So since the paleo challenge has ended for me I have somewhat gone back to my old ways of eating. When that wasn’t a success, then I decided to try a tried and true program-Weight Watchers. When I was a kid and I was over 250 pounds at 11 years old, Weight Watchers was my saving grace and working out. I got thin by high school and then after high school and my mid 20’s I put it all back on plus another 60 more. I lost 70 of it a year and a half ago and put 30 back on when I had surgery last summer. Needless to say weight has been a struggle my whole entire life. You would think I would have learned once, but somehow I let my self get back to it each time. So, Weight Watchers I went back again and guess what….SUCESS! I lost 5 pounds my first week. Did I eat paleo? Not everyday. Today I ate my points and then had to eat veggies as my snack because I was out of points and those are free!
Sometimes we have set backs and we need to just find that inner strength to carry on. My other set back lately has been an Achilles injury. Which has taking me away from Crossfit in which I love so much. I feel like a lost, depressed gal this week because I wasn’t able to get into the gym. I am looking forward to getting back into the routine but, slowing down and doing what I need to do to help my injury.
I have friends and peers who tell me I am still their inspiration. I am so terrible at taking compliments, but their inspiring words are what helped to get me back on track. I have a goal in sight and I know I need to keep plugging away at it and continue to live a day at a time and do what works best for me! Love yourself and do something wonderful for yourself. Pay it forward and show love to others.
