Ugh.

On the eating right and exercising front, this week has been a complete bust. I ate like the calories didn’t matter and then I pulled my right hamstring so I haven’t done either challenge for two days. I feel better today but I wanted to give my leg the proper time before testing it. On the eating front, it is incredibly hard for me to eat right while on a budget while feeding three other people who don’t need to lose weight. I guess I need to stop making excuses and start finding solutions.

I want to be real about my failure here. I don’t want to hide it because I’m hoping this will motivate me. I’m tired of being this big. I’m tired of not feeling attractive and uncomfortable in my own skin. I’ve done this before so I’m not sure why it’s so hard this go round. Right before I got pregnant with Justin I lost almost 30 lbs in a 6 month period. I then got lazy, pregnant, and gained every bit of it back. I know I can do this. I just have to actually do it!

On the plus side, I got new shoes! And not the Wal-Mart special either. I also bought a 5 lb. kettle bell. I found some exercises on Pinterest (my favorite thing ever) and thought I’d give it a try. When I get comfortable with 5 lbs. I plan to move up to 10 lbs.

So, while this week may have been a total failure, it doesn’t mean that I’m giving up. Just pushing forward.

  1. Just popping over from MSM! Keep up the good work! You can do it! I find it hard to eat healthy to on a budget too. But I decided my whole family could benefit from having more veggies and fruits too! So far no one is complaining 🙂 Do you have an Aldi’s near you? They have a great produce section and it is pretty cheap too!

    • Brandi, I do have an Aldis but it doesn’t have a great selection. I’m going to keep checking though. My kids love fruits and some veggies, but my husband loves all things fried and fatty. It’s easier to plan healthy meals when he is away at work. Thanks for stopping by!
