Wow! All I can say is that this mess is so much harder than it looks. I started off so strong, but five weeks in and I’m feeling like DAMN I have a long way to go, can I really do this! Then I read this wonderful blog this evening by Trey Ramsey titled, I’m Not Sick. In the very last paragraph of this post he wrote just what I needed to hear, he said, “I simply decided to change and then relentlessly pursued it. I made mistakes. I experienced setbacks. I felt discomfort, pain, and was a little hungry now and then. But I never quit and never will. Anyone can do the same. You just have to actually do it.”
Ahhhh there is was, Hello Mrs. Pity party get the heck outta your head and back in the game. You are not the victim, you are the victor! That is what he was really saying to me. Thank you Trey for the wakeup call today, I truly needed it, because I was quickly slipping back into old habits, old thought patterns, and that scares the bejeezus out of me!
So, I’m back and ready to go full force this week. I have exactly 11 ½ weeks until I am getting on an airplane and heading to New York with Chivon Morris of Her Nation and I need to be ready. A lot can change physically in that amount of time if I work at it. If you have any advice I’m all ears because I want to feel good when I walk off that plane and I want to represent Her Nation with confidence.
Okay, now to the real embarrassing stuff, weight loss 0 sadly I gained 3 lbs this week :(. Workouts 0. Water barely any. Healthy eating ummm I think I had a salad. Sleep well let’s just say I was lucky to make it to bed before 2 am and I get up at 6am. Not a good week, a matter of fact the last couple weeks haven’t been great, but it’s a new week, a new chance, and I am not giving up. I will hit my goals this time! I will not be defeated by myself or anyone or anything else.
NEW YORK HERE I COME! Let the countdown begin!
