Keepin' it Real

I had a blog post planned for today. A couple different ones that were actually home related.  But, in the spirit of being transparent and you guys keeping me accountable in my endeavor to get healthier I'm going to talk about the weekend.

It was a massive failure in the quest for healthiness. I ate a ton of unhealthy food. Consumed a variety of rum, tequila, and wine. And was absolutely lazy. I haven't worked out since Thursday. I wore a maxi skirt and a fitted shirt to work and I'm showing off a serious food baby. It's super gross. And I feel gross.

I was planning to continue that failure this morning with a stop at Sonic for a breakfast burrito and a cherry limeade.  But thanks to some sweet blog comments from a good friend, I was reminded I need to stay accountable to myself. I probably should have read them before not getting up to work out. Then I might have actually gotten my morning workout done.

But, I'm back on track. I am going to be successful. One little set back is not going to ruin the journey. Because I am worth the effort.  So, here's to a healthy day.  I hope you guys had a restful Labor Day weekend. I'll be back tomorrow with a post about some ridiculous yard work we got done.


  1. Okay I have to admit that the tequila and rum sounded really good. Sometimes I wish I drank more...is that bad? lol I'm too cheap to buy it at restaurants and to lazy (plus don't have the ingredients) to make anything at home.

    Also, we all fall off every now and then. We went to Olive Garden yesterday (we only go a couple times a year) and since both hubby and me were STARVING when we arrived we stuffed ourselves to the gills and even took dessert home. We both felt SICK for the rest of the day. I hate that and I hate doing it over and over and it really makes it hard to be an engaged parent when you feel like crap.

    I have been thinking more about clean eating since I read it here yesterday...maybe even trying to have some dairy-free days (in my dreams I'm a vegan and not just a vegetarian).

    1. Come on over, I've got plenty to share.

      Mmm, Olive Garden is so good! But you're right, that overfull feeling is so gross. I'm back on track today and I already feel so much better. I'm trying really hard to document what I eat and when I exercise. I feel better when I'm being healthy, I guess the laziness isn't really worth it.

      Vegan, wow! I don't know if I could do that. We're total meat eaters at my house, I try to stick to lean meats though. I'm allergic to so much of the normal proteins vegetarians go for. But we're definitely trying to eat less processed foods and a little cleaner any way.
