I’m Baaaccckkk…

Hello Speech Bubble

Sorry for the hiatus.  I just haven’t been feeling the writing vibe, or any vibe for that matter.  I am overwhelmed, under slept, blah blah blah, but I am sure you really don’t want to hear about how I am struggling, post after post, and so I took a little break.  From weight loss, from reading, from manicures, from myself.  Except, you really can’t do that, can you?  Because when you stop taking care of yourself, everything else just starts to feel off.  You’d think I would have learned this by now.  I understand it in my head…I am trying to get my heart to follow suit.

Anyhow, one thing that is helping me to become re-motivated is the new Weight Watchers Freestyle Plan.  I am one of those people (don’t present that you aren’t, too) who gets super excited over plan changes/adjustments, etc.  They always seem to give me the little kick in the rump that I need.  To be honest, I always felt there was something missing since re-joining after having the baby.  I was back in school (to earn my admin. degree) and then pregnant soon after, so I missed the whole Smart Points roll out.  I know that many people struggled with the transition–especially when their beloved cookies went from four to eleven points.  When I rejoined, I assumed my lack of motivation/true success was my own fault.  While I still wholeheartedly agree that’s a huge part of it, I also feel as though the newer plan lacked the livability that the previous one had.

Something that is currently getting in my way is all of the events of November/December.  I feel like I just don’t want to get started (that’s not entirely true…I want to get started, I just can’t get out of my own way long enough to make any sort of progress).  I keep pushing everything in the area of self-care/weight loss/etc. to tomorrow, next week, Tuesday, January, etc.  Listen, I am a realist.  I started this blog about a year ago.  I’ve pushed it off so much, I can soon have myself a little anniversary party to celebrate all of my tomorrow plans.

Something’s gotta give and that something is ME!  I know this, but it hasn’t quite set in yet.  How does the saying go? Slow and steady wins the race…at this point, I have to be taking the lead!
