As an almost life-long dieter, it was about time I had a setback in my newish fitness journey. This blog has always been my glass box to stand in and be honest about my weight loss adventures, and today is especially painful as I admit a few things. First, I haven't worked out in 5 6 weeks. Second, I've gained 1.5 lbs this week since we're off the Fix right now and I've eaten with all kinds of reckless abandon. Are we still friends even though I just told you I really suck at this sometimes? I have legitimate excuses for some of the time I didn't work out- hubbies had the flu and I was taking care of him, I had a nasty cold, I threw my back out, I hurt my knee... But if I'm completely honest, there's still a solid 3 weeks where I didn't have excuses. I just didn't work out. Sometimes I was busy, sometimes it was pure laziness. I'm not proud of it, and I can't go back and change it, but I can start again. Which I did today!
