That's Pushin' It!


Okay I have used up all my excuses.
So what has happen?? The scale is creeping up into the territory that I never, ever wanted to see again. So what do I do?? Do I continue to allow that to happen?? HELL NO!!!!
It's not all bad, my activity level is the best it's been this last month... consistently too. I'm meeting my calorie burn goal more days than not and the quality of the foods I'm choosing have never been better my whole life.
The problem is I'm eating too much and I'm not telling myself no as much as I used to.
The Madeleine cookies, invented by someone who sold their soul to the devil, has probably had a little something to do with it as well. I've been pretty consistent about those too. ;)

I've adjusted my goal weight... Raised it four pounds. My body didn't want to hang out at 140 with my activity level.. so goal is now 144. I've gained enough that I've got 10-12 pounds depending on the day to lose to get there... but I'll do it.
I tried running again a bit and I've had sore muscles next to my shin bones for the last three days, after only 2 small outings.  My side is fine.
One of my friends keeps saying that running isn't for everyone, and I agree... but I'm just not ready to walk away from the idea yet.  I'm a bit stubborn I guess, or slightly masochistic, one is definitely true, and the other appears to be true on occasion, but I do have a low threshold for pain, so I'm not going to get too worried about that one.
I've been working on getting rid excuses. I've noticed I've accepted far too many from myself and though I don't feel I need to raise the bar on what I expect... I just need to hold myself  accountable. Overall, my areas of focus (other than my weight) have been moving in the right direction. Just need to stay the course and turn up the determination! All is never lost, as long as you stay in the fight! Right?
