After more than six months of thinking about updating this blog, I’m finally doing it. Talk about procrastination. Yikes. LOTS has happened since we last chatted. I got married!!! Here are a couple of pics:
We also bought a house! Needless to say I’ve been really busy, and sometimes being really busy brings stress, and stress brings inconsistencies in my healthy living/healthy eating. I’ve been seriously struggling since my last post about how awesome I was doing. Isn’t that how these things work? You’re doing so well and just when you feel like you have things under control and you can talk about how great you are at this, you end up back at square one?
The good news is that I’m not back at square one. I’ve been able to maintain much of my weight loss since I started in November 2015. For about 3.7 minutes, I hit a 20-pound weight loss in July, but thanks to life and my way of dealing with it in the form of queso, about six pounds has made its way back. Dammit.
Back when I was rocking it over the summer, I had serious motivation. Since then, I’ve had a difficult time getting that “umph” back. I’ve been making poor choices (like tonight I will have queso and I’m not even going to hide it from you), and overall I lack that spark I once had.
So what do I do? I’m going to be honest, friends, I haven’t quite figured it out yet. I love following inspirational blogs about people who have succeeded and struggle with weight loss so I’ll keep looking to them for encouragement and inspiration. I don’t see a nutritionist anymore, but I’m going to review what I learned during those sessions, and channel that same desire to get on track that I had a few months ago. And finally (but probably not really finally), I’m going to really really try to write in this blog more. It’s an accountability tool and I know all of you have been waiting for months for my return. I’m sorry I’ve kept you waiting.
If you have any ideas how I can get my motivation back, I welcome your suggestions!
