Back to Work....

I'm so close to my goal I can practically taste what have I been doing? Making really poor choices. As I've said before I'm an emotional eater. The idea of hitting goal is freaking me out slightly. Hubby has been working alot and coming home so stressed out that he just explodes. The kids are both going through interesting stages with their attitudes. The list could go on and on. And I have not been coping well with any of it. But, this is a new week. Recognizing that I am sabotaging all my own hard work really pissed me off this morning. This is a new day, a new start. All I can do is accept that I made mistakes last week and make the changes I need to succeed and make it to my goal.
It really hit me when I went through my closet again this weekend and cleaned out the clothes that are too big.....I have come so far. I can't lose the drive now. I need to get to the goal and figure out how to stay there. I'm looking forward to my 5K on Thursday. After that I am going to start training for another half marathon. And, after seeing my quads tone up from all the squats in the Insanity workouts, I am going to steal another bloggers' idea and do 10-15 squats after each time I take a potty break :) Small steps often bring great reward. It's time to get back to work!
Oh, and thank you all for the kind words when I was struggling last week. Keep moving forward. Remember....Failure is not falling down, it's refusing to get back up! I'm getting back up, are you?

You can do it this week! I had a bad week last week as well, but I've vowed to 'get back on the wagon this week'.

I'm doing ChaLEAN Extreme workouts from beachbody, but thinking about trying you love it?

That's the way to get back into it!! I know that I am jumping back on and am planning on making a good effort to make it to my first goal. It does help if you have someone else that is doing it with you (mine is my husband). I know that it is hard when you are doing it by yourself and there are so many temptations around but I have done it by myself before and many others have done it by themselves too. Hope this week is fantastic!! ;)

I am totally with you. Every time I get within 5lbs of goal, I go on a frenzy.

At some point, I have to deal with the fact that I CAN ACCOMPLISH THIS, but I think I eat like that so I can continue to beat myself up, because that's SO much easier than singing my own praises.

You too?

You are going to feel so good once you're back on track. I went off for a week and felt horrid (I'm now back on:). I wanted to scrap the whole thing but I couldn't do it, I couldn't quit on myself, not this time...and you won't either. You have come so far..YOU HAVE. And you will finish because you are worth it! P.S. thanks for letting me know my new posts were not showing up on your dashboard from the "nobrowniesforlunch" blog. I went ahead and started a fresh one called "witheringwaist." Thanks again, Lucy
