Making Priorities

I, like most of us, am lazy. I would rather stay in bed when I don't need to, then get out of bed and exercise. I have come to the realization that if I don't exercise in the morning at the beginning of the day, most days I won't exercise, and the days that I do is less then stellar. I'm hoping that I'll kick it into gear so that I can at least end the month with a loss. I just need to do it. Aggh! I regret letting my self slip at the beginning of the month. I've been putting some effort into exercising this last week. I think I got in 3 days. Then I realize I allow my husband and kids to be excuses of how it makes it easy to put it off.
On my short cruise I was introduced to a detox program that I haven't started yet, due to not wanting to be disqualified. It's a 3 month routine that in based on a algae regiment. I hope that maybe if I can't get a good routine going soon that I might give it a try in October. Seeing how the rest of the gang has struggled along the way and can bounce back lessons the guilt some, but I can do better and I'm off to try a workout. Here's to hoping it won't get interrupted much by my kids.

I'm happy to report the 8 lbs that I gained on vacation came off easily. I'm glad to getting back to my regular routine with eating. It is working out for me. I will be working out extra this last week to see if I can end the month with a loss. Anything at this point I will be happy with. But we all know the more the scale says we lost the better we feel. Espically when it comes to this competition.
So I have a two sided feeling about encouraging you all to lose weight, first I would love all of you to meet your goals and win this compatition and over come our battle of the bulge. Getting healthier and happier. Really the other side of me gets kinda excited with the lack of effort I see from others cause then I feel like it increases my chances at winning this thing. So now because I've finally struggled this month it's left the door open for you all to surpass me. I don't know where you're at with you percentages so far, but I'm about 11% over all. Those of you that have maybe been 4% for the last two months have a chance to pass that. So I guess I'm calling you all out to help motivate us all to do better these last months and finish strong! How about it?

Some Statistics are true.

I'm really surprised with how quickly the weight can come back on when your not watching what you eat. I went on a cruise and they say that the average person gains 2 pounds a day! I found out how true it is. I am sad to report that my cruise was 4 days and I did gain those dreaded 8 pounds. I hope that I can work off these quickly so I can be back on track by the end of the month. I just hope that with the new "boot camp" exercises I learned while on the cruise will help me shed those dreaded pounds. Going camping this week and I will do all I can to not gain more. Last time I went camping I was able to lose weight, so it's possible. Let you know how is goes. Guess the final weigh in will be the tell all.

If one can lose weight while camping do you think one can lose it while on a cruise?! I hope so, or at least to maintain weight. I'm going with my Bestie Angie and her daughter Janessa who graduated from High school to celebrate that with her. It's only a 4 day cruise, I figure that if we make an effort to exercise that I can manage it. Other wise it's gonna be two a days for the rest of the month. When I get back from crusin' then i'm going camping! I love summer vacations and hope am gonna be sure not to let this hard work go down the drain. After all we are in this to change our lives right girls. Not just a yo-yo diet. I'll let you all know how it turns out.
