Yeesh, 5.5 weeks since I last blogged.
Yes I am a horrible blogger.
When I last stopped by I was on my way to the Wine and Dine Half and then Avengers Half on the following weekend. Well I did it survived both.
Of course I intended to write recaps of both races but that now seems silly as it was well a month ago. So instead I'll share a few highlights before I get really deep and more in line with the title today - Me vs Me.
The first run for my Wine & Dine weekend was the Mickey's Jingle Jungle 5k, I was in the start area and when I saw Mickey and Minnie I literally skipped over to them.
Now I find myself one week away from my Christmas cruise, no runs involved with this one just a straight up vacation.
Let me back up again so shortly after returning from Disneyland I was off to Victoria for a week for a course. Remember how I said I'd track for the whole time away. - I didn't.
While in Victoria I didn't either.
I got home stepped on the scale and saw a number that woke me up. It was awfully close to my start weight and by start weight I mean the very first time I walked into a WW meeting.
That totally shook me. I skipped the meeting last week as my head was in the sand. It took another week but I went yesterday and I'm so happy I did. One of WW friends discovered she's cancer free. How amazingly wonderful is that.
I don't want to me by own enemy anymore.
I'm setting my sights forward, so yes the cruise. Of course cruises are famous for weight gain but I have a strategy. They have a super nice gym - my goal to visit daily.
I am travelling by myself so I set my agenda for the day. The other thing I did is book excursions that involve walking no sitting at a beach.
Oh I will track, why will it be different this time? I have a goal to arrive home lighter then when I left.
Last weeks meeting topic was My Losing List, writing down all the reasons why you want to lose weight. Not stopping at "I want to be healthy", why do you want to be healthy? Well I made my list yesterday and I wrote it down in the front of my 3 month tracker.
I do feel like a switch has been turned on in my head. Now it's just one foot in front of the other.
I also want to blog more, though I hear wifi is stupid expensive on the boat so that may have to wait.
I might drop by before I leave.
I hope all is well with you.
