Because I'm all out of Vanilla Wafers

It was bound to happen at some point.  Me, a box of vanilla wafers and a hot bath.  That'll fix most any problem when you're stressed, right?  Ok, so it's not the *best* choice to make.  April was a really hard month for me emotionally - I have to admit that I kinda lost my way there for a while - I was in some kind of funk and couldn't really figure out how to get out of it.  There's no excuse for anything - but, it's time to step away from the vanilla wafers, lol.  So, here we are.  What now?  

I've been stuck - on one of every person who's ever tried to lose weights worst nightmare - a plateau.  Part of it is my fault - a box of vanilla wafers is bound to add a few pounds back, yes?  ;-)  But, I think a large part of it is my body's stress level - which does nothing for sleep, nothing for anxiety and nothing for weight loss except bad things.  BUT - all isn't lost.  School is coming to a close and I'm out of vanilla wafers!!!!  Bootcamp is in full swing and that's good.  And, there are other things on the horizon too (stay tuned!).  What I need right now is some publicity - lol.  You know, some admission of crap that's happened, some time to reflect on ll the crap that's happened and some time to look forward at what I can change instead of wondering why I haven't gotten to my goal weight yet.  The last bit of weight is serious business - yeesh.  

So - here's the new plan:

1. Stop dwelling on the things I can't change. 
2.Stop beating myself up over it.
3. Eat the stuff I know I should be eating
4. get in my lifting time
5. work out at 100% all the time
6. put body flow back into my routine 3X/week
8.Log food and weight to monitor progress.
9.stop dwelling on the things I can't change.

So - hopefully I'll be here posting at least once a week.  I have a whole list of things to talk about - things I've been through, things that can help others and things that will help me moving along on this crazy journey, and I hope you'll all be here to read (and maybe comment too) along the way.  I'm feeling like me again, which feels good.  I think that's really the first step of getting this going again and I'm super thankful I've finally arrived.  (again).

Sometimes we forget where to find the right path on our journey. Just so you know the easier path is the one with friends. Call me anytime! I am almost done with school/work and it will make life good to see you and catch up. Keep it up friend you look great and you have come so far.

Love crystal :)

Mom - I love you. Where would I be without you?! :)

C - I know - I have been such a horrible friend. It's been sink of swim, and I've been doing a lot of sinking in some departments. School has really been killing me - I know you know that. Excuses are lame, so I've got no choice but to just do better. Let's get to planning our girls weekend. :D

Good! I think blogging will be a fantastic outlet for you. You'll break through your plateau, I know it!
