Frank couldn’t have said it better.

The people that know me/follow this blog probably know by now that if I haven’t written a post in over a week it’s probably because I messed up!  I guess I shouldn’t really say I messed up, it’s more like I had an off day and I’ve been EXTREMELY busy lately.

I’m not here to say “sorry for the lack of posts” or “I’m sure you’ve been wondering where I was”. To be quite frank, I’m sure the internet would go on even if I wasn’t contributing to it.

Monday night my lovely husband decided to take me out for a nice dinner because he was heading out of town on business the next day.  He took me to a seafood and chop house and I definitely over indulged.  We started off with freshly baked bread drizzled with lobster oil and balsamic, it was divine.  I ordered the jumbo scallops with a creamy butter sauce, vegetables and wild rice for my main course and the flavors were incredible.  We then took a stroll to a local frozen yogurt place and had a nice dessert. Sounds lovely right? NO.

I got home so stuffed that if my belly had buttons, they would have burst. I was incredibly uncomfortable and completely exhausted. This is when the anger set in; I sat on the couch pouting about what I had just done and how guilty I felt. My husband came in and saw me upset, to which he apologized for taking me to dinner and talking me into dessert.  I yelled and told him that the next time he wanted to take me for dinner to just go to Tiffany’s to buy me a new pair of earrings or something instead (can you say princess much?!).  Really, who yells at their husband for taking them out to dinner?!? After I had cooled down a bit I had a really great conversation with him and told him that it was not his fault. I told him that there are going to be situations that are difficult for me and that I need to learn how to say no.   Man-oh-man the stuff this poor guy suffers through!

Anyways, long story short I’m proud of the new me, the me that gave Tuesday a chance for a new beginning. The me that got back on track to the extent of working out at 11:23PM last night and most importantly the me that had the balls to kick the old me in the ass!!

It feels good to be back!

Make it happen Monday!

life

The past week was torture for me; I was so sick and had absolutely NO energy.

I was un-focused with my diet and exercise and I would usually beat myself up for it but you know what? It’s okay. Yes, I did eat that spring roll and that doughnut but what can I say!?Life happens. I had been VERY strict up until I started getting sick and then it all fell to crap!

You may ask why I think that this behavior is okay?

  1. Because I’m human and we all mess up every now and then.
  2. The difference between me cheating now and me cheating a couple of months ago is the fact that today I know how and when to stop.

Anyways after a weekend full of Kleenex, cheating and NyQuil. I’m finally feeling better, to be honest I actually feel like a million bucks today!  The sun is shining, I have a low-key day at the office and I think I’m going to go on long walk after dinner.

I feel like I have finally reached a point to where I’m not thinking about how many days I have to go, but about how many days I have to enjoy this new way of life.   I know that I’m going to get there and I’m more excited today than ever, to face success.
