Yes…. the holidays got the best of me. I stopped going to the gym, I binged on eating and drinking and I said yes to more desserts in one month than I did all year. While I enjoyed every minute of it, my body was wondering WTF?!
Sadly, my goal of losing 20 pounds did not come to fruition. YET. In fact, it increased. I had lost some weight but then put it all back on and then some in that gluttonous month we call December.
Yup, that’s my life at 41.
But I’m not gonna cry about it. I’m already back to the gym (four days this week!) and though I didn’t go 100% dry, I’ve cut my wine intake by like 85%. FOR REALS. It hasn’t been easy but my body has enjoyed every minute of it.
And yes, to the big fat question in the room – I have reset because I took a step back rather than forward.
But with this fresh new year beginning, what better reason than to start over and get down to business, with a refreshed mindset and a fiercer determination?
I mean, this is life, no? Making choices and learning from them while dealing with the consequences?
Instead of thinking I failed, I decided to look at this like I made some poor decisions but I acknowledge it and I’m paying the price.
Live. Learn. Evolve.
147 and counting down… stay tuned!
