Looks like we made it...

I have a deep dark secret to share with you.  Ok, you ready?  I LOVE Barry Manilow!!  LOVE LOVE LOVE him!

So his song was echoing in my head as I was in the shower this morning.  We made it.  Through an incredibly shitty week to top off an incredibly shitty start to 2014!!

Yeah, I am not thrilled at how 2014 is starting - it has been just one hit after another.  And, for me, after getting down under 120 FINALLY, I have shot right back there the last 2 days despite excellent eating and exercise.    

Why, body, do you do this to me?

But, I'm going to try to look at the bright spots!  Despite wanting to curl up and eat carbs, I got back on track for the most part with my eating.  Despite miserable weather, I have kept my committment to exercise and have run 136 miles this month - which when I head downstairs to the treadmill tonight - will turn into at least 140.

So, there's nowhere to go but up, right?

Where do you stand as the first month of 2014 comes to a close?  Are you happy with how you began the year or do you need to make some changes?  What do you have the power to do to keep yourself on track if you've done well or get back on track if you haven't?

Recognizing what we do and do not have control of and adjusting and working around that is crucial!

February will be better, right?
