RAMPAGE BACK ON!
Started today. My neck is still tender, but getting better. I went for a 4 mile run- it was hard just because my neck is still super tight and I couldn't even look over my shoulder to check traffic. But afterwards I felt much better- my muscles just needed to be let loose a little. I've been drinking my water like a crazy and trying so hard to watch what I eat- it's hard because my co-workers want to go out to eat, and my friends and roommate want to go out to eat...so I'm always eating out. I mean, let's be honest- I SHOULD pack a lunch and eat at home- it's healthier. But I'm probably not going to do that for long. I can say it and say it, but I always end up breaking down and giving in. Don't get me wrong- it's no one's fault but my own that I'm in this position. Part of this battle is realizing where you're at and learning to deal with what sacrifices you're willing to make and what you're not willing to make. Maybe you find more success there- I like to think so. So now I'm trying to make healthier choices AND eat less of the foods I'm choosing in restaurants and out. That why I can still go out and enjoy the social part of things, but I can hopefully still lose a little weight. I hope I can maintain the discipline! To me, it takes extra discipline to do these things. #1 to choose a healthier option is never fun to me. #2 to eat less...well that's against everything in my nature. I literally have to focus the whole time I'm eating NOT to eat everything- and to listen to my body, etc. We all know I have a hard time doing these things long term...but I'm hoping since it's only 3 weeks I might be able to do it.
Anyway...I'm excited to be back on track. I thought about it on my run and I thought, it feels good. All day long I've had a little more pep in my step. I know it's weird; most people hate dieting and being on such a hard journey. I hate it sometimes too...but right now I'm loving it! I'm happy to be back on point, be responsible and to be paying attention to what I'm doing. Things are looking good friends...looking real good. I'm feeling really optimistic and happy right now about my rampage over the next few weeks. :)
Okay lovies! Have a great weekend- love you all....
