I don't have a good reason, really. I've got about 800 excuses though:
- It's too cold
- There's ice on the ground and I can't run because I will fall and break and break my ankle (<-- valid. I refuse to run when it's icy)
- I'm busy
- I don't want to cook
- I don't have time to cook (100% a lie)
- I don't know what workout to do
- I'm giving myself time to adjust to the new job
- I'm scared of Jillian Michaels
- Why should I start the 30-day shred if I'm not going to commit to doing it when I'm home over Christmas?
The last one is a sad weak pathetic excuse. What kind of self-defeating mumbo jumbo is that?!?! There is absolutely no reason I can't bring my Jillian Michaels DVD home with me and stick to it when I'm home.
The more I think about it though, the more I realize that two things are currently sabotaging me:
1) I'm less than 20lbs from my goal weight. I'm comfortable. Too comfortable. I'm eating/drinking/living life like I'm in maintenance mode. So, really, should I be shocked that I'm maintaining instead of losing?

2) Maybe this is strange, but I'm much better at balancing my schedule when it's completely jam packed. When that happens I become extremely regimented, so as to not drop one of the many balls I'm juggling. I haven't been too busy the last few weeks, which means relaxing, and not doing any morning workouts, and generally slacking on my eating more than I should.
There's a light at the end of the tunnel though. I'm absolutely loving the new job so far (!!!) and I now have free access to the gym in my new office. If that isn't a good reason to at least pound out 30 minutes on the dreadmill at the end of the day, well, I got nothin'.
Good talk, guys. Time to get back on track.
How do you get back on track after falling off the wagon?
