I'm no good at blogging

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

I haven't posted anything since August. Maybe if I was better at blogging, that would help my motivation. I guess I get discouraged because not too many people read them. That's ok. I should be posting my thoughts for me and not for anyone else. I will try to keep that in mind.

Work has been crazy again, and I've worked a bunch of overtime. That makes it impossible to exercise in the evenings (when I'm working until 9 or 10pm). Working that late also makes it difficult to wake up an hour early the next morning to exercise before work. Of course, I also let myself revert back to my old habits of stress eating (everything bad).

I regained 18 pounds. Not terrible, but not what I needed, either. Work has slowed down for the moment, so I'm trying to get back on the SP wagon. I work up early and did 52 minutes of cardio this morning.

I have two goals currently. I'd lik e to lose 22 pounds by March 18th. That would put me under my lowest weight mid-2011. That is also a few days before hubby and I leave for Scotland! I'd like to look a bit thinner in all of those vacation pics. :)

Second, this summer is my 20th class reunion. It's at the end of July. After Scotland, I'd like to lose another 20 pounds. This all seems doable, right? Please tell me if I'm reaching for too lofty of a goal. If I can achieve both of these, then I'll be at my goal weight by my reunion.

If anyone is reading this, please pray that work doesn't go crazy again and require me to work 10-15 hours of OT a week. I just need some time to DO this!

    22 pounds by March 18th is very doable! Just put your mind to it and you can succeed. And don't feel bad because you are not alone. I regained 16 pounds the last few months of 2011! The positive of that is that we are catching ourselves now and doing something about it. Best of luck to you!!

That is one of my goals this year is to do more blogging as I think it will help to keep me honest with what is going on. *Hugs* to you and yours and I will pray that everything stays slow so you can focus on you.
