Weight Cycle

Yesterday, I was having a short little email convo with Jess and I became extremely annoyed with myself.

If you have been reading long enough, you are fairly familiar with my weight-loss journey. Over several years, I've lost 100+ lbs. It has taken a lot of starts and stops.... a lot of hard work.... and a lot of commitment (though, sometimes, that commitment wasn't always there).

Last Summer, I was at my lowest weight ever.... a whopping 120 lbs from my highest weight. And, I still had about 15 more that I wanted to lose to be at my goal.

Then, Fall happened. A lot of things came into play, but the short end of it is that I managed to gain about 10-15 lbs (depends on the week, really). And, it's still there.

And, I'm super annoyed with myself, because I *KNOW* what I need to do. I've been tracking my points very well for the past two weeks, but I *KNOW* I need more. In order to lose weight, I have to work out no less than 4-5 times a week. That is all there is to it.

I worked out twice last week. Not going to cut it.

I worked out on Sunday, but didn't yesterday and won't today (I have to work until 9pm tonight and didn't get up early to do it). Basically, I know that I need to go hard for the rest of the week.

I'm seriously annoyed with myself. Again, I know what I need to do. I want to do it, but I don't.

I want to lose 30 lbs by August 1st. Five months.

That is do-able. It won't be easy, but it is do-able.

One of my best friends is getting married on August 3rd.

I turn 30 on August 25th.

I'm going on a cruise on August 31st.

This needs to happen.

And, I need accountability. So, here's my declaration........

Every single Tuesday, from now until then, I HAVE to post my workouts.

When I do well, I need a virtual pat on the back.

When I don't do well, I need a virtual kick in the behind.

Anyone up for the job?

Posting about it is a great way to keep yourself accountable! I will try to remember to annoy you about posting :) You Can Do It!!

Both of us are going on a, dare I say the WORD!, diet and yes, we know we'll need a lot of praise between us :)

Yup. I'll kick your ass. I'll email you all the time and ask if you worked out. HAH.

You can so do this.
