Coming back from Hiding.

I don't know if i deserve to type on this blog.  I have neglected it for so long.  That action Mirrors my life. 

Let me recap the last year.  Jan 2013 my starting weight was about 208 I was able to get down to 190 before going back up to 208 for Jan 2014.  I am still working out, crushing bootcamp!  I have done a lot of repeat runs and improved my times.  Its my eating that is just not in control. I know that you can not out run a bad nutrition program but...but nothing.

I do fine all day.  I drink water all day.  Then the clock strikes 6 and the floor falls out from under me. I drink more coffee (instead of water),  I have an extra snack after dinner.  But the real damage comes later when i binge on PB and nutella or a cookie or two.  If i get stressed at work I do turn to Chocolate. 

Yesterday we had a snow day. Seriously only the 2nd time we have closed ever and we didnt even get that much snow.  About a foot over a 16hr period.  Anyway.  I ended up on this blog reading my posts from 2011 when I was so successful with meeting my goals.  I was in such a different mindset.  I need to get back to that place.  I need to hold myself accountable.  So I need to use this space as place to do that.  Be honest with myself and those they are so kind to visit.  

If I slip up I need to make sure I accept it and move on.  I can not let a slip up become a disaster day.  I need to stick to my training plan and my nutrition.  I need to be stronger at night and go to bed earlier!!

In 6th months I am taking part in my first triathlon.  Its the Iron Girl Syracuse.  I will be in the best shape on that day.  I need to be 100% committed starting now to that event.  It is a bucket list item. I want to do well and finish strong. 

I know I can do this.
