The Rut

I was doing really well with eating healthy and working out and then something happened on Thursday. Something big happened. Okay, okay, nothing ACTUALLY happened, I just hit a mental block. I found myself popping excessive amounts of Goldfish in my mouth. I had a (delicious) martini rimmed with sugar with dinner. It was a "bad" day but that's okay. I would never be able to maintain a healthy lifestyle if I didn't treat myself to things on occasion. Friday would be a better day - except it wasn't. I skipped boot camp. Saturday was no better and by Sunday, I was washing down chips and pizza with Stoli Raz. I didn't even set the alarm to exercise yesterday since I knew it wouldn't happen. Then last night I had a Board meeting for my MOMS Club and I was basically the most Negative Nelly ever. We were talking about things like disabled people, animals in need, and small children and I was being a total grouch about it. I'm pretty sure puppies were crying in Heaven when they heard my comments last night.

So I KNEW that I had to get back to working out this morning. It makes such a difference with my mental state. So even though I didn't head to bed until midnight I still got up with the alarm at 4:46am (because 4:46 is mentally much later than 4:45am!) and went to boot camp. So now I'm back and feeling good. I also got my prize today for winning the photo contest which is pretty cool.


A PINK hoodie (my fave!), a jump rope, and a coupon for future classes. Side note: I bought Isabelle a jump rope recently and showed her how to use it. She took one look at me doing it and said, "I think you need more practice with that." Burn!

  1. It seems that I have a monthly binge eating session (you know..."that" time). I literally eat everything in sight for about a week, but I do workout while I pig out, so I think that helps. Don't give up, you've been doing so good.

  2. Ruts happen, and sometimes we fall into ditches, but we climb out eventually, or those we love drag us up & out.

    After my trip to CA last week, I'm still in recovery mode, no interest in working out, but I know that's just what my head and body need, so off to the Y I go!

    And I totally agree, 4:46am is WAY later than 4:45am!

  3. Congrats & you're doing great! I'm sure even that Jillian chick from that show eats a few Oreos now and then!
