Well, I've been a slacker - I thought I could keep everything under control by not logging my food or exercise. Late spring into August I pretty much fell off the exercise wagon, and wasn't logging my food. August I started going to a bootcamp at the gym which is 40 minutes of intense exercise 3 days a week - I thought this was going to get me back where I was in February and March. I still didn't log my food like I did last year. And guess what? My clothes just kept getting tighter and tighter, even with the muscle I was building. I haven't stepped on the scale since starting bootcamp in August, because I knew it was going the wrong way, but was avoiding it - maybe if I didn't step on the scale this wouldn't be happening? Sure, I had lots of excuses, too much stress at work, menopause, the kid going off to college, just a whole plethora of excuses but that's all they were, excuses for being lazy. It has to end today - I got out my winter clothes, and they don't fit. Sure, there's probably a box of clothes from when I started this journey, but I don't want to wear them! So, now's the time to re-examine my goals and stay strong - got to avoid those temptations!
