Rough Start

My "Summer Slimdown" is off to a rough start. Don't expect to see a Fat-Free Friday post from me tomorrow - I don't even want to know what the scale says!!! Ulgh...

Part of my struggling has been due to some stress that I've been experiencing lately, which is causing me to eat my feelings. And I have a LOT of feelings. I know, I know...excuses, excuses. BUT...we also got some very good news this week: my husband passed his licensing exam, so after years of working as an apprentice, he is FINALLY a licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineer!!! So of COURSE we had to go out and celebrate. And you can't celebrate without an appetizer, entrée, dessert and wine, now can you?

So, what I've learned is...when I feel bad, I want to eat, and when I feel good, I want to eat. And that's a problem.

But, I feel like today is going to be the start of some better weeks ahead! I went for a run last night (and pushed myself, despite wanting to stop every darned second!) and have eaten really well so far today. And I am determined to re-lose these pesky 10 pounds. Because I can't wait to look like this again:


  1. I think you look awesome! Your positivity is infectious too. :)

  2. A fresh start! I am a teacher and have been off all summer. The beginning of the summer was great! I was up and at it early and regularly. July came and its been downhill since. Back to school on the 12th and back to 4:30 am wakeups to workout!
