Well hello there. Long time no write/read. I have been thinking about blogging and for some reason I never seem to get it done. I have had so many excuses for so many things lately it's pathetic! I can happily say that my weight is actually coming down. With going back to work I find myself on track during the day for the most part, it's the evenings that are killing me right now. I just seem to want to stuff as much as I can in my mouth. Sometimes I'm not even really aware of what I am doing and sometimes I just don't really seem to care. I have had days where I have gotten myself back in check and even popped my workout in the machine! Those days I'm very happy with myself. Being over weight seems to be a horrible cycle - round and round we go. We eat because we are fat and we are fat because we eat.
In the last few weeks I have made some really positive changes in my life. A very good friend of mine introduced me to a wonderful group of women through an accountability group. This group is tied to coaches from Beach Body and they could not be more supportive - I really needed something like this. I have been missing the group part of Weight Watchers - that support and the chance to bounce ideas off of each other. It's great to be able to share things with this wonderful group of women. I have even brought another friend of mine in to the group realizing she could benefit from the extra support. Through this group I have been introduced to Shakeology - a great meal replacement shake. I have been using the chocolate one and I feel so satisfied and good when I drink it. I have also been introduced to Piyo - what an amazing workout! If you want some that you don't have to bounce around with this is for you! Keep in mind none of this is cheap but quality rarely is.
I haven't been consistant with my workouts at this point. Hubs and I said we were going to do this together and the. It just hasn't worked out that way. I have done it twice and he hasn't. He has been sick the latter part of the week so I have to give him a break there. The unfortunate thing is that I also gave myself a break. It's been a long week with work, school meetings and just stuff. To add to it my son has been sick no one is sleeping well. I have let this keep me from working out. I need to drop the excuses and get moving. I want to feel strong and healthy again - I really don't enjoy tired and squishy.
