7 Years

My chest infection is currently kicking my butt. With all the coughing and spluttering and very limited lung capacity working out just isn’t an option until I can breathe a bit easier.

I made the decision (mistake?) to weigh myself yesterday and I am officially back to my highest weight, which I last saw 7 years ago.

In the last 7 years I’ve lost and gained within the same 30lbs, never getting lower than 208 but most of the time I stayed between 214-224.

I am honestly unsure as to why I’ve gained the last stone back since March of this year. Yes, my workouts have been less than consistent. My food intake hasn’t changed, in fact it’s gotten healthier (or so I thought…).

I feel motivated to work out and get back on track, but I have to wait unit my chest clears this nasty infection before attacking my weight head on.

I read Bob Harper’s The Skinny Rules and am going to start following them and see how much of a difference that makes. As soon as I stop having random coughing fits I’ll be doing Insanity again, too.

As awful as I feel about being back where I started, I know I’m still miles ahead in terms of my fitness than I was back then. I know a lot more about what I can do and how strong I really am. But that doesn’t change the fact that I am where I am and I have some time to plan while I recover.
