What is Wrong with Me?

Guess what! I didn't follow my dinner and exercise plan last night for the fourth week in a row! What is wrong with me? I am so determined throughout the day, but once I get home from work I feel so drained and just cave. Last night it was Chinese food (yet again) and absolutely no gym time. I looked at my calendar and I really do believe that I haven't been to the gym since March. Three months of making a plan to go and not following through. How does that happen?

Last night my husband and I went grocery shopping for the first time in two weeks. We were seriously in need of groceries and I am feeling so much better now that we have a stocked fridge. It's much easier to make healthy choices when you have the choice to make! This crosses one excuse off of my list of why I cave in to bad choices while at home. The other excuse of "I'm too tired" is going to be the next one that I overcome.

So, now that I have groceries in the house again, for breakfast this morning I tried Special K Chocolate Pastry Crisps. They were really good and only 100 calories!

My husband is an awesome baker and cook. This weekend he baked two custard pies. This morning I brought the second pie in to work before we ate it all ourselves.

It's 10:00 a.m. and my co-workers are working on eating the pie already! I, however, am going to keep my distance from this delicious dessert. I had a slice over the weekend and that is all that I need.

Even though I am extremely frustrated with myself, I am keeping a smile on my face.

I am shocked to see how long I have been putting the gym off. Tonight I am focusing on myself because I deserve it. I am going to make the dinner planned for tonight and I will be going to the gym on my "rest day" since I didn't go last night!


  1. It's hard to workout at night after work. Have you tried going in the morning before work? Its hard for the first couple of weeks to get up at 5 or 5:30am to get a workout done, but I find that if I don't workout in the am it doesn't get done. Plus I feel more energized during the day from the workout!

    1. Thanks for the advice! I use to love going to the gym after work once it was routine. I think that I just need to get that started again! That's always the hard part, but it's worth it!

  2. I also prefer the morning. That or having it built into my day so I MUST do it (my bike ride to and from work for example). These are the only options that consistently work for me.
