This has been me for the last couple of months.  I am unhappy with the weight I have re-gained.   I know Weight Watchers works.  I  know how good I felt about myself when I was at goal weight and challenging myself to run a little farther and a little faster.  I know how to fix what's broken within me, but I just haven't been able to take that first step to getting back on track.

Why am I stuck?


It's easier to stay stuck than to get going.

There's a heaping dose of honesty.


In addition to being lazy, I have another excuse.  I know excuses are worthless, but my other excuse is  Daylight Savings Time.  I mean has Daylight Savings Time sabotaged anyone else's life?  We were walking every night after work.  E-V-E-R-Y night.  We always did at least 2 miles, but sometimes we really got into the conversation, or found a neighborhood full of fantastic houses, and well, the 2 miles turned in to 5.  

We were in a groove and we looked forward to the walks.  The walk was dual purposed: mental and physical therapy!  And then, Daylight Savings Time happened.  It is pitch dark by the time we get off work.  When I get home, my brain thinks that it is at least 8 o-clock.  It doesn't want to cook supper because it is so late.  I  don't want to walk on the treadmill because it is so late.  All I really want to do is take a hot bath and put on my jammies.  Yes, Daylight Savings time (+ laziness) has led to my downward spiral.

I know... Save the drama for my mama.

So, without further adieu, This weekend is it.  I commit.  

I commit to:
  • Packing breakfast in the morning
  • Packing lunch
  • Exercising at least 30 minutes everyday (& gradually increasing to 60 min.)
  • Drinking at least a liter of water a day.
  • Minimizing soda intake (like to 1 a day)

Wish me luck!
