And Scene!!

As I talked about before, I have kinda been on a break on the diet front. The energy I was expending on it just wore me out. I have put back on poundage, say around 14 of them!! I am not proud, I am not ashamed. I KNOW how to do dieting and exercising right, I am not 60 pounds down the road either and deciding to get back on track.

So as I did in the beginning of this journey, I am going to start with simple goals.

Goal 1: I will stop the unmonitored snacking. To be read, no mindless eating. I know my choices of snacks have changed drastically, but the habit is still a bad one.

Goal 2: Severely curb my eating in the evenings, as this is the real issue I have in keeping on track. I can not eat all day and not once have an issue with it, but come 6 or 7, then the urge kicks in.

Goal 3: Get back to 205 pounds. I don't forsee this being my biggest challenge by far, but it is out there now.

Goal 4: Get back out on the road, the pavement, the sidewalk, and get my running revved back up. In my mind, my mood has been affected lately by my lack of running. I am getting more and more impatient at work and waiting on the day I start law school. I get a caged bird feeling and it does not bode well for my work product when I get that way. I remember when I ran consistently, that i was always in a good mood, positive outlook, and ready for whatever came my way.

These things are on my mind now.


  1. I hear ya! I gained about the same amount by not being careful with what I eat (see my post today for more details). I literally just got done with my journaling for the day of what I ate. Its my way of getting back on track.


  2. I am glad you are catching it before it gets any worse! You know what to do so do what you know. I look forward to reading about a loss this week.

  3. Ahh, welcome back! You have a really good mindset about the whole process - the loss, the eating, the exercise. Put all the factors in their proper place in the equation and I'm sure you will be back to success. It's all about progress, not perfection. What a healthy realization this post was - thanks for sharing!

  4. Glad to hear from you! Glad to know you're getting back on track. Sooner is always better than later. You've done so well and I know you'll be fine.

  5. A little time away is fine. You know what to do and you have a plan. I believe you will do it. You have worked very, very hard to get to law school. Please don't let the anxiety take over for too long. Stay strong!
