The Absence

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.

Sometimes a hair cut is ALL it takes to help the stress level....especially when you LOVE your short hair! So enjoy the cut and getting rid of hair will get rid of some weight... :)
