Everyone has them correct?

The question I end up asking myself is.. What am I going to do to overcome them.

Here are my current "setbacks"

I missed breakfast three days in a row.. but I did have a Luna bar this morning.
(I stalked up on those for my desk at work.. it helps to have something here when I forget)

I ate fast food twice this week for lunch.. Same reason.. I forgot (didn't plan) my lunch and so I skulked off to Burger King

I have not done Wii Fit or my Sports active at all this week.

I have absolutely NO excuse.. except that I was gone at night two nights and the other two.. yep.. back on the couch, being exhausted...

So.. It is Friday.. and I am going to be doing housework this evening so I can work on the barn this weekend.. which means... that I will be getting some excersize outside, building and lifting and walking back and forth from the house to the barn.. and on Sunday afternoon, I will be planning out the week and I think I am going to see if I can find a few fun things to help me remember my lunches and breakfasts next week.

It is also time to implement the next phase of my plan.. Consistent Exercise.

I will be posting on my plan for that this weekend...
What are your setbacks and how do you over come them?  I need all the help I can get!

Good luck! You can do this.

I fall into the same fast food thing. The only way to fix it seems to be to set aside some time on the weekend or one night and make up and either freeze or bag things for the week. This way they are easily grabbed in the morning on the way out.

As for the exercise, well, I do it when I have the time. If I'm going through a really committed phase, I just get up a half hour early and do it.(I'm not that committed most of the time though)!

I need a plan too! Actually a group of us at work are going to put $2.00 in a pot each week and start eating healthy and excersizing and weighing in each week. The one who loses the most wins the pot!! Maybe that will motivate us!!

I love that 'win the jar of money' idea! My gym went on holiday hours in mid-December and that has been my excuse - they are not open enough! Their fault. Hahahaha.

Hello, I wanted to stop by and thank you for visiting and joining my blog. I have not been able to make all my rounds lately so I thought I would stop in. Morgans are beautiful horses and I can't wait to look around your blog a bit. Take care and good luck with the exercise! Luanne
