I’m disappointed in me. My waistline has expanded beyond my circumference of comfort. While driving from the supermarket this evening, I felt belly fat spilling over the front of my skinny jeans. My thighs aren’t vigorously rubbing together when I walk yet. But earlier today, they felt a little too snugly with one another while I was sitting on the couch.
The extent to which I’m feeling let down by my own lack of discipline isn’t evidenced in this week’s Eats for the Week. Once I start back working out, my menu plans will look a little healthier. I reckon I’d save three pounds of weight gain this month if I just stopped drinking wine. Wait a minute, wait a minute. I’m talking crazy. Forget I said anything. For now, baby steps.
I’ve been saying I’m heading back to the gym for a few months now. Maybe telling you I’m going to the gym tomorrow will get me out of bed in time. Let’s pretend I actually hit the gym on Monday. The degree to which I’m motivated to go on Tuesday is largely dependent on three factors: 1) my ability to walk without wincing, 2) whether I bump into the cute guy with the skinny, hairy legs, and 3) whether I lock eyes with the disgustingly sweaty, but oh so sexy, guy with the nice back side.
Don’t judge. I gotta get my motivation from somewhere.
