The Three Keys

It started slowly, as slippery slopes often do. First I stopped counting calories as closely, then I skipped the occasional workout and then before I knew it I was baking cookies, pizza’s and calorie ridden Mexican dips for my taste bud recipes. I got on the scale today, something I have not done in over two weeks and I have gained two pounds. Two pounds back of the 18 I had lost and I ask myself how I got back to gaining instead of loosing.

I know that the answer is me, that I let me slip, and that I let my focus get a little hazy. What did it teach me, it taught me that YET AGAIN I need to put me first! I need to make more time for a healthier me, more time to make meals that are worth-while and healthy to eat, more time to get my workouts complete. More time to be the best me that I can be.

Focus, prioritizing and determination are the keys

I'm sure I've slipped back a bit too with Grandma and Grandpa visit this past week, baking cake and having more food than I normally make. I don't even want to know what the scale says for a couple more weeks. The sad part is, it's so easy to put on 5 pounds and yet so hard to take back off! Let's get back on track together.

I'm sorry your weight is fluxuating, don't be so hard on yourself. I know you have the drive and will to power through! I see another post on the dashboard, but it said it doesn't exist? About baby brain and mother nature arriving.....

If cookies tasted like crap our lives would be so much easier. Actually, if sugar in general tasted like crap. I wish it could be like when you drank so much of one kind of alcohol that it made you sick, and then you were put off from it for months if not years! I wish we could be put off sugar. It is definitely our arch nemesis. Maybe we should give it a villainous name and actually make it a battle of good vs. evil.
