Recommit

14 Mar

It has been three months since I started my 2008 Lifestyle Improvement Plan.

Overall, I am doing pretty well.  I am eating reasonably, allowing some small splurges, and getting in a lot more exercise than EVER before.   I am definitely proud of how it has gone so far.  I have had a lot of help along the way in terms of encouragement from family, friends, and even the occasional book!

That being said, I can feel myself slipping now.  I am allowing more than just splurges lately… a little too much snacking a little too often.  Though I am still making it to the gym at least four days a week, I am feeling the pull of “don’t go” more than ever.  When I weighed in this morning, I had gained two pounds.  It seems like the overall trend lately is GAIN, not LOSE.

I intend to spend the weekend relaxing as much as possible, and being reasonable if not ridiculous.  And then on Monday morning, I will recommit.

On Monday morning, I promise to pack my gym clothes.  I promise to bring my breakfast and lunch, and to not allow more than one mid-morning and one mid-afternoon snack.  I promise to eat fruit for at least one of those snacks, or for breakfast.  I promise to keep pushing down this road to healthy and happy and strong.
