I can find lots of things to blame the weight gain on: not sleeping well (we all know sleep is vital to weight loss, right?), new meds that made me hungry ALL THE TIME (nevermind that I stopped taking them about a month ago), the stress of separating and having my youngest child move 2.5 hours away, feeling like a massive failure at work... But what it boils down to is they're all just big fat excuses for being a lazy bum who ate too much crap and drank too much over the last few months.
The one positive to the weight gain is that some of it went to my boobs. First place I lose it from, but at least not the last place I gain it.
I need to lose almost six pounds for my game, but my goal is to lose the 8 I've gained. It's a pretty ambitious goal, especially considering my laziness. Contrary to what many think about me, I hate working out. And I love food. Especially food that has lots of cheese. Especially pasta and breads. And I really like my red wine. But I also like fitting in my skinny clothes. I like not having a major muffin top. I really like buying size small panties. So here we go!

This week's goal is to do some form of exercise at least 20 minutes 3 days and 45 to 60 minutes three days. I'm off to a mixed start. I knocked out week 2 of Jillian Michaels' Ripped in 30. Of course, I also gave in to a nonfat pumpkin spice latte and a bacon/gouda breakfast sandwich this morning after waking at 4:00 am and being on the road from 5:30 to 8:00 am.
Here's a recipe I'll be using to help keep me away from Starbucks and Krispy Kreme. I like to make up a double batch of these (when I'm not too lazy) and freeze them. I pop two in the microwave in the morning.
