Falling Behind and Catching Up!

Sometimes life gets too busy and we have to cut things away.

For me, this means Round 3 of 12WBT. I should have taken my $200 and spent it on new shoes!! There are many, many things I love about Michelle Bridge's 12WBT but right now, I have 12WBT burn out!!!! :D I thought this round I would be able to take it home but the only thing I am consistent at, is NOT being consistent!

So once again I have found myself in an up/down yoyo pattern across the board - exercise, food and, of course, weight. So it's time to really work on this mind stuff. The problem is my mind is completely scrambled at the moment. I am flat out keeping track of what I have to do each day or in the next week that I cannot cope with the program on top of that.

My problem is that I can't simply just follow the program - especially on the food side. Financially I can't afford to just buy all the ingredients - I have to constantly modify the menu - to suit my family, to suit our budget... and that takes time that I don't have right now.  On the exercise side there shouldn't be any excuses but the past week in particular has involved me doing paperwork and planning and all other kinds of stuff until 11 or 12 o'clock at night and then I'm up at 5am to get things prepped for the day and then I don't stop again until 11 o'clock at night. I don't function well on 6 hours sleep (if I'm lucky to not have a restless night) for very long!

I tried to prep myself for this round, have everything out of the way - but it just didn't work out that way. Despite my best efforts. I'm human.

So I have decided I'm not going to try and catch up - I am going to take all the information from this round and apply it during "off season". Last year - I lost a fair bit of weight over the Christmas Break - the days were slower, my other half was around - it meant I could exercise WHENEVER I wanted. Food was easy to organise, TIME was on my side.

12WBT has irrevocably changed me. I can never, ever be the person I was again. I know for certain I will never be 100kg again, I'll never be 90kg again!! Right now I am in mid-80s and I am struggling to bust through that but I will. I just don't know when but the key is I am moving forward (however slowly) and I am NEVER going back!!!! :D
