A Good Break

Usually when I take a break from the blog, it means that I've also taken a break from eating well and working out. I'm happy to say that's not the case this time around. Unfortunately, I've been a little lazy and I also didn't have a lot of time for more of the time I was in Indiana.

I'm waiting for dinner to finish cooking- a grilled chicken breast and sweet potato served over a bed of spinach (who AM I?)- and then hope to get into bed early. Steve caught his first cold of the school year and I think it's safe to say it's headed in my direction.

Last week in Indiana was another test of my will power and ability to stay on "game" despite having every possible temptation thrown my way or, in most cases, literally staring me in the face (or sitting right in front of me). But I did resist. I spent all week making healthy choices, telling people what I was doing, working out after a full freaking day of work before heading out for a long night of work. I did it and felt really great after the first week back on the game. In fact, I had to travel with my scale so I had my first weigh-in while I was on the road and had a huge loss.

This is mainly because I had a huge gain in my week off. But whatever. I'm on track, I'm doing better, I'm moving forward, blah blah blah.

So I'm back home and it feels good to be on program.

Speaking from personal experience, staying on track is so hard when you are away... I commend you on your progress. If you're interested, these are a couple of tips I've learned over the past couple of years to keep me in check. 1) find an exercise regime that is FUN and doesn't seem like exercise. That was roller skating for me! 2) Don't deprive yourself! I eat what I want, but I eat it in reasonable proportions (yes, eating too much sometimes), but trying to keep it real. 3) Have a buddy a two (which sounds like you do).

Anyhow, those are some things that have helped me the past and present. I'm STILL overweight, but I feel the healthiest I have been, in years because I am eating well, exercising regularly and I have a support system to help me. I look forward to continuing to follow you. You are brave and I have soooooo much confidence for you! You go little Moo!!!
