Failing Forward

It is an interesting concept, isn’t it? Taking your failures and using them to kick butt moving forward. Talk about motivation to get back out there and go. This past season, I promised myself that I wouldn’t let it get bad. As soon as the cold weather hit, I got a gym membership. I started going. Problem- I could NoT get my eating under control.

So it’s just Thanksgiving, okay just a couple weeks until Christmas and so on. Then the exercise lessened. Do you ever feel like when it is cold out that you just cannot do anything but cuddle under a warm blanket and drink something warm? Oh I’m such a sucker for this. Throw in some Gilmore Girls or Harry Potter and I won’t be moving for a week.

So I knew I’ve gained back some of my weight. Yesterday I forced a weighin with measurements and pics. Oh how I hate that scale! So yes, I’m back where I started (well almost). And we are talking like 2 years ago!!! I really had a tougher year in general- seriously this weight gain was more over the last 9 months or so.

The measurements hurt a bit (and if I was still getting measured by a trainer, I probably would have cried). But my pics weren’t horrible. I can tell in the mid-section so much but my face hasn’t really returned yet so there is still hope.

Seeing all this- I have 2 options

  1. Crawl back in the hole that has been keeping me warm this winter
  2. Kick Arse and get this back on track now

fun fact: husband is on board so will make it easier. We are trying the Paleo diet for 28 days and will assess and decide if we need to add any foods back sticking to a clean diet mentality or if we will continue mostly with Paleo. I’ll try to post updates on the food too as we go. Alright off to the gym!

Sending All My Love!
