These Are My Confessions

In an effort to be open and honest on my blog and post the good and the bad, I have to make a confession about the last 3 weeks.  I've done horrible with my eating and working out!  I don't know what it is about being out of my routine, but I didn't make good choices.  There are all kinds of excuses that I could make.  I worked from the moment I woke up until the time I went to sleep, I ate out for almost every meal, etc., etc.  But it comes back to choices and I didn't make the best ones.

Before I went out of town, I had a plan for trying to eat right and workout at the hotel gym.  I took protein bars and packed all my workout clothes.  And I didn't workout 1 time in 3 weeks!  Ughh!  My choices weren't horrible, but they weren't good either.  I definitely snacked way too much and ate things that I wouldn't normally eat.  I was more active than I normally am, so that's good, but other than that I didn't do too good.  I still have a lot to learn and need to realize that even if I don't have everything planned and I'm not in control of my schedule, I still have the ability to choose.  When I'm at home and have my days and meals planned out things are relatively easy for me, but when i'm away it's so hard.

The good news is that I am back and ready to start losing again!  I've scheduled my workouts this week and I'm planning my meals so I will make good food choices.  I'm traveling again this weekend, but I definitely plan to eat better while I'm away.

I've been neglecting my blog while I've been out of town so I have lots of blog posts and things to catch up on.

Hope you all have been doing great!


  1. Confessions are good for the soul, your staying accountable! We all screw up. Who said we gotta be perfect or will be perfect 100% of the time? Glad to see you back and on track!

  2. you're human :) we all have times when we make not-so-great choices, but the important part is to acknowledge and learn from them. You're doing just fine. Welcome back to the boat, girlfriend. I fell out a few weeks ago, but I'm back in, too.

  3. We all have our moments... believe me! Lol. Its all good, your ready to jump back into routine. And its a learning process. You'll get it next time.

  4. all you can do is recognize it and get back on the weightloss train! I still wub you!

  5. Routine is a bandster's best friend. It's difficult when that gets screwed up to stay on plan. :)

  6. Glad you're back! And let it slide off your back, you just said you were more active overall, which is just as great as working out for 30 minutes per day. :) (At least in MY opinion.)

  7. It's all good Andrea - look to the positives! Onwards and upwards - active wise... and onwards and downwards - scale wise ;)
    Perhaps you're in need for a fill given your weight seems to be stabilizing? Just a thought :)
