I'm still struggling to get back into the swing of things. I feel like I'm failing miserably. I've lost focus. When Chris was gone, I used that time to really focus on myself. Now, it's like I have switched gears. I'm not sure exactly what it is. Chris and I are doing well for the most part. We are active. That hasn't changed. The problem is my diet. I've just been giving into my cravings, and Chris is not good at telling me no, so he goes out and gets whatever I ask for. Not good! I have not been recording my food at all. Well, Chris is back to work now which is good, because when he's gone, I feel a little stricter with my food choices. I hope I don't sound like I'm blaming him. I'm not. There's just something different when we are together. I'm just so relaxed when he's around. It's almost like I'm always on vacation mode, where you just do whatever feels good at the time. Since he's back on base today, I'm using this time to focus and get back on track. I went to my first Pilates class today. It was sooo hard. I felt so weak compared to everyone else. The instructor gave options for how to do certain moves... level 1, 2, and 3. I always had to do level 1, and it was still hard for me. I just felt so pathetic. I felt like I've made no real progress since I've been at this the last 4 months. I'll be taking 5 classes a week. Mondays and Thursday, I'll be taking a "Bodyworks and Abs" class. It's a dumbbell workout that also includes spurts of cardio. At the end, we do Ab work, which I'm terrible at. I have no core strength at all. I've taken the class twice, and I always quit at the end during the Ab portion. I just can't do the exercises at all. I took a zumba class yesterday which was good. I'll also be taking a spin class on Friday. I hope I can keep up. So, now I will record my food for the first time in a long time. :)

Good morning. I haven't been on Fat Secret at all lately. My main focus has been to spend time with Chris since he just returned home. Yes, I'm off track, but I'm slowly easing back to reality. We've been on kind of vacation mode, just going out and having a good time, enjoying each other's company. Next week he goes back to work, which means I need to get back to my life which includes eating right, logging my meals, cooking, cleaning, ect. As for working out, that hasn't really stopped. I signed up at LA Fitness and got two really great workouts in. I had a free session with a personal trainer, and the next day Chris and I did some weight lifting, and then I took a class called Body Works and Abs. It was so hard. I made it through most of the class, but I just couldn't keep up with the ab workout, so I quit a little early. I'll just keep going, and I'm sure I'll do a little better each time. Well now I'm sick, and I'm pissed about it. I don't want anything interfering in what I'm trying to do right now. I'm going to the doctor today, and hopefully I'll be better very soon. One great thing that happened was that when I went to the gym on Sunday to workout with the personal trainer, he said he wanted to do an assessment, which included weighing me. I have not been strict on my diet this month at all, and I've been avoiding the scale. Chris and I had gone out for a steak dinner the night before. I told the trainer that I had gotten down to 216, but I'm sure I've gained weight because of the way I've been eating. He asked how much I think I weigh. I said probably about 220-222. Well, to my surprise, I weighed in at 216! Wow lol. The next morning I weighed myself at home, and I was down to 215. Weighed 217 yesterday though, so like I said, back to reality. Have a great day people. I hope it's sunny where you are. It's a beautiful day here in Georgia :)

Went and signed up at LA Fitness. I'm really excited about all the classes. I'm still going to take zumba, but they also have cycling, and kick boxing, and body works, which is a light dumbbell workout. I've written out a schedule. Going to do weights 3 times a week instead of two. On the weekends I'll be hiking or biking with Chris. So, I'm gonna bust my butt, and have fun bc I love all this stuff. Tomorrow morning, I'm meeting with a personal trainer at the gym. He's just gonna show me around and do an assessment.

I've been feeling really crappy physically today. I've been having a pinching pain in my left lower abdomen. I had no idea what it was. I was just about to take a muscle relaxer, and then I went to the bathroom to discover that aunt flow is early. Great. Whatever. I'm watching a movie. I'm going to allow myself a Skinny Girl cocktail and some dark chocolate. :)

Although I'm happy to have my sweetheart home, it's not motivating me to get back on track as I had hoped. I'm so comfortable with him, and we've been in the mood to celebrate, and to me that always includes food... good food. He of course has a bigger appetite than me since he's a man. He snacks a lot, and he eats larger potions, and I'm finding myself eating when he eats instead of when I'm hungry. I'm really worried because I'd been screwing up for a few days before he got here, and then his flight was delayed, so I ended up staying in a hotel the night before he arrived. I didn't want to drive around to find healthy food because I was alone and thinking about safety, so I needed to get dinner and get to my room before it got dark. I ended up ordering a chicken burrito plate from the Mexican restaurant across the street. It was two burritos and rice and beans. It also came with tortilla chips... about double the portion I really needed and loaded with cheese. I didn't touch the chips, but I ate everything else. I'm just slipping back to my old ways, and I'm really nervous about it. I've been off track for about a week now. I also haven't worked out lately. My zumba contract is up, so I can't go to that class anymore. I'm going to LA Fitness today to sign up, and I'm praying I like their classes. So today I'm getting back on track. Back to journaling, logging my food, and working out. I HAVE to do this! I'm not giving up this time. I'm going to plan all my meals today and stick to it.
