Hello my readers. My apologies for the late blog this week. I was certain I had another week to go. But my how time flies. I wasn’t going to post a blog this week at all, once it was determined that I’m due to write one. You see, I’m feeling a bit like a fraud lately. I am truly struggling, mentally. And as much as my ever so patient personal trainer keeps trying to encourage me to get myself out of this mental block, I just can’t seem to.  Did I go too strong in the beginning, causing my mind to feel overwhelmed when my weightloss slowed down?  I don’t know. I’m not an expert. All I know is, if I don’t get out of this funk, butt-quick, I’m going to end up at rock bottom again. And I sure as shit don’t want to be in THAT place again!!!

I have been keeping up with my once a week training sessions. Still can’t get back to twice a week. There are too many other financial obligations going on in my household at the moment that have to take priority. I’ve also started back to walking around my neighbourhood. While it’s not gung-ho like it was back in January, it’s a start. And it works with my schedule and we all know that with life and work, it can be challenging getting other stuff scheduled in.

I don’t remember if I mentioned that I rejoined weight watchers. I’m still doing that, and I have a great accountability partner who I text throughout the week. She helps me stay on my meal plan at least!!  I haven’t been losing much. Maybe a pound over the whole summer. But I’m not gaining either. So I’m hoping that now that I’m back doing some walking (and I’m not strolling…I’m actually doing a brisk pace), that my numbers will start going down again.

I also have one more piece of motivation. I joined an adult beginner tap class this year. It starts next week. And I believe it’s either December or January when we start getting measured for our costumes for competition and recital. So once that happens, I most definitely won’t want to gain. How embarrassing would THAT be?!??

Anyway I really have nothing new to report and I guess I better get my act together because you guys are going to start getting bored with me.

Until next time,

Stay healthy
