I think I'm on a diet break (Diet Fatigue)
I have been doing fairly well losing about 44 pounds since January, but the month of June was hard. I worked at my kids day camp the first week so I didn't exercise and had some fast food dinners because of time. Then I was on a 9 day road trip with theme park food and family treasured recipies and limited exercise. Then July 4th weekend with BBQ and burgers for the weekend. I have not gained back any weight (the scale did go up, but it has gone back down - I have only lost 2 pounds since June 3rd) and have worked out 2x in the last 3 days. I enjoy the exercise but not the diet right now. I want to eat and not healthy all the time. Having the kids home all day, everyday isn't helping. Cooking meals for them and then for me - sorry my special needs son isn't eating grilled chicken and salads! I am thinking of maintaining over the summer or at least taking the pressure off the scale numbers (provided they don't go up!). My fitness goals still remain and I don't want to the lose the ground I have made in running - hope to finish the C25K next week!
I guess I want permission to take a break... or do I need a butt kick to get back in gear before I slide into regaining all my weight.
