"Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon, and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." - George S. Patton

Trying to Get Skinny Sucks

Well crap. Sorry I missed a couple of days blogging. I know I promised I would write every day of my Challenge, but with 3 kids and a job and actually doing all of the OTHER things I promised to do, sometimes I don't wanna.

Since I can only take one day off from the exercise per week, I suppose I have to go until next Sunday before I get a break. I accidentally took Saturday and Sunday off from working out this week. There is a valid reason, though. Friday night my girlfriends all got together for a few cocktails. I can't pass that up, right?! I accidentally had a few too many of said cocktails, thus leaving my body extremely dehydrated and useless on Saturday. Sunday was a no-go because my husband went fishing ALL DAY, and the gym's daycare isn't open on Sunday. You see? Semi valid excuses.

My weight isn't flying off as quickly as it has in the past. This is either because my metabolism is slowing down in my elderly age, or I'm not doing the dieting right. I have stayed right around my calorie goal every day, and I'm making healthy choices. Really, I think my body just secretly likes being fat so it's fighting me.

I will win.
