Today was my birthday. I'm forty-something. Single. Overweight. And I've had enough of this self-pity loathing mood I've been in for some time now. I need to get off my butt and do something about it. Seriously OFF MY BUTT! Otherwise I'm going to remain single and overweight for the rest of my forties..fifties..no way Jose!
So today I started back on WW. Can I say I'm starving right now and wishing I could have some birthday cake?! Maybe after my 15 miler on Saturday. I fell off the P90X bandstand when my Jersey Girl got really sick from the chemo. I'm going to start back on it on Monday, but with some changes so it's not eating up all of my time. I cannot dedicate that much time to it, running, my new puppy and work. But I need it because I noticed I wasn't feeling some of the usual pains I've had during marathon training.
I can honestly say I've been here before. I've said I'm going to get started down this road and about halfway down it something causes me to take a wrong turn. I need to understand that wrong turns in dieting are okay. Sometimes I'm going to lapse and eat 20-40 Oreos (oh double-stuff)! Just get back on track. My biggest problem is I go "all or nothing". I can't do this dieting thing, well halfway. I get so into counting points and gaining workout points and on and on that when I go overboard, I feel there is no way back. Did you know Chobani BB yogurt is "3" WW points?! It's okay to stray sometimes.
So I may be looking for guidance from some of the bloggy world success stories. If I post a comment/question on your blog, please try to offer something in return. I'm looking for encouragement as well as something to occupy my mind and fingers so I'm not standing in front of the fridge. I hope you understand. Thanks!
