No Excuse September

I just looked back and realized I haven't updated this blog since April.  Makes sense, because that's right about the time I fell off the wagon in my diet and exercise regime.
It really defies common sense.  When I was working out, practicing yoga regularly, and eating reasonable healthily, I felt happier, more mentally alert, and much more patient with my fellow human beings.
But once I started falling off the wagon, it felt impossible to claw my way back on.  This led to less energy to exercise or run.  So my descent continued.
I did find a new yoga studio that I like okay.  I still do want to try crossfit, but I'm afraid I will physically die if I try.
And I'm trying to decide if I want to try weight watchers with a friend, or if I just want to go back to My Fitness Pal, which was very successful for me before.
I absolutely hate people who are constantly getting super excited about the next big weight loss thing, only to drop off of it a week later, so I have tried just to not even discuss my setback and how blue I'm feeling about it.
I don't like to be perceived as feeling sorry for myself, and that's not really how I'm feeling about it.  More like, just irritated with myself because I know I can do it, I have done it, but I won't do it.
But I'm definitely working my mind around to doing it again.  I signed up with some really great friends to run the Princess in February so I need to get my head in the game.   Getting picked up by the "slow people" cart would absolutely suck.
The one thing I will say in my defense is summer in Arizona is like winter in the rest of the world, only backwards.  Too freaking hot to do anything.  But it's starting to cool down now, it was only 103 no excuse September is here.
