Getting Back on the Wagon

Have you ever heard the expression, “Falling off the wagon”?  Of course you have!  It happens to all of us no matter what it’s with or for.  People fall off the wagon when they are trying to lose weight, eat right, get healthy, read more, walk more…..I think you get the point.  But the fact is, I fell off the wagon, hard!  I fell off so hard I broke both legs and couldn’t even get up to run and catch up the the wagon to get back on.  Now that’s falling off.

I’m the type of person who needs to fail in order to realize how bad or how far off track I really am.  And it took me stepping on the scale to get to that point.  Today I stepped on that scale and wanted to cry.  Seriously, why is it so mean to us all the time?! I know I have been eating very poorly, but I thought since I was still working out that I would at least stay the same…WRONG!  This just goes to show you how important your diet and nutrition really are and how all those little cheats really add up.

So I went to the grocery store, bought all the veggies and a few fruits I could fit in a basket and went to work.  So for the next 6 days, until I go to Chicago for a wedding I will be “cleansing”.  Since I did the 3 Day Refresh back in March, I always go back to a diet I came up with very similar to that to help me get on track when I start to get a little sidetracked.

Today is Day 1 and so far so good!  I just hope I lose this water weight so I don’t feel so bloated for the wedding I am going to next weekend.  Fingers crossed.  Stay tuned for updates and to see how I do in the next 6 days!! Below I added pictures of me now and from after I finished Insanity Max 30.  You can see I’ve put back on a little weight so it’s time to get serious again and get at it! IMG_4101 IMG_4102
