Messing Up

I was chatting (oh hell, I am still, while writing) with an old, but dear friend today. She asked how things were going (workout/weight-wise) and I laughed out loud in my office. Going? They are going no where, quickly. I hurt my back a few months ago and while I'm feeling SOOOO much better, I'm still being careful and a little protective. I have holidays in Vermont coming up too and honestly, I don't want to start a new routine and not be able to get into it while in VT. January will be trying as well as I will be spending a week in Dallas for work - and that's always disruptive, tiring, and there's not a lot of time for the gym.

I've been doing a 30 day squat challenge (HELLO 70 today!), and feeling good, but I miss the hard workouts, the ones that left me sore for the next few days. I'm not taking very good care of myself. I'm getting by each day. Work is stressful and that falls into life. I'm making really awesome excuses for why I'm not at the gym daily. Oh, ok ok... some days, I don't EVEN make an excuse. I just don't go. I've put on almost 30lbs that I lost. SICKENING. (and yes, that's probably the 1st time I've publicly admitted it)

We all mess up. I mess up ...daily. Work, life, working out, sleeping. How you rebound from it is what matters. It might be a momentary mess up, or, like me, a few MONTH mess up. I'm going to get back on the proverbial horse in the new year and do things right. Planning meals, stocking up the kitchen with GOOD things, having RTD protein drinks avail when I'm sick of making my own.

For me, I have to go back to not finding or USING excuses. I have to find my own inspiration, within, and I have to take care of myself again. My friend asked me if I blog when I'm messing up. Hahahha. No. Or I do, but it's about something else. So, I'm also vowing to admit/blog when I'm messing up. I find I don't blog as much when I feel crappy - but this will be a way to be more accountable.

And, on a happier note... I'm working on a new design and new "take" on my blog. Yes, I'll still be blogging about working out/losing weight, but I'm going to write about life. Because my life is WAY more then just those two things. Check back soon for updates!!!
