As I mentioned previously, when my mom got engaged in July I got inspired to lost some weight. And I really worked hard.....the first 3 weeks. I exercised every day, either doing strength exercises or cardio. I tracked every morsel that went in my mouth and avoided most of the bad food stuff. I was really proud of myself and lost 11 pounds and 2.5 inches during those weeks.
Then, on August 7, my mother in law came to visit. I was, of course, happy to have her and appreciated all she did while she was here. However, I don't like to exercise in front of other people (even Joey). So I allowed myself to not do it "until she left." Of course, I could have gone walking still, but it was easy to put walking into the category of "I'll do it when she leaves."
Here's where the real trouble starts, though.
Mom-in-law has been gone since last Thursday, August 19. And I still haven't gone walking or done any exercising. I've been telling myself that I've just been too busy/tired and I'll do it "tomorrow." Last night I had very good intentions of putting on my tennis shoes after the kids went to bed and doing all my exercises. Except I really wanted to finish looking through the ABC Distributors catalogue I'd received that day. So I sat down on the couch to quickly finish it, only to be distracted by The Next Food Network Star, which Joey was watching on the DVR. Then I finished up stuff in the kitchen and before I knew it, it was time for bed. Sure, I could have stayed up late. I just don't want/like to.
So another night down. I'm still recording everything I eat and doing good in that area, so that's a plus. I just have to track down my motivation again and get back to exercising my booty off (literally). I think once I get started again I'll have no trouble getting back into that routine. I just have to cross that first hurdle.
