Hello all!

It IS March already. Man - I'm not showing the virtual world any love lately.

WELL...OK, I'll fess up. Between mid-January weigh-in and the last week in February weigh-in I am (gulp) up 5.2 lbs. There you have it. I've been totally OUT of it. I'm not making any promises and what I'll do - because I obviously have no accountability to myself here. Still 0.6lbs under goal though.

SO - I'm going to Phat Camp with Phit-n-phat in June. Gotta start prepping for that. I also found my sign-in card for the gym, so when I'm ready to re-join I won't need to buy another one. Hubby is still on permanent evenings - so that still sucks.

What HAVE I done? Well, I realized my 'environment' was going to pot. Well, dirty pots, spilled molasses, frozen cake in front of the frozen veggies, pie on the counter, candy at eye level in the pantry instead of up high. You get the picture right? So, I resolved to fix it. I cleaned the pantry and am trying to take back ownership for the groceries that come into the house again.

I've also re-established my weekly meetings with my friend and unofficial life-coach. We're working our way through some 30 year-old Anthony Robbins tapes. Continuous improvement is important. I mean change is inevitable - we're not going to be in this same place next year anymore than we were here last year. Changing in a positive direction though is entirely under your control.

Next on my list is moving my computer into the dining room space and cleaning up my gym space. Right now the computer and related clutter as well as winter gear have taken over my gym space.

Just came across your blog. Don't worry too much about that 5 pound gain. You'll lose it in no time.

Please be sure to post about your experiences with Phat Camp. :)

They say confession is good for the soul. Hope it helps you.

So glad you're back. I've missed you. But I do understand staying away when things aren't going the way they should.

Hey there!!! So you gained a little...5.2 isn't that bad. It could have been a lot worse! You will get back on track and drop those 5 pesky pounds. Sounds like you've already identified the problems and you've come up with a solution. You will do it, I know you will. So good to see you posting!

I hear ya on the "sucking" thing. I am up too! *sighs... oh well
Least your doing some positive things with the life coach and at least making plans to get back to the gym.
Im finding it really hard to get motivated to get back to my walking. Maybe when the weather gets warmer...I HATE cold weather!!
much lve and hang in there...
