Off the Wagon

I fell off the wagon. Not only did I fall off the wagon, but I rolled down a hill and landed in a ditch full of fast food. And it was glorious.

Until it wasn't anymore. I've actually been sleeping MORE (bedtime, 10:30...haven't done that in a while) but have been feeling exhausted, irritated, lethargic, and just all around bad. I blame you, McDonalds. I also blame my job...because I loathe it and like to blame everything on it.

The earthquake in Haiti? Violence in the Middle East? AIDS? All my job's fault. Assholes.

The fact that I haven't been to the grocery store in two weeks might also have something to do with this fast food clusterfuck. Oops.

But here I am, feeling like death and doing my Mamavation post a day late. Atleast it's here. I am ready to climb back on the wagon...and I know I have all my Mamavation Sistas there to reach out a hand and help pull me back up.

So what's been going on in CJ's life for the past two weeks? Well, I've pretty much ( say "pretty much" because I'm a commitment-phobic) decided on a complete career change. More to come on that later.

So this week...I pledge to go to the grocery store. And not buy boxed mac and cheese. I will buy whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, and deoderant. I'm keeping this goal fairly simple because I'm coming out of a processed food tornado. And I'm starting classes for the fall semester. I need to ease myself back in.

On a lighter note, sometime between July 25th and yesterday morning, I managed to lose 0.8 lbs...so all hope is not lost.

If you see me around on Twitter this week (@CJinKY) please give me a shout out to make sure I really am back on the wagon, and not lying in the road several miles back.


  1. I'm proud of you for getting back to it at a time when it would be all too easy to give up.

  2. YAY! I was wondering about you today! Glad you're back on the wagon!

  3. Well, think of it this way - sometimes you lose weight more quickly after gaining some because your body was in shock. So let that help motivate you to stay on track. :)

  4. BIIIIIIIIIiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiIIIIIIIIG squishy cyber HUG!!

  5. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at time. I have to keep reminding myself that this weight loss thing is no joke but sometimes we have to tell ourselves its okay to have moments of weakness. we just have to come back that much harder. ;-)

  6. Glad you're back on the wagon! :) But hey, you managed to lose .8 lbs so you're not beating yourself up too much, right? Hope you're having a better week!

  7. Yay! Welcome back :) I am coming back myself this week, so we can work on this together (with all of our Sista's of course!)

    Congrats on losing the 0.8! Looking forward to reading your progress next week :)
