I hate to say that “I’m back”, because I don’t feel as though I really went anywhere. However, here I am. It’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’m still on my journey, down 56 pounds now, 7 pounds away from being in another century! Pretty excited about that, but I haven’t had much time to celebrate. My life has been on a whirlwind, between work being crazy and school starting, I’ve had practically no time for myself.
Although I’m on the right track now, I’ve had a few setbacks that when looking back I shouldn’t really call them setbacks, maybe disguised victories. I have been put in a few situations where I was all but forced to conform to my old habits but all considering, I came out pretty much unscathed. These events were basically out-of-town work conferences (3, back to back, 1 week long each), where there was one meal option, which did not include a healthy option. I avoided eating anything the first day, but quickly came to my senses after waking up on day two starving. So, I portioned, substituted and made the best decisions that I could. When I finally came home, I had gained 3 pounds. I guess that’s what 3 weeks of no exercise and processed foods will do to you.
But, now I’m back on track and I’m excited to see the next weight bracket — FINALLY. It’s been a long time coming. I can’t wait to settle in and get updated on what everyone’s been up too. I miss losing myself in everyone’s stories.
