No more denial much more sacrifice
This week I lost one pound and only exercised twice. Over the weekend I hurt my arm, so I have been taking it easy. Eli was going to start p90x this week, but he injured his hand and caught a cold and was unable to start. I might try to do some of the workouts (They are not meant for beginners or those who are pathetically out of shape like me). I might only be able to do portions of the workouts, but I need a change from my usual pilates videos. Eli plans on doing the p90x diet as well which will take a lot of sacrifice on his part. He has vowed to follow the diet exactly including giving up coke for skim milk and eating arugula which is disgusting to him. I think I need to sacrifice a bit more of the things I love in order to get the results I want. So far, I have been taking it easy and not sacrificing enough and that is why I am down only 2lbs in an entire month. This week I realized I am still in denial about my weight. I went to get some new clothes and seeing myself in the full length mirror was a definite eye opener. February is a tough month with the superbowl, valentines day and I also have two of my kids birthdays this month. I have got to stop making concessions for things that come up because there are always too many good reasons to cheat.
