I found this pic over at Fit This, Girl! In her post she remind us that "EVERYONE is busy and it's not an excuse." I have been queen of the slackers lately. My plethora of excuses for slacking include but are not limited to: brother visiting, the ladies birthdays this month (CAKEand ICE CREAM!!!), my dad visiting (a whole bunch of emotional baggage unearthed with that visit), time of the month, and my virgo tendencies (if it's not done perfect I might as well give up).
But that's just what all these are....EXCUSES!!!! I need to get off my but and get out there. No if's, and's or but's. The alternative is to continue my wicked ways of no working out and eating craptastically. NO WAY! I'm already feeling the ill effects of my over-indulgence. Today T and I took our "before" progress pics and did our measurments. I haven't weighed in a while....up 6 pounds since the half marathon. It's time to check back into reality and lay out my plan. I have a rough idea of how things are going to look around here at Awaken the Strength until 10/10/10 and will post my plan tomorrow.
Until then, here's my "in-your-face" (pardon the pun!) reminder of how far I've come and what 50 pounds looks like.
So, to end this post on a super positive note....33 readers?!? I feel pretty honored that you all stop by and check out that latest and greatest developments over here at Awaken the Strength. I hope to keep you all enthralled as I tackle Portland. Tomorrow is an 8 mile and I've got a pretty good route planned!
