It is Tuesday and you know what that means. It is time to cleanse the soul of all the trangressions of the past week. The lack of exercise, the bad food, the lack of fruits and veggies, you know the drill. Maybe you are one of the lucky ones that gets to confess that you had a great week. Unfortunately, I am not one of those people.
We are coming down to the final weeks of this challenge and I have a few things to confess. I have not done my best this week or in this challenge actually.
1. I have lost weight in this challenge, but not because I have worked really hard at it. I’ve lost weight because for most of this summer it has been so hot here, I hardly wanted to eat.
2. Because of the heat, I also hardly wanted to exercise. I started out great guns with the Sisterhood boot camp and then the heat hit and I fizzled on that too. The only real exercise I have done this summer was in my pool.
3. I did okay with some of the challenges, but not all of them.
4. I appear to be blaming the heat for all my failures which is partly true, but not totally. I just used the heat to excuse my lack of commitment.
That all stops now. Team 4 (my team) has been in second place for the last two weeks. I helped get there with my weight losses, but I can do so much better. This is the first week in ages that the temperature has become bearable. I am going to use that as my springboard to get back in this challenge.
I start back to school next week and I know that is a good thing. It puts me on a schedule. I know just how much time I have for things. It means I will have to get up in the early morning. The day after labor day starts my night time classes again. When I’m at school, I can’t snack. These are all good things that are going to put me back on track for the last weeks of Burst into Summer.
So that’s what is going on with me. How about you? Good week? Bad week? Pull up a keyboard and tell us all about it and put your link in the comments. No matter what kind of week we all had, there is no time like the present to turn it around. All we have to do is want it!
