Woke up Saturday morning feel SUPER Sluggish (mind you #teambootcamp completed quite the work out Friday)- I slept through Saturday’s bootcamp session (note to self: tendencies that happen when you abort your health mission!!). Went to a spinning class instead and then headed to work for a few hours.

Summary of the tales from the weekend: I have got to get a grip on happy hour. I keep thinking about the infamous quotes people make pertaining to not allowing one mistake to completely capsize your ship. While I do take notice to some of the challenges in my eating patterns for this past weekend, I will celebrate a few notes of progress:
- No Late Night Slice!!!
- Kept with my goal of light liquor and no fancy mixes (just lime and and a splash of OJ!)
- Kept track of what I was eating (regardless of how “good” or “bad” it was for me)
- danced my butt off (helllooo instant leg workout and calorie burn)
- I got on that darn scale this morning to face my reality of a #twerkteam weekend! hm! 🙂
Spent some time last night re-thinking through my goals and talking with myself about how what I’m hoping to achieve here is an emotional, physical, and financial commitment. I shared a piece of my vulnerability with my trainer, which I think was an important step toward continue progress. All 3 (emotional, physical and financial commitments) are required for this journey to continue to move in the direction I’m headed…not turning back. staying out of that rear view mirror and looking through that windshield, folks- I’m moving forward.
Guess what??? I’m flipping proud of myself. Ha! who would’ve thunk it.
