Falling off the Wagon Hurts {Get Healthy Get Fit Series}

Welcome back to the Get Healthy & Fit series here at Authentic Simplicity! Joining me are 18 other bloggers, all desirous of improving their health and raising their level of fitness. We each have a different goal in mind and a different plan to reach that goal; and you can follow each blogger’s progress here. Follow along on Twitter and Pinterest as well!

I discussed my personal goals at length the first week, but to sum up, this is what I’m hoping to do in the course of these 12 weeks:

  • Kick my sugar habit
  • Lose approximately 10 lbs. and a few inches
  • Fit in my clothes
  • Develop sustainable habits like eating more proteins and fewer carbs


This week, I totally fell off the wagon.

Ouch. It hurt.

So I’m clambering back up on it again, anxious to get back into healthier low-carb eating, now that the majority of the junk food is gone from my house. That sweet tooth really has a death grip on me, and once I give it an inch, it happily takes a mile! (I just mixed a bunch of metaphors, but hopefully you still understand me.)

This Week’s Update

Consequently, my stats aren’t great this week. Not quite as bad as I expected, which is good. But not great.

Weight: 135.2 (still down from starting point)

Waist: 31″ (surprisingly the same)

Butt: 40″ (also surprisingly the same)

    Thank you for realing.

    This is way more fun and exciting to watch you all go for this at once, what a great idea. The post caught my attention because I agree, falling off the wagon hurts, mostly my pride. It was good to have another soul that felt the same. :) I wish you all good luck, this will be fun to be a part of… from afar! :D

  4. You can do it, Anne! I know it’s hard and it stinks.
