I'm so close to my goal I can practically taste it....so 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?
