Have You Seen A Wagon?

Well, I haven’t blogged in a week.

I haven’t eaten well in two weeks.

And I haven’t exercised in 3-4 weeks.

I have officially fallen off the proverbial wagon.

There are no excuses. I know what I need to do. I just haven’t done it.

I’m going to do my best to eat well this week and try not to blow it in Chicago. I am going to splurge on a red velvet cupcake at Lollapalooza though. I’ve been dreaming of it ever since I saw the food vendor list.

Speaking of the Lolla food vendors, I went through and found some great eats that won’t be horrible for me. There’s a place selling fish tacos….sign me up!

This post was going to be about what I’ve done wrong all week and what not. But I know what I did and explaining it all here isn’t going to make it go away.

It is safe to say I’ve lost my motivation lately. I’ve gotten lazy. It’s easier to eat out than cook. It’s easier to sleep instead of going for a walk or run. It’s easier to ignore everything I’ve learned than to follow what I know is good.

So here’s to a new week. My goals for this week is to track what I eat and to get my gallon of water in each day. No more of this half assing I’ve been doing lately.

I still have a lot of weight to lose. And dang it, I wanna lose it! I wanna be a healthier version of me.

Now I’m off to throw the cookie dough away.

    I sat on my wagon months ago and broke the dang thing. I need to climb onto a new one…

    So you took a little break. You’ve been working so hard and done so well! You know what to do, and when you really want to, you’ll get back to it! I’m pulling for you!

    The good news is that no matter how bad you break the wagon, there is always another to replace it! Now stay on it! Don’t stop blogging just because you fall off everyonce in awhile. It’s humbling to have to get on the blog and tell everyone (including yourself) that you ate 2 bagels for breakfast, chips for lunch, a buffet for dinner… You haven’t done anything that we all haven’t done. It’s the living in denial and not blogging or journaling that will get us! Keep positive!

    Yeah, into the trash that cookie dough goes!!!

    I am so with you, Brooke. I wish it were just as easy/fun to workout as it is to relax…but it’s not. Kudos to you for rising up. I’m in the process of doing that now.

    And yes, you should enjoy that Red Velvet Cupcake, too.

    You know, Brooke, I so admire your will and how you don’t quit — even when you slack off and/or things get hard. You own that wagon!!

    I am happy to see you have a positive attitude about finding that wagon and climbing on!! Good luck :)

    Girl, that’s the awesomeness of a new relationship that booted your arse off the wagon :-) It happens to the best of us!

    But really, you can do this! I think you’re making reasonable commitments for Chi-Town, and when you get back you can go back to all the things that got you this far!

    At least you are admitting the falling off the wagon and not continuing to not exercise and eat like shit for the next six months.

    My advice is have fun in Chicago – and try to think about the event and people and not the food – oh, except for the red velvet cake – that sounds amazing!

    We can do this Brooke – you have no idea how you motivate me when I want to give up my bike rides, or when I want to hit the snooze in the morning – you inspire people and you don’t even know it :D
