New day, New beginning....tomorro

Life is not perfect, nor are my eating habits or exercising habits. Things have fallen to the side again. I'm trying like crazy to keep up with exercising. I may exercise 3 days a week. Running has yet again taken a back seat. I am NOT a morning person and I can NOT get out of bed before 7am for the life of me. It has been too warm for me to get out and run. I have been doing video and the treadmill....I'm bored to tears now on the never used to bother me. NOw since I'm running outside, treadmill is torture!

Weight hasn't moved and I guess that is didn't go up. I'm back to eating something sweet daily and sometimes its all day long. Every snack I eat its sweet. That habit has got to get kicked! I started calorie cycling last week.....didnt go well cause I could not stick with it.
Tomorrow, thankgod for tomorrows. I plan on doing the calorie cycling thing I have talked with myself and basically told myself that its sad that I can't stick with something longer than a day! I'm committing myself for 1 full week calorie cycling AND exercise. When we reach the end of next week, I will look back at the week and see what worked and what didn't. The only downfall I see coming up the following week, is I have to go down south. I'm literally scared to death of this short vacation. It will only be 3 days...THANK GOD. We have to take grandma home and get Johnathon and bring him back home. Grandma is here making plans on what to fix for dinner while we are down there!! I tried my hardest telling her nothing big, nothing fancy but it fell on deaf ears. I was near tears trying to tell her don't fix all the sweets. I dont know if I will be strong enough to resist her sweets...that sounds so stupid, its a stupid piece of cake or walk away! thats all you have to do! but they are sitting there, whispering your name and as the day goes on the whisper becomes louder. I dont know how to ignore that! When we were there at Thanksgiving. I ate so much I was in pain. I gained 4 pounds in 5 days. I swore to myself I would NEVER EVER do that to my body again. I guess I will have to remember the pain and discomfort I was in at that time.

I have to get a gripe on my eating. Exercise, yeah I slack sometimes at it, but once I pick it back up I'm good. I love exercise I love the way it makes me feel so that one has been a fairly easy one for me to stick with. When I'm "off" though, its hard to get it back on!

    You are absolutely right, Thank God for tomorrows! I know exactly how you feel. Today my husband came home from his brother's house and my sister-in-law sent home over 1 dozen fresh baked Oatmeal Cookies! I know that if I eat one, I will crave more bad foods for the rest of the day. So I left the cookies untouched for my husband and daughter (the skinny ones, hehe). You will make it through this and there will always be a new, day, a new beginning and a tomorrow to thank God for. Don't beat yourself up if you slip, because you, just like all the rest of us are only human. Good luck to you and enjoy your trip.
