we went on vacation (camping for a week) and i fell off the diet/exercise wagon. i fully intended to get back to counting calories and exercising when i got back from camping but when i got home weighing myself every morning wasn't something i really felt like getting back too.
Exercising 5 days a week? I'd rather go play with my kids. i haven't gotten back to counting calories either. the good news is i haven't fallen into eating junk food i eat the same food as before just not tracking so my weight hasnt started to go up just is not going down anymore (lol) ive been like this for a month now.
just really lacking motivation to get out and get going to be diligent and monitor myself. i went hiking for 3 miles the other day finally and when i woke up the next day my body felt like a giant bruse, now i don't want to do anything! lol... there is my confession.

Remember playing with the kids is a good form of exercise (assuming you mean actual play and not video games)

It's always hard getting back on the straight ans narrow, but you'll get there.

42" jeans(25/01/2013) 40"(28/02/2013) 38"(20/03/2013) 36"(25/05/2013)
Down from 60" waist jeans since June 21st 2012.

Still keeping to my 26" jeans, but they are too tight for comfort. too many tasty things in the US, and over Xmas.

Onwards and Downwards! Smile

I hear you. Getting back from vacation is rough. If you didn't gain over vacation, that's actually pretty good!

That first day restarting is always the worst... if you cant get in the exercise just start with the food, one thing at a time... i cant say i can keep to five days a week myself, that takes some determination.
