I've Had It!

I'm truly disgusted with myself.  I let myself gain 12 pounds over the course of a few months!  My excuse at the time was that I was allowed to cut myself some freedom from the gym and slack in regards to diet because...

...we're so busy packing.  I'll get back on it once we move
...we're so busy unpacking.  I'll get back on it once we are settled
...I'm so tired from all of this packing and unpacking.  I deserve a Starbucks coffee and treat.
...we're so busy decorating.  I'll get back to it once the house is finished.

Well folks, I've reached my limit.  Is a house ever truly "finished?"  Am I ever not busy?  If I wait any longer I will need a whole new wardrobe.  I even know all of the fancy tricks.  Wear dresses and Spanx and stretchy workout gear on the weekend.  Then you don't realize how fat you are. 

Unfortunately, I will never be the girl who doesn't have to watch what she eats.  And I will never be the girl who doesn't have to workout. 

I hate being this girl! 

Once I reach my tipping point though, which is evidently 12 pounds and super tight pants, I will do something about it.  I joined the gym right by our new house and am trying to improve my diet.  In order for me to be successful, I have to fully jump in right way to something to distract myself from failing, so hello...

...Couch 2 5K
...My Fit Foods

Giving both of these a try currently and will report back.  (I know how to workout and eat right on my own, but it's so, so, so boring).  Food and workout programs are my answer.  Which is why over the course of my life, I've tried so many different types!  Maybe I have a mild case of ADD.

Any tips, advice or experience with either of these programs?

And because laughing burns calories:

  3. Hi there... I came across your blog awhile ago (can't remember when) and have been checking in ever since and finally have to comment because I am feeling the EXACT same way! I use the same excuses in regards to why I can eat yummy things like cupcakes and it has completely caught up with me. I tried Couch 2 5K for about three weeks and while I did become a better runner, the weather was not cooperative! BEST OF LUCK TO YOU and I will be checking in to see how it's going... and perhaps coming out of the woodwork to comment again =)

  4. I loved couch to 5k! One of my fav tools was the DJ Beatsmith Podrunner intervals podcast. They do the timing for you and spur you to change pace with music changes. So awesome!
