Back on the Wagon

I don't talk about falling off the "lifestyle change" wagon much but those of you who know me, and how hectic life has been for me lately, know that I haven't been going to the gym regularly and that I stopped doing the Weight Watchers thing a while back. Well it shows.

It got really bad this semester when the baby went back to the sitter's because it changed my route. It was a lot easier to go to the gym before because I used to pick him up from pre-school first, then my daughter, and the gym was really close to her school. So I would just proceed to the gym from there, even if it was for a quick half hour of circuit work.

That all changed when I took the baby back to the sitter's. I got lazy because now I pick up my daughter first, then the baby at the sitter's. I had to drive all the way back out towards my daughter's school again to go the gym.

One good thing about the my daughter being out for the summer will be that I don't have to worry about homework for a while! I will be able to pick them both up at the sitter's at the same time and we'll go to the gym from there without any excuses at least twice a week. I'm going to start going to the gym during lunch again.

I also rejoined Weight Watchers Online. We'll see how it goes this round. I have some really big goals this time around. I need to have them, for both health and vanity reasons. I have my 20 year reunion next year! We had a 5 year, 10 year and 15 year small one, so it's not like people haven't seen me over the years, but it's still a good idea to have a little bit of pride.

My mom and I used to always joke, "Una mujer tiene que tener una poca de dignidad!" Meaning of course that women needed to have some pride and dignity. Which is why I hardly ever leave the house without some make-up. You just never know who you will bump into.

Today was my first day back on Weight Watchers and I'm proud to say I did really well. What I like the most about Weight Watchers is that it makes you accountable. It makes you write down what you eat each day. I'm not usually good at that so this forces me to do it.

It's late and I have to check on my laundry, pack a gym bag, and pack the baby's bag. I'm sending another round of queries out this week. Good night!
