If there’s one thing I miss about Weight Watchers, it’s the weekly accountability of weighing in at the center. Just the fact that at the end of the week, I was going to weigh in was usually enough to keep me on track and stay motivated. Once I left Weight Watchers, I stopped weighing myself weekly and even though last week I challenged myself to get on track with exercise again…I took a spring break along with my two kids. I needed a break from the blog, the laptop, counting calories and exercise minutes and obsessing over what foods I was going to or not going to eat. The break was much needed. I know what I need to do and I’m ready to go for it. Unfortunately, I also put on about 4lbs, which I could blame on the reese’s eggs, but I know it was a combination of many things.
This post is so hard for me to write today, I’ve been composing it in my head for a few days now, but keep hesitating to publish. I used to be so active, now it seems most days doing laundry and dishes is active as it gets. I am pretty disgusted that my life revolves around the TV and the DVR. I am home all day with my 4 year old who is really easy going and pretty much entertains himself and does his own thing; apparently I don’t play cars the “right” way. I used to be the person who was on the go all day long, trying to squeeze in workouts and outside walks whenever I could, and lately it seems I can’t be bothered to do more than 30 minutes a day. I don’t want to be this person anymore. I want to push myself when I work out, squeeze in exercise whenever I can during the day and most importantly…remove the Jen shaped imprint off the couch.
I have the best intentions at heart, but have the follow through of nothing. I don’t know what my issue has been. I know how to work hard, I know that I want to change, so why am I not changing? It comes down to one thing; laziness. I seem to run away from hard work lately and it’s showing in everything I do. I’ve been putting off everything until the very last second and I hate myself for it. I deserve better, my kids deserve better, my husband deserves better.
So, starting with this week’s weigh in (which I did yesterday morning), I will be weighing in and posting a weekly weigh in.
Starting Weight: 217.8
Current Weight: 217.8
As for my goals this week, since I really didn’t put in much effort for exercise last week, my goals are the same as they were.
270 minutes and burn a minimum of 2100 calories.
