I WILL return to healthy eating and exercise!
With almost impressive dedication, I set out to shed pounds and increase strength last June. I enjoyed the lifestyle change and the physical result. I hit my target, ideal weight in five months and was ready to take on distance running. But then I got sick. It was never completely awful, but it did hang on for weeks. I coughed a lot and had little energy. I lost the will to run.
Luckily I was able to maintain my weight without keeping up the exercise. I continued healthy eating though. My portions were smaller and I cut out a lot of fatty sweet crap. I started throwing away food that the kids didn’t eat instead of acting like a human garbage disposal.
Now I’ve mucked up my eating too! I’ve ingested a ridiculous amount of sweet crap and have experienced a bit of over-eating at mealtime these past two weeks. I see the numbers creeping up slowly on the scale and know that NOW is the time to get back to exercising and eating right.
