It is always interesting that whenever you take on a major lifestyle change the old habits always seem to find a way to creep in when you let your guard down. They find the cracks in your resistance and slip on through with ease. For me it was stress from school that got me eating like I used to and skipping my cardio. I tend to eat when I want to get my mind off of whatever is stressing me. That is why I reached 206lbs back in law school, as I was constantly stressed out back then.
Thanks to my continued resistance training I haven’t fallen too far off track, but for a perfectionist like me, I am INCREDIBLY frustrated that I am still hanging around between 167 and 171 lbs. I should be 159lbs by now. Well, I would be, if I hadn’t succumbed to my basest urges.
So now is a time for rededication of sorts. To throw myself back into this fully and fit into this shirt– not to mention make it look good! So for the next two weeks I am going to reintroduce cardio and bring my eating back under control- no more cookies or chips!
