I apologize for the delay.  No excuses.  I need to get back on the blogging and fitness wagon.  So much has happened.  I’ve had my email and Facebook accounts hacked.  I’ve gone on vacation, including a cruise.  I’ve gone through a break up and a car accident.  Whew, I got tired just typing all of that.  The vacation started off great with me attending spin classes in Atlanta that were beyond challenging.  The instructors managed to turn them into upper body workouts and had the entire class boogieing.  I even ate well on the cruise and was shocked at how many healthy options there were.  I did make it to the gym once, and it was beautiful to pedal to the tunes on my Ipod while looking out the window watching the ocean.

When the stress started, I initially lost my appetite.  As time passed, I’ve been fighting the urge to snack, and I’ve lost the battle some.  Comfort food was making a comeback, and I wasn’t in the gym.  That key lime cake was calling my name throughout it’s creation.  I licked beaters of batter, icing, then had nerve enough to eat some cake.  It was phenomenal, though.  Things got even more complicated when I was injured in a car accident.  My back and neck are injured, so the workouts are on hold.  I’ve got to be strong and turn away the delectable chocolate turtles (the undeniable best turtles in the world).  There are yummy munchies all over my mom’s house.  In my mind, I know that I have to be careful with what I’m eating, since I’m not working out.  The issue is getting my mind, my hands, and my mouth on the same page.  Hopefully, I’ll be back in the gym soon, but this is a test of willpower.  I’m determined to win.  I’m coming back to this daily blog, and I’m going to get myself together.  Feel free to keep me on my toes:)  Thanks for sticking with me!
