I guess that is what happens when you get used to NOT doing something… you forget to do it when you’re supposed to do it. Like I am supposed to be posting a blog every night about my daily activity but I have forgotten the past couple nights. I’m not too busy to do it, I just forget until it is too late.
It is a perfect example of how not doing something can really screw things up. Just like me not exercising or eating right during my LASIK and holiday break. I chose to eat what I want, when I want and to sit on my butt as much as I wanted. In the end, that really took a toll on things. I gained weight, I lost energy and I lost my mojo. I can’t run as much and as far as I did before. I don’t look as good as I did before (not that I looked good, but I look even worse now) and the whole thing just took brought my back a few steps.
I am going to continue working, however, and realize that these bumps in the road will happen. Even if I get to where I want to be and look and feel as fit as I want I can possibly fall off the wagon and back into the food pile again. It really is a non-stop journey.
And Thursday was a continuation of that journey. I did my walking at work, counted my calories, wore my BodyMedia device and went to the gym. I did eat a donut, but I fit it within my calories which is exactly how it should be. Maybe I can lose weight faster and keep it off longer if I eat nothing but salad with vinaigrette and drink nothing but water, but why would I want to spend the next 50 years of my life eating and drinking that? That’s what I don’t get about people who choose to do that. Do you REALLY want to do it forever?
