Puttin' on my game face...

Well bugger it! I had a BAD few days. Period. Between stress, hormones, and a holiday, I managed to gain 11 lbs in the space of a few days. Seriously... 11 lbs. Yes, some of it's water weight, but not all. The scale at it's worst was reading 171.2. This morning it was down to 166.4. Progress...that's what counts. These types of things are going to happen. Holidays are inevitable as are some of my other triggers for overeating. While I'm disappointed, I have to keep moving forward.
Excuses won't get me to my goal. I went for a run last night....even though I had to wait till 9 pm because it was 104* yesterday. I did Ripped in 30 today....even though the kids made it difficult and I had to stop 3x to put on my "Mommy hat". Even though, even though, even though. Excuses are easy. I know what I have to do. Time to put my game face on and get it done....grrrrr. LOL
I have a wedding to attend in 10 days and while that's a motivator, getting to a place where I feel strong and lean is the ultimate goal. That's why "Strong and Lean" is the new catch phrase. All together now- "Strong and Lean, Strong and Lean, Strong and Lean!" Wooo!!!

I hear you! I think summer has to factor in somewhere there too! I think it is a lot harder to exercise in the summer because it is tooo hot!!! Okay....another excuse...

I do like your new catch phrase though!
