Climbing out of the rut

Tuesday, February 24, 2015

So that whole blogging once a week thing didn't work out so well. I'm still here working on me though. I've been stuck in a rut for the better part of a year, and I'm really ready to get back to working towards my goal. I have lost 9 lbs. in the last year or so. More or less, I have maintained. When working with a 120 lb. loss I know that is huge, but I'm ready for more.

Honestly, my workouts have been pretty horrific over the past several months. I know this is the main part of my problem. I've gotten eating under control and I'm able to enjoy life and still maintain by what I put on my plate, but I still have more goals I want to reach. I have had no small cheats with food in the past three weeks and I still haven't seen a budge in the scale, so I know it's time to get back in the gym. I will admit, I have been completely lazy. I get over credited by my fitbit on spark with active minutes and calories being tracked I know I'm not burning. I'm not sure how the syncing works, but it's definitely off. I love walking and jogging outside, but with a monthly average temperature of 12 degrees, this is NOT an option.

Excuses are done. I have access to THREE amazing gyms on the university campus I work on, one of them only about 50 yards from my office. Sad I haven't used them, I know. You heard it here folks, tomorrow I'm packing my gym clothes and working on reaching more goals this year. I'm SO close to 40% weight lost (1.6 lbs)! I've already informed my husband he's going to have to start helping with dinner, cause this momma is ready to shred!

Thanks for being here and listening to my rants sparkies. Even if they aren't as consistent as I was hoping.

    Girl, don't beat yourself up too much. Going three weeks without cheating is a MAJOR accomplishment in my book! I'm glad it sounds like you know what you need to do and are finding ways to do it. I'm with you - this is the worst weather for running outside right now! I CANNOT wait for Spring to get here finally!

    Chin up! I know you're going to kill that last 1.6 lbs and we'll be celebrating that 40% weight loss on here with you SOON! :)
