I suppose I should be happy that I haven't blown up. This weekend my local RWA Chapter had our annual Retreat. I love our Retreat. It's so different from the frenetic writing conferences where you're running around from workshop to workshop. For under $200.00 you get to come and hear a nationally known author give a couple workshops, room, food, and great company in a relaxed setting. I wore jeans all weekend. I highly recommend it, even if you're not a writer. We have people come who say it's cheaper coming to us even with buying airfare than going to their own local conference.
Anyhoo. For Retreat, the members always bring goodies to share. By goodies, I mean usually chocolate. I brought Cracker Candy, which I redubbed Crack Candy that I got from Angela James's blog. http://whippedout.com/2009/12/09/easy-christmas-cookie-cracker-candy/ It was a big hit, everyone loved it. There was a lot of food and I ate more than I usually did, but I forced myself not to gorge out. I think I had a lot of restraint. I guess my restraint worked, because I seriously thought I'd be bigger than what I actually was. As, I didn't work out all weekend despite packing clothes to go run. I just couldn't get up and motivate myself to do it. Plus Friday and Saturday night, I stayed up late hanging out chit chatting with everyone. I also have a bad cold, so I wasn't in the mood to get up and run in the morning.
So, I'm thinking I just too darn lazy and motivation is my problem.
How can I stay motivated to figure out how to break past the wall and not only get under 150 pounds, but stay there? I'm wondering if I should switch up my work-out program.
What do you think?
