Tomorrow (Jennifer)

I dont think that when I created this blog that I intended to use it for accountability.  But I have to say that right now, that is exactly what I am using it for.  I have been struggling with not feeling that well.  And I still have swollen glands and I am not feeling that great(still no answers by the way).  But I am now off the steroids (which I dont believe helped anything at all including my weight) and I am hoping to get back into the swing of things. I have really let myself go and I dont like how it feels.  It is like a blast from the past and I need to take my life back into control before I undo much more of my hard work.

Tomorrow.  I need to have a plan.  I havent been exercising because I just havent been feeling that great.  But not exercising isnt really making me feel better either.  So, I am back at it tomorrow.  I plan to get up and run in the morning.  Its my best shot of jump starting myself back into the lifestyle I want to live.  With the exercise, it is much easier for the healthy eating to follow.  Its odd how that works for me.  An all or nothing girl I guess   :)

Water, I need to drink tons of water too.  That should combat some of the hunger I am struggling with now that my stomach seems to have stretched and I am wanting to eat more before getting full.

I need to get back to blogging regularly too.  That helps me immensely.  I am also going to go back and read some of my older posts to hopefully reinspire myself.  The scale will be ugly tomorrow no doubt.  But I must face it.  This isnt a game.  This is my life.

I am a bit disappointed in myself that I let myself fall out of my healthy habits.  I had been in *the groove* for so long that I thought it was my norm.  I was shocked I let myself fall out of that .  I partially blame the steroids as they did make me soooo hungry, but part of me kind of gave into that as well.  Like I had an excuse.  But, whats done is done and there is no point in dwelling on what I cant change.  What I can change is the choices I make from this day forward.

It sure does sound like we have been experiencing the same kind of stuff!

If I don't eat well then I don't bother exercising....really what is the point I figure and I too thought that my new norm was healthy eating ....what a BIG mistake that was!!!

Today has been good, I ate well and day one under my belt!

I will be thinking of you tomorrow! as we do this TOGETHER!

I like your last line about what you can change is from this point forward. That is so true. Life is a journey and we learn as we go and we all have set backs. I like how you don't seem to be loathing yourself but recognize a situation that you need to remedy. You have come a long way and made some amazing changes in your life!!

I agree with the water... that is a huge key, I think!
Keep smilin' girl... :)

Back at it Jennifer. Don't let a few days get you down.

Stay off the scale. Don't let a gain discourage you further. Drink lots, eat well, get back to exercising and when you are feeling "thin" again, weigh in.

We're going to get there, me and you, by the grace of God, we're going to get there.

I feel you. My exercise has been fine, but my eating has been terrible! When I am home all I want to do is eat, eat, eat... and sleep! Hopefully this week will be better.
