(again) getting back on the wagon.

I haven’t been able to come up with a witty or even all that good opening for this post so I will just jump into it: I have to go meet with clients tomorrow evening to go over work that I did for them and explain the next part of the process so it all goes smoothly. The meeting part isn’t the problem (generally), it’s what I’ll be wearing to the meeting that may be problematic and I’m nervous about. Gulp.

You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting as many photos of myself lately. I think a big part of that is because I haven’t felt very good about my outfits and that makes it hard to feel like I should be photographed. Reasons include such things as, “I only know where 3 pairs of pants and a handful of shirts are” and “I don’t feel comfortable in my own skin let alone some of  the clothes I have access to at the moment.” Luckily, I’ve been able to unpack a bit and have been slowly organizing so I have more options.

But I’m still not super comfortable (which might factor into this post) in what’s available which means one of three things: Suck it up and do something about it, hopefully being more comfortable in short order; do nothing and be uncomfortable; OR go shopping.

We just bought a house, clothing funds are seriously limited right now.

These past couple months of house packing, remodeling, and organizing have had my albeit small amount of focus on things other than what I was putting into my body. We’ve heavily relied on easy foods or eating out and if I’m choosing for just me, I pick foods that don’t make the heart burn flare up. (Luckily? Unfortunately? Ice cream and froyo don’t make it worse…you might guess where I went with this fact.) I’ve eaten a lot of delicious crap lately.

Excuses? Admitting to myself that I need to reset again? Does it matter what you call it?

Things are calming down again and there’s absolutely no reason that I can’t get my tush back in gear. I’m going to track my foods again and I’ll try to do more things off my Mission Move More Pinterest board. They’re better than doing nothing, right?

This week my goal is to move more, eat less than last week, and work on a first 3lbs. Which I hope to turn into a second and then a third, etc.

I’ve gathered a little momentum this week already teaching swimming lessons yesterday and tonight. Let’s see if I can keep it up.

About Court

I spend a lot of time on the pool deck and making treats in my kitchen amongst other things.

  1. There has been a lot of silly things happening over the past 2 weeks… just stress and drama and I couldn’t deal.. I gave in.. I made awful choices… I’m in day 6 of a 14 day reset…

    I am with you friend, I have eaten a lot of delicious crap recently… (Oh, we got a hoopla by us, aka: build your own froyo and that has been AWFUL for me)….

    Just take it a day at a time. Make positive steps. You got this!

      Go you! You can do it too. 🙂

      We have several top your own froyos that we like, one that we love, and one we could walk to if we’re careful…and not lazy! So far, we’ve only gone to that one if Daddy-O is in town, but I won’t comment on ice cream from the Stewart’s nearby.

    Since I gained the 22 pounds from not smoking I don’t feel comfortable in anything and I refuse to go shopping because I feel like that’s me accepting the weight. I guess I’ll start with 3 lbs at a time.

    • Court says:

      One of the reasons I really like the 3lbs is that generally (for me) if I’m good for 3 weeks I’ve met or surpassed my goal. And meeting one makes me look at the next in a more positive light. 🙂

      I’m so proud of you for quitting smoking.
