I have these jeans I wear all the time but they are tight on my thighs and I never button them because the button digs into my tummy roll (LOL...embarrassing). Anyway, I must have been sleepy because I put them on yesterday morning to go to work. All day I'd been wearing them and not paying attention...but when I finally realized. I HAD BEEN WEARING THEM ALL DAY AND THEY WERE BUTTONED!!! No jumping around or tugging them on...

Saturday, I fell down the stairs and overextended my tendon and bruised my arch. I've been keeping off it besides the normal walking. The swelling has gone down, and last night I played some sand volleyball. During it was fine, but today it's a little sore and swollen. Anyway, so I'm off of it till Monday. I postponed my Crossfit till then.
Due to not working out, I think I started eating terribly and over-eating. I think the work outs were giving me the same 'fix' as food normally does. Now that I don't have my work outs, I've been turning to food. UGH! Luckily I have moments when I eat great! So it's not all been bad.
Saturday, March 1st I'm starting a paleo challenge with my friend Jenny. It will be 6 days a week paleo and 1 day of cheating. This way it's not so restrictive. If you've read my previous posts, you know I can't do super stricted! I think 1 cheat day will definitely help plus Monday is soooo close so I can get my fix through crossfit!

One of the biggest things I get hung up on is the possibility of failure. I don't want to fail so I put up walls and guard myself from ever failing, but this fear has paralyzed me from even trying.
I will fail. I will fail repeatedly. It is guaranteed. But with failure comes success, and if I'm failing then I'm trying. I will try with all my heart. Over and Over again!
Let's give up on that fear or the notion that we are going to fail because
WE WILL FAIL, but I'm going to PROCEED ANYWAY! Who's with me?!
I'm changing my thinking. Failure is progress! Not something to be feared, hated, or ignored!

Pump it up! I got my second wind last Sunday. I got back into gear, stepped up my game, pumped up the jam! I found www.dailyburn.com which is an awesome site. It's like a personal trainer in an app. You can do your workout video anywhere you have a device (roku box, ps4, wii, computer, phone). Super cool. Yesterday I did my 15 minute stretching video at my office to wake up from my Thursday slump! I've been burning calories!
I found a great accountability buddy. Anytime I want something like McD's Breakfast McGriddle, I think, "Do I really want to tell her I ate that...NAH!" So far so good. This week has been a perfect blend of stepping up my game without getting strict with "should's" and "shouldn'ts"! I haven't felt restricted or that panicked feeling when I say, "No you can't eat that!' Then my brain says, "EAT IT NOW CUZ YOU'RE NEVER GOING TO HAVE COOKIES AGAIN!!!!!" (which may seem ridiculous but it happens).
All in all, I'm on track and getting healthy/fit!!
