Well I have always been told that absence make the heart grow fonder....Have you missed me?
I'm just kidding of course, but I did want to explain to you all why I have not been posting. Basically, if you are writing a blog about weight loss and you have no intention of losing weight you don't get to post about it. All I could have taught you in this last week is how to successfully pull the peanut out of a pack of Peanut M&M's this week.
Last week, on Monday, I had a little bit of an emotional break. I was frustrated and overwhelmed with all the jobs and crazy sleep schedule, and the fact that even though through all of this I was eating good and working out and still not loosing weight. My stress level peaked and I had to do something, anything to relax just a little bit.
With that said, I cannot quit my jobs so the diet took the hit. I decided to quit for 2 weeks. My figuring is that it takes about 2 weeks to see results from a diet so maybe after two weeks off I will see results again. This was a true give up moment. I have not worried about one thing that entered my mouth, or made an effort to get to the gym. I just accepted the fact that my weight would be up at the end of this two weeks but I am OK with that. Hell, it was up anyway.
So now being labeled a quitter, I will be back on the game on Sunday. Hopefully this time I can better manage my stress level and be reasonable in my expectations. I think I just wanted all the results for every goal in my life at the same time. I have now readjusted my thinking and hopefully I can find a good balance.
I am still going to run my half marathon in April, 2 weeks off didn't help that training at all, but it did help my feet. I am also going to get my hair cut. That is one of those things that I said would happen at 100 lbs. Well its been like 8 months since I said that and I am further away from 100 now than I was then. But this nasty mess on top of my head is coming off tomorrow. Ill get it cut again at 100lbs.
So I am sorry for not posting to let you all know about the strike from my blog and the diet/weight loss program...but I am unapologetic for the break in general.
Hope you all understand and continue to follow me on this journey.
