So what is it that I have proven myself more than capable of achieving? Weight gain. Since completing the longest race of my career and being in the best shape of my life, my clothes are fitting tighter and I have gained back more than ten of the pounds that I worked so hard to take off. And this is despite never working out less than five days a week. I have shared that I love food...all food, and this is making it very difficult to stay on the straight and narrow. I have not been logging my food consistently, and while I have stayed away from Cinnamon Toast Crunch, chocolate, my major trigger, has been factoring significantly in my backslide.
So today as I was getting ready to go running, I saw Eoin's motivational poster reminding me that I have lightning and fight power within me. However, I began to wonder if one of my greatest faults is in giving too much influence to my weight gaining power. Maybe if I believed as much in my skill to keep my weight off as in my skill to put it back on, just maybe I could keep it all off for once.
Now I am not going to beat myself up, because I have been getting out there and moving my body on a very consistent basis. I even ran this morning despite the fact that no one could get up and do an early morning workout with me, and you all know how I hate to run solo. I just need to find a way to get out of this eating crappy food rut. I need to regroup, and take the time to really plan what my next healthy eating steps will be. Once I have figured it all out, I will share my thoughts with you and hopefully I can begin to move myself back on the road to the more flabulous me.
