True Confessions – The Shrinking Jeans of Nancy


June 1, 2011 By Nancy

I don’t even know where to start on this one. I have sucked at so much lately. Really I have. I’ll just jump in and see where it leads me.

May is a really bad month for me. It is the manic month of May. There is too much going on and I can’t control any of it. The end of school is the worst part of it. So much to do and so much going on. Most of it is fun stuff, it just requires tons of work on my part. I just keep going like the energizer bunny and hope for the best.

Here’s my problem….with the exception of doing the tworkout while I type this, I can only remember working out twice in the last two weeks. I am scared to death at what it is going to be like when I get back to zumba and boot camp. It is going to be like starting over and I have nobody to blame but myself.

Believe it or not, my eating hasn’t been too bad. I’ve actually been losing a little in this last challenge. I guess that is one good thing I can think about. I guess I have been too busy to eat. That is one good thing busy has done for me. Unfortunately, I haven’t logged on at My Fitness Pal in two weeks.

My nerves and emotions are on edge. I have a couple people in my life that just love to jump on my last nerve. The kicker is if you said something to them about it, they would say I was crazy. The truth is they like to talk about me in the third person on blogs and Facebook like I won’t catch on. It still hurts my feelings. These are people who are always going to be in my life. I may see a showdown on the horizon. My feelings count for something, right?

Well, that’s the ugly confession. No exercise, sad case of nerves, but eating in check. The good news is that there are only seven days of school left. I may be teaching summer school, but that is so much easier than this month was. Only four mornings a week and the pay is great.

The final analysis is that I have to get my head out of my you know where and get back to basics. I can’t use busy as my scapegoat anymore. I had told myself that I was going to get up at 5:00 and workout, but that hasn’t happened, but it really needs to. I have to make time for me in this crazy month. Oh wait, tomorrow is June. Maybe that will help. I guess we’ll see.

Tomorrow is the final weigh in for the May Your Way challenge. How’d you do?
