Off the WagonSo. Yeah. After being on a high from finishing the Bob Harper/Mamavation Two Week Challenge, I crashed and burned. Thanksgiving came and the word “moderation” wasn’t even on my radar. Neither was exercise. And now I feel like I am back at square one.


I won’t lie. I’m not happy, and there’s a big part of me that would just like to say “screw it!” and give up. But I am not going to do that. I have a group of women I am accountable to that won’t let me do that, thank goodness! Time to get back on the wagon. Time to swallow my pride, pick myself up, and start again. I had to remind myself that this isn’t about me; it’s about my family. It’s about being the best mom I can be for my kids.


So here are my goals for the week:

Water, water, water. I need to get back to drinking at least 64 ounces of high quality H2O a day.

I need to eat breakfast every day. Skipping breakfast gets me into all kinds of trouble.

Gotta get moving. It’s getting cold, so I need to bust out the workout DVDs and get off my rear.


Here’s to starting over again…again!
