My flatmate I started going running with was sick last week and I didn't have the motivation to do it myself. (She, on the other hand, lost four pounds from not being able to eat, and vomiting - not on purpose, I might add . . . )
On top of that I just had too much to do, and alcohol accessibility was waaayyyy too easy. I definitely think cutting down on alcohol for a while is key to my progress here.
Here we go again I guess . . .
