Ups, Downs, Still Staying Strong #Mamavation Monday

Okay, I know it isn’t Monday, and I’m three days late. To be more precise I’m actually 10 days late, since I didn’t post at all last week.

I’m a slacker.

I know it seems that way, but I’ve been really busy. Life got in the way, and although I had an awesome week the week before last, last week was a bit of a let down. A challenge. A frustration. I just didn’t want to talk about it on Monday. I’m not proud of the way I was feeling. But it is what it is…

I applied to two weight loss challenges/programs recently. I know I was/am already on my weight-loss journey, but I really thought the extra motivation would help me. Maybe I could at least reach my goal weight sooner.

Alas, I wasn’t chosen for either one.

Don’t get me wrong, I am thrilled for all the bloggers that got chosen for both of these challenges. Thrilled! Yet, I have to be honest, I was a wee bit disappointed I wasn’t picked. I mean I have shown I’m already on my way to losing weight. I’m motivated. I’m determined.

Why am I not a good candidate?

Cue the violins. I had a little pity party. Shame on me. Seriously… Shame. On. Me.

I’m good now. I would have liked to have been a part of the challenges, but I realize, I am. I am on my own weight loss journey along with everyone else out there like me. If YOU are losing weight or wanting to lose weight, whether publicly or privately, we are all in this weight loss challenge together. So here’s to us!

My stats for the week of February 4th – down 2 pounds. Last week – 0 pounds.

I had a bad week last week. I ate out more than usual. Valentines Day I ate too many chocolate covered stawberries, and I only exercised one day. But I didn’t gain any. That’s good, right?

I still HATE running. As soon as the Color Me Rad run is over, I’m not sure if I’ll ever run again… unless something/someone is chasing me.

I’m already off to a better start this week, so we’ll see what next Monday’s weigh-in holds.

If you’re on a lifestyle change or weight loss journey, how is it going?
