Mamavation Monday: Slip Slidin’ Away

Slip slidin’ away
Slip slidin’ away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you’re slip slidin’ away

– Simon and Garfunkel

Ever since my birthday in the beginning of November, I’ve been lazily “maintaining” rather than working to achieve fitness and weight goals.  I still walk a few times a week, but I can’t remember the last time I picked up my hand weights or grabbed a Wii fitness game to change things up.  I made it through the birthday/Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year’s period with only a weight gain of four pounds, but three weeks into the new year, I haven’t begun to lose those four pounds.

I lost thirty pounds and completely transformed my body, but the bottom line is, I would like to have lost forty pounds before I moved into maintenance mode.  Those last ten pounds are always the hardest, right?  So what do I do to get to my destination instead of sliding back towards where I started?

I am a goal driven person.  When I write something down and post it somewhere that I can see it, it always happens, no matter how big the challenge.

Today I am giving myself a fixed date by which I will have lost this four pounds plus the additional ten.  I’m going to stop the slip sliding and regain forward motion.  I can’t wait to have a reason to provide you with updates again!  Thank you for sticking with me on what I’m finding is a continuing journey.
