! 

It's not been too difficult so far this week, but I know I have the weekend and its challenges looming ahead. I commit to staying on track and getting back into my comfort maintenance range by the end of the month. 

Maintenance is just that.... I have to constantly maintain my vigil and commitment if I want to keep off the weight. I'm so excited to be approaching 10 months of keeping it off!
