A conversation with myself...

I have been really sick twice in the last 3 months from cold and sinus infections. And I have been feeling like poop and tired a lot. So I sat myself down and had a stern 'come to Jesus' meeting with myself.  It went something like this:

My body: Look chick, this isn't working so well. You know better.
Me: Shut up. I don't feel good. My jeans are making me uncomfortable and I want a cookie.
My body: Are you flippin kidding me???? What do I gotta do to get your attention? You wanna feel bad all the time?? And don't you want to have a baby sometime soon? You gonna feed your kid crappy food???
Me: *paying attention* Your right, lets do this...

So I went grocery shopping last night and got lots of fruits and veggies. I found my bottle of vitamins that I bought but never opened several months ago. I located my running shoes in the back of the closet and laid out my exercise clothes for tomorrow morning (today being fast Sunday). Then I logged into after being gone for almost a year, entered my current weight, and saw this little beauty:

Terrific. Yeah, that is a widget I would want to add, right? So now I have to lose those 26 pounds to break even with the last good place. Doh!
So why am I sharing all of this? Well I guess for motivation for myself. I have put it out there in public. And also so you, my friends and family, will understand if I don't eat that yummy piece of pie at Christmas dinner. Or if I do eat the pie and then start running laps around your house, now you know  ;)
Anyone else had this struggle and want to offer advice? Leave me a comment below.



  1. You can do this! I am using My Fitness matters not what you use, as long as you are tracking & paying attention. It's "ok" to have a piece of pie, just don't have a large piece of EVERY type. If you are anything like me, if you tell yourself you can't have something at all, it will be all you focus on. Just practice portion control! I usually only eat 1/2 of what I order when we eat out & eat the other 1/2 for another meal. And of course get active. You can do this & I will cheer you on! Just keep putting it out there! I'm here for ya!

  2. Thanks for the encouragement Tasha! :)
