Too Many Excuses

Just to be frank I haven't exercised in over 3 weeks. It's disgusting. I feel disgusting. I would say it's not necessarily my fault. I would say that my younger brother was visiting for two weeks and I got swept up. I would say that I had to take a trip to Memphis to find a new place to live next month. I would say that my dog chewed up my work out shoes (all these things are true btw). But, there are no excuses that can compensate for the fact that I've been too lazy to care about my health.

Despite my new found sedentary lifestyle, I HAVE been relatively sticking to my low carb diet which is a major win. I stepped on the scale today and I am 291.8 lbs. That's the lowest I've ever seen the number and only 3 lbs to go until I hit 30. I know that if I would have been taking better care of myself I would have surpassed 30 lbs already, but I at least want to celebrate the fact that my lifestyle has changed for the better. Sure I still drink beer...but not everyday it's always light beer. I've cut wine out to almost non existence. I eat nuts instead of candy.  Sparkling flavored water over soda. I've beefed up my vegetables everyday. I'm just really conscious of what I put in my mouth. I haven't gone crazy about it either. While in Memphis, I had to eat bagels and orange juice for breakfast because that's all they had! And its okay.

Today I'm vowing to get back on my exercise kick because I want to see 30 lbs by the end of the month.  I can do this...I will  do this...

say it pray it do it!
