Fitness Sunday: Week 28


I believe the last time I told you my weight I was down to 215. Well…today I am up to 219. The stress and anxiety became my excuse to not care about my health.

I was too tired to work out.

I’m so stressed I need a whole bag of Swedish Fish.

Maybe if I eat this chocolate it will give me more energy.

It won’t matter if I skip my work out today.

I deserve this bowl of icecream.


The worst part of all of this is that I had started seeing results. I could tell my clothes were fitting better. My stomach was shrinking and my muscles were growing. I didn’t need as much at meal time to fill myself. I was eating until I was satisfied instead of stuffed.

Then I messed it all up and the only person I have to blame is myself.

But it’s going to be okay. Because I see the errors of my ways. I see where I have destroyed all my progress. I am not happy with the changes that have happened since I started slacking. So what am I going to do? Get back on that band wagon that I fell off of.

I will pay more attention to what I am eating and I am cutting out my sweets again. I will allow myself to drink other things other than water, but I will have a liter of water with every meal. Then I can drink other things.

I have to get things back on track, because when I take control over what I do to my body, I feel that I have more control of my life and maybe that is the reason I have had so many anxiety/panic attacks.

I have until next Fitness Sunday to make a little progress and I won’t let myself down. I can’t let myself down. I want to be at my healthiest in my 30’s and I don’t want to wait until the end of my 30’s to make it happen.

    This sounds just like how I was feeling today, making excuses grabbing something to eat from the fridge every now and then. I weigh about as much as you do, I guess. The Pounds/kg converting still confuses me. It was so good to read your post. Thank you! I just put away my chocolates. 😀

    Feel better soon Heather. I know the feeling. Last week, I spent 3 days being too busy with work and feeling sorry for myself to exercise. I did make it up by exercising Friday and Saturday though. It comes and goes in ebbs and flows. No matter what, just making one good decision regarding either food or exercise is one more small victory for you.
