...with myself.

Have you ever worked hard to accomplish something? Have you ever let yourself get lazy and backslide? *raises my hand* I have. Ugh. Makes me mad to say it!

My friends, I fell off the healthier lifestyle bandwagon about 2 months ago. You see, this phenomenal trip I earned with Scentsy to the Dominican Republic happened...and I let myself enjoy the food and drinks. I know, I know. It's not really all that bad. BUT. But then I came home and kept eating the not-so-good-for-me foods and got caught up in the craziness of my life. Don't get me wrong, I loved every guilty second of it. Because yes, I did feel guilty for the first 2 weeks after I got back. 

The other week, AxMan and I decided that we both needed to start eating better (he had gained some weight back after losing a bunch while living with his sister - not the healthy way, the man never ate!). I weighed myself when we returned from Kansas City and was not shocked to see that I had gained 12 pounds in 2 months! AHHHHH! Nothing makes me more mad than knowing I failed myself. I put myself 12 pounds behind the ball AGAIN. Will I ever learn??

So I attempted to eat healthy last week. The week started off with good intentions, but then quickly went downhill with a whispered - let me treat you to dinner...and a failed fishing attempt to catch our dinner. ;) It all ended with a rousing day at the State Fair and we all know how good for you fair food is! hahaha

So here we are at the start of a new week...and I am happy to say that I stuck with my food plan for the day and even exercised! I have my meals mapped out for tomorrow as well, so that always makes me feel better. Yeah, yeah...I'm slightly type A organized list maker type. :p

Here's to hopefully getting back down past the 12 pounds I added back...and finally reaching my goal weight! I have a feeling there will be some fun and exciting things coming my way in the next year and I want to look and feel my best. *HUGE smile*

And now you know where I stand...and the fact that not only did I fall off the bandwagon, I apparently got ran over by it...more than once. One day I have faith that I'll learn from my mistakes! ha

To close - just wanna say "Hi hunny!" because I'm sure the mister is reading this since he knows I'm blogging tonight. Also, thanks for your support. And for eating your veggies tonight at dinner even though you'd have preferred more potato chips. Oh...and for only eating one pack of those delicious Dunkin' Sticks today for breakfast. hahahaha I love you!


  1. I have felt like that so many times but I am really proud of you for staying with it so far this week!
    that is awesoem!
    p.s. I invite you to join "The beauty series" on my blog starting on August 15th. Nine posts long, it will feature guest posts, many pictures, and a giveaway.
    Have a great day!

  2. Woah.... something fun coming next year huh? :) Good luck!

  3. That's rough, Erin. I'm sorry. I know how badly you want to lose this weight. But the important thing is that you realize you weren't living healthy. Now you can change it again! And what's better motivation than wanting to fit into a wedding dress? ;o) Heehee. I made a big assumption there, didn't I?

  4. The struggle to eat the good stuff. My weight has always yo-yoed so I kind of settled and figured if I can maintain a certain pound range, you know give or take a few for bloating around "that time of the month", then I'd be okay. I always hated working out because I didn't know what I was doing. I've found a few machines I like using and it helps to have a good playlist to make me keep pushing. One day at a time keeps you from going nuts.
