Are you on a weight loss journey? How are you doing?
Perhaps you’ve wondered, why isn’t QueenB updating us on her Nutrisystem progress? Perhaps you haven’t. The fact of the matter is, I haven’t had any progress in just over a month. I’ve already told you all I’m an emotional eater (are there really people who aren’t? I’d like to know the secrets) and while I have been aware of things, I’ve also had some personal things going on and got derailed. When I derail, as I’ve said before, I kind of tend to REALLY derail. I mean if you are going to screw up, screw up big, right? (I kid, I kid. I haven’t been that bad). Things kind of got rough a week or two before the anniversary of my mom’s death, a (distant) family member sent me a very nasty email attacking me ( for many things that I had nothing to do with, that happened before I was even born!), but combined with a few other things, I spiralled downward, fast.
My Nutrisystem rep and constant cheerleader and supporter Meredith was very quick to reassure me that I could continue on, and I did get back on track, although then Irene hit CT and we lost power and I lost all of my frozen foods, which meant I had to kind of improvise. I’m working on getting back on track yet again, this week. I WILL get back on track, but man. I would really like for myself to STOP derailing and get focused already.
The bad news? I gained about 8 pounds back. The good news? I only gained about 8 pounds back. I’m not happy with it but at least I’m working hard to undo the damage and get back on track, right? I want this. I need this. I’m DOING this.
I also did 4 whole pushups last night. Me. Jello-armed me. I did them. Maybe I’ll do 4 more tomorrow night. I’m fairly certain my arms would shatter if I tried to do it again tonight and aren’t we supposed to let our muscles rest?
I’m also going to start a 5k program when the kids go back to school. Logistics aren’t working in favor of that this week, but come Tuesday, after the big kids are dropped off at 8:30 am, Baby B and I will be jammin’ to the tunes and starting program. Those of you who live locally, my apologies for the lovely vision that I will be….but you will need to find a way to deal. Because I will be out there, and I will be out there again and again and again until I figure out a way to stop hating exercise and tolerating it (I’d like to LOVE exercise but, this is me, and that’s probably not anytime soon. So we’ll shoot for tolerating).
