So here I am. As I sat going through old Facebook photos it made me really think about what the hell I did to myself. In 4 years, I gained 47 lbs and while people tell me “oh you don’t look like you have” or “oh I can still recognize you,” I feel miserable and uncomfortable under all of the excess fat. I know this is not who I am and it upsets me when my old jeans don’t fit or I am constantly having to go out and by bigger sizes.
As you know from my last written post, I started T25 back in February. My starting weight at the time was 176 and as of two weeks ago I was at 169.1. Yes, I have not weighed myself in two weeks. Why? I got off track. I had been staying late at work and stopped prepping my food. I half assed the majority of the T25 work outs - skipping days, doubling up on work outs to catch up. After I stopped prepping my food for the week, I ended up not tracking my meals, binge eating, and starting not to care. My work got to the best of me and I am mad at myself for letting it do that. I need to leave work at work and just focus on myself.
With Vegas fast approaching, I am hoping to start back into my routine finishing up T25, focusing on the two 5K’s I have in April, and watching what I am eating. Most importantly, I will not let what is going on at my job get the best of me. I do not want to look the way I do anymore.
