Becoming a better me

Life has been pretty overwhelming this past week or two. Some things have happened in my personal life that I'm choosing not to blog publically about. The only way to go from here is up, in my opinion.
I'm just me...Allie.
But I want to be a better me.
 
I want to be a better
Mom
Wife
employee
blogger
friend
citizen
sister
 
 
My diet has been terrible. Plain and simple. I've gained a good 5lbs back. I haven't been the best employee; sometimes it is easy to get distracted by social media and not be as productive as I could be at my job. Little snarky comments have been exchanged between my husband and I..not the way I want to act towards my love. Just all these little things stack up and start to weigh me down. There are times I just want to hit a "restart" button.
 
I want that motivation to exercise..to meal plan..to plan something fun and spontaneous to do for my little family. I guess my "restart" is now because I feel like I am falling into a major slump. Everything, except Bradley, is affected by my "slump." Bradley continues to be my #1 priority in every way, but there's always room for improvement to be the best mom I can be.
 
Have you ever felt like you were just in a major funk?
How did you get out of it?
 
Restart...starting NOW..

Maybe its the weather! My diet/running has been non-existent lately! I did weight this morning and lost 4lbs of bloat but still 2lbs over what I was weighing. I don't know how to reset. I try starting each day as a new day but I just keep falling back into the bad habits. I feel straight up EXHAUSTED and I don't know how to not feel like this. Good luck! :)

When I get in a major funk I tend to find comfort in food and avoid the scale. Yup.

Then it pisses me off when I get OUT of my funk and step on and see all my hard work undone.

I am just getting out of my last funk (well me moved and had to unpack, adjust, etc and just didnt eat right and slacked) and trying to undo the 15-20 lbs that I regained during my two months off my routine.

I say get up and workout. Even if it is some sit ups, sidebends, etc. It gets your endorphins going and the energy going.

For me, it was seeing the scale and then cutting the sugar back out again. Starting to see the numbers go down on the scale has helped too.

Good luck girl! Keep going. You can do this.
