Yesterday I got back on the wagon – detoxed myself of PB (yes it’s in the garbage…) and carbs. I ate pretty well –within my calories, but I was bad on water – I really didn’t drink any L (bad me). I also got in 3 walks and a 4 mile run.
I have been in a funk this last week. I was bored and annoyed that I had to lose weight. I was bored of trying, it has been 15 months of constantly watching what I eat, what I do, and then measure my success (to some degree) based on a medal object on my basement floor. I was annoyed that I had allowed myself to go so far down the unhealthy path. Had I not gained anymore weight after college I would be at my target weight right now. But nope I have to keep going. Welcome to my funk mindset.
I really had to sit back and think about it. Which statement did I want to be?
Burpees suck, but it’s a great feeling when I am done with them. I remember at Christmas Steve said 5 minutes of burpees burns one Christmas cookie so that’s like 150-180 calories. Is a frosted sugar cookie with sprinkles really worth 5 minutes of burpees?
Some days the wagon ride is smooth, other days it’s bumpy as hell and I feel like I am always chasing it down. But what matters is that I get back on. When I fall off I will not go back to the starting line and start over. I pick myself up where I am at and chase that darn wagon down.
Now which of the statements do you want to be?
