Back on Track in August!

Monday, August 02, 2010

Soooo....I've been bad...very, VERY bad for the past couple of weeks. My eating has gotten out of control and my exercise has become nothing compared to what I was doing. I've been walking alot still, yes...but I've all but given up on my ea active 30 Day Challenge (17 workouts in...yep only 3 to go and I gave up). I used to run 3/4 times a week but it got too hot. I was doing Jillian's 30DS but I got too bored. I have about 40 workout DVDs plus a wii with all the sports/exercise games you could imagine. So what is my problem????

Well.???? I'm waiting for an answer, cuz I surely don't have one.

So this is how it's going to be. For the month of August I am going to attempt to track all my food (whether I like it or not) maybe this will be a wakeup call...I will get back to exercising 6-7 days a week..and I will get rid of the diet pop kick I've been back on, and back to drinking my 8-10 glasses of water a day. I LOVE water, so why have I stopped drinking it??? answer!

But I've been there before...and I know this is how it starts....oh it's only a week, oh it's only 2's only one workout missed...and then it snowballs into 40 pounds gained back.

NOT THIS TIME!!! I am jumping back on that wagon...and I am taking off...and leaving at least 8 of those pounds behind (and not on MY BEHIND lol)....I will be motivated by the friends on this site and I will try to help to motivate others into reaching their goals....this month, I WILL get back on track...I WILL be good to my body...I WILL lose those 8 pounds.

And when I do...I will reward myself with a new heart rate monitor...I have been wanting one forever and just couldn't justify the purchase....but this time, it will be worth every penny if I can just get back on track!

    I too have been very, very lazy and have chosen NOT to be mindful of what I eat. Why is the food log such a downer? I HATE doing it; too time consuming, I guess. August is notoriously a 'crazy' month for me, guess I like to celebrate the end of summer all month long!

    You have inspired me to get 'back on the wagon', as they say. I WILL walk at least 5 times in the coming week... AND drink water instead of, dare I say, beer.

    I'm feelin' ya sister!
    I've been eating like crazy and it's driving me nuts. Today I planned out all my food and I'm thinking of doing a food blog, like taking pictures of everything I eat and posting it. Want to do it with me for a week?
    No pressure hun. You might be back on track by now!
    I heart ya, and I hope you're doing well!

    It must be some sort of 'funk' that is going around as so many of us are on the same boat. I wonder why we can't seem to get it through our heads that it is a sinking ship. Hang in there! YOU CAN DO IT!

    You're singing my song, darlin! I'm at the same point as you, only I really HAVE gained back 40 lbs (plus). I'm so tired of this...and I really need to figure out WHY I do this to myself...why is the siren call of frankenfood so powerful on me?

    Let's keep in touch and keep each other motivated to make this August the BEST MONTH we've had in a VERY long time!

    hugs! ~Tess

    You can do anything when you set your mind to it! Congrats on jumping back on the bandwagon and on setting your goals.

    (I haven't completed the EA Active yet. My third start will be the good one! lol What you wrote sounds too familiar to my ear.)

    Here's to a great month of August!
