So, I’ve been a little quiet this week…
Would you believe I haven’t had anything to say? (Those people in my life who really know me would I’m sure say they do not believe that).
Ok, here’s the real truth—I am struggling. It was a rough week filled with illness, work stress, heartache, and what I think may have been a mild depressive episode (thank you very much miserable southern Ontario weather). My heart was just not in it last week, but let me assure you all, my appetite was. Oh yes friends, she was in full form. I won’t go into too many details, however, there was a small incident involving popcorn and a box of Milk Duds at the movies that I’m not very proud of.
When I started this blog, I thought “this will be great, having to blog about my weight loss will help keep me accountable, it will help keep me on track!” Well guess what folks…it soooo doesn’t work like that. And it shouldn’t. The only one who can keep me accountable is me, the only one who can keep me on track is me. Some weeks I’m going to want it bad, some weeks I’m going to care less. Since last week was definitely a care less week, I did not do anything to contribute to my short-term goals. So now I need to work twice as hard in the coming weeks. Crime, meet punishment.
So here we are, back at Monday and a new, fresh week laid out before me. The sun was shining today for the first time in about a week…I feel like this may be a sign that better days and weeks are to come.
Have a wonderful week everyone!
PS – I just want to give a shout out to my awesome, amazing friends Jennifer and Kevin who both told me that they are working on drinking less soda—I know you can both can do it and I’m so proud of you! xo Any one else up for the challenge??
