I am at 205. I started at 228 in March. I am so proud of what I have done so far. HOWEVER, two or three times before I lose down to where I am now. And for some reason I just stop dieting and exercising and I gain it all back and then some.
One reason is that when school gets out and the kids are home I get out of my routine. Right now I have a great routine. I jog 20 minutes each morning before we all go to school. Usually about 2.5 miles. I get off at noon and jog 20 more minutes and usually can get to 3 miles. (I am more awake in the afternoon so I run faster.
) Anywho, I have my meals all planned. Breakfast, take a snack to work, lunch, a snack with the kids after school (My snack, not theirs), etc.
Anyway I am getting anxious as school gets out in 4 weeks. I am only 5 pounds from Onderland and I don't won't to lose my momentum. How do you handle it when your "routine" gets interrupted? I am just anxious that if I get out of my routine I may not be able to find another one.
At least this time I know the change in routine is coming so I am already preparing my self mentally on how to make the changes I need. I just fear that I may fall into the lazy days of summer. I just want to make it to Onderland so I can get that Monkey off of my back! I think then I will realize If I can make it to Onderland then I can make it all the way to may goal. (That sounds like the song New York, New York, If I can make it there I'll make it anywhere!)
Just had to say this out loud so I can plan and stay on target!
Thanks for listening.
