I thought about posting last night, but no good news to report. I really wanted to write that I jumped back on the wagon moving full speed ahead on my weight loss endeavor...not the case. One of my feet still drag behind the back of the wagon kicking up dust. Last night, me and a bag of Salsa Verde chips had a little rendezvous, in which the chips proceeded to seduce me into their cheesy, spicy embrace.
I think the long holiday break threw me off track: lazy days of sofa surfing, late nights of partying like a rock star, sleeping in everyday (sometimes past 11:00A.M.), "treating myself" to holiday eats, and so on and so.
I just get so frustrated. I read other blogs where the author breezed through Thanksgiving with no problems, or the blogger got back on track the very next day. For some reason during the holidays, the wiring in my brain malfunctions and short circuits. But like I said before, it's a mindset, and I need to get my head back in the game. That means I must and really need to do the following:
- Workout CONSISTENTLY
- Make MORE APPROPRIATE food choices (focus on filling foods)
- LISTEN to my body (Am I really hungry? Am I full yet?)
- Remember to take my medications (No, Mom. I do not want one of those pill box thingies for my purse.)
And this is why I am so frustrated. I know what I need to do. I know the plan, but why do I fail to execute the plan? I probably need to take a trip to the library for some books on how to work through my frustrations. On second thought, the library may not be a good idea. By now, the library personnel probably posted a wanted picture of me on the wall due to a CD I checked out some time ago (which I found the other day).
