So we all have moments of weakness. Moments of I'm tired I do not want to do this today. It seems all it takes is one small event to happen and poof weeks go by without you even realized your train has been derailed.
Weight loss was hard. But maintenance can be even harder. It's especially tough if you splurge once in awhile. It can be easy to fall back into old habits. It's easier to eat unhealthy than it is to eat healthy. Yes I said it. You know what, its in fact a pain in the ass.
When I was unhealthy I was caught up on all my tv shows. Yes every night dinner would be something quick and then couch time for the night existed. When I was unhealthy my alarm went off, I woke up and went to work. When I was unhealthy grocery shopping never took more than 30 minutes.
You get the idea...
Now I spend my evenings cooking, packing lunches, and washing containers from all the lunches that day. I wake up early in the morning and run, and if I don't make it up then I workout at night before or after all that housework. I have double the laundry to do because I wear 2 outfits every day. I have to stop and write down what I ate ans keep track of points.
It is so easy to slack off. It is too easy sometimes. You make excuses at first its just one here and there, then 2 and maybe 3. So before you know it all those tiny slips and excuses add up to one big derailment.
What I want to say is this: its ok. It's normal to fall off the wagon once in awhile its ok. But what I will also say is this: hop back on right away! We are waiting for you :)
So will you join me in getting back2basics this month? I figure December is a great time to do it. Thursday kicks off the new month! I know we may have gotten detailed in November by marathons, thanksgiving, etc. And it may be easy to say eff it Christmas and Hanukkah are coming I might as well wait for the new year....
So let's get back on track. Maybe you need to get in your workouts, or maybe nail your nutrition. Whatever is holding you back let it go :)
Do not wait. Let's get back on track and #back2basics now and not feel guilty later ;)
